DbM has announced a new UK distribution partnership to bring the high-quality range of Audio Over IP (AoIP) products and solutions from growing European technology brand, nexgentec, to integrators working in the high-end residential and superyacht sector.

“Audio over IP is an increasingly popular option for integrators, seeking to offer a scalable, fully flexible and high-performance audio solution on their projects,” says Barry Sheldrick, Director of Sales at DbM.“

Nexgentec is the innovative brand that’s spearheading the AoIP solution and we’re delighted to partner with them and supply their exceptional range into the UK and EIRE. Alongside DbM’s dedicated integrator support services, which include our Design and Specification Service, system calibration and final commissioning, we will make audio cabling, installation, commissioning and maintenance quicker, easier and much more efficient.

Nexgentec empowers the IP network for audio distribution using its pioneering implementation and bespoke innovations, including Dante™ and AES76 technology. Renowned for their reliability and high-performance, nexgentec’s extensive range of digital signal processors, amplifiers and digital and multichannel audio-interfaces work together to distribute pristine audio signals from any source to any zone over a home or superyacht’s network infrastructure.

Patching and routing become logical functions configured in the nexgentec software, not via physical wired links. Loudspeakers can be connected via a single network cable and the nexgentec approach also eliminates the need and limitations of AV matrixes in traditional audio distribution systems whilst always retaining the integrity and quality of the audio signal in transmission. Integrators can also access and control nexgentec powered audio systems remotely, resolving any issues quickly and efficiently, without the need for an in-person visit.

Barry continues; “With nexgentec the dream of being able to deliver large scale, high-performance projects that truly integrate everything everywhere with AoIP is becoming the reality for our dealers. We’re very excited about the possibilities to push boundaries and delight clients that our partnership with nexgentec will deliver.”

Rico Vögeli, CEO of nexgentec adds, “We want to optimise solutions that work for the end client, the specialist installer and for the environment.

This is a challenging market, which demands the best and so helps us to find new and better solutions every day. We pioneered network-based audio solutions over 7 years ago.


DbM will supply the UK and EIRE markets with the full range of nexgentec products and solutions and support the brand with training to help integrators in the design, specification, installation and commissioning of an AoIP network. The nexgentec range will also be added to DbM’s complimentary Design and Specification Service, which helps integrators specify the right products and solutions for their projects.
