What Hi-Fi? Awards 2021: First Winners Announced 4th October!
Really, please share images as if that is the case they really have dropped the ballUnfortunately they've got their details wrong. The 600 series came out in September 1993. I've got the receipts and brochure from 1993.
Bit embarrassing to release your 25th anniversary special on the 27th anniversary.
Don’t know on which planet you’ve been living in, but B&W and Arcam and a host of others have been manufacturing in China for the best part of 2 decades. Even Naim do it for their cheaper products now.Bowers and Wilkens now owned by EVA Automation since 2016, a company that has never released a product.
Was disappointed their highest-end 2000 watt subwoofer that came. out in 2017 for near $5000, now made in China, where B&W previously made their top sub in the U.K. No cherry either.
I guess B&W tried to cut cost and make "somewhat" more affordable lines in China, and the higher-end lines in the U.K. But now since selling the company are all speakers soon coming from China as the highest-end Subs are? Would be disappointing to see this strategy.
Marantz and countless other U.S. companies made the same mistake in the late seventies, it did not turn out well with many brands failing in the 1980s.
You can only ride that "Brand Cache" so long.
