The AHED company was established in the early 1970s when Phil Anderson amalgamated the various divisions of Arc Sound Company into one corporation called AHED Music Corporation Ltd. (Arc Home Entertainment Diversified). AHED sold musical instruments  pianos, organs and guitars, through Mr Music stores but were best known for their GBX, Taurus and Darius amplifiers. AHED ceased operations in 1986 due to the slow Canadian economy and changes in the music industry.
