Audio Brands Australia has been named as Meyer Sound’s distributor in Australia, with the appointment also extending to New Zealand through a partnership with Pacific AV.
Effective immediately, Audio Brands Australia will be responsible for sales, technical support and service of Meyer Sound products across all markets, including touring and AV rental, performing arts venues, houses of worship, hospitality, cinema and studio.
“In Audio Brands Australia we have found an ideal partnership for strengthening and extending the Meyer Sound presence down under,” said Antonio Zacarias, Meyer Sound vice president of global customer engagement.
“Audio Brands Australia has a solid, strategic approach in the product lines they represent, as well as a proven track record of responsive service and support. The company principals have a close collaborative relationship with the consulting community, which aligns with Meyer Sound’s growing emphasis on commercial installation. At the same time their personal experience in live performance and touring will connect with that key market.”
For Don McConnell, founder and director of Audio Brands Australia, the appointment represents a “significant step forward for the company”.
“With this appointment, Meyer Sound has recognised our company’s passion for audio and our demonstrated success with other product lines,” said McConnell. “We certainly share Meyer Sound’s commitment to product quality and customer support, and we have everything in place to take Meyer Sound to a wider audience in Australia and New Zealand. We sell solutions, not boxes. Customers know they can rely on us from initial design proposals through ongoing technical support after the sale,” says McConnell.
Meyer Sound executive vice president Helen Meyer added: “We are excited to have Audio Brands join as our distributor for the important Australia and New Zealand markets.”
A number of Meyer Sound products and technologies have been installed in Australia and New Zealand installed in recent years. Examples include the Telstra Customer Insight Centre in Sydney, Hamer Hall at Arts Centre Melbourne, Bee Gees Way in Redcliffe, Soundfirm cinema post in Melbourne, and the ASB Theatre in Auckland.
“Meyer Sound is highly regarded as the prestige, innovative brand,” observed McConnell. “We’re enthusiastic about building on this reputation among existing users while at the same time introducing a new generation of Meyer Sound products to a wider audience of audio professionals.”
