Auris Audio

Based in Belgrade, Serbia, Auris Audio's motto is "Back to Nature"—a nod to their extensive use of natural materials such as wood and leather. They offer quite a wide range of products: DACs, preamps, power amps, headphone amps, and speakers. Demonstrated at CES 2017 was Auris Audio's entry-level system (total price about €11,000), featuring the diminutive floorstanding Poison 3 loudspeaker (€4,000/pair). The sound was wide-ranging, with surprisingly powerful bass for its size.
