Blaze Audio Debuts in North American Market
Following an initial launch in Europe, Blaze Audio has announced its formal entry into the professional audio market in North America. As a subsidiary of Pascal A/S of Copenhagen, Denmark — supplier of amplifier electronics for the AV market — Blaze Audio has entered the field with its PowerZone Connect series of fully matrixed, DSP-loaded network power amplifier products. PowerZone amplifiers enable intuitive control from a wide range of smart devices, including phones, tablets and laptops.
Blaze Audio’s North American operations are spearheaded by Kevin Wilkin, who serves as the company’s executive sales director for North America.
“Blaze Audio is Pascal’s own commercial brand of audio products with the excellent design and build quality one would expect from this proven industry leader,” Wilkin said. “As Pascal amplifier technology has long served the top audio manufacturers the company OEMs for, Blaze Audio amplifiers carry both the credibility and the value proposition necessary to become a major commercial and pro audio provider. We see a market that is ripe with opportunity and are eager to charge forward.”
With its North American headquarters located in Greensboro, North Carolina, Blaze Audio said in a company statement it is on a mission to partner with AV integrators by delivering value that is “meaningful to their operations.” It plans to do so by providing quality commercial audio products with innovative features and flexible operation.
“We simplify the integrator’s design and project management loads by engineering in a way that enables fewer products to cover more types of install applications,” Wilkin said. “This approach lets system integrators and distributors manage fewer models while simplifying design, service, support, stocking, in- and out-bound ordering, plus logistics. We aim to become the easiest and most supportive manufacturer for AV integrators to do business with.”
