New Focal Aria Speakers – Launch Offer!

The new Aria speakers from Focal have arrived, with a great offer attached from ourselves. These speakers start at less than £900 per pair, but you can save up to 50% on a pair when bought with one of our amplifiers.

This offer lasts until the end of December, so if you are looking for a amplifier / speaker package before the new year, you must audition the Aria.

Avid Turntables (and phono stages)

We are delighted to announce that we are now stockists of Avid Hi Fi products. Selected products from Avid’s range of turntables, from the sub £1,000 Ingenium, to the mighty Acutus (pictured) are now on demonstration. All exhibit superb engineering with fastidious attention to detail. Each turntable is related to all others in the range, with increasing price comes improved abilities to ‘read’ micrometric information under dynamic conditions (ie. play records better). The clarity of thought behind the engineering, together with a deep understanding of the importance of acoustic isolation, coupling and termination, means that Avid are undoubted leaders in their field.

dCS Vivaldi – First Thoughts

Our Vivaldi system was installed today in our main demonstration room. One word sums up my initial reaction, ‘astonishing’!

The level of musical information pulled from ‘red book’ CD is, frankly, unbelievable. But more important, as noted by several people present at the unveiling, there is a degree of musical coherence and communication that none of us had ever experienced before, with any source. This system is a masterpiece, and we will enjoy seeing what it can do with other sources of digital music.
