Lode Audio, the UK-based audio company that creates products dedicated to the Custom Installation market, has partnered with CAVD (Custom AV Distribution) to act on its behalf for all sales activities throughout the UK CI market.

In response to the growth of the brand and its products over the last two years, CAVD was seen as the perfect partner for Lode Audio, as it offers the high-level of professionalism and technical sales support the brand was looking for. The appointment of CAVD frees up valuable time for the Lode Audio team to continue its product and software development, whilst providing the ongoing direct technical support and consultancy services to both its domestic and international customers.

Commenting on CAVD’s appointment, Ed Stark, co-founder of Lode Audio, said, “We have witnessed unprecedented growth in the last two years and had reached breaking point, in a good way! So that we can continue to develop our products and services yet continue to offer the high-levels of service we are known for, the appointment of a distributor for the UK market was essential and CAVD was the obvious choice.  Not only are they totally professional, they also offer the high-levels of sales support our customers require. I am sure it will be a fruitful partnership and support the continued growth of Lode Audio in the UK.”

“We’re thrilled to be representing Lode Audio as their distribution partner in the UK”, said Jamie Pullen, managing director of CAVD. Jamie continued, “Lode’s streaming solutions offer countless benefits to any CI integrator and ultimately the end user. It’s a product that deserves to be in every rack. They have great plans moving forward which we are very excited to be part of.”

Quickly becoming the multizone audio source of choice for both commercial and residential CI integrators in the UK and Europe, Lode Audio’s product range, which includes the four-zone LA4 and single-zone LA1 audio players, all feature high-end DACs capable of high-resolution audio playback. With music streaming becoming the go to source for CI, all of the company’s products are compatible with the leading music streaming services (including TIDAL and Deezer) along with network stored content and Airplay, whilst full integration with the major automation control platforms, such as Creston, AMX, Control4, RTI and Command Fusion, offers seamless integration into any automation system.
