Based in both Shanghai and Cambridge, UK, DavidHugh is uniquely placed to co-ordinate with fellow Cambridge-based Node Audio in their introduction to the Chinese market.

Further to their geographic proximity, DavidHugh share the belief that high-end audio shouldn’t be the preserve of HiFi enthusiasts, and are well positioned to bring Node’s sculptural loudspeakers to a wider market, as Node’s director Ashley May explains:

Chinese High End Sector

“By exploiting advanced manufacturing technologies we’ve created products with acoustics and aesthetics in harmony, which we know will resonate with a broader Chinese market. By partnering with DavidHugh, we’re able to introduce our Hylixa loudspeakers into the Chinese high-end HiFi sector and beyond”

3D Printing

DavidHugh’s team have spent time at Node’s Cambridge headquarters understanding the advanced engineering in their ‘Helical Bass’ enclosure, experiencing the laser-based 3D printing system used to create the speakers at first hand, and witnessing how each speaker is carefully assembled to the clients’ bespoke finish.

Design Shanghai

Node’s Hylixa speakers have been launched to the Chinese market at the Design Shanghai exhibition today. Dr David Wickett, DavidHugh’s Director comments:

“We are delighted to partner with Node Audio and to introduce their remarkable Hylixa speakers to the Chinese market. Node Audio and DavidHugh have a lot in common. Our products are great examples of what we believe to be uniquely British: research-based design incorporating a spirit of inventiveness, convergence, advanced engineering and beauty. We very much look forward to growing the Chinese market together.”
