Carcès, France—June 5, 2009—Waterfall Audio (www.waterfallaudio.com) known throughout the world for their dramatic glass loudspeakers, has chosen AVR Distributing of Marietta, GA to represent and distribute the Waterfall brand throughout North America.
Founded over a decade ago, Waterfall Audio is currently distributed in more than 30 countries and the company is now ready to blaze a path in the U.S. market with specialty retailers through AVR Distributing.
Joe Hanson, President of AVR and his team of experienced A/V professionals have an aggressive plan for Waterfall Audio and are currently seeking qualified retailers and custom integrators. To facilitate this effort, AVR has hired Dwight Renzema as North America Sales Manager who will secure a network of independent reps across the country to develop the brand throughout their respective territories.
“Waterfall Audio has successfully combined state of the art acoustics with the beauty of fine art to produce a totally unique product that will appeal potentially to a new class of buyer and upscale dealers. We are confident that this brand will fill a niche that has not been pursued previously.” said Joe Hanson, President of AVR, Distributing.
Slated for U.S. shores are a number of models including Waterfall’s flagship Niagara tower speaker which received rave reviews at the 2009 CES Show. The impressive diamond glass speaker—the ultimate fusion of audio and interior design, features a dramatic glass horn tweeter and hand stitched Italian Nappa leather accents. Created for discriminating audiophiles, the Niagara retails for $53,999.95 a pair.
Two of Waterfall’s most prominent tower speakers, positioned to attract discriminating dealers and custom-installers with their unique quality and performance profile, will also be available. The stunning, three-way Victoria EVO, is named for one of the world’s most famous natural wonders, the eponymous falls in Zambia/Zimbabwe in Africa; and the two-way Iguasçu EVO is named for the falls on the border between Brazil and Argentina. Retail pricing is suggested at: $5,999.95 and $4,499.00 per pair respectively.
Additionally making their debut are the Hurricane Evo satellite system ($749.95/each), Elora L/C/R speaker ($1,549.95/ea), and High Force cabinet subwoofers ($1,299.95 -2449.95/each).
Waterfall Audio glass loudspeakers feature virtually invisible seams and corners created by Waterfall’s exclusive glass-fabrication techniques. The speaker cabling is located under the base, at floor level, to preserve the dramatic, unprecedented visual impact. The speaker drivers and bases are machined from die-cast aluminum preserving the unmatched feel or quality and precision.
“Our goal has always been to provide a unique visual impact with no-compromise audio performance,” says company founder and managing director Cedric Aubriot. “Waterfall’s glass-loudspeaker designs make a lifestyle statement that is utterly unique, because they literally disappear into the room.”
