Hi-fi enthusiasts are in for a treat at this month's Bristol Sound & Vision Show, running from February 26th-28th.
Three – yes three – speaker manufacturers have exclusive launches lined up for the show.
Focal's £70,000 Stella Utopia EM speakers will make their world debut. If they're anything like as impressive as the £110,000 Focal Grand Utopias, they'll be well worth a look (and listen).
Rival French speaker manufacturer Cabasse will meanwhile demo its new Ambrose 3 loudspeaker, designed for use in home cinema systems.
Designed as a dedicated left, centre, right and surround channel speaker, the Ambrose 3 has two 17cm Duocell woofers, positioned either side of the BC13 coaxial driver unit in a d'Appolito arrangement.
More after the break
However, the French won't be stealing all the limelight. British speaker company PMC will showcase its wafer-art for the wafer1 and wafer2 slim on-wall speakers.
Wafer-art allows for the customisation of any wafer speaker with a range of library or user-supplied images that can be printed on the speaker grilles. Options range from solid colours to high-resolution pictures.
