Lee Taylor is the founder of Leema Acoustics, the lead designer and the ‘Lee’ in Leema.
A BAFTA winner, Lee has had an incredible career in music and audio, and following what is (still) the most valuable of audio educations, sound engineering at The BBC, Lee went on to work on some of the BBC’s most popular TV shows including Casualty, Blue Peter and Panorama.
Lee set up Leema Acoustics in 1998 with fellow BBC engineer Mallory Nicholls as a means of further exploring their fanatical interest in audio reproduction. Starting with loudspeakers, the company progressed into electronics, hand-building everything from the Welsh factory. Even its PCBs are made in Wales.

It’s always fun to visit a new-to-us Hifi Show and we had been thinking about going to XFi, in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, for the last two or three years, but unfortunately, it clashed with Festival of Sound in London.

We were very happy that we did.

Every year we say the same thing, ‘surely the High End Show can’t get any bigger?’, but every year it does! It is now at the point when no human can actually cover every inch of the show…we have tried our very best but I think Super-human powers would be needed for that!
