Our missionTo help create audio systems that replay music convincingly, conveying all the emotion of the original performance, at real world prices. Our aim is to offer components that create the illusion of musicians performing in the room. Our search has identified a number of smaller manufacturers who work harder to design audio components that meet our demanding expectations.
We believe that audio equipment doesn't have to be expensive to be good and we take great delight in breaking the rules by finding outstanding sounding equipment at sensible price points.
We offer some distinctive, appealing products by Soundsmith, Quicksilver Audio, Dynavector, Nola, Green Mountain Audio, Galibier Design, Discovery Cable, Prism Sound, Benz Micro, Astin Trew, Valvet, Morsiani, Durand Tonearms, Klipsch, WBT and Hannl.
Realism and dynamicsFor each of the products we offer, we looked for tonal accuracy, detail resolution, dynamics and timing, within realistic budget constraints. The ranges we have selected meet our criteria and are built by designer/manufacturers who share our values and ethos on high fidelity.
We have sourced our own range of moving coil cartridges and tonearm which offer incredible performance for relatively modest prices. We are receptive to new product developments like the exceptional Soundsmith Strain Gauge phono cartridge system and the magnificent Klipsch Jubilee horn speaker. We are the first UK home audio stockist for the Prism Sound Orpheus FireWire interface, which was awarded Hi Fi News’s “Outstanding Product” award in January 2010.
