Features:

The FH007 is a miniature version of the £20,000 combined FH001, FH002 and FH003 system, but developed for a wider audience and for a wider range of applications.  It has been designed to operate as a compact hi-fi system in conjunction with a CD or DVD player, or as a high end amplifier/speaker upgrade for an MP3 player or Executive PC in the Office or Study.  The other key consideration that went into the design process was to make a system that was small enough to be used on a desk top, whilst maintaining the high end ideals of the large system.
