HISTORY

The brand was founded by Colin and Wyn Higham in 1979. For the next 13 years or so Colin developed a small range of turntables and REVOLVER was for some years acknowledged as a significant force in this specialised area of the UK Hi-Fi market. Sixty percent of sales were made overseas, with turntables exported to fifteen countries. However, severe illness in 1990 meant Colin was no longer able to function within the company, and without his input, the company failed.

Peter Ratchford and Ray Nugent of Revolver UK Ltd bought the sole trading rights to the brand and in 1994 they launched a small range of high quality but low priced loudspeakers, manufactured for them by JPW Loudspeakers. The products were well received by both the trade and the reviewers and significant distribution was achieved. By 1996 the overseas market included more than 20 countries.

Revolver UK Ltd was then bought by an electronics company in 1998 who, for reasons of their own, shortly afterwards discontinued with the loudspeaker production. The brand name Revolver eventually became dormant.

Early in 2002 Mike Jewitt (ex Heybrook Hi Fi) and Charles Greenlees (ex JPW Loudspeakers) formed The Acoustic Partnership and in turn bought the sole trading rights to the brand “REVOLVER”.

Mike has a well established reputation as a successful loudspeaker designer, having been previously with Mordaunt Short and Canon Audio before joining Heybrook Hi Fi in 1997. Charles has been with JPW Loudspeakers from the start and was involved with the purchasing and production of their own products and those of the myriad of OEM brands that they produced during the 1990’s.

The new range of REVOLVER loudspeakers produced by The Acoustic Partnership has been specially designed and created for use with both quality Audio and/or Home Cinema systems, with products voiced for both music and movies. All design, development and production is based in the United Kingdom.

From January 2012 Graeme Holland (of Audion) has taken over directorship of REVOLVER and will be adding his unique signature to the REVOLVER brand.
