Discover Octavio’s story

Octavio was born in two apartments in Lille.

The founding team had quality vintage audio systems that they appreciated more than anything, but were not compatible with the way they enjoyed music from streaming services.

The idea of breaking away from their system was inconceivable to them. What if the solution was simply to update them, rather than replace them?

Months of prototyping and testing went into coming up with the solution that would solve their problem.

Following a successful crowdfunding campaign thanks to those who would become our first users, Octavio was born.

This is the origin of Octavio, a team of music lovers with a common desire: to improve and facilitate your listening to music at home by reviving audio systems based on the best possible technologies.
