Sabima was founded in the early 1970's with a small production capacity for a very specific and limited market of audio-equipment. In those days the music industry was, except for a few big players, a meeting point for music lovers and fanatics who found it difficult to find in the market what their ears or minds really wanted in terms of natural music reproduction. The company was actually born directly from the production of another well-known brand: Rodec, which had started back in 1954.
Things really started to kick off in 1975, when Sabima bought Transtel. This company was at that time a distributor of a number of audio-brands such as Monitor Audio, Spendor and Radford. With the new activities, the new founded company Transtel-Sabima had the opportunity to become ditributor of the Denon-brand. The company obtained the reputation of high-quality and service-oriented enterprise.
