Yes.. they own a number of ex-UK companies... i can't remember them all, but Mission just became one of them, and the remains of TAG-McLaren (product under the name used before they got sucked up by McLaren)

why can this new quad only be found on this (for me not familiar) site?
I cant find anything on this new type...

Im wondering if they still use the same delayline?
(Iam thinking about building a 988 except with the construction of the quad spider esl design)

Default and another one...

The stretching jig that came all the way from Huntingdon to Shenzhen.

If the pictures are up to date, it seems that the "new"
Quad is the same 988/989 under new clothes. (Which itself was esl63 face lifted...)

It is a pitty that after the late Peter Walker passed away, no one can really further develop his masterpieces.

How do you think they should be further developed?

I can forsee the biggest reliability problem with the new speaker already- hair in the drivers!
