The proceeds will help to continue the singer-songwriter’s philanthropic work.  The late George Michael, who died suddenly on Christmas Day in 2016, was a keen visitor to galleries and artist’s studios, where he developed friendships with many of the Young British Art Movement (YBA) artists whose work he admired deeply.

Betwixt vibrant red and calm blue sits ‘royal’ purple. You may call it mauve or violet, and it may not always be accompanied by a catchy preliminary adjective, but the colour purple was the most sought after in history, and has roots in mythology, piety, art and royalty. The most refracted colour when light passes through a prism, purple is at the far end of the visible colour spectrum, and is the hardest colour for...

Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Sting, Hank Williams… the roll call of owners of guitars built by C.F. Martin & Co. goes on and on. It’s no surprise, then, that the ambition of anyone who loves...

Cessaro has always taken pride in being a refreshingly different and forward-thinking German speaker manufacturer – a company that does not follow the mainstream with their philosophy.  Defined by unconventional developments and uncompromising components matched with the finest manufacturing techniques, Cessaro’s parts are not made for hi-fi speaker productions. Instead, their products are produced for recording studios, aerospace and the military-industry. The TAD (Technical Audio Device, Japan) compression drive units which the company use inside...

Any manufactured product that comes from Switzerland, especially one that is the result of dazzling engineering and superlative attention to detail in construction – and one that has achieved international recognition and awards – is often at risk of failure of creativity and imagination. Not darTZeel Audio however. This company takes just as keen a focus on design quality as it does on technical construction. Many have compared their technical precision to the well known...
