Frontline Test Equipment, Inc. is pleased to announce a sales and marketing partnership with Audio Precision, the recognized standard in audio test, to distribute Audio Precision's APx Series Bluetooth® audio analyzer in North America.

Audio Precision's built-in Bluetooth radio and Bluetooth stack allows comprehensive audio test over Bluetooth wireless technology, with the speed and reliability that has made AP the trusted reference for audio engineers since 1984. With the addition of integrated PESQ measurements, integrated HDMI, and two to 16 channels of low noise analog, APx is the premier solution for audio testing in the Smartphone, tablet, hands free, VoIP, automotive and PC industries. The APx Bluetooth audio analyzer also includes a special link key allowing easy sharing of data with a Bluetooth packet sniffer such as Frontline's leading ComProbe® BPA® 500 Dual Mode Bluetooth Protocol Analyzer.

Under the terms of the joint marketing agreement, Frontline will augment AP's existing US sales channel with a license to market and distribute Audio Precision's APx audio analyzers to Frontline's US customer base. US customers who buy from Frontline will still enjoy free tech support for life from AP and AP's team of field application engineers are still available for pre- and post- sale support. In other countries, Audio Precision's existing network of distributors is still the first point of contact for customer questions, demos and post-sales support.

“Frontline knows everyone in Bluetooth. Period,” explains Tom Williams, VP of Sales and Marketing at Audio Precision. “Now they have an answer for their customers asking about audio quality, and we have a trusted partner who is deeply imbedded in the Bluetooth ecosphere. Everyone benefits.” “AP's Bluetooth audio analyzer is the perfect complement to our protocol analyzer”, says Frontline president David Bean. “Our customers have been asking for years ‘what about audio' and now we can give them the tools they need to test their audio quality easily, objectively, and definitively.”
