Overview In Brief
Nexus Audio Technologies was established for the dual purposes of building awareness of the high performance audio category, and to open doors for select, carefully chosen specialty brands—offering best-in-class performance.
Founded by audio industry veteran Walter Schofield, Nexus capitalizes on Mr. Schofield’s deep experience working on behalf of audio designers and manufacturers who represent the best of what the market has to offer. Schofield, who serves as Nexus Audio’s President, created the company to bring audiophile-grade, exquisitely designed speakers and electronics to a broad market including audiophiles and high-net-worth individuals. These coveted, consumer market segments stand ready to invest whatever it takes to satisfy their passion for music and home theatre systems.
“I established Nexus after decades of growing companies in the traditional audiophile and luxury lifestyle channels,” states Mr. Schofield. “With multiple brands seeking representation for growing awareness, market penetration and sales in North America, Nexus Audio Technologies focuses on supporting manufacturers with exemplary staff, ultimate product performance and highly differentiated marketing initiatives. All told, ours is a uniquely strong business proposition for A/V Dealer Partners throughout North America.”
The inaugural Nexus Client Partner Brands include:
Alta Audio — Led by audio designer Michael Levy, Alta Audio specializes in speakers that combine unparalleled aesthetics with proprietary technology to produce sonics that replicate the artist’s vision.
Infigo Audio — A prestigious Canadian company, Infigo Audio designs and manufactures amplifiers, DACs, and cables for music lovers and audiophiles who are ready to invest in exquisitely designed electronics.
Nexus Audio’s services also encompass public relations. Working closely with its strategic partner, Sohmer Associates LLC, Nexus provides boutique public relations and marketing communications services to its Client Partner Brands. NYC-based Sohmer Associates is dedicated solely to serving the consumer and professional segments of the electronics industry. Agency Founder and President Adam Sohmer possesses significant depth of expertise, earned over 30 years spent working with companies of every size including Alta Audio, Sony, Panasonic, Marantz, NHT, Rockford Fosgate, Polk Audio, and HIFIMAN Electronics, among many others.
The Nexus Audio Technologies, LLC and Sohmer Associates LLC partnership oversees the full suite of services for all Nexus Client Brands in the US and Canada—including all aspects of sales, sales & marketing programs, media relations, materials development, social media and more.
Adds Mr. Schofield, “Some of our most important partnerships are with our Dealers and Distributors. We rely on them for feedback and recommendations. In return, we’re commited to providing them with the highest level of customer service in the high performance audio market.”
