Azione Unlimited (AU) has signed two new names to its list of vendor members. McIntosh Laboratory, Inc. (McIntosh), based in Binghamton, NY, is a manufacturer of high-end music systems for audiophiles.
McIntosh Group is also the parent company of Italian luxury audio manufacturer Sonus Faber, another new addition to Azione’s vendor member roster. Together with McIntosh Labs and the other brands in the McIntosh Group, Sonus Faber is part of one of the world’s largest audio brand conglomerates in the high-end market.
“From Sonus Faber’s distinguished audio offerings to the iconic McIntosh Blue? watt meters and McIntosh audio products, known for powering some of the most important moments in music and history, we are excited to welcome these two prestigious luxury brands as our newest members,” said Azione president Richard Glikes. “As the only buying group where our dealers and vendors are all equal members of the organization, we provide unique opportunities for manufacturers and custom integrators to work together for the benefit of the industry. As demand for two-channel luxury audio products and high-end home entertainment systems increase, our dealer members can take advantage of special programs, product discounts, training, and other exclusive benefits our vendors offer.”
“We are excited about our new partnership with the Azione Unlimited Group. As the CI channel continues to grow, it is important that we work closely with dealers in delivering products which meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s consumers,” said Dan Wakefield, McIntosh Group VP of Sales for North America.
