Excerpt: “We don’t do home theatre systems!” was the terse initial response to the Ferguson Hill FH009.

With the FH009 being so expensive, at £795, it isn’t the sort of decision you’d make in a split second so make sure you check out some other options before hand, but rest-assured if you do opt for the FH009, you definitely won’t be...
