Good evening AVF

Yorkshire AV are an independent HiFi and Home Cinema store based in a quiet village in North Yorkshire.
Our retail operation is now 18 months old (we started literally weeks before the pandemic was announced.... the joys!) and our showroom officially opened in December last year, with our first visitor arriving once lockdown had come to an end.

A husband, wife and enthusiastic/qualified friends (our average age is 32!) run our business day to day - we're only a small team but we're passionate, knowledgeable and bring something a little different to HiFi and AV.

Our showroom / demo rooms are based in a cool 350 year old barn based on a farming industrial estate. We're surrounded by a luxury car dealer, tractors and beautiful Yorkshire fields.

We currently have somewhere in the region of 30+ quality brands that we are retailers/installers of but this list is slowly growing as we plough every bit of profit back into new products, stock and establishing ourselves better in the area. Coming to AVF was a big commitment for us (financially) but we're delighted to be here and looking forward to showcasing some of our solutions for our customers, our rack builds (i.e. what are we playing with this week), passing on product knowledge, advice and sales support if required.

We do offer installation (it's our background) including custom install (we are an ELAN agent, Monitor Audio, Lithe Audio, DALI etc) but often undertake design work (product, placement, configuration) on behalf of customers that need that extra bit of support.

We rarely get people just walking in given our location - most appointments we make last 2-3 hours where we go through soup-to-nuts the setups and options and spend a lot of time analysing the difference components make in systems. I like to feel like we bring some education (in a friendly way), a lot of hands on time and confidence to our customers.

Our cinema showroom currently features a DALI Phantom 16 channel cinema room, complete with SONY native 4K projection, 130" screen and an ELAN control system. It's powered by an Emotiva XMC-2 and an XPA-11 Gen3 and soon a new model DR3.

In this room we have a number of subs to try out from SVS (SB1000Pro, SB3000, SB3000 Micro, SB4000m PB2000), REL (T/x range, S/510, S/812, Carbon Special, HT/1508), Monitor Audio Silver W10 and Gold W12. Each sub setup has it's own DIRAC configuration so we can demonstrate the best it can be.

Our 2 channel demo space currently has a HiFi Racks LTD (we LOVE their stuff) podium reference rack that's forever changing. Currently it's got a HiFi Rose RS150b, Primare I35 and CD35 Prisma in there running with ELAC VELA floor standers but given we have approx 30 pairs of speakers out on display, this can quickly be modified to suit!

We're just in the process of building another room within the space, to be a multi-functional area. Namely it's going hopefully be a JBL Synthesis room, AT materials, light rejection and perhaps UST (with a drop down 120" screen) and then a 2 channel space for the rest of the time.

We are stockists of (and in brackets - what's out and available to demo) of the below as our main products.

  • Astell&Kern (SE180, SE200, Kann Alpha, SR25's all out on display)
  • audiolab (6000 series, 8300 series including MB's and XP)
  • audioquest
  • Bluesound (Power Node, Node)
  • DALI (Oberon, Opticon MK2, Phantom series)
  • ELAC (VELA, Solano)
  • Emotiva (XMC2)
  • FOCAL (headphones - all)
  • Goldring
  • Grado (Statement series, Prestige series)
  • Klipsch (lifestyle products plus 2 x soundbars)
  • HiFi Racks (podium reference, podium slimline, podium platform)
  • HiFi Rose (RS150, RS250, RS201e)
  • isoAcoustics (all speaker isolation, turntable isolation)
  • iFi Audio (ZEN range, ZEN signature)
  • Leak (Stereo130, CDT)
  • Leema Acoustics (Elements and QASAR)
  • Lehmann Audio (Black Cube II)
  • Meze Audio (Classic 99, 99-Neo, IEM)
  • Monitor Audio (Bronze, Silver, Gold)
  • Ortofon (2M and Quintet)
  • Primare* (just coming online now - will have i15, i35 and associated CD units etc)
  • Pro-Ject Audio (T1, RPM3, RPM5, X1, X2, Classic Evo) plus many electronics
  • Pulse Eight
  • Q Acoustics (Elite Dealer, Concept 300, Concept 500)
  • QED
  • REL (as mentioned above)
  • ROKSAN (Attessa range)
  • solidsteel (racks and SS stands)
  • SVS (as mentioned above)
  • System Audio
  • Wharfedale (Evo, Diamond 12, Heritage)
  • Yamaha* AVR/Stereo (just awaiting our first stock run - we're a new dealer that's just coming online)
We try our best to keep a reasonable level of stock for an "amazon" type service, but we're small and some times we do need to order items in. We're efficient however and get things turned around usually within a day.

