Our history starts in 1979 where we manufactured speakers for a North American speaker brand for distribution in the New Zealand and Australian markets. Following this in 1983 we were appointed as the sole distributor for Yamaha Hi Fi products and to this day we are proud to continue to represent them in the New Zealand market. During this time we have expanded our portfolio to include market-leading brands that service Car Audio, Custom Installation and other Hi Fi and Home Theatre products.
Sound Group will be showcasing the launch of the the latest update to the Music Cast Family with Alexa Control by Amazon. Yamaha is ramping up integration of Amazon Alexa with more than 40 of the company's MusicCast wireless multiroom products through an Alexa skill, making it faster and easier for audio enthusiasts to control their home entertainment experience. "Playing music throughout the home simply by speaking a few words is truly remarkable," said Robert Goedken, general manager, AV division, Yamaha Corporation of America. "And when the source of that music comes from a real piano, it's like magic. We're excited that our customers will be able to experience this in their homes next month. In the coming months, we'll be taking Alexa integration even further, to provide a deeper, more seamless experience. We're just getting started
