Design Language

Döhmann Audio draws on many design influences from the aeronautical, automotive, architectural and technological design styles to ensure the products are functional and aesthetically pleasing. The aesthetic quality of a product is very important because products we use every day affect our person and our well-being.

Products that have well executed functional design can also be beautiful. Great design makes a product self-explanatory. Needless bling is avoided and if a sonic parameter is affected by a design feature then it has to be incorporated to improve the sound.

During his time as an engineer and reliability analyst at an Australian airline, Mark worked on aircraft systems and components where reliability was extremely critical. It was during this chapter in his professional life that he made the realisation:


Our philosophy is that a design should be honest as discerning customers who love music can quickly spot gimmicks. Honesty in design language does not attempt to manipulate the consumer with promises that cannot be kept.

A quality turntable is an investment for the long-term. Good design is long lasting even in today’s throw-away society. A Döhmann design is thorough down to the last detail to ensure the sound reproduction is as faithful as possible to the original source. Nothing more, nothing less.
