Hello! Welcome to the on-line home of Derek Hughes, one of the UK's most experienced loudspeaker designers.

I have worked in the audio industry for over 50 years, both with the BBC in audio & video engineering and with Spendor Audio Systems where I was involved with the design & production of some of the world's finest domestic and professional loudspeaker systems.

More recently I have worked as a freelance consultant designer with several companies in the UK and Europe, including updated designs of the BBC LS3/5a & LS3/6 for Stirling Broadcast and the LS3/5, LS5/8 and LS5/9 loudspeakers for Graham Audio.

I have also worked with Graham Audio to produce a high power, high quality music & effects loudspeaker system for the Royal Opera House in London. 

In current development, and derived from that project, are a range of more compact speakers for studio monitoring and high grade PA applications.

I also have experience in stereo and multi-track digital recording and editing.
