Dynamic Speakers

General information [contribute]

Neat web site (August 26, 2009): It's no coincidence that the design team of Bob Surgeoner and Paul Ryder have had long and varied experience of working in the music industry. Bob is has played electric and acoustic guitar, double bass, piano etc., in many different musical genres, from the late 1960s until the present day.

Paul is a guitarist/songwriter and is also an experienced recording engineer.

Both are passionate about the experience of live music and it is this passion which drives the company's enthusiasm for recreating that experience with recorded music. Neat's aim is to transfer all of the drama and excitement of 'live' music into the listener's home.

The development of a NEAT loudspeaker invariably involves hundreds of hours of listening tests. The Neat listening room is the starting point, though a new design must prove its worth in a variety of different rooms and systems before it is signed off for production. Here the designers can be found making small incremental changes to all elements of the design until it is 'just right'.

Some loudspeaker manufacturers are quite content to choose 'off the shelf' drive units for their designs, many of which can be readily obtained from D-I-Y suppliers.

The majority of the drive units and crossover parts used in Neat's loudspeakers, however, are custom-made to our own specifications.
