A major step forward in Hi-Fi mains distribution.
15 years ago we launched our iconic PowerBlock™. It's difficult to imagine now but at the time this was a major step in the world of Hi-Fi as such things were hard to find back then.

Readers of my column in Connected magazine will know that over the last eighteen months I have been discovering recordings from the 'Golden Age of stereo' dating back to the 1950s and 1960s.
