We’d like to announce that we will be taking part in the UK Audio Show on the 8th and 9th October at the Staverton Park Hotel in Daventry, Northampton.
As well as having a dedicated room in the Winchester Suite to demonstrate speakers such as the K Series, we will also be part of the Hall of Fame programme of events.
The Hall of Fame is a tribute to the people who have played a fundamental role in the development of the Hi-Fi industry, celebrating the lives of innovative designers and manufacturers who have made the industry what it is today.
Following the sad passing of ProAc’s Founder Stewart Tyler in June 2021, our family thought this would be a great opportunity to celebrate Stewart’s lifelong passion.
From the late 70’s to the present day, ProAc’s history and Stewart’s innovative designs, will be reflected through a special retrospective exhibition. The display will feature early speaker models, old photos, hi-fi show posters and brochures, telling the story of how ProAc started, from a small unassuming hi-fi shop to a busy manufacturing factory with global distribution.
Stewart’s daughter Zoe Tyler-Mardle will also be presenting a talk at the Hall of Fame Events Suite. She will be giving an insight into what it was like growing up surrounded by her father’s business that started as a ‘kitchen table’ manufacturing operation and how, as a young child, she got involved with the infamous ‘straw portal’ production.
