Isn't Tannoy about to close?  :(  Not that it makes any difference to the quality of their speakers, I am just sad to see another great British brand go away.

B&W got purchased by a Silicon Valley start-up. Expect to see more thermostats with stereo speakers built in.
No, Tannoy is not about to close.  They closed their factory in Scotland(?) as they've moved more production to China, which is a shame.  It's because most of us in the West seem to have no reservations about propping up nasty dictators as long as we can save some coin, and it's now to a point that if you want electronics you almost have no choice.
I heard some of the new Tannoys with Cary 211fe amps. Astoundingly good. I would much rather keep some blue collar Scots at work than line the pockets of some communist, money laundering billionaires so they can buy more rhino horn and donkey fur. Just my opinion.
