The ultimate task of a high-end audio component is to breathe life into reproduced music and convey to the listener that the soul of the performer lives in each musical event.
In 1954, when CEC was established, the audio industry was still in its infancy. For example, the field of drive motors for phono turntables was largely unexplored.
CEC became the first company to make turntables in Japan, and the products were highly regarded by music lovers.
CEC was one of the leading suppliers of turntables and CD players in the consumer field with major brand OEM customers including Grundig, Marantz, Teac, Sony, Sanyo, Toshiba, Mitsubishi, Alpine, Kenwood, Sharp etc.
For CEC, the aim has always been clear – to create superior, high-end audio products; a quality-oriented policy that has served us and our customers well, regardless of market fluctuations. For this we have inaugurated in 2011 a new company building, as well as a new production facility in Japan.
The first CEC CD player was introduced in 1983. Due to our analog experience our engineers were able to implement the belt drive system to CD transports.
The world’s first belt drive transport was born in 1991 – CEC ‘s TL 1. Since then, CEC has continued to develop and refine belt drive CD transports. A technology for which CEC holds worldwide patent rights.
The result: music reproduction on its highest level.
