There are a lot of great UK HI-FI manufactories, like ATC, B&W, etc. Do they design speakers in UK and make them in other countries? Which speakers are made in UK?
Thanks very much!
just like a options in Lexus 400.........Too many to list!.
KEF are the obvious ones. Kent electric and foundry, i think.
Kent Engineering & Foundry, actually, and ever so slightly owned by Hong Kong-based Gold Peak!
Audio Editor, Gramophone
Hyde Park, London! Speakers Corner. Though, not usually made in the UK. D'Oh!

Good Lord, the drugs do work...
They should have changed the name on the move to Hong Kong. Or renamed a region, in Hong Kong, Kent.
Well, there is a part of Shenzhen that is forever Wharfedale...
Thats rater sweet. PMC are all out English aren't they?
I think the KEF Reference series is still made in the UK.
Neat acoustics,are made in the UK,so are Revolver.Harbeth,Spendor,all top notch speakers.
Yeb...Neat is properbly one of the best UK base company around (I went there, near Darlington) Bob is a real nice guy and have so much time explaining all different type of cross overs and synergy work to me. Everything is build in uk and even the owner is working in the factory floor.....great day out.
Sound or marketing?hahaha.
The new 6series are now made in China though,and the woodwork is Scandinavian sourced.
Frankly, with most of the younger generation choosing office based professions rather than professions that require skills with their hands, it is not inconceivable that the quality of speakers made in China would surpass those made in the UK...if not now, certainly in the not too distant future.

That may be the case but even Non-English person like me still would like to see the traditioanl brands manufacture here in UK. What happen to Linn early on in the year was very sad and it look like more and more brithish brands will get in similar sort of problem.
