One of the biggest PR news items coming out of AXPONA 2022 was perhaps the announcement of Andrew Jones joining the ranks of MoFi Electronics.
Andrew has a long career developing speakers in HiFi, designing for the likes of KEF, Pioneer and most recently ELAC. Since parting with ELAC over a year ago, what Mr.Jones next move might be has been cloaked in mystery. Clearly not ready for retirement just yet, MoFi was able to scoop up the budget-friendly icon for another round of “Andrew Jones speakers”. What do those model(s) look like? Well, that small tidbit of information was not announced. But why make a move? And why MoFi? These are the questions we posed directly to Andrew in person at the AXPONA event, in this episode of The Occasional Podcast.
