Origin Acoustics Lands New Australian Home with Oceanic Distribution

One of the leading manufacturers and go-to choice of integrators for architectural audio products, Origin Acoustics, is now available in Australia once again, thanks to Oceanic Distribution.

Appointed as its exclusive Australian distribution partner, Origin has enjoyed tremendous global growth for its vast application range, as well as tool-less installation, and of course, its sound quality.

From humble beginnings, company founders Ken Humphries and Ed Haase opened a small stereo store in Riverside, California, in 1976. They saw an opportunity to bring an entirely new level of music quality into the home and began to experiment with speaker designs.

While listening to a pair of stereo speakers in a family room was a great experience, it was their vision that people wanted to enjoy music throughout the home. In the early 80s, Ken and Ed invented a loudspeaker that would mount flush into the wall and change the face of an industry. The company's name and branding, ownership, and even the designs themselves may have evolved a few times. Still, Origin Acoustics has gone on to become the second most popular brand in the category, as published in the 2019 CEPro Brand Analysis.

Origin's international director, Jose Coelho, told StereoNET:

Oceanic Distribution impressed us with its deep knowledge of the Australian market and reputation with our customers in the region. We're now working hard to get product to our clients and friends.

James Hicks, Business Development Director at Oceanic Distribution, added:

We're delighted to add Origin Acoustics' impressive line of products to our business, we look forward to taking care of all Origin's clients and friends in Australia as well as making new ones.

The new distribution agreement, effective immediately, will see Oceanic supplying, supporting, and marketing the entire Origin range within Australia. Dealer enquiries are welcome.
