    Is it the reincarnation of Kralk audio?
    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Yes it is Alan and Marco. Good news indeed i think when you consider the mess Alan Clark had to sort out and basically start again from scratch. The new designs look fantastic. I have been looking for a pair of speakers for months and i now have a pair of Progmeister specials on order from Alan. I can't wait to take delivery of them.
