Arion Audio

Custom Loudspeakers

Arion Audio is the consumer products division of the MK Audio group. MK Audio LLC was officially established in 2004 and originally located in Mountainside, New Jersey. In 2013 MK Audio relocated to
Charlotte, North Carolina. Arion Audio products are designed, developed and manufactured in Charlotte, North Carolina.


The founder of MK Audio LLC, Mike Kalellis, has over 30 years of experience in designing, developing and manufacturing components and systems spanning many disciplines including custom solutions for mission critical sites including, national treasures, data centers, utilities and others where systems failure is not an option and efficient designs are a must. Mr. Kalellis was also involved in motorsports for two decades as both driver and car designer. Mike approaches the creation of all Arion Audio products with the same passion and discipline as had when he designed the life safety air sampling system for the Statue of Liberty. Mike has been a music lover since his preteen years. At the age of 12 Mike built his first
audio system from a kit. His enthusiasm for great sound and his career experiences culminated in the formation of MK Audio and Arion Audio products. Mike feels privileged to be working on and doing the things he most enjoys: designing, developing and manufacturing audio products and making great music.


Our mission is to innovate, design and create high-performance, high value audio equipment for the music enthusiast. Arion Audio uses state-of-the-art materials and assembly techniques. Attention to every detail is impeccable. Each component is thoroughly inspected prior to the careful hand-assembly process. Arion Audio products are designed to be environmentally responsible and suppliers are carefully selected to be the same and be USA based. Equally important to us, and at the top of our list of priorities, is excellent customer service. When purchasing an Arion Audio product, we want our customers to feel confident that we stand behind our products.


Arion Audio products are designed to portray a vivid sonic presentation with exceptional clarity, focus and realism. With our equipment the presentation is always both natural and lifelike. The smallest details are well defined but never overemphasized. In our speaker drivers, the motor architecture and component materials used are designed and chosen to be both robust and efficient allowing our speakers to never sound compressed or stained. The results of our applied philosophy, science and engineering are speakers that create an exciting new musical experience.

Along with our standard product lines we offer custom products and custom solutions for your high-performance home audio system needs. We can design and build custom loudspeakers using our
proprietary AMT drivers and custom amplifiers. Please give us a call to chat about your next audio system upgrade.
