"My sister and I had the pleasure of visiting Martin and Malcolm for the day. They had been refurbishing an old Acousta Cabinet 115 that I was fortunate to purchase. I had originally taken them to Martin a few weeks ago, and after a bit of banter, Malcolm offered to revive them for me. I can honestly say they did not disappoint. The Acousta cabinets look amazing, especially with the addition of the DX3 drivers. The sound is fantastic, and they look even better with their new grill cloth.
While there, we also had the chance to listen to a pair of the new TP2 speakers that Malcolm had just finished preparing for the Ascot show. Those are seriously impressive speakers. If you have the space for them, I wouldn't hesitate to get a pair. Their appearance is stunning, and the craftsmanship that goes into all their speakers is simply superb. The attention to detail is faultless, and the sound quality is astonishing.
We were invited back to the listening room where we had the privilege to experience the Almira Speakers. Not only is their design top-notch, but their sound is also absolutely amazing. My sister was particularly impressed by the intricate detail and expansive soundstage they produced. I can tell she's a big fan, and I suspect she might own a pair one day.
We also had the opportunity to listen to the Acousta 117, and personally, they sounded perfect to me. The thought that I had a similar pair in my car, waiting to be taken home, made me even more excited. Over the years, we've owned many pairs of high-end speakers, but we both agree that Lowther speakers are unparalleled. I cannot express my gratitude to everyone at Lowther enough and look forward to our next visit."
I built my Acousta speakers in 1985 and during that time have used the older PM6A, later PM6C and PM7C. Tried other smaller speakers over the years but always returned to the Acoustas. Singing voice and laid back music sound so so good. Decided when I retired that I would build some fancy horn cabinet utilising the Lowther PM2A chassis speakers. Bought the drivers from Lowther and to 'bed in' them in I decided to fit them to my Acoustas till I got my new horns designed and made. This included moving the front panel forward, increasing the rear chamber for the larger deeper magnet, and altering the volume of the horn chamber and throat area to suit the new drivers. Wired them up switched them on and was immediately amazed at the sound, That was 8 years ago! Never did design the replacement, just kept playing music through my Acoustas with the PM2As - they are all the speaker I will ever need....
I built my Mini Acouster speakers in 1982 from plans provided by Lowther. They have been in continuous service ever since and have undergone 2No drive unit upgrades to the current EX3's.
Back in the day, Lowther only supplied the plans. I had to source top quality plywood and spend many hours/days/weeks/months cutting all of the angles and gluing up with airtight joints. But I have never regretted it and they still perform as well today as the day they were completed. But what is this??? You can now purchase a complete kit and build yourself!!! What are you waiting for???
Go and get one and not only enjoy the building, but you will get to hear wonderful sound in your home...just like me!
A huge thank you to Martin and Malcolm for indulging me in my passion for Lowther Loudspeakers, and their hospitality and knowledge, a great way to spend a Sunday morning . If you have the remotest interest in Lowther Loudspeakers and Hi-Fi, book a slot and pay them a visit, you will not be disappointed, and so glad that you did. Once again thank you Martin and Malcolm.
Thank you Martin, amazing job indeed!!
You will not find any high pressure salesmen at Lowther. Everything is conducted in a professional, friendly, relaxed and unhurried manner.
I would urge others to make the effort and visit the Listening Room and experience for themselves the stunning sounds contained within.
Many thanks to Martin, Malcolm and Pete for a memorable visit and a wonderful pair of Silver PM2a drivers.
At long last I’ve been able to listen to my Lowther PM6C reconditioned drive units. They sound even better than I remember when my Father used to listen to them!
A great job – thank you.
"Lowther feels friendly and family like... I set 2020, as the year for Lowther, having read accounts from enthusiastic owners... Until I heard it, i did not believe the accounts... Piano music brings tears..i can imagine that those who choose Lowther speakers with a flatter response which I notice are those with less strong magnets, are missing that very last bit of speed that for me is the Lowther magic.
Call me a believer!"
“Having had four Lowther PM6 speakers, my father’s, sitting unserviceable in a cupboard for the last 30 years I contacted Martin and his team for help and advice. I cannot express how helpful the team has been.
For the first time in my life, all four of the driver units have all been reunited with their cabinets and the results are even better than I remembered from my childhood.
British and brilliant.”
