About Podspeakers for the modern generation
Danish company Scandyna’s history goes back to 1965 and includes the overwhelming success and iconic status of the Podspeaker range in the 1990s. Today Podspeakers continue to impress hi-fi enthusiasts with their unique design and impressive sound.
The company behind the Podspeakers brand today, EET Group, continues to breathe new life into the Podspeakers range, and to ensure that the speakers match the needs of the modern generation. The digital audio era for streaming services is growing, as are the new concepts of multi-room and interoperability between brands and platforms.

EET Group hopes to bring the brand and history of Scandyna and Podspeakers great success in the years to come, and truly believes, that the design is significant enough to remain iconic as a modern classic that will continue to be relevant to a lifestyle and design oriented global audience.
