founded in 1979 in North Hollywood, California. Its mission
is to manufacture the very best audio magnetic components in
the world. However, its history goes back to 1953 when its
founder, Tom Reichenbach, was a youngster and was already
making transformers with his father, Ed.
Edward Reichenbach's experience in the audio transformer
business goes back to Altec Lansing during World War II.
Starting there, he designed many transformers which ended up
in their equipment. There are some interesting pictures of Ed at Altec Lansing on the Cork Board. After Ed left
Altec Lansing he manufactured audio and power transformers
and inductors on his own. Eventually, Ed formed Reichenbach
Engineering and developed a line of transformers which
became ubiquitous standards in the pro audio industry. Tom
worked with Ed until 1979, when he formed CineMag. CineMag
was originally located at Reichenbach Engineering, but after
a few years outgrew the facility.
In order to obtain the very best results in an audio design,
it is imperative that each and every detail of manufacturing
be closely watched. The smallest deviation from ideal
manufacturing processes will result in product which does
not meet our criteria. For this reason, we do all
manufacturing in our own facility at Canoga Park,
Every device we manufacture must pass a thorough
computerized test. This assures our customers that their
product will deliver the best performance possible.
Dedication to excellence in manufacturing and service, as
well as ongoing research and development, has distinguished
CineMag as the leader in audio magnetics. CineMag offers a
broad range of audio transformers and inductors to satisfy
customer product requirements. By doing all manufacturing
in-house we are able to maintain the highest standard of
