Allan Devantier graduated from Ryerson University in Toronto in 1987 and in 1989 Allan joined Plateau-Camber as a Loudspeaker Design Engineer. In 1990 the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation chose the Camber 3.5ti as their standard studio monitor after an extensive series of double-blind listening tests conducted at the Canadian National Research Council under the direction of Dr. Floyd Toole. In 1992 Allan joined Harman International and quickly became the Director of Systems Engineering for JBL Consumer. Later he became the Director of Engineering for Infinity (another Harman division). During his time at Infinity Allan led the development of the world’s first room-adaptive loudspeakers intended for domestic use, including the Infinity Prelude MTS. In 2002 Allan moved to Harman’s corporate research department where he was responsible for refining loudspeaker and audio system measurements and fostering best development practices for all Harman divisions. In 2013 Allan assisted Harman’s JBL Professional division as the Audio Systems Engineer for the critically acclaimed M2 Studio Monitor. Allan joined Samsung Research America in 2013 and since then has been building an elite team of audio engineers and researchers located in North Los Angles. Recently the CEA introduced a loudspeaker measurement standard (CEA-2034) which is a direct result of research he presented at the 2002 AES convention in Los Angeles. He holds nine US patents (plus numerous international equivalents) and has been published and quoted several times in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society. Allan resides in Santa Clarita California with his wife and 3 children.
