 2.10: Canon, Lone Wolf
Founded in 1933, the company more or less fell apart during World War II, to be reconstituted later by a most unusual man.

But he works for a company whose specialty is optics, and since light and sound both travel in waves, it was natural to try to apply the principles of optics to audio.
