Spinroad Vinyl Factory just opened within Spinneriet (The Cotton Mill), an old textile factory located in the outskirts of Gothenburg, Sweden. It's currently Sweden's only pressing plant. Currently the facility has two presses. Of course they are the new Pheenix Alpha presses made in Solna, Sweden. For now lacquer cutting and plating is done in The Netherlands (probably at Record Industry) but the company hopes to eventually add that to the in-house mix.

Wilson Audio Specialties today launched TuneTot, a compact desk-top loudspeaker intended primarily for near or mid-field listening in the executive suite, boardroom or wherever space is tight. Ideally, the speaker should be placed close to a wall to get low frequency boundary reinforcement benefits.

TuneTot the company’s most compact design since the mid-‘80s launch of the original WATT (Wilson Audio Tiny Tot). Wilson’s literature says it’s designed primarily for use on bookshelves, credenzas, counters and of course desktops—and not simply because of its size.
