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.

Musical Fidelity
MF will be demonstrating their new "Roundturntable" which is part of their new Merlin system. These systems are yet to be decided.
16166201230_ea88150f71_z.jpg



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...​

Lost Themes - John Carpenter

15767492583_b93e1b5159_n.jpg


Now in!

If you're a fan of Carpenter's film scores, this is a must have! Not related to any film, this is just John Carpenter producing music for the sake of producing music! Although, listening to it just makes you want to watch The Thing, The Fog, Escape From New York, Halloween....

Oh, and £4 cheaper than amazon... :)

Will this be using the Sigma SSP optional phono stage? Thinking of getting a TT and getting the Classe phono for my CP800 which is the same as what goes in the Sigma.

Naim Audio NAC-N272 Streaming Pre-Amplifier

16720472717_89cc7f0f6d.jpg

Naim Audio have released a big brother to the NAC-N172xs streaming pre-amplifier - the NAC-N272. Ideally suited to the NAP200 and NAP250 power amplifiers, the N272 is ideal for those wanting pre/power performance, streaming capabilities, and DAC facilities, whilst keeping box count to a minimum.

Unlike the N172, the performance of the N272 can be enhanced with a dedicated power supply like the XPS. Sporting three optical, two coaxial, and one BNC digital input, the 272 provides plenty of connectivity for digital sources, allowing replay of files up to 24/192. A digital BNC output is also provided. There are also two RCA analogue inputs (one of which has a 5pin-din alternative), as well as two pairs of RCA analogue outputs (both with 4pin-din alternatives).

The NAC-N272 also features a Class A headphone amplifier.

The NAC-N272 is on demonstration now at Frank Harvey Hi-Fi.

Rega RX Loudspeakers

Rega Research have replaced their longstanding RS range of loudspeakers with the more substantial RX range. Improvements include 18mm thick MDF cabinets, which will offer Cherry, Black Ash, and Walnut real wood veneers. The fabric grilles covering the side firing bass drivers are now flush with the cabinet, giving them a simpler, cleaner look. All new drivers complete the package.

Common to all the models are the ZRR HF unit, and the 125mm DX125 mid/bass driver, which feature in the two-way RX1 standmount speaker. The floorstanding models are both 2.5-way designs. The RX3 adds side firing RR125.8 bass drivers, and the RX5 adds side firing RR7.8 bass drivers.

RX1 £798 / pair

RX3 £1298 / pair

RX5 £1698 / pair

17890468201_60230dce8c.jpg

The full Rega RX range is available for demonstration in store.

Over the past few months, our vinyl store has expanded. This has been fuelled by increasing demand for titles old and new, and whilst our catalogue may not compete with more established record stores who have been around for decades, we have more choice than local stores like HMV.

We also stock a number of film soundtracks.
