About Us

Small Audio Manufacture has started it's production in audiophilia all the way back from the early 80's. Formerly known as Pro L, it's works such as amplifiers, preamplifiers, loudspeakers and turntables, got recognition from various top magazines such as Stereoplay, HiFi Choice (among others) and quickly became one of the most well known manufacturers in Eastern and some part of the Western Europe. Our products found home in various countries such as Slovenia, Serbia, Germany, Austria and off course our homeland Croatia. At the end of the millennium company changed it's name to S.A.M., which stands for Small Audio Manufacture. As the name says it, S.A.M. is a small company that in general doesn't deal with large quantities and it's mostly oriented toward private clients and audiophiles such as themselves. Since the emergence of Internet and recent vinyl resurrection, S.A.M.'s production is currently at the all time high (so often, our clients have to wait for months to get their turntable), as our market expanded to United States, Canada, Russia, Nordic countries, Japan and even Malaysia. With that being said, Small Audio Manufacture does not have any salesman or middlemen, our clients are dealing and ordering their products straight from the factory and it's makers. Outside of couple of minor details, S.A.M. uses materials only from local factories and is entirely a Croatian, home made product.
