About us

Developing audio components that set new standards requires two main qualities: a deep understanding of music and sound plus profound technical expertise. Only the harmonious combination of these traits can produce audio components that live up to the highest demands.

mfe pays special attention to individual customer requirements and high-quality service: If necessary, mfe devices can be optimally adapted to other components, ensuring perfect integration into an existing system. All mfe products are carefully hand crafted, represent mechanically and electrically state-of-the-art and guarantee unrestricted listening pleasure – made in Germany.

 

Michael Franken …

… discovered his love for music at the age of 5. His musical career began with the violin. But he was also deeply fascinated by technology and particularly enthralled by the inner life of vacuum tube radios. It was the youthful enthusiasm for rock music that eventually drew music and technology together. He started to play the guitar and soon built his first guitar amplifier and a hi-fi system – of course, in tube technology.

After studying electrical engineering, he worked for several years as a development engineer, which included work in the field of electroacoustics. In 1992, in order to realize his high demands with regard to exclusive but affordable audio components, he founded ‘mfe – Michael Franken Electronic’.

Characterized by his uncompromising quality requirements, his long-standing professional competence and his experience as a musician, he has since then developed pioneering audio components that stand out through their lively sound full of dynamism and harmony.

The mfe product portfolio now encompasses an assortment that ranges from tube amplifiers and digital converters to power supplies and high-efficiency loudspeakers.

 

Our products will undergo major technical and visual overhaul starting in 2019 and are now available with the addition ‘SIGNATURE EDITION’!

 

‘SIGNATURE EDITION’ means the following:

 

‘Appearance/design:’

 

All products will undergo a significant facelift; a modern, fresh and uniform design has been implemented. All devices are available in anodized silver, black and champagne gold (extra charge).

 

‘Technology/Sound:’

 

Long-planned upgrades and improvements will be integrated into the series from 2019 onwards.

All components are elaborately selected and measured and integrated into our equipment by qualified employees and graduate engineer Michael Franken.

 

Through these measures, we managed to increase the outstanding sound and the operational safety significantly once again!!
