Tetra Speakers (http://www.tetraspeakers.com) is an Ottawa, Canada-based company with long roots in the music industry. Adrian Butts is the President and Founder.
Over the years a number of professional musicians, producers, and recording and mastering engineers have fallen in love with the Tetra sound. The reason they all give? Because it really sounds like music. When Benny Golson first heard the Tetra 506 speakers he was literally jumping up and down exclaiming, "I've played with Coltrane hundreds of times, and that is what he sounds like! THAT is what he sounds like!"
Toys for Boys-Ottawa Toys for Boys Like Tetra Speakers are Herbie Hancock’s Favourite Speakers!
Herbie Hancock fell in love with Tetra speakers several years ago and has a complete 7.1 Tetra setup in his home theater and a 5.1 setup in his recording studio. He recently upgraded his recording studio from the 506 mains to the new flagship 606 mains. He used the 506s in his studio for the making of his Possibilities CD.

Ron Carter also purchased the 506s and recently upgraded to the new ($33.3K) 606 speakers. When Ron—the most recorded bassist of all time, with over 2500 albums and CDs to his credit—first heard these speakers in his home, he remarked not only on the sound of the speakers, but how well they reproduced the hall he recorded in. He couldn't believe that they reproduced not only the instruments but everything that was going on in the room so perfectly. He was astonished.
Other musicians with Tetra speakers include Keith Richards, Wynton Marsalis, Robert Silverman, Buster Williams, Lenny White, DD Jackson, Dave Holland, and many others.
While most stories have two sides to them Tetra Speakers’ story actually has three. The first side of their story is about their high end speakers. The second side is all about Tetra speaker owners and the third side is about a top-tier group of music industry professionals who have rallied around to help them design and spread the word about Tetra’s High End Speakers.
Toys for Boys-Ottawa Toys for Boys Like Tetra Speakers offer a “Viscerally Fulfilling Experience!”
At Tetra Speakers, they acknowledge that music is one of the most powerful forces for change on the planet (the force of nature excluded - although you should hear Tetra Speakers’ 606) and that the speaker is the most important component in the reproduction of music. For over ten years, they have insisted that the form and function of every Tetra Speaker must unite in a visually exciting and viscerally fulfilling experience. Tetra Speakers’ view is that a speaker must have emotive power even when not playing music - just like the sight of a 1931 Martin guitar impacts one even before a note is played. To Tetra, their speakers are not simply high end speakers but true "listening instruments"
Tetra Speakers’ approach to design has not changed over the years with one notable exception. They now have the bonus of being able to call upon the expertise of some of the best musicians and recording engineers in the world. These talented individuals appear on their site’s "Who's Listening" pages and their participation is based solely on the thrill of Tetra listening and wanting to help spread the word. Tetra Speakers cannot thank them adequately for the inspiration and friendship they have freely provided.
Toys for Boys-Ottawa Toys for Boys Like Tetra Speakers offer “hair raising moments!”
At Tetra, their philosophy is that every Tetra Listening Instrument must deliver the 'rush' of a physiological response to the music being played. They call them HRMs (hair raising moments) and every recording has them. Tetra Speakers’ wish is that you will experience this euphoria for yourself and become part of the Tetra Speakers’ Story.
In closing, the three sides of the Tetra Speakers’ Story will always be a work in progress. As they grow they will add more listeners, more listening instruments and more music professionals. Add the Tetra site to your bookmarks so you can follow their progress on this magical musical journey. It's certain to entertain, just like their Listening Instruments!
