He recently sold us his old Quad electrostatics and Technics SL110, and was after some floorstanders. I mentioned to him, that we had some KEF 104/2 speakers in, and he was up for having a listen. We took a drive to Brixton and installed them with his Quad 707/Yamaha C2 and the results were very good.
Needless to say, he bought the KEFs, but instead of cash, he gave us the option of a Painting... we chose one, and are very happy with it!
Martin is a celebrated surrealist/abstract painter, incorporating bold colour and figures.... His work is showcased at the Dorchester, with an entire floor dedicated to his work. Damien Hurst also has a floor at the Dorchester.
He plays mainly Classical and Jazz... VERY LOUD!! his studio is quite big and the KEFs do a sterling job of filling this rather madcap space.
The painting we chose was a 'in your face' explosion of earthy colours and with array of faces and a healthy dollop of madness... we like it... a lot.
