The announcement that MasterSounds is closing its doors marks the end of an era in the world of music. This news, communicated by Ryan and his team, has left many DJs and audio enthusiasts with mixed feelings. Since its inception in 2016, MasterSounds has been synonymous with quality and passion in the manufacture of high-end DJ equipment. Now, in 2024, the decision has been taken to cease production of its iconic DJ mixers, FX units, ISO4s and LinearPOWER power supplies. Below, we explore the details of this closure and what it means for the DJ community.


The closure of MasterSounds: Why now?

The decision to close MasterSounds has not been taken lightly. Ryan, one of the founders, explained in his statement that production of the last batches of his products is underway, and once sold, there will be no more. This decision is due to several factors, including the desire of Ryan and his partner, Andy Rigby-Jones of Union Audio, to explore new directions in the audio world. The intention is for these products to become collector’s items, prized for their quality and exclusivity.


A journey that began in 2016

The closure of MasterSounds

From their first meeting in 2016, Ryan and Andy shared a clear vision: to create quality audio products and design on a global scale. This vision was realised in a series of DJ equipment that not only met the highest standards of sound quality, but also embodied principles of simplicity and elegant design, with great attention to the user experience. MasterSounds products quickly gained a reputation for their reliability and their ability to enhance any DJ’s experience.


The MasterSounds philosophy

The philosophy behind MasterSounds has always been to create equipment that offers a unique, high quality sound experience. Each mixer, FX unit and power supply was meticulously designed to meet the highest standards. This dedication to detail and quality has been a hallmark of the brand, making its products indispensable tools for many professional DJs.

Although MasterSounds is closing, the company has assured its customers that it will continue to offer a first-class after-sales service. This means that current owners of MasterSounds products need not worry about lack of support or spare parts in the future. Ryan and his team are committed to maintaining support for their most loyal customer base, ensuring that their products continue to perform to the best of their capabilities.
