Sonus faber and McIntosh become foundation of new high-end audio distributor
High-end audio business McIntosh Group and McIntosh Laboratory’s British distributor of 15 years, Jordan Acoustics, have established a new high-end audio distributorship to focus specifically on further developing the McIntosh and Sonus faber brands in the UK.
Fine Sounds UK will be headquartered in Great Britain, where it will have warehousing and customer service facilities.
The formation of the new business has been timed to facilitate a raft of “exciting” new product launches from both McIntosh and Sonus faber in the second half of 2020. Fine Sounds UK plans to make both brands more accessible to UK consumers and will actively invest in the UK audio industry by developing an “unrivalled” portfolio of world-class audio brands, broadening both McIntosh’s and Sonus faber’s dealer base.
Charlie Randall, McIntosh Group CEO and McIntosh Laboratory President, said: “After 15 successful years of working with Jordan Acoustics in the UK market we felt this venture of creating Fine Sounds UK was the next logical step to strengthen our position in the market.”
“Combining together with McIntosh under one business will enable us to expand the reach of Sonus faber to more UK customers, including our new line of home theatre and custom installation products,” added Co-CEO of the McIntosh Group and Sonus faber President Jeff Poggi.
Randall, Poggi and Tim Jordan, owner of Jordan Acoustics, have been named directors of the new company. Andy Oattes, previously Sales Director at One AV and Head of Sales at Naim Audio, has been appointed as Fine Sounds UK’s Sales Director. Oattes also has over a decade of experience at high-end audio company Linn.
