Audio and Hi Fidelity Loudspeakers have taken twists and turns over the years, to a point now where miniturized components like IPod accessories and suitcase sized home theater systems are considered Hi Fidelity. Integration of the amplifier into the loudspeaker is almost the norm now; and amp components like the B&O ICE series makes this possible and at a high performance level. Of course, this isn't a new idea. Almost nothing is... Almost.
The current status of amplifiers and audio sources, as well as driver and materials technology together with creative loudspeaker designers, beat together to produce the State of the Art.
But it's really big, sort of complicated to integrate into the home, and kind of expensive (but not insanely so). Trying to get some of this performance in a more convenient package is what Pres Speakers does, and has attempted to do, in our Audio products. Here are some of our efforts over the years.
The longer a great loudspeaker has been out there working , the more it deserves a 'fix-up' when some of the moving parts need replacing. These speakers have acquired 'Soul'. There is nothing more satisfying than rebuilding 'Soul' Speakers, and making them better than new.
