Active Audio has announced the appointment of Allied ProTech as its exclusive distributor for the US. Founded in 2002 in Nantes, France, Active Audio has forged a reputation for loudspeakers that deliver good sound performance, intelligibility and neutrality. They are installed in many prestigious, yet acoustically challenging, spaces.
“We’re very excited about our new partnership with Active Audio,” Allied ProTech’s Founder and President, Rik Kirby, remarked. “They are a company that is constantly innovating and finding better ways to deliver superior audio performance. Their StepArray column loudspeakers deliver outstanding intelligibility in reverberant spaces, using fewer DSP channels, without the complex and expensive electronics that make most steered arrays so difficult to install and set up. They offer a full line of active and passive loudspeaker technologies that’s unique to the market, and we’re eagerly anticipating bringing their products to the US.”
“Now is the ideal time for us to enter the US market, and Allied ProTech is the right partner to help us succeed,” Active Audio’s CEO, Régis Cazin, added. “Rik Kirby brings more than 20 years’ expertise in professional audio, and the entire Allied ProTech team brings an insight and understanding of what makes Active Audio loudspeakers unique. We’re confident they will provide the expert sales management and distribution we seek, along with the outstanding service and support that our customers deserve.”
