To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Welsh hi-fi brand Leema Acoustics has announced a brand new Quantum range of hi-fi parts. The Quantum series will consist of the Electron CD player, Positron music streamer, Neutron DAC/preamp and Graviton power amp. All with, we agree, rather brilliant product names.
While full details of each product have yet to be released, visitors to this week’s Bristol Hi-Fi Show will get their very first glimpse of the new Quantum Series products.
Lee Taylor, co-founder of Leema Acoustics, said: “Leema started as a hobby project in a small metal shed, bought from a Littlewoods catalog in 1998. The fact that 25 years later we are still doing what we love, although thankfully now in a much larger shed, is a constant source of amazement to me. It seems the old adage ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ is true.”
We’ve also been teased that the brand will be working on some other technology projects this year as part of its birthday celebration.
Leema Acoustics was founded in 1998 by two ex-BBC audio engineers, Lee Taylor and Mallory Nicholls. Their first product was the well-received Xen micro monitor loudspeakers before they ventured into electronics. The Tucana integrated amplifier then followed in 2006 (the latest editions of which were highly acclaimed), and Leema remains one of the UK’s few hand-built products from hi-fi brands. All Leema products are handmade, designed and manufactured in Welshpool, Powys in Wales, with components sourced locally from the UK and Europe.
The new Quantum products will be displayed alongside a fully Tucana-based demo system at the Bristol Show (room 412). There’s no word yet on pricing, but we’ll see what other information we can glean from Leema Acoustics when we see them at the show this weekend.
The Bristol Show runs from February 24-26 and tickets are available online through the show’s website official website or at the door.
