DEVIALET NAMES AQIPA AS NEW AUSTRALIAN HOME
Established distributors Interdyn gave up the brand in September 2018, with Sam Encel, Interdyn's Co-Director saying at the time:
This has been an incredibly difficult decision for us to make. We continue to love the products and have great respect for the company. We also know that many of you enjoy handling the product, so to voluntarily cease this relationship is hard for us both at a business and emotional level.
Interdyn has continued to provide after-sales support for Devialet customers and remained committed to an orderly transition to its future arrangements.
Interdyn Co-Director Evgeny Vizelman told StereoNET:
Interdyn supports the appointment of Aqipa for Devialet distribution in ANZ, and we wish them the best for future business.
It is understood Aqipa has established a new Hi-Fi business unit and will provide end-to-end support for all product lines including Phantom Premier, Phantom Reactor and Expert PRO, to existing and new Devialet retailers.
Christian Trapl, Aqipa GmbH CEO told StereoNET:
Devialet's passion for audio and proven track record of bringing premium, innovative and lifestyle product to the world of consumer electronics make them a perfect addition to our ANZ family. We are excited about this new partnership and look forward to taking the brand to the next level.
Devialet joins brands distributed by Aqipa in the local region such as Marshall, B&O, Master&Dynamic, Pure, and more. Aqipa GmbH is headquartered in Austria and has been established for more than 25 years. Aqipa Australia operates from state-of-the-art facilities in Victoria's Dandenong South.
