Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Can someone explain why brittish Speaker prices rose

A couple of observations:

1.The HL5 is no longer available and the current equivalent is the HL5 Plus. That change amy have resulted in a more costly speaker. Was that speaker you saw advertised just an HL5 or the new model?

2. Although the pound v. dollar is in the favour of the latter the price of goods in the UK is inflating because the cost of imported materials has increased for UK manufactures for the same reason. We ( I am British) will experience big inflation this year as the increases work through the retail chain.

3. Even taking he above into account the current pre-tax price for the HL5 Plus in the UK is 2623 gbp. Draw your own conclusions.
