  1. This item has been withdrawn from sale or relisted.
  2. Launching to the public for the first time at Munich’s High End Show in Germany later this month is their latest creation, the Resolution, a floor standing speaker within their ‘Geometry Series’. View the full article
  3. I reckon at the time, perhaps, the medical equipment business would have been absolutely thriving? Let's face it, even in the golden era - HiFi market vs. Medical Equipment (and actually I think they had some military contracts too) .... not hard to figure out.
  4. They certainly didn't fail. (I haven't read that link) but IIRC, the company was also heavily involved in the medical equipment industry. The HiFi products were a side business. After being very successful with the medical side, they were purchased by another medical company who had zero interest in the HiFi side. It was just "shelved". Kudos to Longwood Audio for resurrecting the brand. And from what I've seen, not only will they be back, but they will be bigger, stronger and more revolutionary than ever.
  5. The great brands have their corporate ear close to the action delivering exactly what consumers want, when they want it. View the full article
  6. Yet another thread that has become an ME tribute. It is sooooo tiring.
  7. Munich's High End Show is without doubt the highlight of the show calendar each year. 2017's event had an even larger International focus and high caliber of visitors. Read on for our full photo gallery. View the full article

  10. There were turntables aplenty at this year’s Munich High End show. There’s no doubt, the vinyl ship has far from sailed yet, at least the second time around. View the full article
  11. There’s just something about Burmester. Handmade. In Germany. Luxury. Class. Prestige. Their displays at Munich’s High End Show each year are hands down, simply breathtaking, and usually span multiple rooms upstairs and stands in the halls downstairs. View the full article
  12. Great idea, we're currently dealing with an agency for a proposal for this (and other platforms)
  13. I think there are far worse examples than the one you have linked to above. This is a typical "lifestyle" image, and I imagine the Q Series range is squarely pitched at that buyer / demographic. Room acoustics, sadly, is never likely to cross this purchaser's mind - before, during or after the sale. In fact, in my experience there are very few retailers / specialists in this country who even bother stocking, let alone offering any form of acoustic treatment at any part of the purchasing process. You have to head far more higher-end or specialised / custom before room treatments comes into play. I don't agree with it at all. Even in car audio we were big on sound deadening and acoustic treatments on car interiors. Hell, as a retailer we were one of the first to essentially not sell a set of installed speakers without factoring in door treatment at very least. But, it is what it is.
  14. I reckon this would be great. A quiet Pub get together for the old timers (anyone older than me) - and I could candidly put the camera on them and ask about their HiFi memories while they go about socialising .... let's make it happen.
