    Hi,
    Wonder if any of you folks might be able to help.
    I have a 'Kelvin Labs' integrated Hi-Fi amp that i am looking to sell to raise funds for more AV gear. The brand doesn't exist anymore but i thought I remembered that the designers from KL went on to set up TAG McLaren. Does anyone know if this is true? Just looking for some info to help with the advert description so if I am barking up the wrong tree or would be better posting somewhere else then please let me know!

    Thanks in advance,
    George

    Hi George
    have just read your post on the KELVIN
    LABS amp.
    I too have a kelvin labs amp and its brilliant.warm,smooth and keeps
    the room well heated!!
    As for the answer to your question..
    As far as i know.Kelvin Laboratories were a firm from southampton
    which made numereous high end amplifiers.
    unfortunately,they went bust back in 1992.
    after much scouring of the net i have found virtually no info on them.
    As for TAG MACLAREN.they took over audiolabs back in the late 1980's
    and proceeded to make the 8000 series.as far as i know TAG MACLAREN
    no longer own audiolabs and it now belongs to a japenese company.
    Anybody out there that can reinforce this greatly appreciated as my
    knowledge is'nt 100%.
    hope this was of some use to you!!
    ....paul...

    i'd like to know about them aswell..i've got two amps and the heavy mixer.the amps. work very well and the sound can be be heard all around. i'm currently running a celestion speaker off each amp. (mostley straight into my comp. then you tube:)). i got my set-up from a second hand shop,where there wwas no manual. i was wondering if how else i could use them as i do'nt know how many watts they are or anything, i.e there's a switch on the mixer of which i have no clue.apart from they do sound great! thanks for a bit of history on them.

    Tag took over in the late 1990's, not 80's. They replaced the 8000 series (they never actually produced this themselves) with the F3 series.
    IAG now own the rights to audiolab technology and brand. AFAIK they also own the Tag technology, but NOT the brand. Also, afaik, IAG is British, but the equipment is made in China.

    None of this helps the OP's question though :thumbsdow - that I cannot help on. The above thread looks like it should though.
