TORENToren is an open source modular audio platform. Toren allows you to create an audio product by clicking together a set of modules. No wires; just plug and play!
CustomisableEveryone has different preferences. Our modular design allows you to choose the functionality you want. Compose a product that meets your personal wishes.
UpgradableAn amplifier has a lifecycle of perhaps a decade, Bluetooth gets outdated within a year or maybe a new type of music transfer appears. Using Toren you can add or replace features whenever you want.
SustainableThanks to the modularity of our platform it's possible to keep up with technology that evolves rapidly while electronic waste is reduced.

At Audio Modules we're currently designing the first set of modules together with our partners. More information about these modules will follow soon!
The idea for modular audio started in may 2013, at that point Audio Modules was born. In the beginning we created several modules (PCB's) for hobbyists. In the autumn of 2014 we came up with the idea to make modular audio available for everyone.
Toren platform design
We needed to define a platform in order to make sure that all the future modules will work seamlessly together. This is where we created Toren. Toren is the open source modular audio platform, all of the modules will meet the toren platform specifications to ensure compatibility.
First modules design
Together with Digibytes we are now developing the first set of modules. Those are:
- Speaker module
- Bluetooth module
- Adapter module (connect Toren to your old audio system)
- Battery module
- Developer module (connect for example a Raspberry Pi and create your own network music player)
Once we have working prototypes of the modules listed above, you come in! We will start a crowdfunding campaign to collect (part of) the funds needed for producing the first batch of modules in the early fall of this year (2015).
Once the crowdfunding goal is successfully met, the designs are optimised for the production, the products are certified and production of the first batch starts! We expect deliver the first modules within 6 months after meeting the crowdfunding goal.less details
