The newly created high-end audio distributor focusing on McIntosh and Sonus faber in the UK has opened 16 new hi-fi dealers across the UK and Ireland following its inception on 1 August this year.

Despite the various challenges caused by the global pandemic, Fine Sound UK has opened 11 new Sonus faber dealers and five new McIntosh dealers, adding to an already comprehensive UK and Ireland network. 

This news comes as part of the company’s UK and Ireland investment programme. It is also perfectly timed to align with a host of recently announced products from the two companies. 

New from McIntosh, the C8 Vacuum Tube Preamplifier and the MC830 Solid State Amplifier, as well as the MA12000 Hybrid Integrated Amplifer and MX100 A/V Processor/MI347 7-Channel Amplifier, while Sonus faber has recently launched the new three-strong Lumina range. More products are due to be announced later this month.

Adding to the 16 new hi-fi dealers, Fine Sounds UK has also grown its custom install dealer network, adding 12 CI companies who will focus on the expanding range of install and home cinema products from both company’s portfolios. 

Heading up the rapid expansion, Andy Oattes, Fine Sounds UK and Ireland sales director, said: “The response from the market to what we are doing has been amazing. Our plans for the future, product portfolio and all-round excellence in quality, really resonates with dealers and end users.

“We are incredibly focused on working with the best dealers across independent hi-fi and custom install in the UK and Ireland, and our timing appears to be impeccable; the lockdown seems to have given people the time to enjoy music and engage with all aspects of AV at home.”
