Over 50 Years of Innovation
Founded in by John Bower in the workshop of his electronics shop in Worthing, West Sussex, the firm has long been synonymous with sonically impressive, design-led speakers. Something that has been reviewed by What Hi-Fi? You'll find a full-fat, star-rated review attached to each product in this comprehensive list. Now, think about the type of speaker that's right for you. Floorstanders require a fair bit of space in which to operate, so might be better suited to bigger rooms, while bookshelf speakers aka standmounts can either be mounted on a stand or fixed to a wall using brackets, so are potentially more versatile. Then, there's the technology. You'll find it's used across all of the speakers on this list. Finally, you'll need to turn your mind to the topic of coin. They're an energetic and enthusiastic listen too, with great pace, precision and an entertaining grasp of rhythms. There's loads of detail to feast on, and dynamics still reach far and wide even at low volumes.
Other sub-brands were 'John Bowers' for the Active One loudspeaker and preamp and 'Rock Solid' for a lifestyle speaker range. In the company opened a dedicated, purpose-built research centre titled 'SRE' or 'Steyning Research Establishment' in Steyning , about 10 miles from Worthing. The buildings were fit for audio-related work since they were previously used by SME , the English tonearm designer who felt the downturn in tonearm sales due to the introduction of the new digital media CD. SRE housed a prototype shop and listening rooms, ranging from semi-anechoic to typical small living rooms. Approximately twenty staff support the research facility.
