Eagan, Minn. — Capitol has signed a distribution agreement to carry Sony Electronics’ premium home products to select A/V specialty dealers and custom integrators, including its 4K Ultra HD TVs and projectors; ES AVRs and high-res audio products, and a host of compatible components to create the ideal home entertainment system.
“Sony is a brand that’s always in high demand, and their new products — particularly on the high-performance end — are some of the most popular in the business,” said Curt Hayes, Capitol’s president/chief financial officer. “We’re honored to have been selected as a Sony distributor, as it further increases the depth and quality of the solutions we can offer our customers.”
Frank Sterns, Sony’s VP of custom integration, said Capitol provides “superb customer service, dealer support and product training. Their customer-focused approach fits perfectly with Sony’s new A/V specialty/CI strategy which is committed to bringing the premium home experience of 4k UHD TV and high-resolution audio to consumers through select specialty retailers and custom integration professionals.”
Sony’s ES (Elevated Standard) line of high-performance, installation-friendly home A/V products are supported by industry-leading warranties, 60-day advanced exchange for installers and a dedicated ES Technical Support Hotline, said Capitol.
In the home-theater category, Capitol now carries Sony’s new 4K home-theater ES projector with 4K ARC-F lens. Integrators can bundle that with a Sony Wi-Fi streaming Blu-ray player with 4K up-scaling and a new HD soundbar and wireless subwoofer featuring 7.1 surround sound to create a truly state-of-the-art system, said Capitol.
On the home audio front, there is a wide range of new models, including Sony’s new ES high-res integrated two-channel amplifier, and a 7.2-channel high-res Wi-Fi network AVR.
