As of January 2011, Korg USA in Melville, New York, will take on exclusive U.S. distribution for the Elements line of HK Audio products. For more than 20 years, HK Audio, with global headquarters and engineering based in Germany, has produced sound reinforcement systems that are said to be environmentally responsible. Korg USA will debut the company’s Elements line of portable audio products in the U.S. at the 2011 Winter NAMM trade show in Anaheim, Calif. (January 13-16).
“In line with Korg USA’s longstanding reputation as a brand builder, we welcome the opportunity to develop the HK brand in the U.S.,” says Korg USA President Joe Castronovo. “HK is a high-quality and respected brand in Europe, and we’re proud to now represent them in our market.”
“I am delighted that Korg USA decided to become our exclusive Elements partner in the U.S. market,” says Hans Stamer, president of HK Audio. “We thank Korg USA for their trust and confidence in our company and products. I am more than convinced that this partnership will be a very successful one.”
“Korg USA has a reputation as a strong brand builder and great sales organization,” adds Andreas Mayerl, director of international sales for HK Audio. “With their support and efforts, we will establish Elements and HK Audio firmly in the U.S. market.”
The HK Audio Elements system is a line-source system that links modern line-array technology with ultra-compact P.A. systems. Comprising six components, Elements offers a portable, lightweight and adaptable sound reinforcement solution. Users can add or remove components from the system via E-Connect, an integrated coupler/bus that provides mixing and matching capabilities. Complete sound systems can be configured as a P.A. for a local town hall, a house-of-worship application or for a wedding.
