DPA appoints Russian distributor

OKNO-AUDIO is DPA Microphones’ new distribution partner for Russia.

Founded in 2012, OKNO-AUDIO is part of leading Russian broadcast systems integration company OKNO-TV, and is also the distributor for a number of other major audio brands, such as Behringer, Harman Professional, Lab Gruppen, Mogami, Tannoy, and, most recently, PreSonus.

The firm will be responsible for the entire DPA range, including the d:facto vocal microphone and d:fine 66 and 88 miniature headset mics.

"The Russian market is growing rapidly and carries enormous potential for DPA. To maximise this, we need a strong distribution partner with an established presence in the live sound, broadcast and installation markets," said Michael Trolle, DPA’s EMEA area sales manager. "OKNO-AUDIO fits this brief perfectly."

Vladislav Manaenkov, co-founder and executive director at OKNO-AUDIO, added: "By being part of OKNO-TV, which is the greatest TV and broadcast integrator in the Russian Federation, we have no doubt that the use of DPA microphones in this field will be valuable and up-to-date.

"We are proud to be an integral part of the DPA international team and will do our utmost for the brand’s development in all spheres of the Russian professional market."
