HOLDEN, MA (July 22, 2019) – Vinnie Rossi has officially transitioned from direct sales to a dealer network in the USA and is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Sossa of Well Pleased Audio Vida as the companyʼs sales representative for North America, effective July 22, 2019.
Commenting on the new partnership, Rossi said, “Over the last five years, Mark has demonstrated a tremendous amount of energy and enthusiasm towards the brands that he represents - at various trade shows and working with a strong and growing dealer network that he has established and maintained. His good character, approachability, and long-term vision are exactly what I have been looking for to make the switch from direct sales to a vibrant dealer network, exclusively. We are looking forward to working together.”
Sossa adds, “I have been keenly watching Vinnie Rossiʼs products evolve over the last 15 years. He continues to reach higher levels of performance with every product, and each one delivers an innovative design approach, top performance in its price class, and high value. They also garner numerous awards from the press, glowing coverage at trade shows, and a loyal following from his customers. As his company continues to grow, I am excited to be part of his team and bring his designs to a much larger audience.”
Both companies will be teaming up this year at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (September), as well as Captial Audio Fest and the New York Audio Show (November). Vinnie Rossi plans to show his upcoming L2 Integrated Amplifier at all three shows, and interested dealers are encouraged to visit Vinnie Rossi and Mark Sossa in person for a remarkable demo!

The Vinnie Rossi website has been refreshed. Check it out: www.vinnierossi.com 3)
The upcoming (September 2019) L2 Integrated Amplifier and L2 'Signature Edition' Integrated Amplifier
models have been announced and are live on our website:https://www.vinnierossi.com/l2-integrated-amplifier-l2i/
The following news has been posted on the LIO page:https://www.vinnierossi.com/lio-audio-component/
After nearly 5 years of production, LIO will be discontinued by the end of summer 2019.
There are a handful of reasons that have prompted us to make this difficult decision, but the two most significant are:
1) LIO has always been priced and sold as a ‘factory-direct’ product, but now Vinnie Rossi has officially switched from direct sales to a dealer network.
2) Product demand for LIO has steadily become slower, yet the cost of parts to make LIO has increased (especially in smaller production quantities).
Rest assured, we will still continue to offer LIO modules, warranty service and support to all of our LIO customers going forward.
We are also offering our LIO customers generous trade-up credit towards our new L2 components until the end of 2019. If you are interested, please contact us to inquire.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support!
We're almost out of stock of LIO parts and enclosures, but have stock of modules. As mentioned above, will continue to support modules and LIO upgrades (including the L2 Phonostage and L2 DAC are both upgrade options for LIO customers).
And we'll be getting in LIO trade-in units, so if you are interested, please contact me directly via email.
