H3 Digital Timeline
H3 Digital is started as a family business in Karon, Phuket. Our original remit is Digital Homes which includes multi room sound systems, conventional audio (stereo) systems, home cinema and lighting control, also initially offering Digital Design for websites and brochures. We become the Thailand and SE Asia (Malaysia, Myanmar, Cambodia and Vietnam) Distributor for Nuvo Technologies multi room music systems and speakers. In February Janet Jackson's breast is briefly exposed by Justin Timberlake during the Super Bowl halftime show
Our Laguna office opens in the Plaza Del Mar development and we become the first Asian Distributor for the Sonos wireless sound system, in the early days Sonos had a handheld controller with a wheel button and only sold the amplified ZP100 (then ZP120) Sonos Connect:Amp and the unamplified ZP80 (then ZP90) Sonos:Connect, ZP stands for Zoneplayer. On June 29th Steve Jobs and Apple releases the much anticipated iPhone, they sell nearly 2 million units in the first 6 months.
An office move sees us transition from our Karon and Plaza Del Mar locations into a single custom built showroom in the Cherngtalay area. Key members of the H3 Digital team become KNX certified, passing examination in Singapore. Nuvo launch their Essentia audio system which is the worlds first Energy Star whole house audio system, consuming less than 1 Watt in standby mode. Music fans worldwide are saddened as Michael Jackson, the King of Pop dies on the 25th June.
Managing Director Ben Hobbs passes the CEDIA EST II and THX training courses in Australia.

Facebook goes Public.
Big changes see a new logo which is spray painted onto our cars by Bangkok Graffiti Artist MisterBows, 2016 also marks the start of building our new office which is on 0.75 Rai near the Alan Cooke cricket ground. It's container architecture, we love the idea of recycling/upcycling, the land was previously a rubbish dump and a Burmese work camp before we rejuvenated it. Musical Artists Prince & David Bowie die, the UK chooses to exit the EU (Brexit) and Donald Trump wins the US Presidency.
