At the weekend I took ownership of a couple of these...



...75 watts and 3.5 kilo each, they can fit on to a mic stand with the boom section attached to the top!

Wharfdale WPM1 active speakers. Astonishing things, thanks to CJ for pointing the way to a 'micro' PA system.

That looks pretty useful. If Wharfedale have used the same speaker technology as they do for thei studio monitors that should be a sweet sounding wee system for cafe gigs.

Some people just can't let it lie can they.

And Catskinner, so far I've only had the chance to check them out at home, but cranked up to - "Jim, stop that! You'll have the neighbours complaining!" - levels was hardly touching capacity. Sound quality is unbelievably good for such tiny units. There's really no need for the version that goes all the way up to eleven.
