SCV Named Audix Distributor of the Year EMEA 2016

We are excited to announce that for the third year running, SCV has been awarded the title of "Distributor of The Year" for Europe, the Middle East and Africa by Audix Microphones! The criteria for this esteemed award is measured on significantly improved sales statistics, avid marketing contributions and both the quality and growth of artist liaison efforts within the EMEA region.

The last year has seen a number of Audix’s most innovative products experience a fairly dramatic rise to fame including the M3 ceiling microphone system, Audix’s OM-Series live vocal microphones, and the D-Series line of dynamic instrument microphones.

“Audix has seen excellent growth in sales year-on-year in both the installed sound sector as well as the MI marketplace. Audix’s range boasts an enviable product portfolio covering all of the bases when it comes to microphone applications; dynamic and condenser vocal and instrument ranges, USB mics, lavaliers, hanging and boundary mics, podium and gooseneck options, ceiling and wall microphones – the list goes on!

“In the installed sound sector we have seen quite a breath-taking level of interest in the innovative Audix M3 tri-element ceiling microphone, first released at the ISE Show 2015. The M3’s pristine sound quality coupled with its ease of installation has propelled the M3 to becoming one of the go-to audio capture solutions for all types of conferencing.

“The OM and D series dynamic microphones and drum packs also continue to grow from strength to strength, but I have to reserve a special mention for the Audix D6 Kick Drum Microphone, I think it’s fairly safe to say that the D6 has become an industry standard across the globe.”

And Audix’s innovations aren’t stopping there. The recently announced “Performance Series” marks the company’s latest foray into wireless microphone systems, neatly augmenting their catalogue and bringing Audix’s signature sound to all live scenarios where freedom of movement is a must.

2016 also brought the announcement that after many years of service, Audix’s much-revered Sales and Marketing VP, (and Audix Co-Founder) Cliff Castle, would be retiring.

“I was honored and excited to present this award to SCV at this year’s sales meeting. SCV has been the UK Audix distributor since 2007 and has experienced positive growth every year since they started. They have an excellent team, represent a range of quality products, and have positioned Audix as a premium brand in the marketplace. In particular, I have enjoyed working with Ian, who joined SCV four years ago. He took Audix under his wing and passionately built the dealer network as well as the artist roster. I can say without reservation that as I step down and as Chris Doss takes over, Audix is poised for substantial growth in the UK!”
