SnapAV is partnering with Yamaha to distribute more than 100 Yamaha 70-volt commercial audio products to SnapAV integrators nationwide. According to Scott Normand, senior director at SnapAV, providing ready access to Yamaha’s lineup of commercial-grade speakers, amplifiers, mixers, DSPs, network switches, and keypad control systems creates new opportunities for dealer growth.
“Even among integrators that consider themselves CEDIA-focused, industry research shows that 42 percent of revenues are derived from commercial installations,” explains Normand. “We want integrators to be able to take on any job, and our developing product catalog reflects our commitment to be the number-one place where pros buy audio. With Yamaha’s class-leading 70-volt speakers and amps, SnapAV integrators can meet and exceed the expectations of projects in bars, restaurants, retail stores and houses of worship, often with local product availability.”
In order to ensure integrators have immediate access to the products they need, most of SnapAV’s 23 Local Pro Stores carry Yamaha 70-volt products. The number of SnapAV Pro Stores in the U.S. will grow to 26 by the end of 2020, with even more locations scheduled to launch in 2021.
In total, SnapAV’s Yamaha stock includes more than 40 speakers including in-wall, in-ceiling, surface mount and slim line models; more than 30 amplifiers; 10 DSPs and mixer consoles; three Gigabit network switches and several control panel options.
The Yamaha ecosystem includes a simplified control system that requires no training and can be installed on mobile devices for take-it-anywhere accessibility. In the future, SnapAV plans to provide deeper Yamaha DSP integration with other brands including Control4.
