The need for us to shift with the changing market dynamic is essential if we are to continue to offer a relevant product selection and service to the consumer.” He continues, “BBG’s decision to apply for membership and its diverse portfolio of products, which span hi-fi, AV and custom, demonstrates how much importance this leading distributor puts on helping the industry to adapt and grow.
