Entotem got in touch to tell Hifi Pig readers what they will be up to at this year’s Whittlebury show with their Plato system which was first introduced earlier this year at the Sound and Vision Show in Bristol, winning the Clarity Alliance Innovation award. In May Entotem took the Plato system to the High End show in Munich and gained interest from all areas of Europe and has since been reviewed very favourably by some of the leading HiFi journals in Germany as well as the UK. At their recent UK Retail launch in London the company shared its future plans for Plato as well as outlining its strategy for retail integration within the UK. At the launch Entotem announced an exclusive distribution deal for Germany, Robert Ross Audiophile Produkt GmbH will have exclusive rights to distribute to retail throughout Germany, other European countries will follow.Entotem_whittlebury_pic
