Loudspeaker experts from Germany
Simple design, stylish, engineering-led.
As an adjunct to Europe’s premier loudspeaker design consultancy, Fink Audio Consulting*, FinkTeam is involved in the creation of many different speakers across a wide range of prices.
In designing a loudspeaker for themselves, they envisaged it as a demonstration of their capabilities and a very useful internal reference. There was no intention that it would go on sale – after all they are loudspeaker engineers, not loudspeaker manufacturers! However the WM-3 was so well received at the Munich High End show in 2016 that they were forced to rethink!
Fast-forward to 2019 and the WM-4 and Borg models are receiving fantastic reviews. FinkTeam’s combination of design skills together with total control of manufacturing in-house, allows them to deliver a world-class loudspeaker system that is at home playing audiophile demo tracks and playing classic rock, jazz and orchestral music.
*Fink Audio Consulting was established more than 30 years ago. The team designs loudspeakers for major HiFi, Muiltimedia, CarAudio and ProAudio companies all over the world.

Luxury record players, tonearms and audio cables from England
When aiming to reproduce the complexities of music, it’s all too easy to introduce even greater complication in the engineering of audio equipment, putting in place one element to solve the problems of another until the whole design escalates into something fiendishly intricate – and expensive!
That’s not the Vertere way. Coming at the whole problem with decades of audio and mechanical engineering experience, plus close collaboration with the recording and mastering industry, we step back, take a long hard look at the fundamentals, and look for simple, elegant solutions.That may sound like a simple ‘less is more’ philosophy, but we prefer to look at it this way: the best audio equipment shouldn’t add anything to the original recording. Rather it should affect it as little as possible; bringing the listener ever closer to what the artist, producer and mastering engineer wanted you to hear.
