New Agreement Between Autograph Sales & Installations And KV2
LONDON, SEPTEMBER 17th 2017 - Leading UK integrator and reseller Autograph Sales & Installations are delighted to announce their appointment as one of the UK’s premier distribution partners and main dealers for KV2 Audio, designers and manufacturers of contemporary loudspeaker systems and associated products.
Following the original introduction from Ross Portway, the new agreement follows a lengthy period of cooperation and collaboration between KV2 and Autograph Sound which has resulted in the deployment of KV2 systems on a number of productions including ‘Bend It Like Beckham’, ‘Dreamgirls', ‘Annie’, ‘The Addams Family’ and ‘Mamma Mia’. Autograph’s Duncan Bell explains, ‘The demand for KV2 systems for these shows and others soon to go out originated with a number of sound designers (notably Richard Brooker and Bobby Aitken) who approached us and asked us to look at KV2 for their projects. A very good working relationship with the KV2 team developed quickly and as a result we now have a number of great-sounding shows equipped with their products both in the West End and on international tours.’
Duncan continues, ‘Our experiences with the brand - not only in terms of their product portfolio but also their professionalism and approach to our markets - showed us that they could also be an ideal partner for Autograph Sales & Installations. We do not add dealership or distribution lines to our business very often, but the diversity of projects we are undertaking across many markets requires a broad and flexible portfolio of products - KV2 is an extremely valuable addition to our product range.’
Autograph Sales & Installations have already delivered their first KV2 products. Neatly highlighting the scope and potential of the KV2 portfolio, they include a multi-role suite of loudspeakers, amplifiers and controllers to a leading independent school and a range of EX and ES-series products to the hire inventory of a busy event production company.
KV2’s Jonathan Reece-Farren remarked, ‘It has been very refreshing to work with a company as professional and well regarded as Autograph. With their reputation for going the extra mile and with them already handling many of the UK’s highest-profile theatre productions and installation projects, our shared ethos for delivering an audio experience beyond expectation lends itself perfectly to this partnership and the product portfolio of KV2.’
‘The Autograph team’s technical expertise and knowledge base also provides us with incredible confidence, as a manufacturer, that our products are being represented, specified and supported to the highest possible level. With a number of successful projects now completed and several others at the initial stages of design, it is an exciting time for both of our companies.’
