Monitor Audio acquires Roksan
Premium loudspeaker specialist Monitor Audio has acquired another leading audio manufacturer, Roksan.
Monitor Audio and Roksan are both British companies committed to superior audio performance, reads a press release, with a reputation for design excellence, premium quality and exceptional value.
We’ve certainly been impressed with Monitor audio products in the past, including the recent great value Bronze 5.1 Speaker Package and MA100 Streaming ‘lifestyle audio’ System, although our exposure to Roksan kit has been more limited.
Established in 1985, Roksan is a well-respected manufacturer of amplifiers, loudspeakers, turntables and streaming products which are designed and manufactured at their London headquarters. This purchase will add greatly to Monitor Audio’s portfolio, according to the company.
With the launch of its premium Platinum II loudspeakers and the growth of its custom install series and other award-winning speaker ranges, Monitor Audio has had a very successful 2016. The acquisition of Roksan reflects this success, presumably meaning there was enough money in the coffers for the acquisition.
The two companies will continue to run as separate entities but under common ownership. The synergy between the two brands will create exciting possibilities for both Monitor Audio and Roksan, says the statement, and we wish them both the Best of British.
