UK: Broadly-based distribution outfit SCV London has secured UK distribution rights for California-based Millennia Media. "These guys are passionate about what they do and the reputation of their products is legendary," SCV's Julian Blyth tells David Davies.

Millennia's product line has expanded considerably since the company was established by John La Grou in 1991. Starting out with a single pre-amp model, the portfolio now includes Twin Topology tube/solid state designs, dynamics processors and equalisers, the HV3 pre-amp range and the TCL-2 Twin Compressor Limiter (pictured).

For SCV London, the addition of Millennia swells a distribution portfolio that already includes products from Digigram, Benchmark, Fostex and Genelec, among many others.

"We are delighted to have acquired the distribution of Millennia Media products," says SCV London's managing director, Julian Blyth. "SCV London is associated with premium quality professional recording brands, and we try always to seek out manufacturers who are innovative and dedicated to the quality of their products. Millennia Media truly fits this profile."

Blyth, who draws particular attention to the enduring popularity of Millennia's mic pre-amps, says that SCV London will be making efforts to enhance the brand's presence across the British market in the months ahead. "The main task is to get people trying them out, so we are offering free 7-day trials on all products," he reveals. "It's early days, but interest is very strong."
