SnapAV recently announced the acquisition of Autonomic Controls, a company known for high-end multi-room music servers and related products. SnapAV is both a manufacturer and distributor of A/V products, and Autonomic will join brands like SunBrite, Episode Speakers, Dragonfly Projection Systems, and Luma Surveillance in the SnapAV line.
SnapAV is now adding Autonomic to its line of audio equipment.
This acquisition combines the industry-leading music and audio services of Autonomic with SnapAV's
award-winning customer service and support for a complete solution.
"We are thrilled to add Autonomic to the SnapAV lineup," said John Heyman, SnapAV CEO. "This is a
company that focuses on the custom channel and has shown continuous expertise in the media
streaming category. Autonomic has the right products, people, and culture to make this deal a success
for everyone involved, including our dealers."
Autonomic products are backed by best-in-class integration with leading control systems, such as
Savant, Crestron, Control4, and URC, and incorporate more than a dozen popular music services,
including Spotify and Pandora. To provide users with the best audio possible, Autonomic supports full
High-resolution Audio (HRA) at 24-bit/192-kHz.
Autonomic CEO Michael de Nigris views SnapAV as a like-minded partner with a strong commitment to
the custom-install channel. "SnapAV has shaped the industry since their inception, and we believe our
unique product offering will be a great addition to their lineup. Our companies are a perfect cultural fit,
and because SnapAV is the top supplier in the industry, it helps expand our reach."
SnapAV has made a series of acquisitions within the last year, which have brought numerous benefits to
custom installers. It first acquired industry-leader SunBriteTV last October, and views subsequent
SunBriteTV success as a glimpse into the future of Autonomic.
"It's better to be a SunBriteTV dealer now than before we acquired them. Dealers receive a better
product, greater support, and tools that make selling easier," continued Heyman. "We have the same
plans for the Autonomic product line. If you already sell their products, this is a deal you should be
excited about. If you don't sell Autonomic today, you're going to want to start."
