Fine Sounds UK offers ‘Ci-fi’ ranges from McIntosh & Sonus faber

The UK distributor for McIntosh and Sonus faber, Fine Sounds UK, has expanded its portfolio for audiophiles and movie enthusiasts to include a range of home installation products.

The new additions comprise of a comprehensive range of hi-fi quality installation products, including McIntosh electronics and Sonus faber loudspeakers, which will be available through a carefully selected, expanding retailer base.

With this news, Fine Sounds UK has also announced that it has joined CEDIA as a trade supplier member, bringing McIntosh and Sonus faber’s high-performance CI offerings to the organisation’s integrator members (and their customers), for the first time.

Expanding beyond traditional two-channel music systems, both companies (part of the McIntosh Group) have launched synergistic electronics and loudspeaker systems for a range of home installation projects. This convergence allows hi-fi quality to meet installation convenience for enjoyment throughout the home, rather than just where the hi-fi system is located.

The ‘CI-fi’ portfolio, as coined by Andy Oattes, Fine Sounds UK’s sales director, will include Sonus faber’s Italian-made range of high-quality in-wall and in-ceiling CI loudspeakers, the Palladio Collection, plus McIntosh Laboratory’s comprehensive range of install-friendly equipment, including the recently announced MX100 AV process and MI347 seven-channel power amplifier.

The two brands’ performance-tier ‘CI-fi’ music and mover offerings include the McIntosh MX170 AV processor, McIntosh’s extensive range of award-winning amplifiers, as well as Sonus faber’s Palladio Level 6 in-wall/in-ceiling speaker, which draw from the seven-strong Olympica Nova collection.

Oattes said: “McIntosh and Sonus faber are both incredible companies with a huge range of solutions for integrators to choose for a wide array of projects across music and movies. The common denominator is world-class quality and scintillating performance. Both companies are utterly dedicated to engineering the very best products to captivate consumers. Therefore, working with the very best integrators and cinema designers in the UK and Ireland is vital for the best experience to be heard and seen.

“Working with CEDIA and the cream of the integration community is key for us to retain the highest quality end-result for the customer as possible and I look forward to the exciting times ahead!”

Matt Nimmons, managing director of CEDIA EMEA added: “We are delighted to welcome Fine Sound UK to the CEDIA community and look forward to providing the necessary resources and platforms for them to engage with our network of home technology integrators.”
