DbM, previously known as Distributed by Meridian, has announced a new DbM partnership with Waterfall Audio, becoming the exclusive distributor within the UK market, and providing professional installers access to Waterfall’s glass and aluminium speaker range for home cinema and media room experiences.
“Waterfall share our ethos of excellent engineering, stunning aesthetic, and outstanding audio performance,” comments Barry Sheldrick, Director of Sales at DbM and Meridian Audio. “We are really excited to offer our dealers this new range of on-wall, in-wall, and in-room speakers from Waterfall Audio. All handmade in the South of France using glass and aluminium, these speakers are simply beautiful to look at and amazing to listen to, particularly when powered by Meridian amplifiers.
“To best demonstrate Waterfall Audio’s quality in design and sound, we are creating a DbM experience centre at our HQ by March 2020. This will be the perfect environment to experience the incredible aesthetics and excellent sound of Waterfall Audio, especially when powered by our Meridian 251 and 258 amplifiers. We are really excited to launch this new space in March!”
Established in 1996, Waterfall positions itself in a niche segment of the market with its innovating concept of glass-made speakers. Using innovative manufacturing processes for glass cutting with precision near 100 Microns, Waterfall has mastered the art of glass assembly, designing some unique products for the luxury audio visual market.
As DbM partners, UK integrators also have exclusive access to three compact on-wall speakers, along with a shallow mounting depth (73mm) in-wall/in-ceiling option for distributed audio, media rooms, or cinema systems. As well as this, the range includes three matching compact but mighty subwoofers, and three in-room glass speakers.
• Boasting elegance with its harmonious size and glass design, Iguasçu Evo is the most compact of Waterfall Audio’s floor-standing glass speakers, delivering a balanced and pure sound
• The Victoria Evo is another of Waterfall’s floor-standing speakers, using high density glass and multiple innovating technologies. The speaker is designed to be both elegant and powerful, as well as efficient and reliable when reproducing detailed sound.
• As the flagship product, Niagara combines strong architecture with the most exclusive materials and careful craftsmanship, reflecting Waterfall’s passion for the exceptional.
“We couldn’t be happier with the new partnership, it symbolises a new step for Waterfall Audio, as we continue our expansion out of France,” explains Cédric Aubriot, CEO of Waterfall Audio. “Being associated with such a world-famous brand is very exciting, it’s a goal of ours to provide unique solutions to an even wider audience, and DbM shares a passion for outstanding experiences. Having them on board as an exclusive UK distributor shows our trust that they’ll push our solutions further and grow our presence in the UK market.”
The offering also includes the Waterfall Professional Custom Series collection, a compact solution that can be integrated behind an acoustically transparent screen, primarily intended to be installed within private residential cinema rooms.
All Waterfall Audio products will be fully integrated into DbM’s complimentary Design and Specification Service (D&SS), allowing dealers to plan their projects around these innovations as efficiently and accurately as possible. Solutions from all DbM partners can be found on the D&SS system, assisting installers with a complete audio-visual scheme that can plan a project from start to finish.
