Founded by its two directors, Greg Williams and Daniel Desiere, Dex began in 1978 to service the music industry. The two began building equipment and maintaining audio equipment for recording studios and some of Australia’s most successful touring bands. Since then, through expansion into several activities, Dex has grown into one of the most diversified audio and media manufacturers in Australia.
In Kensington (close to Flemington Race Course) we have our main offices and manufacturing plant.

Daniel Desiere, Company Director
Co founder of Dex Audio
Daniel began work in the Audio Industry in 1970 at Klarion Enterprises in Melbourne. Working in tape production, he gained a reputation for being able to repair or modify the production equipment. Daniel was promoted to maintenance department manager. Working with major brands like Otari, Soundcraft and MCI, Daniel was responsible for major modifications to MCI multi track recorders that were then taken up by the US manufacturer and incorporated into future products. In 1978 he left to pursue plans with his colleague and Dex Audio was born. At the same time Daniel also pursued a career as a recording engineer and had a busy time culminating in recordings for performers like Men At Work and Vince Jones. As well as playing a very active management role at Dex, Daniel leads the company with major projects such as the sound system for Australia’s first IMAX theatre and installation of Dex’s studios and production equipment. Company technical performance is ensured, as all engineer training as well as equipment standards are his responsibility. His passion extends as well to the very old with a significant collection of vintage recording equipment and radios.
