Founder and MD, Absolute Sounds
After cultivating a career promoting rock bands and working for high-profile music labels in the 1970s, Ricardo’s passion for music and uncompromised sonic performance led him to form Absolute Sounds in 1978.
He recognised that music lovers in the UK had limited access to the finest audio equipment from beyond these shores and sought to broaden horizons by seeking out and importing the very best the world had to offer. Absolute Sounds rapidly became the UK’s foremost distributor of extraordinary, boundary-pushing, epoch-making audio equipment, helping to establish many now-famous brands from multiple continents, with Ricardo himself becoming one of high-end audio’s most influential figures.
Now mid-way through its fifth decade of delivering sonic excellence for its customers, Absolute Sounds exclusively imports outstanding creations from 28 of the world’s most revered audio marques – an unrivaled collection painstakingly assembled with Ricardo’s passion still firmly at its heart.
