  • Audiovox: Klipsch, Jamo, Mirage, Energy, Athena (out of business)
  • Core Brands: ELAN, Niles, SpeakerCraft, Sunfire??
  • Harman International: JBL, Infinity, Harmon Kardon, AKG, Crown, Revel, Lexicon
  • International Audio Group: Audiolab, Castle Loudspeakers, Luxman, Mission, QUAD, Wharfedale
  • Jade: Emotiva, Sherbourn, Bob Carver
  • Lenbrook Group: NAD, PSB
  • MSE Audio: Induction Dynamics, Phase Technology
  • Shoreview Industries: Anthem, Paradigm, Martin Logan
  • Sound United: Boston Acoustics, Definitive Technology, Denon, Escient, Marantz, McIntosh, Polk Audio, Snell Acoustics

Not sure how much of it is still accurate though.
Wow, you even included MSE Audio in there! I can tell you that your listings for them are accurate, although if you wanted to add commercial brands there are a couple of them. Up until about six months ago I worked for MSE Audio, primarily in their commercial speaker brand called SoundTube.

Samsung from South Korea acquiring American companies; big American names...Infinity (speakers with the Dr. Floyd E. Toole's imprint), Revel, Lexicon, Mark Levinson, Harman Kardon, JBL, ... America second.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung

Warren Buffett must be shaking his head and wondering about Coca-Cola and Colgate-Palmolive, next on somebody's list to purchase, from somewhere outside America. Everything's for sale, @ a price.

And Samsung is under an umbrella of corporate corruption.

I like to be thorough.

If you have anything I can add to my list please let me know. I want to keep it as accurate as possible.

MSE Audio also owns SoundTube, SoundSphere, Rockustics and SolidDrive. The first two are commercial speaker brands, and the other two have commercial and residential applications.

My mistake I thought Harman bought D&M a while back.
