ProAc Featuring in UK Audio Show’s Hall of Fame

ProAc announces a dedicated room at UK Audio Show 2022 and features in the show's Hall of Fame.

Great news for fans of British Hi-Fi as ProAc has confirmed it will be taking part in the UK Audio Show on the 8th and 9th of October at the Staverton Park Hotel in Daventry, Northampton.

As well as having a dedicated room in the Winchester Suite to demonstrate examples of the brand's speakers such as the K Series (K6 Signature pictured below), ProAc will also be part of the Hall of Fame programme of events.

The UK Audio Show's Hall of Fame pays tribute to the people who have played a fundamental role in the development of the Hi-Fi industry, celebrating the lives of innovative designers and manufacturers who have made the industry what it is today.

Following the sad passing of ProAc's Founder, Stewart Tyler, in June 2021, the Tyler family thought this would be an excellent opportunity to celebrate Stewart's lifelong passion.

From the late '70s to the present day, ProAc's history and Stewart's innovative designs will be reflected through a special retrospective exhibition. The display will feature early speaker models, old photos, hi-fi show posters and brochures, telling the story of how ProAc started, from a small, unassuming hi-fi shop to a busy manufacturing factory with global distribution.

Stewart's daughter Zoe Tyler-Mardle will also be presenting a talk at the Hall of Fame Events Suite. She will give an insight into what it was like growing up surrounded by her father's business that started as a 'kitchen table' manufacturing operation and how, as a young child, she got involved with the infamous 'straw portal' production.

The excellence of ProAc speaker designs continues to this day under the direction of Zoe and her husband John, who worked closely with Stewart over the last 25 years. Wife Frances and son Tristan also work behind the scenes to keep pushing the business forward from strength to strength.

Zoe told StereoNET:

We are very excited to be attending the UK Audio Show this year and particularly the opportunity to exhibit some of my father's early speaker designs. We will honour my father's legacy, ensuring his work and influence continue to be felt within the hi-fi industry. We are currently developing his designs and plan to release a new speaker model in the near future.
