Hi-Fi Corner Insider - By Hi-Fi Choice

We are delighted to share this article about our new HiFi Corner showroom which features in this month’s Hi-Fi Choice. In case you haven't heard, in addition to our award winning Falkirk store, we also operate from what is now the UK's biggest experiential showroom, boasting 8500sq ft of showroom space, a warehouse and no fewer than six listening rooms.  These comprise of two hi-fi rooms, one reference quality hi-fi demo room, two cinemas,  a headphone booth and TV and lifestyle area.

As Hi-Fi Choice kindly say: "The sound is superb; the acoustics are excellent - neutral without sounding like an anechoic chamber or broadcast studio - and the system is revealing yet beguilingly musical. Indeed, despite the relatively low-priced pre/power being used, it is one of the finest sounds I have heard at a UK dealer." - David Price Hi-Fi Choice 2019

You can read the full article here, but in addition, we would encourage you to drop in and see what all the noise is about.

Yamaha 5000 Series Arrives

Yamaha 5000 Series Arrives

It was back in 2018 (doesn’t that feel like a long time ago?) when Yamaha announced their new 5000 series, and despite having sold a number of sets of NS5000 loudspeakers since then, it’s not until now that we finally receive our C5000 and M5000 pre and power amp to complete the system. Only one last piece of the puzzle remains, we are STILL waiting on our GT5000 turntable (GT standing for Gigantic and Tremendous no less!), but for now - a Yamaha CDS3000 CD player is the natural partner for this beastly system.
