Buzz Audio was formed in 1985 by Tim Farrant, the company was initially set up to provide technical services to New Zealand audio professionals. Tim's background in electronics, live sound engineering and later studio engineering led to the development of the companys first product, the True Class A MA-2 microphone preamplifier (now MA-2.2). The MA2 was well received by a handful of well known US engineers back in 1993 and this prompted Tim to continue to develop new products with an emphasis on innovative electronic design. Today the company continues to grow and aims to become a household name within the international recording industry.
