The Harman Luxury Audio Group is proud of the strong professional relationships we share with our dealer partners all over the world. This month, we interviewed Valentín Rivero Garcia, CEO of Arquitectura Aural in Mexico City.
How was Arquitectura Aural started as a company?
The company was founded in 2010 in Mexico City. It started as an Acoustic Design Firm trying to solve one of the last frontiers “ the relationship between room/source and listener”.
What are your strengths and what are your biggest differences from other dealers?
Knowing the physics of sound and its relationships with the listener helps us provide proper setup and advice. Every project has compromises and choosing the right ones can maximize the experiences of our customers.
This applies from simple (sometimes high-end) two-way systems to the design from the start of a given space (turnkey projects).
Please tell us about the history of your partnership with us.
Before this company started, our founder had been in the PA and DJ business where JBL and Crown and AKG had a great name and on the HiFI end, he was influenced by an uncle who had a great Mark Levinson system.
As we have said, we have acoustics in our DNA and as such the research of Dr. Floyd Toole, Dr. Sean Olive and Team are a must. Sidney Harman had great vision in bringing science into his Company. We wanted to be part of this.
Great audio needs science to get the best of it.
What do you hope to see from our products in order to build a good partnership with us in the future?
We would like to see that future product development stay in tune with the science behind great sound. We know that some design factors and usage need some compromising always with great sound in mind. Harman Luxury Brands need to be special and not to be confused with off-the-shelf products.
Lastly, what are your company’s vision and future goals?
We aim to be recognized as “The go to” of Audio lovers (production and reproduction) that have consistent results to different environments and necessities.
