Post-war austerity meant that products were rather more modest. But Pamphonic learned to use high-quality external finishes (veneers) to distinguish their offerings. The link with Pye was far more evident, especially with Pamphonic offerings using radio and TV internals from Pye. Pamphonic continued to design and produce Hi-Fi entirely themselves, with fine amplifiers and preamplifiers to compete with the emerging Leak and Quad offerings. One suspects that Public Address equipment still provided the majority of the income.
