SnapAV Acquires Autonomic

24 Jan, 2017

Autonomic brings music streaming and expanded multi-room audio to the SnapAV line. 

SnapAV has added Autonomic to its line of audio equipment. The 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/192kHz. 

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.”
