Our activities are focused on the design, engineering and manufacturing of innovative electro-acoustic products. We have brought to the market our own brand of products, and also work on specific projects for other companies seeking electro-acoustic know-how and expertise.

FrenchFlair Audio is proud to introduce the AS-Series: a first range of products, completely designed and made in France, which synthecises our positioning on the market with an innovative vision for the integration of sound within architectural projects.

The Team

Guillaume Boda

Co-owner/founder

Bilingual French and English.

During 4 years at Nexo's R&D department, he acquired the coveted skills of electroacoustics, with an active involvement in the development of new products, as well as handling the design of some of the brand's models (RS15).

In late 2008, he joined Group Technologies, in Melbourne, a first order distributor and manufacturer of professional audio products in Australia and the Pacific Area (Nexo, Camco, RCF, Stagemaker, etc).
In charge of  product development for Quest Engineering, their own proprietary brand which is distributed throughout the world, his vision was opened up by associating product design, industrial partnerships, and product positiong strategy.
He also took part in bringing custom technical solutions to large scale projects in Australia (Perth stadium, Melbourne Convention Centre), conducted by local professionals.

These were two major complementary experiences, during which the theoretical and experimental approaches to acoustics,   blended with the exciting challenge of designing a product for a demanding international audio market.
