BY RS STAFF PUBLISHED: JANUARY 30, 2023


Origin Acoustics has announced a new strategic partnership with Netgear. As an evolving provider of end-to-end solutions for the custom integration market, Origin Acoustics will resell and support Netgear’s CI-focused wired and wireless offerings. All models of the Netgear AV’s M4250 and M4300 lines of managed switches and five models of the Pro Wi-Fi Access Point products are now available directly from Origin Acoustics.

Beyond traditional support, Origin Acoustics will provide a support structure with a direct line to true wireless and wired network engineering staff. This is not a consumer 1-800 number — these are professional network engineers prepared to support the growing needs of the modern-day residential integration professional.


NETGEAR Switches, Access Points and Design Services:



  • M4250 Fully Managed AV Switches  — Available in a range of configurations, Netgear AV Line managed switches are designed for clean integration with traditional rack-mounted AV equipment. All power and cabling are organized in the back for a sleek and clean look and feel while the front of the unit conveniently displays port and activity status.  The M4250 switches offer multiple mounting options depending on the installation. And all Origin Acoustics M4250 models provide Power over Ethernet (PoE) for single cable power and data delivery, making installation even easier.

  • Netgear M4300 Series Switches  — Netgear’s M4300 fully managed, stackable switches are scalable to meet specific custom home network requirements. This series includes a wide breadth of products designed to handle multiple devices operating at max speeds.  All M4250 and M4300 switches feature Netgear IGMP Plu for out-of-the-box functionality and an AV-centric user interface for profile-based, per-port configuration from either a built-in GUI or the free, standalone Engage Controller application.

  • Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E Access Points  — Origin Acoustics will also be offering access point models supporting the latest Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E standards with a maximum bandwidth from AX1800 to AXE7800. All wireless access points include four years of ProSupport and four years of Netgear Insight Pro remote management. Origin Acoustics will exclusively offer the OA4WiFi6 model access point, which is one of the more affordable Wi-Fi 6 access points on the market with a purpose-built access point enclosure that integrates into Origin Acoustics 6-inch ZipClip speaker mounting system.

Origin Acoustics is offering the following models:

  • Origin Acoustics Exclusive OA4WiFI6

  • WAX618-111NAS

  • WAX628-111NAS

  • WAX638E-111NAS

Origin Acoustics will offer free ProWiFi wireless and ProAV wired design services for staff provided by Netgear. This will allow every project to start off ready to perform. With a simple submission of floor plans and additional info, Origin Acoustics customers will receive full layout and heat mapping, including vital information such as Wi-Fi channels per access point in a format presentable to the client as well as a BOM.

Netgear Insight allows installers to deploy, monitor, and manage networks anytime, anywhere. Cloud-based remote network management allows you to set up, configure, monitor, and manage select Netgear devices 24/7 365 from one central location reducing cost and time. Insight includes management of a wide selection of Netgear access points, switches (excluding M4240 and M4300), routers, and mobile hot spots for a complete network ecosystem.

At ISE 2023 Netgear and Origin Acoustics will be hosting a Networking Happy Hour on February 2, 2023, 4:00-6:00 PM at the Netgear exhibit stand #5D800.
