For £800.00 the Primare R32 is a superb phono preamplifier, as in it competes with much bigger, grander designs costing a lot more money. It can be used with MM and MC cartridges and offers fantastic flexibility with loading options on the rear panel. Buid quality is nothing short of awesome as well. This is a genuine must hear product!

It could be you!
We now have in stock the brilliant new P5 Wireless Headphones from Bowers & Wilkins, priced at £329.95 these are without a doubt the best Bluetooth headphones we've yet to hear, a big step up in performance over the original "wired" P5's.
With a 17 hour battery (they also come with a cable should the battery run flat whilst travelling!) they'll last long enough for most peoples uses. They have 3 buttons on one of the cups which allow you to easily skip track, pause and take calls, with dual microphones call quality is to a very high standard well.
Beautiful design, luxurious materials, stunning sound, the P5 Wireless delivers on every level
Available to purchase from the 25th of Septmber, this turntable is available for Pre-order only until that date. Rega are manufacturing only 2000 of these and they will sell out quickly.
Rega are proud to have been approached by legendary rock band ‘Queen’ to produce a limited edition (fully licensed) turntable to coincide with the release of their 18 piece 180g vinyl LP boxset containing all 15 hit studio albums sourced from the original master tapes mastered by Bob Ludwig and cut at Abbey Road studios.
The design of this unique custom turntable includes reproductions of classic Queen logo’s, and incorporates the tonearm technology of the multi-award-winning ‘plug and play’ Rega turntables. Both brand and band are quintessentially English and the combination of engineering and musical achievements make for a perfect match.
We have some Rega RP6 turntables available in both gloss red and gloss black. They are all classed as new decks, but they are slight seconds, in that there will be a small blemish somewhere on the plinth, lid or tonearm. Sonic performance is not affected.
The RP6 has been reduced from £898.00 to just £649.00. UK Delivery included in these prices.
Whenever we get offered these from Rega they always sell out incredibly quickly so don't hang about! See the refurbished section of our website.
All you need to do is add a suitable cartridge and you're ready to go

The new CDS27 is now on demonstration in-store. Priced at just £799.95 this is quite comfortably the best CD player Arcam have ever come up with. For the money the performance really is very good, if we were told it was £1500.00 we wouldn't have been overly shocked.
To make it even better value it also has a superb UPnP Network Music Streamer built into as well, perfect if you were thinking of buying a new CD player and maybe dipping your toe into the water of streaming music properly for the first time.
Partnered with the new A49 Amplifier Arcam are making some pretty serious 2 channel kit, which is good.

We've now installed a Dolby Atmos system into our demonstration room along with a Sony VPL-HW55ES Projector and PMC Wafer speakers.
If you are interested in hear the next generation of surround sound and are thinking of adding it at home arrange a demonstration.; Adding proper discrete height channels really does add an extra element.
To date not that many movies are encoded this way but that will change in due course. The new Transformers movie sounds fantastic!

We've had our demo model of the the new flagship home cinema processor from Arcam for a couple of months now, so we've had plenty of time to put it through its paces (and compare it to the outgoing AV888 as well) and we're thrilled with the end result.
Brilliant specification and flexibiltiy (7 HDMI In, 2 Out, 4K and 3D support) and most importantly superb sonically. A distinct step up in performance over the AV888 (other than the aesthetic they share nothing in common!) both for music and movies. The AV888 sounded a cold and hard sounding in comparison. On demonstration now.
Priced at £5750.00 a pair the Twenty 26 is a bargain. With good partnering equipment the performance these speakers offer for the money is superb.
Delivering serious scale and bass weight without ever sounding ponderous or slow they have a real knack of just wanting you play more and more music, which is what it's all about at the end of the day!
They took a little while to run in but it was well worth the wait!
