High-end Hi-Fi specialist Node Audio has appointed DavidHugh (HeXu) as its official Chinese distributor. Based in both Shanghai and Cambridge, DavidHugh is uniquely placed to co-ordinate with fellow Cambridge-based Node Audio in their introduction to the Chinese market. Node’s Hylixa speakers officially launched at the Design Shanghai exhibition November 26.

But the partnership isn’t just about geographic proximity, says the company. DavidHugh share the belief that high-end audio shouldn’t be the preserve of HiFi enthusiasts, and are well positioned to bring Node’s sculptural loudspeakers to a wider market.

“By exploiting advanced manufacturing technologies we’ve created products with acoustics and aesthetics in harmony, which we know will resonate with a broader Chinese market. By partnering with DavidHugh, we’re able to introduce our Hylixa loudspeakers into the Chinese high-end HiFi sector and beyond,” says Node’s director Ashley May.

DavidHugh’s team have spent time at Node’s Cambridge headquarters to better understand the advanced engineering in its ‘Helical Bass’ enclosure, experiencing the laser-based 3D printing system used to create the speakers at first hand, and witnessing how each speaker is carefully assembled to the clients’ bespoke finish.

Dr David Wickett, DavidHugh’s Director comments: “We are delighted to partner with Node Audio and to introduce their remarkable Hylixa speakers to the Chinese market. Node Audio and DavidHugh have a lot in common. Our products are great examples of what we believe to be uniquely British: research-based design incorporating a spirit of inventiveness, convergence, advanced engineering and beauty. We very much look forward to growing the Chinese market together.”

Following the launch, clients will be able to experience Hylixa at the DavidHugh experience lab, located in the Yonda Bentley showroom in the Pudong district in Shanghai.
