French Luxury Speaker Maker, Waterfall Audio, Appoints Grace Motif as US Distributor Arizona based importer's first strategic addition embodies high "DAF" (Design Acceptance Factor)

April 11, 2012, Scottsdale AZ

French luxury speaker supplier, Waterfall Audio has appointed Grace Motif, Inc as their exclusive distributor for USA and US territories. Waterfall Audio specialises in handcrafted loudspeakers that incorporate residential-friendly safety glass cabinetry and glass design elements infused with proprietary technology that ensures audiophile-grade performance.

As Grace Motif's first strategic brand addition to its initial product mix, (Artcoustic speakers, Cineversum HD projectors and Image Screen precision screens), Waterfall Audio is well suited to the company's mission of delivering luxury audio-video experiences that exceed clients expectations and design-centric needs.

"We are gratified to partner with Waterfall Audio" stated John Caldwell, Grace Motif's Founder and President. "Several of our dealers encouraged us to partner with Waterfall Audio because of their amazing performance, high design concept and synergistic fit with our other designer friendly brands. The growing interest in luxury-class audio and video products by our clients and the design community in what we offer, makes us confident that we can take Waterfall to the next level", asserted Caldwell.

"This is an exciting time for Waterfall Audio", said Waterfall's Export Manager, Nadine Chaix-Dewell. The appointment of Grace Motif and their proven dealer network to bring greater awareness to this distinctive brand coincides with the introduction of our company's new brand identity and our redesigned Niagara reference model (reduced from $54,000 to $39,500/pr) for greater value. We love the synergy and ability of Grace Motif and their network. We are in good company."

Waterfall Audio glass loudspeakers feature virtually invisible seams and corners created by Waterfall's exclusive glass-fabrication techniques. Proprietary die cast drivers are expertly isolated from any cabinet resonances while all wiring is embedded into the glass walls of the cabinets while crossovers and proprietary pressure management technology is located under the base at floor level, to preserve the dramatic, unprecedented visual impact. "Our goal has always been to provide a unique visual impact with no-compromise audio performance," says company founder and managing director Cedric Aubriot. "Waterfall's glass-loudspeaker designs make a lifestyle statement that is utterly unique, because they literally disappear into the room."

Waterfall Audio's product line consist of strategically positioned desktop models starting at $275 each, versatile on-wall/in-wall/on-shelf satellites/powered subwoofers starting at $840 each and three tower monitors starting at $4950/pr, that can be configured for two-channel, multi-channel/home theatre, or desk-top/computer media audio systems.

Established in 1996, Waterfall Audio represents a radical rethink of the loudspeaker. With their dramatic style, glass construction and breathtaking performance, these handcrafted masterpieces are drawn like "art objects" and offer a unique blend of innovative technical development, with unequal elegance and discretion. Located in the French Riviera, Waterfall Audio is now distributed in more than 30 countries. Visit for more details.
