As reported by SoundStage Australia:

“The open space area just prior to the show’s entrance featured what was considered by many to be the ‘headline’ act: the Aussie hero Halcro reboot. Here, the talented Mary Webb delicately presented her artistry and shared the limelight with the massive fire power from the newly-relaunched Halcro. The Australian brand shook the audio world many years ago and now Head of Sales & Marketing Mike Kirkham, who is also a record producer of note, and Principle Engineer Lance Hewitt were at hand for its reintroduction into the high-end space. The revival is being driven by reengineered [dm88] monoblock amplifiers and new giant electrostatic speakers, the Eclipse ESL, retailing for AU$70,000. PS Audio electronics and a prototype Wand turntable with The Wand tonearm were used to complete the system configuration. In this context my comments would be that the Eclipse ESL speakers sounded rather stunning. I look forward to hearing more from Halcro.” Read the full article here.
