Many brands will cite contributions to an industry. Magnavox however, lays legitimate claim as one of the original cornerstones of the entire consumer electronics industry. If you have any doubt, ask yourself this...what would the world of entertainment be like if there was no radio or CD player to listen to? What if theaters offered only silent movies instead of the spectacular surround sound we experience?

The consumer electronics industry as we know it today had its beginnings with the invention of the loudspeaker in 1915. It is the very same electro-dynamic principle that drives virtually every modern loudspeaker...in your car...in theaters...in outdoor concerts...and in your home. Because the loudspeaker afforded the world the first example of amplified open-air listening, it was dubbed the ""Great Voice"". Because the inventors (Edwin Pridham and Peter Jensen ) had a fondness for Latin, they translated their ""Great Voice"" into the Latin equivalent: Magna-Vox, and one of the world's most enduring and respected brand names was born.

A lot has happened since 1915, and Magnavox has been a leader all through the ensuing years with famous Magnavox milestones which continued to shape the industry and helped propel it to offer the incredible sophistication and variety of consumer electronics products available today.
