Music + Innovation = Refuge

The Two Friends – who for decades shared experiences in the high-performance consumer audio industry but found it lacking in a few key areas.

The Two Friends – Rich and Jon – ​became the Two Founders. They had new ideas for how to creatively organize, distribute, and market luxury audio brands for an industry which is reluctant to make necessary changes and adapt to a new consumer and the new way consumers buy.

Monarch Systems Distribution has taken the two founders’ combined years of experience and have selected the very finest audio companies for your home or office, fused with the very best customer support. The end results are products our partners can count on and support they can rely on.
