AKG Acoustics Expands Product Offerings With Crown Microphones

Extending AKG’s position as a global leader in microphone technology, AKG Acoustics recently announced the acquisition of the worldwide distribution rights for the Crown family of microphones. The integration of Crown microphones into AKG Acoustics’ product portfolio adds to AKG’s global position as one of the world’s leading sources of high-quality microphones. As a result of the partnership, AKG distributors now handle the worldwide distribution for two of the industry’s leading microphone brands.

Crown is a Harman International company that specializes in manufacturing amplifiers, microphones, and system control products for audio markets worldwide. Thomas Stubics, Product Manager for Recording and Broadcast at AKG stated, ” Crown microphones are among the elite and are top-of-the-line products that are very well known for their outstanding performance. The diversity of the Crown microphone line is the perfect match for AKG’s stronghold as a source of industry-leading products.?

AKG Acoustics is looking forward to its partnership with Crown International as each company has played a major role in the professional audio industry. Stubics continues, “With AKG’s expertise in the global microphone business, the new partnership of AKG and Crown is a logical next step that will benefit the customers and business partners for AKG and Crown microphones. AKG has invested a large amount of time and money into its distribution infrastructure, and the partnership with Crown will solidify our global distribution strategy.?

Harman International, the world’s largest professional audio company, acquired AKG in 1993 and then purchased Crown in 2000 in order to gain a stronger foothold in the microphone market. Both companies have made major contributions to the art and science of audio engineering and are responsible for a large number of groundbreaking products that have become milestones in microphones, headphones, amplifiers and wireless systems.
