    Will do Steve. We'll be running a trade in program for the new KEF Reference models, so may well have some old Reference coming in. Although, with the lack of a dedicated rear for the new range at the moment, I'm not sure of the likelyhood of that happening! I'll keep an eye out for any B grade that KEF might come up with.

    Here's a few examples of some of the vinyl we have in stock, and a comparison of prices to Amazon, as of this afternoon. Amazon prices in brackets.

    Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - Arctic Monkeys £14 (£15)

    Master Of Reality - Black Sabbath £10 (£22.53)

    Music Has The Right To Children - Boards Of Canada £17 (£19.14)

    Hotel California - The Eagles £14 (£22.95)

    Fresh Cream - Cream £11 (£19.64)

    American Beauty (RSD) - Bruce Springsteen £10 (£14.81)

    What's Going On - Marvin Gaye £10 (19.30)

    Blue - Joni Mitchell £14 (£18.01)

    Jagged Little Pill - Alanis Morrisette £14 (£18.13)

    Bleach - Nirvana £14 (£20.99)

    The Bends - Radiohead £13 (£15.67)

    Master Of Reality - Black Sabbath £10 (£22.53)

    The Colour And The Shape - Foo Fighters £28 (£40.63)

    Dial M For Monkey - Bonobo £15 (£24.52)

    I'll add a few more examples when I get a chance. As you can see, some of those differences are not small! Amazon may be convenient (I use them myself for some things), but they're certainly not the cheapest! Support local record dealers!

    Hi, back in January you posted some reductions on the SVS range, such as the SB1000 - I was wondering if something similar might happen again?

    At the moment it is only in store, except for those ordering turntables online, as we can package the vinyl with the turntable for shipping.

    Our website will receive a massive update shortly, and when it does, we will be adding vinyl listings to it, once we're up to date with adding new products.

    BOWERS & WILKINS CM SERIES 2

    Bowers & Wilkins have announced their new and improved CM range, with an addition of an interesting extra speaker...

    [​IMG]

    The new range takes advantage of the "double dome" tweeter which was introduced to the range with the CM10 late last year, as well as benefiting from a cleaner look, with allen bolt heads removed for example.

    Models are as they were previously, with one addition - the CM6 S2. This model has the same cabinet dimensions as the CM5, but mounts the tweeter outside the cabinet in the same way as the CM10s. This aids imaging and precision, with no effects from the cabinet or its baffle, and certainly not from anything airborne within the cabinet.

    [​IMG]

    Initial listening sessions at B&W were promising, with the range displaying greater clarity and control in the bass region, with more open and airy higher frequencies, particularly the CM6, as you would expect. We look forward to eharing them in our demo rooms...

    The range and prices are as follows:

    CM1 S2 £649/pair

    CM5 S2 £949/pair

    CM6 S2 £1499/pair

    CM8 S2 £1499/pair

    CM9 S2 £1999/pair

    CM10 S2 £2999/pair

    CM Stands £400/pair (silver or black)

    Centre £499

    Centre 2 £799

    ASW10 CM £999

    All speakers are available in Gloss Black, Satin White, and Rosenut. The ASW10 CM subwoofer is available in Gloss Black or Satin White.​

    DENON HEOS

    Denon have introduced HEOS - a high quality wireless multi-room system, controllable by any Apple IOS or Android device.

    Music can be accessed either by apps such as Spotify, Rhapsody (Napster), Deezer and TuneIn, as well as being able to stream music from various devices stored on your home network as well as from the handheld control device itself.

    Control is simple and intuitive, with nifty little features such as being able to group all the individual zones together as one with a simple "pinch" together of two fingers (as you would 'zoom out' of a map on an IOS device). Playlists can be set up for individual users, who all have independent control of their own zone.

    The HEOS range is as follows:

    HEOS 3 £249
    The HEOS 3 is a standalone stereo wireless speaker utilising dual full range drivers driven by a Class D amplifier, and can be used one its side or standing vertically. A second one can be added for a more conventional stereo experience. An analogue jack and a USB input are provided to plug in an external source such as a memory stick.

