Snap One Adds Sound United Brands to Expansive Audio Portfolio

Denon, Marantz and Definitive Technology Now Available Online and at Local Pro Stores

CHARLOTTE, NC (August 25, 2021) – Snap One, an industry-leading one-stop shop where pros can purchase products needed for custom integration jobs, today announced it is carrying an assortment of SKUs from acclaimed audio brands Denon, Marantz and Definitive Technology[1] on its ecommerce platform and in Partner Stores across the U.S. The addition of these award-winning audio brands reinforces the distributor’s focus on being the place “Where Pros Buy Audio” from both in-house Snap One brands and third-party manufacturers.

“The proliferation in audio installations over the past year cannot be ignored and is a huge area of growth for installers,” said Snap One Senior Vice President of Product Management, Mike Jordan. “Our commitment is to offer the best solutions possible for a broad range of categories, so installers have the right product for the job whenever they need it. Denon, Marantz and Definitive Technology are established audio providers and have been for decades. The addition of these lauded brands and their products to our portfolio is a powerful supplement for installers being increasingly tapped for distributed audio, home theater, outdoor, and other audio-focused builds.”

Products from Denon, Marantz and Definitive Technology are ideally positioned for integrators to build bigger, better-sounding and more immersive audio systems for their clients. With a range of products from wireless all-in-one smart speakers to sound bars, to multichannel AV processors and receivers, the three venerable brands enable integrators to take their audio installs to new heights. Whether that be an industry-leading IMAX Enhanced home theater capable of connecting to a distributed wireless audio system, or an immersive backyard setup, the possibilities across the three audio brands are extensive.

“We’re reentering a golden age of audio after more than a decade of seeing consumer demand for small, low-fidelity audio products stemming from the rise of the MP3. The propagation of high-resolution streaming technologies, coupled with ballooning demand for premium at-home streaming services like HBO Max are ushering in a full-scale renaissance for better home theater and hi-fi systems,” said James Krakowski, vice president of commercial operations at Sound United, parent company to Denon, Marantz and Definitive Technology. “We’re confident this newly-forged partnership with Snap One will empower installers everywhere to make better purchasing decisions based on quality, rather than simply price.”

The full list of products from Denon, Marantz and Definitive Technology are available at Snap One’s Pro Stores with a curated selection available through its award-winning eCommerce platform. The overall assortment is inclusive of AV Receivers and Processors, Architectural and Custom Install speakers, Outdoor Speakers, HEOS Wireless Multi Room and Whole Home Audio products, and Home Theater and High-Performance Loudspeakers.

“Sourcing high-end audio solutions for builds is now significantly easier thanks to this partnership. We look forward to servicing our partners and clients with the same top-notch assistance our constituents have come to expect from Snap One,” Jordan concluded.
