Colquhoun Audio Labs Acquires Magnum Dynalab

Colquhoun Audio Laboratories Limited (CALL), a leading manufacturer of high-performance audio electronics and loudspeakers made in Canada, has announced the acquisition of another Canadian audio brand, Magnum Dynalab.

“We are excited to add Magnum Dynalab’s legendary FM tuners and vacuum tube electronics to our product mix, all supported under one roof by our design, engineering, and manufacturing capabilities as well as our award-winning customer service,” says CALL founder and CEO Ian Colquhoun.

Founded in 1984, Magnum Dynalab constructed a legacy of refined FM tuner products. The company’s first FM tuner, the FT 101, was launched in 1985 to glowing reviews. To enhance the performance of analog tuners, Magnum Dynalab also began producing an assortment of both directional and omnidirectional FM antennas. Since that time, Magnum Dynalab has introduced 15 analog FM tuners, including the Triode Series that incorporates vacuum tube technology into the audio output stage. Today, the newest line of Magnum Dynalab tuners, called the Dynamyte Series, feature an advanced HD Music Streamer, placing a world of content at each user’s fingertips. Jim Richards acquired the company in 2014 and served as president and COO until the recent acquisition by Colquhoun Audio Labs.

Magnum Dynalab staff will be onsite in CALL’s Dwight factory to assist with the transition.
