Welcome to Ashly Audio

Thirty Years of Professional Audio

With over a thirty year history, Ashly Audio Inc. is recognized as a world leader in the design and manufacturing of quality signal processing equipment and power amplification for use in the commercial sound contracting and professional audio markets. Our philosophy established from the very beginning is to offer only the highest quality audio products to the professional user.

What's in a name?

Before Ashly started manufacturing audio products, it was a 60's era sound reinforcement company founded and run by five individuals.

Contrary to many rumours and myths such as 'named after a pet dog', 'anagram of initials', or 'a girlfriend', the real origin comes from Larry Ashley, one of the founding five. Larry's last name was chosen for the alphabetical advantage when listed of course. To add some mystique to the name and to avoid conflict with another company, the 'e' was dropped.

None of the original five pursued the thrill of manufacturing, but two people in the company, Bill Thompson and Dave Malloy thought it was worth the effort, adopted Ashly Audio for the name and started manufacturing pro audio gear.
