21 Dec Riva Audio Announces Partnership With Azione Unlimited

Fountain Valley, CA, December 20, 2016 – Audio manufacturer RIVA Audio, the lifestyle brand of Audio Design Experts, Inc. (ADX™) recognized for its best-in-class audio products, today announced its new partnership with Azione Unlimited, the business networking, education, and buying group for integrators. This partnership will provide Azione’s members access to RIVA’s outstanding product line, including the new WAND series of multi-room “+” speakers, and gives RIVA a cohesive, well-trained and supported national network of leading edge entrepreneurs to work with. The partnership will also provide platforms that facilitate and encourage the sharing of ideas, group interaction, and ongoing education.

“This is an important partnership for RIVA as we get ready to launch the WAND series of products globally”, says Michael Gleason VP, Sales for RIVA Audio. Michael adds, “Azione represents a solid group of dealers who are some of the largest integrators in the CEDIA channel. We are excited to get in front of them and share our enthusiasm with these new wireless products.”  Richard Glikes, Director of Azione says, “RIVA looks to be the next big thing for the integrator channel. Here’s an easy to use, full-featured product with performance and margin. That’s the right combination to be extremely successful.”

Azione Unlimited was impressed with RIVA Audio’s 100+ years of combined experience in audio production and that the company continues to develop and launch world-class audio products that gain glowing reviews from places like CNET, Sound & Vision,Forbes, Mashable, USA Today, Digital Trends, Consumer Reports, The Absolute Sound, The Wirecutter, Stereophile and Yahoo! Tech and various others. RIVA was similarly inspired by the fact that 94% of Azione’s 178 members are integrators that do a combined annual business of $560M =, allowing RIVA to reach a large audience of customers.

Members and their customers will appreciate that RIVA’s products are powered by ADX’s proprietary Trillium™ technology, which offers stereo sound from a single speaker. The partnership will fully mature in 2017, when RIVA Audio embarks into the multi-space audio market with RIVA’S WAND series – a customizable and easy-to-use multi-room “+” audio system that delivers high quality, patented stereophonic sound from a single speaker. The result is an unrivaled audio experience that can play to any room or outdoor locations from any networked or online source. WAND offers a new way to play all your favorite music without restrictions, and Azione Unlimited members will be in a premiere position to offer the system to their customers.

Similarly, RIVA will benefit from the knowledge and experience of Azione’s member network to reach a larger audience of interested consumers, especially given how easy the WAND system is to use and setup. The RIVA WAND Series will include the ARENA and FESTIVAL speakers. Both the ARENA and FESTIVAL speakers have been named 2017 CES Innovations Award Honorees, are winners of the TWICE and Residential Systems CEDIA 2016 Best of Show Award and have received the Editor’s Choice from Innovation and Tech Today.

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 designs award winning audio 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. RIVA is headquartered in Southern California where they create and design their RIVA family of products. For more information about RIVA, please visit our social media pages:
