Australian HIFI - - SOUNDBITES -

French man­u­fac­turer Fo­cal has ap­pointed N. A. Dis­trib­u­tors as its new Aus­tralian dis­trib­u­tor for home au­dio prod­ucts. N.A. Dis­trib­u­tors, which has branches in Australia and New Zealand, is owned and op­er­ated by Chris Mur­phy and Deb­bie Stan­ton (pic­tured be­low). The two have been the sole Aus­tralian/NZ dis­trib­u­tor for Naim for many years, so fol­low­ing the merger of Naim and Fo­cal in 2011, in­dus­try an­a­lysts pre­dicted that the two com­pa­nies would con­sol­i­date their world­wide dis­tri­bu­tion ar­range­ments. ‘ The merger in 2011 of Naim and Fo­cal, two ma­jor play­ers in the global au­dio mar­ket, cre­ated an in­dus­try pow­er­house,’ said Ger­ard Chre­tien, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Fo­cal. ‘ This has driven the strate­gic pair­ing of the two brands un­der one dis­tri­bu­tion um­brella in larger mar­kets world­wide, a strat­egy that makes sound busi­ness sense.’ Mur­phy told Aus­tralian Hi-Fi Mag­a­zine that Fo­cal range of Hi-Fi and Home Cinema Loud­speak­ers, its Spirit Head­phones and its Multi-Me­dia and Wire­less prod­ucts were a per­fect com­ple­ment to Naim’s range of am­pli­fi­ca­tion, stream­ing and mu­sic sys­tems. ‘ We are de­lighted that our strong busi­ness per­for­mance as Naim Au­dio’s Aus­tralian and New Zealand Dis­trib­u­tor fits with Fo­cal’s long-term plan for this mar­ket,’ he said. ‘ All of us are ex­cited about the pos­si­bil­i­ties for ex­pand­ing Fo­cal’s pres­ence in Australia and the op­por­tu­nity to en­hance the Naim brand with the ad­di­tion of Fo­cal prod­ucts’.
