Merging Technologies, manufacturers of Merging+NADAC, Merging+PLAYER and the forthcoming Merging+POWER has announced that Edison Production Company will take over the distribution and support activities for these products in Germany.

The move from Digital Audio Service in Hamburg to Edison is entirely amicable and Thomas Römann from DAS expressed the explicit wish to again concentrate exclusively on Merging Technologies professional products. Edison Production Company BV in Holland has been Merging’s high-end distributor in the Benelux since the introduction of the Merging+NADAC, has established a dealer network and has a reputation for technical and marketing support.

Edison’s CEO, Bert van der Wolf, is a highly regarded tonmeister who was one of the main presenters in the ‘Musik grenzenlos’ demonstration room at the recent High End Munich show.

Ensuring that the handover is as smooth as possible, Digital Audio Service will continue as a dealer for the Merging+ product range, which will be very helpful during the initial period of Edison getting to know the market and the partners operating in the territory. Edison will be participating in two major events in the autumn. First will be at the X-fi show in Veldhoven (NL) on the weekend of September 30th where there will be 5.1 demonstrations in collaboration with daudio and their speaker systems. Then during the weekend of October 21st there will a repeat of the performance of the Munich High End presentation at the Deutsche Hifi Tage in Darmstadt, Germany. These will also be 5.1 demonstrations in collaboration with ME Geithain speakers, our partners in Munich.

Bert van der Wolf will be doing something else rather unique in early August. He will take a Merging+NADAC and the prototype Merging+POWER to a vinyl disc cutting session, where it will be used as the DXD master source directly into the Direct Metal Cutting machine at the record plant. The recording was made on Merging’s Pyramix Digital Audio Workstation and features Bach’s Goldberg Variations in String trio arrangement played by Camerata RCO, players from the Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam. This was recorded by Bert last year.

Commenting on the changes in German distribution, Merging’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Chris Hollebone, offered this perspective; “Bert van der Wolf is uniquely capable of representing the Merging+ product range. He has tremendous experience in how to present premium products to discerning audiophiles, plus he has been making extremely high-quality recordings for many years. He has unparalleled experience in surround sound recording and reproduction and one of the best listening facilities in the world. He has been helping Merging to keep at the pinnacle of audio quality for many years and we are convinced that German dealers and customers will benefit from his knowledge and passion.”
