Hi-Fi World
April 2014
In This Issue... Bentley, Tannoy and CDs Make A Comeback
Editorial By Noel Keywood


In This Issue... By Noel Keywood Hi-Fi World April 2014  If you remember Bentley as a brand slowly fading away into obscurity, looking outdated in a modern world, then you may be interested to know that just as Bentley has made a seemingly miraculous comeback, so too have Tannoy's loudspeaker equivalent, the Prestige Range. We see less of Prestige in the UK than Bentley; few of us have homes or wallets large enough to accommodate them – Prestiges that is! But they sell ever better the further East you go, Tannoy recently told me.

The revival of Prestige, like the revival of Bentley, brings with it interest in Tannoy's other, more modern-looking loudspeakers and the new DC10A featured in this issue is an outstanding example – see page 10. Like a Bentley it harks back to its roots, yet underneath a sleek modern exterior lies advanced engineering. Far from being sized down, the DC10A is sized up, to benefit from sheer cabinet volume – and that means great bass. I hope you enjoy reading about it.

Hi-Fi World readers are always right (I mean it!) and we have had many complaints about 'ignoring CD', which I accept have substance. The whole topic of digital, including a new 'd' word – downloads – in truth stirs argument. I hope our feature on CD – see page 23 – makes the situation a little clearer. Coincidentally, a new breed of super CD player is appearing. We are making every effort to get them in for review!

And finally, going back to the topic of ‘old values, new technology' we have in for review a brand new Sugden Single-Ended transistor power amplifier (with matching preamp). Transistor SEs are very rare beasts and I know why: we built one at Hi-Fi World many moons ago and it streamed heat, whilst at the same time sounding fabulous. Sugden have deep experience with all this however, like few others, and their new FPA-4 power amplifier is a startling new product. Don't miss the next issue where a review will almost certainly appear – if we don't all get washed away in this winter's deluge beforehand.
