Auden Distribution was born through a love of music and a desire to spread the word on what a really good audiophile music replay system is capable of. For over three decades the Auden team have worked throughout the UK audio industry in retail, manufacturing, trade sales and distribution, building an unsurpassed relationship with the UK’s premier audio retailers.

The knowledge and insight gained of the UK market is extensive and we work alongside a host of trusted and experienced professionals in sales, marketing, exhibitions and PR to ensure clients can come to the market with a fully comprehensive business plan.

As owner/director I have worked across the audio industry for over 30 years. Between 2005 and 2013 I worked as a sales agent on behalf of Icon Developments, the exclusive UK distributor of the prestigious Tannoy brand, along with a range of premium audio brands with genuinely class-leading products.

My experience comes from eight years as Area Sales Manager for Mission Loudspeakers, a career which followed on from 20 years as a high-end audio retailer.

Mine and my colleague’s passion for music as well as delivering a premium service to premium dealers for premium brands has never been stronger, and at our core is working with a network of the best audiophile dealers across the UK delivering quality demonstrations and following up with the high levels of service required for high-end audio equipment.

We also have exceptional contacts across retail multiples and the specialist retail chains. This ensures we can target our brands’ products with precision and passion in equal measure.

The industry is constantly changing, yet some things remain the same; people do business with people.

A good solid link between the manufacturer and the dealer network remains vital for success, and providing that link is the founding principle of my business.
