Network AV, the northern Sydney based AV distributor is now the official Australian representative of Goldenear Technology speakers. The brand was previously part of the Advance Audio portfolio.

Goldenear’s co-founder founder and industry stalwart, Sandy Gross, is looking forward to Network AV handling this US audiophile quality speaker brand.

He told StereoNET:

We are very pleased with the work put in by Advance Audio over the years and have enjoyed working with them.

I’m very excited to take on Network AV as our new partner for Australia and am confident they will continue to drive Goldenear.

The amicable handover of Goldenear continues Advance Audio’s current restructuring and streamlining plans.

The company recently relinquished distribution for Mark Levinson and Revel speakers. It also appointed Nigel Ng as its new general manager following Michael DiMeglio’s move to Busisoft AV in April.

Advance Audio clearly wants to focus on core brands it sees as vital to the direction it has charted for growth and expansion.

The Sydney based distributor still holds key brands including Arcam, Wilson Audio, Linn, and KEF, along with a dozen other high profile brands.

Josef Riediger, Advance Audio's Director is full of praise for Network AV.

He said:

We’re happy that Network AV are taking on Goldenear. They will do an excellent job with the brand and we wish Claver Harper and the team all the success they deserve.

Brands are continually changing distributors in Australia. The majority change hands in far less harmonious conditions.

Goldenear Technology’s latest move shows some distributors, in this case, Advance Audio, don’t outsource their business code of ethics.
