For the Discerning Ear

Malone Digital fuses authenticity with precision. We produce sound that is faithful to its analog heritage yet leverages the exactness of digital technology. In doing so, our audio archaeologists reveal the rich qualities that made historical recordings special and combine them with 21st century reproduction. In short, it's the best that both worlds offer. If this sounds like what you are striving for, you have come to the right place.

Perhaps counter-intuitively, it is probably more about what we don't do rather than what we could do. We don't use anything particularly fancy to achieve our goals. Instead, the most powerful instruments in our toolbox are our ears and respect of history. Starting with those, everything else neatly clicks into place. The result is plush, warm, and dynamic sound freed from blemishes and ready for digital consumption.
