The company started under the name of Osaka Denki Onkyo K.K in 1946. The current Onkyo Corporation umbrella includes the Integra and Integra Research divisions as well as the main Onkyo brand. At present, it is headed by Naoto Othsuki. During the early phases of its history, Onkyo grew as an innovator and fashioned itself into a force in audio, making the name Onkyo synonymous with sonic excellence and high-quality loudspeakers and components. Through the 70’s, Onkyo receivers were critically acclaimed. The products of the 80’s, including cassette tape decks, M-series amplification, turntables, AM/FM tuners like the T-909 and T-9990 along with receivers garnered acclaim from critics and consumers. In 1993, Onkyo became one of the first major corporate entities to radically transform its corporate management by following a “cash flow first” and “simple and speedy” philosophy. Concentrating on management reform allowed increased profitability for the entire Onkyo group.
