Eggleston to Develop New Cello Loudspeakers

Loudspeaker designer Bill Eggleston has joined Cello Technologies Corporation. He will oversee the development of a new line of no-compromise loudspeakers, according to a company press release dated July 1. Eggleston designed the Andra loudspeaker, which was designated Stereophile's "Product of the Year" for 1997.

"I am very pleased to be a part of the Cello development team," Eggleston said. "I look forward to the opportunity to expand Cello's product line, and to further increase the company's role as the technological leader in this area." The highly regarded designer is no longer associated with EgglestonWorks, the company he founded. Cello's president, David Daniels, said landing Eggleston was a "significant step toward solidifying Cello's position as the provider of the best loudspeaker technologies in the world."

In addition to forging ahead with a new loudspeaker development program, Cello has a digital technology division in the Research Triangle of North Carolina, and demonstration centers in Aspen, Houston, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Seattle, Los Angeles, and New York. The company's factory remains in New Haven, Connecticut, where it has been since its creation by audio legend Mark Levinson in the mid-1980s. Now headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia, Cello Music & Film Systems Inc. officially changed its name on July 1 to Cello Technologies Corporation, "to better reflect the broad range of products and services we provide our clients." High-end audio veteran Peter McGrath is director of business development.
