THAT Corporation Turns Twenty

Milford, MA, USA - THAT Corporation celebrates its 20th anniversary this year as a leading provider of high-quality integrated circuits to the pro audio industry.

Since its foundation in 1989 by senior managers and engineers from dbx, Inc., THAT Corporation has grown from one location in Massachusetts to several, including California, Georgia, Washington and Tokyo. THAT’s product line has also expanded from its initial offering of Blackmer® VCAs, RMS detectors and Analog Engine® dynamics processors to include InGenius® balanced line inputs, OutSmarts® balanced line outputs, microphone preamplifiers, and more.

Nearly a decade ago, THAT Corporation acquired its own fab in Silicon Valley, which makes them the only IC production facility focused primarily on high-performance audio components.

“Part of our vision for THAT Corporation was to offer our own, custom-made ICs geared specifically for pro audio applications that dramatically improve the sound quality while being reasonably priced,” stated Les Tyler, President.  “Thanks to our IC designers and hard-working people at THAT, we have made that vision a reality.”

The company’s latest IC contribution to the pro audio world will be unveiled at the 127th AES show in NYC this October.
