With IP at the heart of broadcasting’s future, codecs are increasingly the gateways of content assimilation and distribution
United Kingdom manufacturer Prism Sound has appointed pro audio specialist ChandraCom as its exclusive distributor for Indonesia. ChandraCom will be responsible for the entire range of analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters and audio interfaces.
Based in Jakarta, ChandraCom was established in 1997 by Setiadi Chandra, and now services the recording, broadcast and HiFi markets. Its customers include sound engineers, producers, DJs and musicians, along with record labels, TV stations and educational institutions. The company also represents other pro audio brands including SSL, Sennheiser/Neumann, Barefoot Sound, AMS Neve, Steinberg, Native Instruments and Arturia.
ChandraCom explains that it’s going to introduce Prism Sound’s products to the local market with its in-house demo facilities and seminar room.
“Some Indonesian sound engineers have heard about Prism Sound, but only a few have experienced Prism Sound’s high quality audio,” Chandra explained. “It is our intention to make all local recording professionals aware of the brand and we will be conducting regular demos at our facility and making demo units available to key customers.”
Chandra adds that he was persuaded to include Prism Sound to his roster after testing a Lyra 2 audio interface. Based on Prism Sound’s Orpheus interface, Lyra and Lyra 2 units allow music recording professionals to access the power and sophistication of the Orpheus audio path and clock circuitry, but in a smaller package and lower price point.
“We are very excited to be representing the range, especially the new DREAM ADA-128 that will be available soon,” said Chandra. “These products are a great match for our existing roster and we are proud and happy to be part of the Prism Sound family,” he said.
“We are delighted to have a company like ChandraCom as our partner in Indonesia,” said Mark Evans, Prism Sound’s sales director. “With over 20 years’ experience in the pro audio business, it is apparent that they really know and understand the needs of their customers. We are confident that, with the help of Setiadi and his team, Prism Sound conversion will soon be available in all of the top Indonesian audio facilities.”
