Carcès, France — Waterfall Audio, known for its unique glass loudspeakers, has chosen AVR Distributing of Marietta, Georgia, to represent and distribute the Waterfall brand throughout North America.
Founded more than a decade ago, Waterfall Audio is currently distributed in more than 30 countries, and the company is now ready to enter the U.S. market with specialty retailers through AVR Distributing.
Joe Hanson, president of AVR and his team of AV professionals have an aggressive plan for Waterfall Audio and are currently seeking qualified retailers and custom integrators. To facilitate this effort, AVR has hired Dwight Renzema as North America sales manager, to secure a network of independent reps across the country and develop the brand throughout their respective territories.
“Waterfall Audio has successfully combined state of the art acoustics with the beauty of fine art to produce a totally unique product that will appeal potentially to a new class of buyer and upscale dealers,” said Joe Hanson, president of AVR Distributing. “We are confident that this brand will fill a niche that has not been pursued previously.”
Slated for U.S. shores are a number of models, including Waterfall’s flagship Niagara tower speaker which received rave reviews at the 2009 CES Show. The diamond glass speaker features a glass horn tweeter and hand stitched Italian Nappa leather accents. It retails for $53,999.95 a pair.
Two of Waterfall’s most prominent tower speakers will also be available. The three-way Victoria EVO is named for one of the world’s most famous natural wonders, the eponymous falls in Zambia/Zimbabwe in Africa; and the two-way Iguasçu EVO is named for the falls on the border between Brazil and Argentina. Retail pricing is suggested at: $5,999.95 and $4,499.00 per pair respectively.
Additionally making their debut are the Hurricane Evo satellite system ($749.95/each), Elora LCR speaker ($1,549.95/ea), and High Force cabinet subwoofers ($1,299.95 -2449.95/each).
Waterfall Audio glass loudspeakers feature virtually invisible seams and corners created by Waterfall’s exclusive glass-fabrication techniques. The speaker cabling is located under the base, at floor level, to preserve the visual impact. The speaker drivers and bases are machined from die-cast aluminum preserving the unmatched feel or quality and precision.
“Our goal has always been to provide a unique visual impact with no-compromise audio performance,” said company founder and managing director Cedric Aubriot. “Waterfall’s glass-loudspeaker designs make a lifestyle statement that is utterly unique, because they literally disappear into the room.”
