Azione Unlimited Given Preferred Access to Steinway’s New Spirio High-Resolution Player Piano
Chester Springs, PA (July 27, 2017) Azione Unlimited (AU), the education and buying group for custom installers and home technology professionals, and Steinway & Sons announced the formation of a new partnership. Through the new agreement, Azione Unlimited dealer members have preferred access to Steinway Spirio, the world’s finest high-resolution player piano.
