UK: The HD Pro Sales website provides access to product information and direct purchasing for end-users, reports PSN-e. Part of Surrey-based audio, visual and lighting group Marquee Installations Ltd, the new HD Pro Sales website went live during October.
Major name brands already available from the HD Pro Sales website (link below) include Abstract AVR, AKG, Allen & Heath, Ateis, Bose, Cloud, Crest, Crestron, DBX, Denon, Digidesign, Drawmer, K&M, Klark Teknik, Marantz, Martin Audio, Martin Professional, Midas, Optocore, Pro Tools, Pulsar, QSC, Sennheiser, Sharp, Shure, Tannoy, Tascam, Turbosound and Yamaha. Further brands and products "will be added in due course" and to satisfy customer requirements.
Orders from the website - which is said to provide for the needs of any venue or establishment, including theatres, educational facilities and entertainment venues - are normally despatched on the same day if placed before 2pm. Payment can be made by account, which can be created online, or via credit card or PayPal. Full terms and conditions are available on the site.
Invited to look back on the year now ending and ahead to 2010, Marquee Installations MD Mark Brown tells PSN-e that "despite the recession, our installation business is currently very busy and still showing year-on-year growth. HD Pro Audio has also shown better than expected sales and a profit in its first year of operation, which is good for any new business, but the general fluctuations in the market, even from month to month, do remind us that being more broadly-based is more stable in times of recession and it places us better to grow when markets are strong.
"HD Pro Sales builds on the strength of our knowledgeable staff and giving good service and support, and enters us into the online channel which I believe will continue to grow within pro-audio as it has in so many product and service markets."
