Juke Audio, a new company that offers a line of whole-house audio systems, has announced the company’s first national distribution deal with Crutchfield Corporation.
This partnership will accelerate the adoption of Juke’s modernized multiroom audio technology in the United States through Crutchfield’s extensive retail operations.
“From our first meeting with Crutchfield, it was evident how they’ve earned and maintained their reputation as one of the most trusted and well-respected consumer electronics retailers in North America over the past forty years,” says Colton Forth, president Juke Audio.
“At Juke, we’ve been meticulous in providing stellar customer service through our direct channels, so it was imperative that we partner with an organization that prides themselves on the same customer centric values.”
This new agreement will bring Juke’s 12- and 16-channel streaming amplifiers directly into Crutchfield’s online store alongside manufacturers of complimentary product offerings, i.e., in-wall & in-ceiling speakers, surround sound receivers, etc. Additionally, Crutchfield’s residential AV systems design team will recommend Juke’s product offerings to customers looking to power and stream wired speakers systems across their homes in a cost-effective way.
Since commercializing in November 2019, Juke Audio has sold its streaming amplifiers exclusively through its own direct channels. This agreement with Crutchfield will expand on those efforts, and has been met with great excitement from both parties.
“I’m pleased to partner with Juke to offer our customers an affordable solution for multi-room audio,” notes Crutchfield executive, Tommy Kinstle.
“I really like the versatility that their products offer. Having multiple streaming inputs, tons of source options, and the ability to wirelessly link multiple amplifiers is invaluable to customers whether they’re just getting their system started or they’re expanding an existing one.”
This partnership comes on the heels of Juke Audio’s first appearance at the 2021 CEDIA Expo, where the company found success formulating direct relationships with audio installers across the country.
