I found out this in the new edition of Hi-fi Choice FEB 2005 EDITION, issue 263. I quote : 'Current MD Charlie Brennan , operations manager Micheal Sheridian and former financial director of Tannoy, Alan Wylie, have bought Arcam from its founder and Chairman, John Dawson, and his business partner Jacky Cross. Both benfactors of this buyout of this amicable management buy-out will remain as shareholders and employees. Charlie Brennan has been Arcam's MD for nearly four years ... Former Chairman John Dawson is '' delighted'' with the deal as it effectively leaves him free to investigate new technologies and continue his passion for music, sound reproduction and audio engineering.' What do people think abou this?