    HEOS 5 £349
    The HEOS 5 is the mid range stereo wireless speaker that utilises four custom drivers and a single radiator, allowing it to fill larger rooms. The same connection flexibility is offered.

    HEOS 7 £499
    The HEOS 7 is the top of the range wireless speaker, using five dedicated Class D amplifiers to drive two tweeters, two mid drivers, and a single large woofer, which are backed up by two passive radiators to improve bass performance. Obviously this will fill larger rooms than the 3 and 5. Again, the same connection flexibility with the added bonus of a headphone sockety and a wireable ethernet connection.

    HEOS AMP £399
    The HEOS Amplifier is a 100 watt per channel amplifier, based on Class D technology for improved efficiency and lower heat emissions. Its power output allows it to be used with a wide range of loudspeakers. As well as the streaming capabilities of the HEOS wireless loudspeakers, the HEOS AMP also has an optical digital input, a USB input, an analogue jack input and a pair of analogue RCA phono inputs for listening to external sources. A subwoofer output is also provided to add a subwoofer for use with smaller speakers, or to back up speakers in larger rooms. All you need to add to a HEOS AMP is a pair of loudspeakers.

    HEOS LINK £299
    The HEOS LINK allows an existing hi-fi setup to become part of the HEOS network. The HEOS LINK provides the same inputs as the HEOS AMP, but adds optical and coaxial digital outputs as well as a pair of variable analogue pre-outputs to plug into a spare input on an existing system - your current hi-fi is then ready to enjoy the full benefits of Denon HEOS.

    HEOS EXTEND £79
    The HEOS EXTEND can be used to strengthen an existing HEOS network, or to extend its range by placing it within the outer range of an existing network.

    RECORD STORE DAY 2015

    We're all signed up for Record Store Day this year - Saturday 18th April - which will be our second as an official participant in this worldwide event, which this year is being sponsored by Rega, who have produced a limited edition turntable just for the event - details in the next post.

    Last years participation was a bit of a last minute affair so we had little time to prepare for it, but despite that, it was surprisingly busy and well attended, and above all, fun! This year, we will have the time to plan it better, making it bigger and better! This time round it will be more like our annual open day in Nov/Dec, with various manufacturers attending, but of course this will be centred around the vinyl format.


    We will have six vinyl systems up and running:

    Rega Research
    This system will comprise of Rega components from start to finish, but the components as yet are undecided.

    Rega Research / Classe / Bowers & Wilkins
    Rega's RP10 will be fronting a system hosted by B&W, comprising of Classe's new Sigma electronics and an as yet undecided pair of B&W loudspeakers.

    Project
    Henley Designs will be demonstrating their top of the range Signature 10 turntable, with amplification from Roksan. Speakers to be announced.

    Michell Engineering

    Michell will be demonstrating their new Orbe SEx turntable. Amplifier and speakers to be announced.

    Clearaudio
    Sound Fowndations will be demonstrating the Master Innovation turntable along with electronics and loudspeakers from GamuT.
    [​IMG]

    Musical Fidelity
    MF will be demonstrating their new "Roundturntable" which is part of their new Merlin system. These systems are yet to be decided.
    [​IMG]


    Of course, other than our growing choice of vinyl in store, there will be Record Store Day exclusives available, which is what the day is all about. Our vinyl stocks are nearing a thousand individual titles now, and no doubt will be larger by the time RSD comes round in April.

    Audioquest will be present too, with their cables being used on various systems, and they will also be demonstrating their new Nighthawk headphones.

    Stay tuned for more details which will be coming soon...​

    Monitor Audio's new Gold range has started to trickle through ahead of the Bristol Hi-Fi Show where they will be make their first hi-fi show appearance in full. Crossover and driver improvements have improved detail and soundstaging, amongst other things.

    Below is a pic of the Ebony finish Gold 100 standmount model, which are now in store and available for demo, along with the Gold 50.
