Unusual in the tech sector, just for being a British brand, Linsar was set up in 2006 and focused on AV products, especially TVs. Based in Bournemouth in the UK, the company gets its products made in Turkey by manufacturing company Vestel.

It started off small, doing only small-screen TVs and putting a focus on quality and especially sound. The Linsar X24 we tested recently is an example of this, as it comes with what is basically an integrated soundbar, as well as a DVD player and a free Roku streaming stick. Not bad for £300. They now make TVs up to 50 inches in size now, as well as a small selection of washers, dryers and dishwashers. After all, you’ve got to get up off the sofa to wash your clothes occasionally too…
