Premium audio component brand Marantz has been added to the distribution portfolio of CE distributor WAVE Electronics + AVAD, making the brand available at WAVE + AVAD’s more than 30 locations in the U.S. and Canada. The addition will include a broad spectrum of both Marantz hi-fi components like the PM8006 and integrator-focused processing units like the AV 8805.
According to the announcement, WAVE Electronics + AVAD will leverage its just-in-time distribution model. The company also offers in-house tech support services to dealers, which includes system design. Its group of experts in the field can troubleshoot issues while dealers are on the jobsite, as well as offer complimentary design services for dealer projects for all levels of complexity. Dealers can also get up to a three percent rebate on Marantz products once they enroll in the 9/3 Rebate Program.
Another dealer benefit is WAVE Electronics + AVAD’s same-day product swap offering, which provides support for defective products, or to accommodate listeners who wish to upgrade on a near-immediate basis.
“The dealer network and professional services made available by this distributor are industry-leading, and we think Marantz customers are going to be pleasantly surprised by how quickly and efficiently they’ll be able to purchase, receive and swap Marantz gear moving forward, ” said Ted Thompson, Marantz parent Sound United’s director of sales, in the announcement statement.
