People think that Onkyo are a new company, but in reality, they have been around for over 60 years. However, the brand has never achieved the market penetration it deserves, because some of Onkyo's previous UK distributors seem to have taken the view that a prestige brand always has to have a sky high price tag to go with it.
We've sold Onkyo for 20 years and have often felt that if the company could just get its distribution sorted, it would easily be able to compete against all the other brands. And that is exactly what happened a few years ago, when a surprise change of distributor resulted in a flood of brilliant new models coming into the UK, at incredibly competitive prices. The rest, as they say....is history! For two years on the trot, Onkyo has topped the Home Cinema charts - last year an astonishing 30% of all Home Cinema amps sold in the UK were Onkyos. That's an incredible achievement - if the Onkyo brand wasn't that well known before, it certainly is now!
