I fainted in the curry house when I heard REM had split up. That's me in the Korma.

May You Never


Welcome car owning music lovers! This month we are mostly looking at BMW Mini upgrades. Why? Well, despite producing exciting and innovative cars, BMW is a manufacturer that needs some help in raising the performance of its on-board audio system. If you do not have a BMW, then don't worry, the principles employed by FOUR MASTERs to make a vast improvement are the same whatever the manufacturer. This month we feature as our month-related track a fine old tune by innovative folk rocker John Martyn. Innovative that is, back in the 70's however, his music remains extremely influential amongst young acoustic guitarists. Have a listen to this, his biggest "hit" played live on The Old Grey Whistle Test.

Mini Factory


On the 27th May, we were invited to go along to the BMW Mini factory in Cowley to an open day. We had a great day demonstrating audio to visitors. Most of these were Mini owners and it was not at all hard to convince them of the potential for great sound reproduction from these super compact, luxury cars. Read our report here:

How To Tame Your Sound


The BMW Mini has quickly established itself as one of the world's best selling compact executive car. With more on the UK roads, we find plenty of opportunities to help owners achieve a vastly improved sound to that delivered from the factory.
You can read about a plug and play option from Audison here:

We have listened critically to Audison's Mini solutions and are completely blown away. The elegance of the installation and the uplift in sound over the standard BMW and BMW dealer upgrade offering has to be experienced to be believed.
