Armour Home Becomes UK Distributor for Astell&Kern

Armour Home Electronics adds Astell&Kern to its UK distribution list.

Astell&Kern is arguably one of the global leaders in portable and home high-resolution audio products, and today it joins Armour Home Electronics' expanding third-party distribution portfolio of complementary, leading audio brands.

As both a distributor and manufacturer Armour Home Electronics has a long-standing record of high-profile audio distribution alongside a rich heritage in audio innovation. Today, the company owns five audio brands including Q Acoustics, QED, Systemline, Audica and Goldring, as well as distributing Grado headphones and iFi audio products in the UK.

Astell&Kern's best-in-class high resolution portable audio players and headphones will make the brand a great fit to Armour Home's portfolio. With products such as the A&ultima SP2000 and KANN CUBE portable players, the manufacturer is opening up new markets, and Armour Home Electronics will undoubtedly look to capitalise on this through its extensive network of contacts across specialist and mainstream retail channels.

Dave Jang, Leader of Device Business Team at Astell&Kern, told StereoNET:

We reviewed a number of strong businesses before selecting our new distribution partner for the UK. Armour Home offer exceptional in house marketing combined with a strong proven dealer account management and support team. We feel confident that Armour will support the future growth aspirations of our UK business.

Chris Emerson, Sales Director at Armour Home, added:

The continued emergence of high-profile, high-resolution audio streaming and digital download services show there is an appetite from consumers to hear studio-quality audio, whether listening at home or on-the-move. This is the perfect time to be partnering with one of the leaders in high-resolution audio systems and playback, Astell&Kern. The company's innovative, high-performance product range has a synergy with our own brands and perfectly matches the requirements of our UK retail partners.

StereoNET would like to take this opportunity to congratulate both parties on this new alliance and look forward to seeing their continued success.
