Bowers & Wilkins in The Kingdom magazine

Arnold Palmer

Arnold Palmer’s luxury golfing magazine, The Kingdom, included a feature on John Bowers’ quest for true sound in their 2011 Summer issue:

“John Bowers was totally obsessed with perfecting loudspeakers; it just had to be done – a bit like climbing Everest.”

Entitled Now Hear This, the feature tells the story of Bowers & Wilkins from its humble beginnings as a small electronics shop in Worthing, West Sussex to becoming the  manufacturer of some of the world’s finest loud speakers.

You can download a PDF of the feature here.
