It's always nice to see women doing the hand assembly, stuffed into cramped work quarters WITHOUT any fume extractors in sight.

I don't see the appeal. I would much rather have machine placed, reflow soldered parts with AOI checked boards that have gone through proper end of line tests. Granted, there will be certain parts that have to be hand placed, but the less human interaction the better from my experience.

Still interesting to watch though.

Edit: After watching the videos through their entire length, I do see the appeal. Just like I value my hand crafted antique furniture more than my modern machine cut furniture even though they serve the same function. The modern furniture may well function better and more reliably, but lack the charm.

I guess my priorities aren't such that I would pay for the "prestige" of hand built circuit boards. I make my own and enjoy it, but do not consider them superior to even a cheap Chinese board house.

I'm glad that some do value the artisan's work, more power to the artisans and those who support them with their personal funds.

Regards,
David

Very interesting, but I don't think I even want to know what they cost. Really nice amps though.

Not sure of the specific model shown in the video, but that is the Series 3, which ranges from 599 GBP to 1099 GBP(presently about $1200-$2200 US dollars).

And somehow they can't afford a $69 fume extractor for the ladies that do all the soldering? I think thats horse****, and a great reason not to even consider buying one of their products. I'm sorry, but I watched that segment of the video and though 'if that was my mother, I'd kill someone'

Hate to sound 'preachy' but Solder processing is known to cause cancers of several varities, birth defects, and is on file with the CDC. It's also known to have caused occupational asthma.

That video just completely turned me off, thats all I can really say about it..

My bad Cal, wasn't thinking about that in all my angst. And I concur, a big pair of speakers always makes ones day!
