Jürgen Daubert and Rolf Belz (the ‘d’ and the ‘b’) register d&b audiotechnik as a business on 18th April in the town of Korb, a well known wine region near the southern German city of Stuttgart. In that traditional garage, Daubert (right) and Belz (left) are seen constructing the first of those special loudspeaker systems.
d&b moves to a former furniture shop in Steinstrasse, Korb. Somewhat bigger but still rather cosy. This year also sees the first ever d&b system connected to a recording studio in the legendary MAXIM club in Stuttgart.
The first complete product line is put on the market: the F1/F2/B1 range. The 'black boxes from Korb' go into production and German rock star Herbert Grönemeyer takes them on tour.
