Pathos Acoustics is founded in 1994 by the three Italian pioneers: Gaetano Zanini , Gianni Borinato and Paolo Andriolo in the Italian city Vicenza.

The Pathos company was born, but given the market in which they were to operate in it was not an easy delivery: The audio sector is notoriously distinguished by the presence of thousands of brands, it is a small and hard business. But there was (is) for sure space for a brand serving innovative solutions and extraordinary designs. The hi-fi industry needed somebody who dared to follow “The unorthodox approach”. Pathos was therefore founded in the knowledge, that there is sufficient space for those who have something authentically new to propose in that exciting search for the maximum fidelity in the reproduction of music.

The PHILOSOPHY that accompanies the Pathos brand, "the unorthodox approach", effectively created the benchmark of the business philosophy: the Pathos approach to the reproduction of music does not know any dogmas or rules, but the goal is clear – to reproduce music in the most authentically way. To make products similar or equal to existing on the market does not fit with the Pathos philosophy: every machine planned and constructed by Pathos must contain technological innovation, not innovations as technical exercise, but something capable of offering real advantages for the realisation of the original aim “faithfully reproduction of music”.
