Audio One, based in Dania Beach and Miami, is a company that designs and builds sophisticated home and office automation networks, audio-visual (A/V) systems that can include home IMAX theaters and state-of-the art recording studios.
Their clients are wealthy — and include rock stars — and their work costs from a minimum of $50,000 to several million.
Audio One was founded by David Frangioni, who grew up in Boston with a passion for rock music and technology, moving from drumming gigs when he was 12 to developing and applying new sound technology as a recording engineer, audio technologist and consultant who designed and installed professional recording studios.
“At 16, I caught the technology bug and realized what new technology could do for drums and other music,” said Frangioni, who is CEO of the company. “I was a ferocious learner and was self-taught in technology.” He studied at the New England Conservatory of Music and Northeastern University in Boston.
Frangioni was the rock-star sound engineer behind many rock stars. He worked for about 15 years as chief in-house engineer for the iconic rock group Aerosmith and collaborated with other music luminaries including Shakira, Sting, Elton John, Styx, Ringo Starr and Ozzy Osbourne.
