Hypex was founded in 1996 by Jan-Peter van Amerongen (1964 - 2021). Hypex started as a supplier of plate amplifiers for live sound loudspeakers. The products attracted the attention of HiFi loudspeaker manufacturers, resulting first in a range of active subwoofer amplifiers, followed shortly afterwards by multi-channel units with active crossover filters for the studio market.
In 2003, a full migration to Class D was started. The newly invented 'Universal Class D' technology was selected for this, later followed by the leading NCORE® technology. Hypex decided not only to use UcD™ and NCORE® in end-user products, but also to market them as general amplifier modules. The quality of the UcD™ and NCORE® modules quickly became recognized as the new standard quality for the industry in both measured and subjective performance.
In 2005, Hypex decided to become a technology resource instead of a technology user. Hypex now serves many major audiophiles, HiFi and Pro Audio brands, incorporating world class NCORE® technology into their final product.
In 2013 Hypex built its own production facility in Malaysia called Seetek EMS SDN BHD. This factory only produces Hypex products. One of Hypex's core values is to deliver high-quality products at all times. That is why Hypex requires strict control during the production, assembly and quality process. With Seetek we can maintain our core values.
Same support, different name: following Hypex's strategy of being an amplifier manufacturer for both OEM and DIY markets from 2016, we are making a small transition in the business model. Hypex Electronics continues production of OEM Class D modules. www.DIYclassD.com will take care of the DIY market and provide smooth customer support and a more direct and personal approach to the DIY audio market. It will make a clear distinction between OEM and DIY. The company in the background that makes everything possible will still be Hypex Electronics, but the sales and support will be made through DIYclassD.com.
Hypex Electronics kicked off the year 2021 by celebrating its 25th anniversary. In the second half of the year, however, founder Jan-Peter van Amerongen lost an unwinnable battle and died in November 2021. We will remember Jan-Peter as an enthusiastic, kind and warm person and we will miss him in our personal lives and within our company.
Jan-Peter chose the former R&D Manager Jan Willem Winters as the new CEO of Hypex Electronics B.V.
