This will boost PMC’s presence in the Asia Pacific region and CSR will manage all sales and support for the company’s domestic products and ensure high levels of service to retailers across the country.CSR Japan Signing with Miles

CSR Inc., based in Sagamihara, Kanagawa, approximately 30 miles west of Tokyo, was founded in 1991 and is run by Mr Norinaga Nakazawa, president and managing director, who oversees the 50 strong team. The company’s overriding objective is to build trusting relationships with its customers, suppliers, employees and shareholders; facets that fit perfectly with PMC’s own philosophy.

The company manufactures its own brand of ‘Soul Note’ audio equipment, developed by its R&D team, which has extensive experience in digital electronics, having previously worked for one of the very well respected Japanese hifi brands. CSR also manufacturers radio communications equipment (for the Japanese fire and rescue service), karaoke equipment, including wireless microphones and amplifiers, plus education electronics. Its Soul Note range is to be further developed to complement PMC loudspeakers.

Products from across PMC’s domestic portfolio, including the twenty series, the fact series and the smallest model in the range, the DB1 Gold, will be stocked alongside the company’s flagship SE range.

Miles Roberts, PMC’s export director comments, “Japan is a rapidly developing market, there is a resurgence in interest around high-end audio and CSR is a wonderful addition to the PMC distribution network to tap into that growth.” He adds, “And with both companies celebrating their 25th anniversary this year it is a fantastic time to join forces.”

Mr Norinaga Nakazawa, president, owner and founder of CSR says, “It is an honour for CSR to be working with such a world recognised brand  as PMC, our team here is very excited about the future possibilities for success and we are already seeing an increase in interest to both brands since the announcement of the partnership”.

Mr Naoyuki Sensui, director general manager of the sales department adds, “CSR feels very strongly that the synergy between our two brands will result in a wonderful collaboration with success for both companies in the Japanese audiophile market.”
