Mario Canever has a Master of Science in Digital Electronic Engineering graduating from Padua University in Padua, Italy, in 1986. In the 1987 has a second level Master in Radar System Maintenance from the S.T.El.E. Military School in Rome.
He worked for Electrolux and Ericsson as electronic designer first, and for the last 5 years as system engineer and system integrator in analog and digital electronic. In the 1995 he moved to the Hong Kong branch of an European multinational corporation as chief system engineer for the upgrading of electronic systems to become EMI, CE and RoHS compliant. Mario Canever continues as an independent systems engineering consultant for two European multinational corporations.
However, Mario Canever has been an audio enthusiast ever since he was age 16, when his mother refused to buy a Vespa and he had fallen to a system built around a pair of Altec 19 speakers. Anyway he does not like the word audiophile because first of all it relates to philia – usually a pathology – second because the music comes before all the audio things.
Mario’s primary passion remains in audio voted to music and not audio as a technology. Since 1976 he is continuing to update-experiment in audio, moving from Altec, to ESS Transar, to TAD and finally to whole OEM systems, always investigating in the state of the art solutions.
He studied almost all the designs ideas from La Maison de L’Audiophile and MJ Audio, and set up a few audio platforms with the integration of own digital solutions. Tubes, solid states, analog and digital speaker management system.
In the 2014 presented the CorumAudio project, a sophisticated horn system developed with an artist. He designs the whole system, from the circuit topology to the transformer design, from the mechanical structure to the microprocessors firmware, from the horn contour to the folded bass horn. He is an expert of room acoustic and sound measurements.
Last but surely not least, thanks the very close La Fenice theatre in Venice, there is the passion for the music: the tens of listening sessions at La Fenice theatre pushed him to pursue a natural reproduction and let the CorumAudio System and ZeroUno electronics born.
