In a busy month for the company after announcing the addition of Middle Atlantic to its line-up, Habitech has announced a distribution agreement with Acurus, a US-based specialist in the design and manufacture of high-end audio processors and amplifiers for luxury home theatres.
Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, Acurus is a multi-award-winning American-made brand, dedicated to the delivery of flawless sound, build and operational quality. With a heritage of design excellence over 30 years, Acurus introduced its first high-end home theatre product line, the A2000 family of networked class A/B cinema amplifiers, in 2011.
Deploying advanced and proprietary technologies for audio, system set-up and control, Habitech says Acurus creates perfectly balanced solutions for demanding smart home installations.
The current range comprises three processing models including the ACT-4 designs (up to 20-channel) and the new, slender 2RU ‘MUSE’ processor, scheduled for UK release in Q1 this year.
Supporting amplifiers include the two-channel Aries model, the Scorpion multi-zone design and the new eight-channel M8, matching and launching with the MUSE processor.
In 2016, the award-winning ACT 4 16-channel immersive processor became the first of its kind to launch in the sub £10K price range with full Dolby Atmos and DTS:X integration.
Whether the need is for power, performance, flexibility, durability or upgradeability, its new distributor says Acurus products will deliver an experience of outstanding quality, supported by a five-year warranty across-the-board.
Commenting on the new arrangement, Habitech’s MD Jonathan Pengilley, says, “We’ve been looking for an exceptional audio processing brand to complement the performance of our Wisdom speaker line, and with its celebrated engineering pedigree, Acurus fits the bill perfectly. Acurus will enhance our peerless offer of performance, versatility and support to high-end cinema designers.”
Acurus’ VP of international sales, Sheldon Combs, adds, “We are very excited to partner with Habitech in the UK. They are a great organisation and Acurus fits nicely with their product offering. Acurus products are on the cutting edge of technology with the reliability that has earned them a great reputation among installers around the world.”
