SPEAKERS: They should disappear, which seems impossible. The drivers are pointing straight at us!

SPEAKERS: Thoughts about auditioning them

BREAKING RANK: Who will be the first big maker to bypass the UK audio retailer network?

Michael Vronski … I don’t claim to be a futurologist. However sometimes it’s possible to read some signs and occasionally for a view of which way the commercial wind is blowing. And I mean the way that wind is blowing, but not necessarily the speed and strength of that wind.My belief is that with the […]

HARBETH: “The only speaker licenced by BBC Worldwide”?

From the Harbeth archives; the thread starts …. News of the launch of a Dr Who loudspeaker by the BBC’s highly-profitable commercial arm, begs the question as to what defines a BBC speaker these days.
