There was time not too long ago when if you bought a pair of hi-fi speakers you almost certainly bought British. Unfortunately many of the British speaker makers have scaled down their activities over the last few years and cheap, but often good quality speakers from the Far East, Europe and America, have mopped up some of their market share.
So it is good to see that there are still British speaker companies doing interesting things. Like Ferguson Hill, which this week announced the arrival of two new products – a home theatre system and a mid-sized version of the company’s signature horn shaped speaker unit.
The FH009 Home Theatre set up pairs a class A integrated amp that is compatible with any audio out enabled device. It comes with horn speakers that can be wall mounted or free-standing and are made from transparent acyclic. It will sell for around £800.
The FH010 is a cut down version of Ferguson Hill’s FH001 high end speaker system. It comprises four speakers (two bass speakers and two mid-high frequency horn speakers) and can be used with music servers, hi-fi systems and TVs.
It will be on sale soon and is priced at £6000.
