Adam Worsfold - Who on earth is he ?

This is a glimpse of who I am and what I have done with my life so far  .  I am a person with a high degree of respect for anyone's  privacy  . My priority is health and mindset.  I chose to separate my personal life and my business life quite aggressively. I enjoy my inner circle of friends.   I will not live to work, I dont do anything I dont want to do , I consider " Money is my slave not my master" of course I know money makes life easier, I figured that out before I was 18, but money does not control my life . It never will.

ONIX AUDIO is in me .. My life's journey is why we make the best stuff

Here are a few highlights of a personal & exceptional journey :-

 

  • I started work at 15 stocking shelves in a food store at weekends, I finished my electronics qualifications and apprenticeship at 20 . I moved to a service company as an engineer on the lowest pay scale. Within 2 years I had risen to the UK Troubleshooter & was the highest paid person in the company of over 4000 People, only the directors were paid more . The next challenge called me at only 22. I had risen to the top in just 2 years . Time to grow ... NEXT.

    I started ONIX AUDIO with Tony Brady and Craig Hill  , within a year I became the sole owner , and within 5 years I had built and owned  a £ 3 million a year company.  I had become a £ millionaire at just 27 years old, this was exceptional in the era I did it .

    I sold ONIX AUDIO for a considerable sum when the time was right , I was just 29 . Not long afterwards the sale contract was breached , consequently I entered a legal battle to recover my loss. I won this battle 12 years later,  this fight being my first real lesson in business, teaching me so much about money and how people will lie and cheat to get it. This was a life changing lesson for me , a lesson I feel obliged to pass on to anyone that might be interested . I welcome the questions.


    After the sale of ONIX AUDIO and while I was legally fighting to recover my losses from the breach of sale contract ,  I was caught for speeding when driving my Porsche - ( Yep my fault 100% ) - I was banned from driving for 6 months . I decided I needed to use this free time for progress ,  so I studied to become an "Microsoft Certified Professional" at an official training center in London. I saw the future of computer opportunities so I qualified and moved forward with a new project.

    I soon started a new company making computers and installing networks. I quickly gained contracts with Sega games and British Airways to name just two. My company grew to a size I didn't anticipate or expect . I sold that company 4 years later for a large amount of money at 35, I left the UK and resided outside the UK/EU so as to keep the sale proceeds . This is when I discovered Asia and my second home was born.

    After winning the legal fight from the sale of ONIX , I used my brand ONIX  once again in 2010 to resurrect the original standards with new designs, we design make our own products so it was huge challenge all these years later , but  I did it and here we are today 14 years on . We make our own amps and they are the best you can buy ... most just dont realize how good they are. We are small and I am still hands on, so exclusivity works for us . There is not a better product than one made with pride/passion and knowledge by those that make it and design it . You are a person not a number to me with sound at the core.

 
 Notable Designs 
 

  • I was a co designer of the ONIX AUDIO -  OA20, OA21 . OA601 ,OA801 Amps and all the original ONIX products

  • I have designed modules for aviation, and in particular audio systems for one type of UK military jet .

  •  

  • I have entirely designed the DNA50 the DNA Ultimate and the 2024 - OA21 Legacy . The best for sure .

  • I own several patents, and trade marks, and I have designed products for many other large companies.

  •  

  • I am known for my engineering integrity driven by personal standards , and music lives in me .

I am a really unusual engineer in that I run my business with the needed fight and integrity to make it work, I am a communicator, business person,and engineer above all else - I love to be busy and work by choice . I live for personal freedom & achievement and despise corruption and zero-thinking people in today's world. I love everything well designed and engineered, and I dislike anything that is badly made or badly designed. I know China lies about so much of what they make , and it annoys me that most can't see it .  Even so Life is good and  I am still enjoying it, I would not change a day so far -  how many can say that ?
