Aura was established in England in 1989. Their first product was the Integrated amplifier VA40 whose body was thin, light, and no more than 55mm. Its front panel was chromium-plated and had just controls of volume, selector, and power, which seemed striking and far different from other products apparently in those days. People, who got to like this simple figure, each said “I don’t expect so much. It could be enough to listen to music ordinarily” and generously started to use this peculiar stuff.
As you know, Aura has had a great career after that. Aura has been raised up by many people of good judgement. And then, Aura’s products overwhelmed the audio market of all over the world
from Wothing in England.
In Japan, the late Mr. Keizo Yamanaka also appreciated the fresh and wonderful sound, and the each 13 models that had been released till the production ended in the U.K. in 1997 showed off proudly its existence.
In 2006, the last work of Aura broke a seal and was born into the world by Aura Design Japan Limited. Appearing of “note” which was designed by Pentagram in London means that the designer, Mr. Kenneth Grange, returned to the project of Aura. The music life will start with a universal design proved by “note”.
