Sonus faber Moves Distribution to Fine Sounds UK
Absolute Sounds passes UK distribution of Sonus faber to Fine Sounds UK.
Absolute Sounds has handled Sonus faber’s UK distribution since 1986 and has today announced that, after 34 years, the McIntosh Group is taking the loudspeaker brand’s UK distribution in-house under Fine Sounds UK.

Lionel Nunney, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for the McIntosh Group, added:
Ricardo and Absolute Sounds have greatly contributed to the story of Sonus faber, and we are grateful for his passion and dedication through the years. Our partnership and friendship will continue as Ricardo collaborates with us as a member of the Sonus faber Distributor Advisory Council. He also continues as our distributor in Portugal alongside his
Fine Sounds UK, a McIntosh Group Company, will be operating in the UK from August 3rd.
