Play Dark Side of the Moon on a set of Boston Acoustics' speakers and you'll see the light. The company designs and makes moderately priced and high-end loudspeaker systems for the home and automotive markets. It also makes home entertainment systems, amplifiers, and ancillary speaker equipment, including selectors and volume controls. Boston Acoustics mostly tunes out mass retailers, selling its products through a select group of specialty dealers. Its products are manufactured by third parties in the Asia/Pacific region, Europe, and North America. Former chairman Andrew Kotsatos and ex-CEO Frank Reed founded the company in 1979. D&M Holdings acquired Boston Acoustics in 2005.
