After the Western Electric age, many companies of all over the world has been tried various studies or developments in order to exceed the excellent performance.
However as the results, anybody never reach the excellent performance as like Western Electric.

Then, each audio manufacturer focused to achieving more good productivity and more downsizing than the excellent performance.
It may be said to the history of audio culture after Western Electric is history of downsizing and low cost.

GIP reproduction work of WE Inc products will be start from collecting of WE original speaker unit as many as possible.
Then we checked state of preservation the products, and do analyzing of [material] [structure] [frequency response] [magnetic characteristic] and [impedance characteristic].

But almost WE Inc original products is the state of being defective since it was past 80 or more years from the manufacturing.
These were repaired by quite different parts to WE original.

These had various trouble [no signal] [reversed phase] [included noise]
And these were attached [another corn paper] [another diaphragm] [another voice coil], therefore the sound was completely different.
It is not a few difference caused by individual differences.
These are quite different products.

If someone heared the sound with bought the WE Inc product of bad states like that, he might misunderstand that products of WE Inc sound was bad.
I dó think it's a so pity as one person of lovers of audio.

We want to leave this cultural heritage that the human should be proud toward the future.
We put our all into the development and promotion of audio culture.

We are cherishing them as our company policy and philosophy.
