UK: Ceiboe.com is an online store retailing discounted premium consumer and pro-audio electronics, writes David Davies. Open exclusively to University Alumni members and students, colleges and university staff, CEIBOE offers up to 25% discount on list prices. The product range encompasses multimedia speakers, digital signal processors, earphones and more.

Brands carried on the site include Ferguson Hill, AMS Neve and Altec Lansing. Denon and AKG are set to be added in the near-future.

Sayed Madani, managing director of Ceiboe, tells PSN-e: "Many universities and colleges strive to include the 'cream of the crop' in terms of equipment for their studios but struggle to afford them, which in turn can impact the pull of their courses and student intake. The idea behind Ceiboe is to offer them top-flight pro-audio at a price they can afford. A high-end console is way beyond the means of many in education, so what we're doing is concentrating on high-end, outboard equipment, headphones for monitoring, microphones and effects, so they can get release quality recordings without the prohibitive financial outlay.

"SAE (School of Audio Engineering) has already signed up to Ceiboe for its students, and we are talking to many other colleges. We aim to stock up to ten pro-audio brands - we already have big players such as Crane Song and Neve on board and will be building on that with the addition of API and AKG in the near future."
