Powersoft Audio, which produces products such as power amplifiers, loudspeaker components and audio software for use primarily in installed and sound applications around the world. The company's Italian made products are available in over 50 countries, with widespread authorized distributors and service centers network. Powersoft also has a sister company in the United States, which contracts with several agents to further extend the company's brand presence. Powersoft was founded in 1995 by brothers Luca Lastrucci, Claudio Lastrucci and their mutual friends Antonio Peruch, initially in a garage and then in a small apartment in Florence, Italy. The name Powersoft was chosen because it embodied the power of the hardware for audio amplification and software for artificial intelligence applications. Combining their love for music, technology and experimentation, the three young electronic engineers soon developed the company’s first project: a 12 volt amplifier designed to power the sound system of a car. The company soon began designing products for a variety of applications — such as power amplifiers for the professional audio market, and on-board vehicle telematic platforms for the public, private and commercial mobility markets. Over the course of its history, Powersoft has been credited with many industry innovations and industry firsts. For example, already by 1996, the company had mastered designing and developing a new Class-D amplifier that was able to deliver consistently reliable high power levels — something that hadn’t been achieved before. Class-D amplification was once regarded by the amplifier industry as inferior; now, the technology is considered an industry standard. Meantime, within the audio division, the development of fixed frequency switching mode technology delivered many benefits to its professional products, including unprecedented low noise leakage, low crosstalk and a deterministic behavior suiting any and all power levels. This helped correct the overall industry perception that switched mode power supplies were less stable. 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 of the loudspeakers), while easily handling impedance loads. These technology innovations made Powersoft an environmentally-conscious choice among amplifier brands
