The NORMA brand is property of OPAL ELECTRONICS, a company that designs, engineers, and builds Electronic Devices in the measuring instruments field. From the union of the technical know-how acquired in time and the passion for Quality Listening, NORMA products were born, a synthesis between Technology and Love for Music.
Norma is based in Cremona, a place where music has always played an important role. Cremona is the home of Monteverdi, Ponchielli, Stradivari, Amati and many other artists. For more than 20 years Norma has been involved in the study and implementation of sophisticated audio amplifiers. Technical skill and musical sensitivity must be merged together, in the same way in which the best musical instruments are made. In Norma we are convinced that the influence of audio electronics on the outcome of audio reproduction is much greater than commonly assumed. Listening to a NORMA product can express this concept, better than words, closer than ever to live listening. The sound of Norma products is unique, represents a synthesis of parameters which often conflict with each other. Dynamics, speed, and absolute transparency are combined with extraordinary musicality and a total lack of listening fatigue. The conflicts between solid state and valves are finally overcome, leaving space only for pure listening pleasure.
NORMA’s target is to utilize Technique to create products that reflect what NORMA means with “musical reproduction”. This concept is the synthesis of elements as: neutrality, lack of artificiality, respect for the dynamics and timbre of the original execution. In other words, a Minimalist approach; the intention is therefore to manipulate the audio signal as less as possible, confiding that the original music already contains all the Beauty that will bring Emotion in the listening experience. The musical message will not be Reinterpreted, adding something More pleasant, but will instead receive the maximum respect. All the technical choices, from the most advanced to the ones that are apparently against the trend, derive from this precise Vision, and are not random.
