“The orator illuminated adult a boardroom.”

Another perspective of a shop

He describes his business as “anybody who likes audio – examination Netflix, listening to Spotify, who wants something a bit opposite that isn’t only your black box we can get from John Lewis.

“And people who wish to support a British association – not only going to Chinese or American/Japanese brands. We get a lot of loyalty.”

Likens his code to Mercedes and BMW – “we’re not Ferrari, where we are a bit some-more German potency designed in Yorkshire.

“We’re friendly, we’re quirky, we’re different.”

A lot of sound from a small speaker

“We were anticipating with a products we’ve got, there were a lot of people pre-lockdown that wanted to come in store and try a equipment.
