DIEST, Belgium – HARMAN Professional is announcing that its Benelux distributor, AudioXL, has been named the exclusive distributor of the JBL Intellivox and AXYS loudspeaker products for the Benelux region. In October 2013, HARMAN acquired Duran Audio and its flagship Intellivox and AXYX lines, before incorporating them into the JBL product lineup.

“We are very excited about having the Intellivox and AXYS products as part of the JBL portfolio,” explained William van Druten, General Manager at AudioXL. “Intellivox was the first digitally steerable array on the market and the engineers from Duran Audio are widely regarded as the pioneers of and the authority on this technology. Intellivox is a great solution for delivering clear and intelligible speech in difficult acoustic environments and there are already many high-profile applications of the products around the world. This, combined with AudioXL’s experienced and skilled team and the wider portfolio of HARMAN products, is a recipe for success. I am sure we can continue to grow the market for the product and deliver fantastic solutions for many more projects.”

In recent years, Intellivox has become the preferred loudspeaker solution for major railway stations in Holland. Intellivox has not only been chosen for its ability to deliver the ultimate intelligibility but also for its subjective sound quality and natural sound reproduction. Stations now installed with Intellivox include: Den Haag, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Eindhoven.

The product has also enjoyed great success in the worship and AV markets. The AXYS range is also widely used by many rental companies in the region and is known for delivering transparent sound reproduction even at high sound pressure levels.  

“This new relationship with AudioXL presents some really exciting opportunities,” Nick Screen, HARMAN Sales Director – Duran Audio Products. “With Intellivox it has always been about selling solutions, but it was a niche solution for intelligibility and many clients want a complete audio system. The HARMAN acquisition and the partnership with AudioXL means that we can now offer a complete HARMAN-based sound system solution that delivers Intellivox-quality intelligibility. Combine this with AudioXL’s team and large customer base and you have a winning formula.”
