Powersoft is an Italian company specializing in the design, production and marketing of a wide range of professional high-end patented technologies for the professional audio market such as power amplifiers, loudspeaker components and software for use primarily in installed and live sound applications.
Since 1995, Powersoft is a leader in the realm of audio, standing for passion, creativity, and innovation. The three founders Luca Lastrucci, Claudio Lastrucci, and Antonio Peruch started this business in a small garage in Florence, Italy – and since then the company has not stopped innovating. These innovations have enriched peoples’ entertainment experiences.
A pioneer in switched-mode technology, Powersoft mastered the design and development of a new Class-D amplifier that was able to deliver consistently reliable high power levels – something that had never been achieved before. The development of fixed frequency switching mode technology for professional amplifiers delivered many benefits to its professional products, including unprecedented low noise leakage, low crosstalk, and performance suitable for any and all power levels.
This helped correct the overall industry perception that switched mode power supplies were unreliable. Now, the technology is considered an industry standard. Using its own-patented technologies, Powersoft’s switching mode power supplies were also able to greatly reduce heat dissipation, deliver back EMF (active recycling of the reactive energy from the loudspeakers), while easily handling heavy impedance loads. As these examples demonstrate, Powersoft is constantly breaking new ground in terms of what is possible: it holds dozens of patents, has meaningful manufacturing partners around the world, and also holds the keys to what will be possible in the next generation of audio.
Powersoft is present in more than 80 countries, with a network of authorized distributors and 35 certified technical service centers around the globe. Fostering Made In Italy, production is undertaken in plants at Scandicci (Florence), Bologna, Cortona, and Gorizia. The subsidiary Powersoft Advanced Technologies Corp., located in Kearny, New Jersey, is in charge of marketing and technical assistance for the US market.
