[ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_Audio_E... ]Company Profile
One of the original audiophile & 'high-tech' companies in the US; based in So.Cal., they earned a reputation for rock-solid reliability in both professional music applications and home audiophile installations. Scientific Audio Electronics (SAE) was an audio electronics maker founded in 1968 by Morris Kessler, along with Ted and Beth Winchester.
Within a year after the start of the company, export was accomplished by a combination export firm operating as “SAE International.” Export sales amounted to more than 50% of SAE's total production. The export manager was Charles Gassett, who was also a principal in Soundcraftsmen.
Other early audio pioneers at SAE were Ed Miller, previously at Sherwood in Chicago and James Bongiorno, who went on to found GAS (Great American Sound) and Sumo. In 1985, SAE was sold to DAK Industries, but folded in 1992 when the parent company went into bankruptcy. SAE was based in Los Angeles, California and enjoyed a large following of audiophiles.
