Marantz's brand ambassador and HCC Hall of Famer Ken Ishiwata will be demonstrating his high-end hardware at an exclusive event at Birmingham-based independent AV retailer Music Matters on December 4th.

Ken has one of the most influential sets of ears in the AV biz, with over 30 years of audio engineering under his belt. He will be demoing Marantz's Premium Series components and the new Boston Acoustics M Series loudspeakers - and if our experience of Ken's demos is anything to go by, this is something you won't want to miss out on.

Says Music Matters' director Rod Ardern, 'We're delighted to be welcoming Ken. The Marantz portfolio, ethos, and excellent customer support is perfectly aligned with our customers' requirements.'

Numbers for the event are strictly limited. Places can be reserved by contacting Maurice Tyner at Music Matters, 363 Hagley Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B17 8DL (tel: 0121 429 2811,
