Audio Plus Launches Micromega in North America

Leading Specialty Distributor Reunites Legendary Audio Brand from France with High Performance Enthusiasts in U.S. and Canada

Champlain, NY March 2, 2009 - Audio Plus Services, a leading North American importer/distributor of premium products for the audio, video and home theater markets, announced a major addition to their prestigious family of brands. Effectively immediately, Micromega, the legendary brand of high performance audio components, is available once again in North America and will be sold through the exclusive Audio Plus network of authorized specialty dealers.


Since the 1980's, Micromega has been one of the best -regarded lines of high performance audio components in the world and a company of firsts. In 1987, the company made headlines with its CDF -1 Hitech, the industry's first top -loading CD player with sound quality embraced by audiophiles. Micromega followed that up in the next year with the first CD player with separate transport and D/A converter. Subsequent years saw highly innovative introductions in digital applications of audio and video products for both hi -fi and home theater use.

With 100% of their products designed and manufactured in France, today's Micromega HD Audio lineup consists of models for both two -channel audio (CD players, preamplifier, amplifiers and tuner) as well as home cinema. Slim aluminum chassis with elegant styling and aerospace precision house state -of -the -art innovations such as ACT power supply filtering, name -able inputs and amplifiers with unique displays. Yet despite the company's uncompromising standard of sonic performance and style, Micromega's products are surprisingly affordable and represent exceptional value.

According to Daniel Jacques, founder and president of Audio Plus Services, "When I learned of the opportunity to import Micromega into North America, it was indeed very exciting for me as an audio enthusiast. After visiting with the team at Micromega in France though I was even more excited about the long -term business opportunities that this outstanding brand offers."

Micromega's new owner and CEO, Didier Hamdi, commented, "Using vital experiences I've learned in world -class motorcycle racing, I enjoy combining my passion for music with the engineering skills needed to perform at a championship level; we've assembled a group of people dedicated to producing truly wonderful hi -fi products designed to move customer's spirits."

The Micromega line, dedicated to sonic perfection with style, is the perfect complement to the premium brands offered by Audio Plus Services.
