May 2017

Rega Record Store Day 2017 decks. First come, first served for these £248 limited edition decks. They are a higher spec than the Planar 1 (also £248) and there is a 1 in 10 chance the deck has been signed by an artist.

Exposure XM3 phono stage on dem. This £660 half-width unit is an excellent addition to my range of phono stages. MM/MC compatible with flexibility over gain and loading.

New Rega Brio also on demonstration. £598. This brilliant little amp boasts improved performance and a heaphone socket over it's popular predecessor.

December 2016

Melco N1ZH now on demonstration. £3500. Owners of quality streamers really owe it to themselves to hear what the Melco NAS solutions can do for their systems. Think of them as less of a NAS but more of an audiophile quality digital source component. Its like the difference between a pristine excellent vinyl pressing and a budget re-pressing on recycled vinyl. 

Talking of which...........the new Roksan Pug tonearm is now on dem. £1450 and comes complete with Roksan's Hi-Definition arm cable. It may not be the prettiest arm in the world but it sure sounds good.
