Scan Audio

Scan Pro Audio is the audio division of Scan computers. Over the last 25 years, Scan have built a healthy reputation for building High end audio systems for Professional musicians and producers. Our systems grace some of the finest recording studios in the world, and our client list includes some very famous composers, producers, musicians and DJ's.

Our Aim

Here at Scan we adopt the 3XS mindset in every department. We want to build systems and sell hardware, that are optimised completely for your specific task. We aim to deliver on performance and reliability while we remain flexible enough to accomodate your personal choice. We know that whether or not this is your passion, your hobby or indeed how you make your living, you need a system that is tailored, configured and built to your specific demands, allowing you to achieve your end goals.

Further to this, we dont hold stock of 'everything' as some retailers do. Instead, we hold products that we know are the best performing units for a particular task. We are one of only 3 places in the world which benchtest (and publish the results!) soundcards and interfaces.

We test everything - Our Pro Audio Staff are familiar with everything we sell and why we sell it. With literally decades of experience as Engineers, Producers and Live musicians, our Pro audio staff have 'been there' and are absolutely familiar with your requirements.
