Classé Audio Available in Australia Once Again

Canadian brand Classé Audio is set for another lease of life after Bowers & Wilkins Australia has announced it will distribute the brand in Australia.

Founded in 1980 and based outside Montreal, the brand previously owned by Bowers & Wilkins announced the closure of the company in July 2017  following the acquisition of B&W Group by Silicon Valley's EVA Automation, effectively leaving the brand an orphan.

Sound United emerged at the 11th hour as its new owner and the company quickly ramped up its design department and debuted three new products at Munich's High End Show in 2019. 

The stars aligned once again this year as a result of Sound United acquiring Bowers & Wilkins following its split from EVA Automation, and in turn, has confirmed that B&W's Australian subsidiary will now distribute Classé Audio in Australia.

As we reported last year, the new Delta series includes the Delta MONO ($17,900), Delta STEREO ($19,900) and Delta PRE ($16,900), all manufactured in Sound United's Shirakawa Audio Works factory in Japan.

Bowers & Wilkins Australia has said the new Classé Audio Delta components would be available to purchase in Australia shortly.
