Pär G. Risberg was raised on both music and technology. He himself plays several musical instruments and for years has worked professionally to provide sound for concerts and recording studios.
His friends describe him as a nerd—because he totally immerses himself in whatever he is doing. At the University of Linköping in Sweden, Pär G. Risberg took two engineering majors at the same time and was actively involved in developing and testing sound.
Pär succeeded in developing a technology which renders thick power cables for loudspeakers superfluous. At the same time, he based the invention of his products on a digital platform—instead of an analogue platform—and then revolutionized the possibilities by developing a small chip capable of optimizing sound quality, even in small thin cabinets.
Assisted by confident stockholders, including SEB Bank and a select circle of businesspeople and designers, Pär implemented his unique technology in the Opalum Sound System.
