The headline "The British Are Coming" is a bit misleading because Glenn Poor's Audio Video has been selling products from the United Kingdom since the 70's. Recently, though, we've added two British product lines that are quite simply outstanding: Tannoy and Puritan Audio Laboratories. Tannoy is the fabled 90 year old Scottish loudspeaker maker that Glenn Poor's sold in the 70's, while Puritan (power cords and power filters) has only been in the US market since June, 2019.

Actually, I have to give Jim Smith (of "Get Better Sound" fame) and Brian Tucker ("Mr. Studer/Revox"), my friends of almost 45 years, most of the credit for getting me excited about Tannoy loudspeakers and Puritan Audio Labs, a power purifying line. Jim set me up with Magnepan in 1977 when he was the national sales manager, and later turned me onto Avantgarde when he imported the line and made it famous in North America (actually the whole world).  Thus, when Jim told me he had begun using Tannoy as his personal reference speakers, my ears perked up.  Then Brian, who only recently had become Tannoy's representative in the midwest, brought us a pair of Tannoy "Autograph Mini" monitors to listen to.  The $2000/pair Mini is Tannoy's smallest model in their "Prestige" lineup.  It took only a few songs for us to hear the beauty and value of the Mini's.  I called Brian, and wasted little time in becoming a Tannoy dealer.  Around the same time, Brian demonstrated the Puritan PSM136 Studio Mains Master Purifier, which sells for $1600.  Our reaction was "wow"!  We've not looked back as all of Puritan's products represent incredible performance/price value.  There is still something special about British HiFi.  When you're able, come in and listen.....
