25 years…

This is our 25th year of making audio products, we can’t believe it’s been so long – I guess time flies when you’re having fun!

From the Paintpot preamp to our SoundBucket speakers, it’s been a journey so we’d like to raise a glass to us, and to you, our customers who’ve made all this possible, Thank you πŸ™‚
