50,000 Broadcasters cant be wrong about Orban. From NDR to the BBC, Orban products are at work in radio and television stations around the world. Designing audio products for the challenges of broadcasting has kept Orban busy and successful, for over thirty years. In fact, Bob Orban founded the company because he wasnt happy with the sound of albums being heard on the 'new' stereo FM stations. So he developed the OPTIMOD solution that combines several processing structures into a single unit to maximize loudness and still meet government broadcast regulations. Since 2009, all Orban Optimod and Opticodec products are manufactured in Germany to the highest possible standards.
