The Music, the Sound... our dedication meets your passion.
JMF Audio proves that only very high precision can guarantee very high musicality and fidelity.
"Very high precision" does not only mean superior measurement numbers, the concept goes far beyond ; it is a convergence of scientific rigor and craftsman's work of art to reach the pinnacle of musical rendering : the three dimensional sound stage, the accurate timbres, the subtle ambiances, the fullness, the emotion, the universality...
Only few parameters are measurable with traditional methods and this is where knowhow makes the great difference.
At JMF Audio the head engineers are the managers. The products and the components are designed in-house and built by our experienced technicians, our exclusive gold plated printed circuit boards require hand soldering, the loudspeakers are handmade by our master artisan... A great majority of European components are employed and most of them are made to measure specifically. At last every unit is checked on listening test in our studios after a burn-in phase to ensure that the client receives the best. This is no factory production, this is excellence, this is absolutely unique.
For the world class recording studios, now also for your home...
JMF Audio means over 30 years of experience in audio with references worldwide, servicing the most demanding professionals in terms of musical truth and listening comfort (see history). This knowhow has been developed and is now also at reach of the discerning audiophiles through the JMF Audio reference product line.
To discover it, audio enthusiasts and music lovers are welcome to visit the labs, the workshops, and to listen to 100% JMF Audio systems in our two large listening rooms, in France, on appointment.
JMF Audio products are off fashion and timeless. JMF Audio products are references for natural sounding and true music. Time goes by but quality remains. World class studios have trusted our 1988 products until now and still do not ask for a change. Few makes can pride of such a fact.
JMF Audio products have been associated with other devices and other speakers at customers' places with great success. However a 100% JMF Audio system inspires serenity and is the dream for all. Those who own it are fulfilled.
All JMF Audio products are intuitive to use and do not feature unnecessary options.
There is no other option than beautiful natural sound...

COMENTARIOS - Visitantes, profesionales y periodistas de audio - Visitors' comments:
"We are not listening to a system, we are taking part! Such a subtlety! This is absolutely remarkable. I had never heard such a result in all my career [...] I am retired but in another life, I'd sell JMF Audio only." Once back in Paris: "I must admit I still have difficulties to realize what I heard from my discs. It is starting to miss me. I just wrote an article on my blog to share my experience: > read article (french)" (2014)
David Blecher, ex. manager of Présence Audio Conseil, Paris, respected hi-end audio equipment seller since the mid 70's, former sound engineer.
"An unforgettable sound experience!
It does only exist high sensitivity (unfortunately too rare) mastered (JMF Audio has achieved it) to reach such a realism, being on aspects of: dynamics, energy, swiftness, and image (size of the sound stage!); timbres refinement (indeed here too...); and bandwidth expansion...
A realism that many systems dream of « tickling » one day."
P. Sanches. Audiophile Society President, France, via e-mail (2013)
"Conviction, it is the first word that I wrote on my notes of listening impressions [...] It is absolutely not usual for me, but here I found myself willing to clap the fingers, shake my feet and my head. I really had to keep control and I wondered whether I was going into a frenzy [...] Whichever the type of music, I got seduced with the simple straightforwardness, an emotional direct link with music [...] It is difficult to get an idea from reading the web site [...] My only advice is to accept the invitation that is made on the site to come over and live an intense sensorial experience [...] The first time I came to Saint-Peter-of-Rome, I got amazed [...] Today I find myself in the same situation. I had to leave the article rest for a while not to write under the strike of the emotion [...]"
