RIVA customers now have the convenience and flexibility to choose 3, 6, or 12 monthly payments for online purchases

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, California, November 18, 2015 - RIVA Audio, the lifestyle brand of Audio Design Experts, Inc. (ADX), recognized for its best-in-class audio products, announced today it has teamed up with Affirm, a financial technology company, to offer easy financing for purchases made online at www.rivaaudio.com.

RIVA has set a bold new standard and a defiant rejection of the idea that people cannot afford great audio and must accept the bland experience of today's tin-can wireless speakers. With Affirm, RIVA allows a new generation of music lovers the flexibility to control how they pay for RIVA products - getting them closer to audio that delivers truly epic performance and enhances their modern lifestyle. Using Affirm's payment options, music lovers can purchase great-sounding products, like the RIVA Turbo X or RIVA S, and can pay for them over time in a way that fits their individual financial needs.

"RIVA Audio wants everyone to enjoy the award-winning sound of our RIVA speakers. We're excited to be partnering with Affirm, as they give our customers the ability to choose a flexible payment plan for the products they want. It's one more barrier we can remove between music lovers and a great music experience, said Rikki Farr, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer.

Paying with Affirm is easy. Shoppers simply select to pay with Affirm at checkout, and

apply using just a few pieces of top-of-mind personal information. Approval decisions are provided within seconds. Interest rates range from 10-30% APR based on the applicant's creditworthiness.

"Affirm's goal is to empower people to obtain the items they are passionate about and that can help improve their lives," says Ed Lin, head of marketing at Affirm. "We are proud to be partnering with RIVA, which is revolutionizing the audio industry with its innovative, high-quality speakers that improve the listening experience for music lovers. Our values of doing what is best for the customer fundamentally align."

RIVA customers can now purchase the audio products they love, with the convenience and peace of mind of paying in monthly installments that fit their budgets.

RIVA Audio was born from a simple yet powerful idea: That legendary audio guru Rikki Farr (Chairman of ADX) coupled with passionate designers, patent awarded engineers, pioneering rock 'n' rollers and leaders from the world of commerce could create a real alternative to much of today's over processed audio. RIVA Audio designs award winning products by combining the very best components with the true art of audio tuning for people who are passionate about music and are seeking great performance, value and enhancement of their modern lifestyle. RIVA is a philosophy, a bold new standard and a defiant rejection of the idea that people can't afford great audio and therefore must accept the bland experience of today's tin-can wireless speakers.
