I was particularly fond of Brenell, as I had a rare Series 510,I would be inclined to suggest that Ferrograph were taken to the cleaners by a certain Swiss manufacturer.
And Brennell were simply taken to the cleaners…
My first proper hi-fi speakers, I really liked them, changed them for a pair of tanoys that were crap, that's when all the problems started. Wish is kept them in retrospect.What does this have to do with British HiFi? Well, I run that witch's brew together with a pair of old British JPW P1. Yummy budget speakers. Now refoamed.
Poor JPW P1 who gets that signal. He he.
You can always buy a used pairs of JPW P1.My first proper hi-fi speakers, I really liked them, changed them for a pair of tanoys that were crap, that's when all the problems started. Wish is kept them in retrospect.
You British boys. You have lots to be proud of in your country but ... well ..
This is a review and detailed measurements of the Rega IO stereo integrated amplifier with phono input. It is on kind loan from a member and costs US $649 on Amazon including Prime shipping. It is designed and built in UK and price there seems much more reasonable (379 pounds). The front...audiosciencereview.com
Zeppzeppzepp says in that thread:
Rega is a vinyl player company, not expert for amplifier for sure.
A Swedish proverb:
Shoemaker, stay by your profession
.... means that you should not invent something new, but stick to the task you have been given or in the areas you master.
Are you right in that we add Scottis and Wales i the thread.Hi All,
My friends, don't forget England isn't Britain! Linn is Scottish and Nytech and ION were made in Wales!
One interesting (and possibly unique) aspect of British Hi-Fi was that the upgrade path for many manufacturers was to 'go active', often with third party speakers. Nytech, Linn, Naim and Meridian even formed the "Active Loudspeaker Standards Organisation" to facilitate this. You would see systems with Naim, Nytech or ION electronics (including the electronic crossovers) and speakers from Linn, Spendor, Royd, ARC etc. It's also a reminder that an active system doesn't mean "all in one speaker + amp".
Looks like it's still a thing.

The rum certainly helped but the main difference was the British did a lot of gun drill and the French and Spanish didn't. Result was the British ships had three to four times the rate of fire which tended to be conclusive in every engagement.Yeh, well, maybe, but what about chips.
And what about the rum? I mean when it comes to ruling the waves, the Royal Navy rum rations probably had more to do with it.
Sure, but the speakers?! What's that? The resonances should be terrible with thin goods. ...Or how they are constructed.Maybe it's just ceramic on the outer layer and other material in the urns?^

I really hate adverts that use words incorrectly.
One can't have something very unique!! It's either unique or it isn't. There are no degrees of uniqueness.
Very rare possibly, very unique absolutely not.
Similarly, one of the only....It's either the only, or it's one of the few. It can't be one of the only!!!

Well, indisputably, Fuller's London Pride is the best beer in the World! At least no controversy there.How to start a fight in a British thread. You have the second best beers, I've done the research, extensively. You are miles ahead with the fries, no one else is close.
Had a pair of JPW P1 for many years loved them to bits, unfortunately that describes what happened to the foam surrounds. Think the cabinets were made by prisoners in Dartmoor prison.Here I fiddle with some vintage Swedish Hifi. Just some goofy soldering and sound experimentation. Most waffle from my part in that thread, but still.

An old amplifier Luxor 7082 A. I connected a high to low level converter on the speaker outputs, to be able to connect an active subwoofer. Connected in parallel, together with the cables to the speakers. The converter: My friend said: why not take the signal directly from the pre amp section...audiosciencereview.com
Sadly, I no longer believe this is so. Over the past few years, both London Pride & ESB have lost something of their magic; the 'fruity' flavour is considerably diminished. I have reason to believe that this is largely down to something about the yeast having changed, but neither my palate nor knowledge of the brewing process are sufficient to offer further explanation.indisputably, Fuller's London Pride is the best beer in the World!
Considering Pride is brewed using London water, the fact it still tastes good is a tribute to Fullers whoever owns the brewery in Chiswick. When living a few miles from Chiswick we couldn’t even make tea using tap water. We had a collection of 5 litre bottles in the boot of the car, when we drove out of London filling them was a priority.Sadly, I no longer believe this is so.

The Fullers brand (including the Griffin Brewery in Chiswick) was sold to Asahi in 2019.
