In our ongoing support for the wonderful vinyl format, and based on the extremely high number of turntable sales over the last few years, we took the decision over a year ago to stock and sell a range of new vinyl as a service to our customers, and fans of the long(est)standing format.


The current resurgence is unlike any before it. Previously, sales were always hindered by the availability of new titles. This time round, virtually all new albums are released on the vinyl format, and many more older albums are continually being reissued on remastered 180gram vinyl. Any published figures you see floating around the web regarding vinyl sales will only be taking into account new vinyl sales, and not the huge sales of used vinyl that will probably outnumber that of new.


Unlike the high street retailer who has just jumped on the bandwagon, with a paltry amount of titles in racks that no one looks after, we care about our vinyl. Ours is always neat and tidy, never in cramped conditions, neatly laid out, and in air conditioned surroundings. We are doing everything we can to keep prices down for our customers, with many titles at least as low as a certain online retailer who won't be mentioned beginning with A, and in many cases, much cheaper, sometimes saving around £10 per album!

Record Store Day started 8 years ago. This a worldwide event where independent record stores around the world have access to exclusive CD and record releases from numerous artists. As we are now an independent record store, we met the criteria to take part in Record Store Day earlier this year. Despite being a little late to the party, this was a resounding success, and now we have all necessary accounts open with various distributors, we are in a great position to make Record Store Day 2015 a much bigger event, with manufacturers taking part too. Keep an eye out on forums (including here), Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites for future details.


For those buying a turntable from us, we offer 'vinyl vouchers'. As an example, when buying an RP3, you get £60 worth of free vinyl! That could get you up to five LPs! This can be used towards vinyl accessories too, like phono stages, record cleaners, record sleeves, vinyl storage etc.


Stay tuned to this thread for any vinyl news and new releases we have come in, that I will keep up to date as much as possible.

As long as people are buying turntables, we will continue to support vinyl.

Some of their previous albums have shot up in price after the limited run of vinyl finished - one of them is now on Amazon used for £550!

Forgot to mention - Rega's new Elicit-R has been running in our demo room for just over a week now and it's sounding really rather good! It is being fed by a Naim streamer and driving the new Spendor D7's, and doing an excellent job - seems to be a nice match! It'll be interesting to pitch it up against the new Naim Nait XS2 when it turns up in a few weeks time...

We've always liked Naim's Nait amplifiers. Regardless of specs, they've always sounded good, produced a thoroughly enjoyable end result, and are well suited a wide range of speakers. For the 40th anniversary of Naim's original Nait amplifier, their current line of integrated amplifiers have been upgraded to provide better quality and value for money.

The Nait 5i becomes a Nait 5Si - the Nait XS becomes a Nait XS2, and the SuperNait becomes a SuperNait2.


Nait 5Si £925
The Nait 5i gets a larger, improved power supply, revisions to the wiring layout, upgraded components, and new headphone output section.


Nait XS2 £1,595
The Nait XS2 gets the same improvements as the Nait 5Si, but the XS2 gets a single ended Class A headphone amplifier stage, and a "Constant Current Source Drive" circuit technique which was first introduced with the NAC552 pre-amplifier. This "ensures relays are provided with ultra quiet drive signals to improve sound quality".


SuperNait2 £2,750
The SuperNait2 gets the same improvements as the Nait 5Si and Nait XS2, but also includes Naim's DR (discrete regulator) technology, improving power supply performance. One interesting aspect of the SuperNait2 is that they've dropped the onboard DAC and digital inputs of the original SuperNait, thus making it a purely analogue amplifier. This is the model we're most excited about.

In store now!

The one that works better with your amplifier. The one that works better in your room. The one that produces the music you listen to to your preferences (the one you like the sound of :)).

The two speakers are quite different, so I would highly recommend getting a demo of both - preferably in the same system and in the same room.

Hi. Can Silver 6s be part exchanged if buyer lives far enough away that they cannot collect.
I would like to PX my RX6s in black oak that are only 1 year old in December fior Silver 6 in black oak how much will it cost me.
They would need to sent to me by carrier and the carrier collect mine.
They are mint condition with all original packing.

A big thank you to those who attended our open day on Saturday - it was a great turn out!

We hope you felt it was worthwhile, and that you enjoyed what was available to see and hear, especially those who travelled a little further than usual! Also thanks to the reps who took a day out of their weekend to to make it happen - especially Cyrus and Yamaha who provided two reps each!
Many people were loving the Cyrus Lyric system, even those who aren't overly keen on Cyrus in general. Many who had never heard KEF's R Series in and AV setup were also very impressed, depsite the fact that we were only playing 5.1! Plenty of comments and views on the awesome Sony VW500ES Ultra HD projector - everyone seemed to love it! Many were impressed as to just how good Bluray can look on this baby. Lots of vinyl was spun on the day courtesy of Rega via the KEF Blades and Michell via the beautifully made Yamaha separates, and plenty of vinyl was purchased on the day - I managed to commandeer the RP8 in the Osiris/Blade system towards the end of the day and have a blast of some retro tunes - Dynamix II's Just Give The DJ A Break and Herbie Hancock's Rockit 12"ers, and some lovely Boards Of Canada with their Music Has The Right To Children album. I really think we should hold a vinyl day sometime soon, as I wanted to play so much more!


Hope to see you all next year!

I am after B&W subwoofer asw608, 610, 610xp. ex demo or used.
Do you have any in stock and what is the price?

Kind Regards

Member 116841

Nothin ex demo at the moment I'm afraid. Are you local? I ask as we wouldn't be able to ship B&W anyway, but if you're local, feel free to pop in and see what we have.

A major update of Bowers & Wilkins’ long standing 600 series loudspeakers will be launched at the Bristol Show, and hit stores next month. Some of the most immediate changes have been to slim down the cabinets, and move reflex ports to the front of the cabinet rather than the back. The new range uses a ‘double dome’ HF design very similar to the of their CM10.


The full range is on demo in store.​
