The Clarity Alliance, the UK hi-fi industry’s trade body, welcomes the addition of two new manufacturers to its continually growing number of members.
After a number of years absence from the UK, many who remember the brand for its very well respected loudspeakers and turntables will welcome the return of Acoustic Research. The reintroduction of this famous name brings with it cutting edge products such as portable high-resolution music players and a USB DAC with headphone amplifier. Using the Sound & Vision Show in Bristol to re-launch the brand, the new products were heralded by the show visitors and media alike.
Mitchell and Johnson is another comeback, set up by the team responsible for the reintroduction of the Sansui brand into the UK in late 2011. Paul Mitchell and Dave Johnson have a long track record in the consumer electronics industry, having worked for major manufacturers and retailers in the UK and USA. A long time hi-fi enthusiast and semi-professional musician, Mitchell is responsible for the product and sales functions of the business, while Johnson brings with him considerable expertise in commercial operations management and finance. The new brand builds on the award winning products introduced under the Sansui name, while also having undertaken a period of intensive product development to enable the unveiling of new and class leading components covering the amplifier, streamer, DAB and CD categories.
Clarity continues to look for more manufacturers to join the Alliance, enhancing the overall diversity of the membership and the benefits this ultimately brings to consumers.
