1. No ad-hominem
2. No spamming or shilling
Came across a length of their K120 speaker cable today in my spares (crap) box- remember buying it in a hifi shop just off Donegal square Belfast late 80s early 90s-
I challenge you all to name them. No new company could survive back then unless they went export. Dealers were corrupt, magazines were corrupt, reviewers were corrupt. AND corruption doesn't mean money in the pocket, there were the being part of the gang, or as one famous reviewer told me, "if I didn't own and review with Linn and Naim I wouldn't have got any work". "if I had made anything better than them I wouldn't have been given any credibility, so work would have dried up".
I still think people don't understand how screwed and corrupt our hobby was.
I try to look for and support the non corporate companies, this is similar in cycling, a non hifi brand that also has similar issues with the biggies

Not my style of bike (I like old steel!) but lovely to read about the company. I hope that they continue to thrive.
Similar story to be told about beer, thankfully small concerns have thrived over the last few years and the customer gets more choice/better product as a result.
