UK-based Sound Network has been appointed as the latest addition to Sony’s Professional Audio distributor network for Europe.
The appointment comes as part of Sony’s mission to grow its presence in the UK audio industry by taking its professional audio solutions and systems to the wider market.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the pro-audio distribution and an extensive dealer network, Sony says it has chosen Sound Network because of its strong ties with the recording, live, broadcast and theatre industries in the UK.
Sound Network says it had been looking for a high quality digital wireless system for some time to match with their existing product portfolio and Sony professional audio models such as the UWP-D Series and DWX Series fits their needs. With the market embracing new digital technology for its wireless systems, Sound Network can now offer a wide range of product solutions
This would include combining DPA capsules – a product Sound Network is well known for distirbuting – with Sony’s transmitter handles.
“DPA d:facto has an adapter (SL1) for Sony wireless transmitter handles and the DPA d:screet miniatures have three for the various Sony belt pack transmitters (DAD3058, DAD6008 and DAD6019),” says Sound Network marketing manager Caleb Hill (pictured, left). “This could prove very useful to our current DPA users, and we will definitely be informing them as to this compatibility.”
Commenting on the appointment, Sony Professional audio product specialist for Europe, Markus Warlich adds, “We’re pleased to be working with a partner so well integrated in the UK market that come with the right contacts and expertise to help us cement and broaden our UK presence. Sound Network is an ideal addition to our value added distributers and we look forward to working with them to drive success across our product offering.”
