AKG announced the acquisition of Crown's worldwide distribution rights, expanding AKG distributors' selection of microphones.

Crown, a Harman International, specializes in manufacturing amplifiers, microphones, and system control products for worldwide audio markets.

"Crown microphones are top-of-the-line products that are very well known for their outstanding performance," said Thomas Stubics, product manager for recording and broadcast at AKG, in a statement. "The diversity of the Crown microphone line is the perfect match for AKG' as a source of industry-leading products.

"The new partnership of AKG and Crown is a logical next step that will benefit the customers and business partners for AKG and Crown microphones," Stubics adds. "AKG has invested a large amount of time and money into its distribution infrastructure, and the partnership with Crown will solidify our global distribution strategy."

Harman International acquired AKG in 1993 and purchased Crown in 2000 in order to gain a stronger foothold in the microphone market.
