    I realise I’m pretty much exclusively a vintage audio geek these days, but I’ve never even heard of them! Sorry to see anyone go out of business though, especially for something as utterly dumb as Brexit.

    Not had great market penetration , they started off with rebranded sansui (i think ) which were not subject to great reviews and did not exactly take the market by storm

    If they couldn't succeed creating a global demand with exchange rates where they are then they were unlikely to succeed brexit or not.
    Shame either way as someone's dream has gone

    I have not read the article but the chances would seem slim that the UK will doing anything other than accept EU standards in most areas. Taking back control by following EU standards without any involvement in setting them.

    It depends exactly what UK law ends up demanding. Correct markings on things like mains power and radio equipment is not optional

    Don't worry, brexit will get rid of all the immigrants that steal your potential girlfriends, so the situation should improve.

    (yes, just for clarity - I am being ironic)

    When M&J were launching themselves, they were looking to attract venture capital. I met with them at some club in London and spoke at length in London and could not see their point. Their vision and strategy were as unclear then as it would be in the ensuing years and even now in their closure. Laying the blame at ... just not on, not one bit and I fear that others who were/are ill-prepared to carry on will employ the same. #sad #pathetic
