Parts Express Announces Partnership With Linkplay Technology For Turnkey Wifi Audio Solutions Distribution

June 22 2017, 03:00
Parts Express, the well-established source for audio and electronic parts and components, announced a new distribution partnership with Linkplay Technology, a leading WiFi audio solution provider and the first audio platform approved for integration with Alexa Voice Services (AVS). The Springboro, OH, company will be able to support OEM/ODM projects in the United States and Canada.

As part of this partnership with Linkplay Technology, Parts Express will provide consulting, design and integration expertise to audio and electronic manufacturers and engineers who are interested in incorporating Linkplay’s patented turnkey WiFi multi-room audio solutions, which includes hardware and software packages. In order to meet the demand for Linkplay integration, Parts Express has become the authorized distributor for customers in the U.S. and Canada who are looking to add Linkplay’s WiFi and AVS solution to their OEM/ODM projects in quantities of 5,000 units or less.

Growing demand for voice control in the wireless speaker market is a hot topic considering “The number of active U.S. users will more than double for the devices this year, to 35.6 million,” according to eMarketer, who also went on to state AVS devices “will claim a 70.6 percent share of the U.S. market.” Linkplay’s smart audio WiFi solution integrates with Alexa Voice Service, allowing manufacturers to incorporate AVS into their products at a cost-effective price point with less barriers for market entry.

Parts Express, headquartered in Springboro, Ohio, has provided audio and electronic parts and accessories to the retail, commercial and manufacturing channels since their first catalog release in 1986. More than 1 million customers have ordered from Parts Express for their projects ranging from DIY speaker building and repair to major brand product releases incorporating audio components manufactured by Parts Express.
