Is AMX Is Trying to Buy SpinetiX?

Although no one from either company will confirm any details on the record, we have sources that tell us AMX and SpinetiX are in talks about a buy-out or investment. SpinetiX, you may recall, manufacturers a non-PC-based media player, the HMP100, which won our Digital Signage CHAMPS Award for Best non-PC media player back in 2009 and, of course, AMX is a HomeAV and ProAV control system manufacturer.

Last month, AMX and SpinetiX announced a collaboration to cooperatively build and market a so-called “next-generation” DS media player to be launched in 2011. But, we believe this collaboration may morph into a merger — unless someone else scoops up SpinetiX before AMX does.

Dave: Nice product but these guys are not great marketers. A deal like this would definitely up their visibility.
