HEAD-FI MARKET SHAKE-UP AS MRSPEAKERS LANDS NEW AUSSIE HOME
The move signals the second head-fi brand distributed by Melbourne-based Busisoft AV to change distributors in as many weeks.
MrSpeakers is a San Diego borne brand that was formed by an electrical engineer, Dan Clark, with a simple goal in mind: make great headphone products and have fun doing it.
Andy Regan, President of MrSpeakers, told StereoNET:
MrSpeakers is proud to appoint Advance Audio Australia as our exclusive distributor for Australia. MrSpeakers has not only worked hard to design and build the most musical products in the industry but to also treat our customers like extended family. Nigel Ng and company are the best people to represent not only our products but our culture to personal audio fans down under. We are very excited.
MrSpeakers' humble beginnings started with modifying Fostex headphones before establishing themselves with a range of headphone offerings touted by many enthusiasts as amongst the world's best.
The addition of MrSpeakers to its portfolio marks a new chapter for Advance Audio who is celebrating 25-years this year, and add to its reputable range including KEF, Wilson Audio, Nordost, Arcam, and more.
Nigel Ng, General Manager at Advance Audio, added:
Being able to approach a new demographic with our portfolio is very exciting. This addition to our portfolio marks the beginning of a long term, nation- and industry-wide collaboration that will bring stability and integrity to the head-fi industry, to the benefit of all head-fi customers.
The full range of MrSpeakers will be available from early August, and prices start at $1,395 RRP for its AEON Closed headphones, up to $5,195 RRP for the flagship VOCE Electrostatic headphones.