We do stock items such as the HiFi Racks Podium Reference racks (Oak and Walnut - 4 tiers with isolation plinths, headphone stands and turntable wall mounts etc) as the lead time for those products is long at the moment (8-10 weeks). Again - everything is out on display - we actively encourage coming and having a play so that you're comfortable with what you're buying and validate/challenge reviews that you've read etc :)

We do have bundle packages but like most hifi stores, if there's a bundle you want, just let us know and we'll work you out a package price.
We use DPD for deliveries across the UK but often send out staff in the van to deliver and help setup if required.

We'll update this thread with offers, discount codes (new users to our site get a 5% discount once signing up to our monthly newsletter), bundles, supplier offers, deals etc etc but please do DM us with queries and we'll happily come back to you.

A couple of pics of some of the scenes at the store :)

Until next time - stay safe and look forward to speaking with you soon!

We hope everyone is having a great Bank Holiday weekend.
It's a little grey up north and no sign of the sun coming out anytime soon!

We've had a 5% discount code running this weekend. 5% off ANY product on the site when using code 'YORKS-SEPT21'.

Advance warning: Pro-Ject Audio prices are going up on the 1st September.

Turntables are going up by £20 (T1 series) and up to £150 (X2 series).

Accessories for turntables are increasing too - approx 10% across the board almost.

Similarly - S2 and DS2 electronics are increasing - £20 across the S2 range on average and £50 on the DS2.

Semi-conductor shortages as well as raw material costs seemingly driving this increase (as well as logistics charges).

If you were interested in a turntable, get your orders in before midnight before the pricing changes.


We've just created the new bundles of the 7th Generation Monitor Audio Silver series.


MA_Silver_200AV_Black-Gloss 4700.jpg

The Silver 200 7G Cinema 5.1 and Silver 300 7G Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 packages with Denon and Marantz amps are now listed. Delivery will start once stock is released in a couple of weeks' time.


If you are looking at packages - don't feel restricted to what is on the site. Fancy an SVS sub instead of the range unit? No problem! We'll happily create you a bespoke package with different units as required. Similarly with REL units.

Just DM us on here or via the website and get your request in. If you're fancying a pre-power setup, we can do fantastic deals with custom-install speakers (DALI, Monitor Audio, ELAC etc) with the Emotiva range too.

If you're just getting into HiFi - check out our HiFi Rose RS201e integrated amplifier, DAC and streamer packages here:


Elac-Solano-BS283_600x.jpg

We have systems with:

Monitor Audio Gold 100
ELAC Vela BS403
ELAC Solano BS283
DALI Opticon 1 MK2

All come with a FREE set of QED XT40i speaker cables (2m pair) whilst stocks last.

And finally.... clearance section!

We have a couple of units of the Monitor Audio Silver 6G available:

New boxed Silver 200 in Walnut, New Boxed Silver 50 in Satin White and our ex demo C350 in Satin White (boxed).

A open-box Bluesound Pulse Sub+ and some ex-demo audiolab power amps (8300XP x 1 and 8300MB x 2).

I called in over the weekend to buy a new subwoofer. Even my wife, who hates being dragged along to Hi-Fi shops, enjoyed the visit! Probably the highest praise you can receive!
Thanks to Lee for his friendly help, we look forward to visiting again for our next upgrade purchase.

Good afternoon!

Our home cinema demo room has had a bit of a facelift this week, with us completing our acoustic treatment and wall fabric system.

The results are stunning - we had 2 customers in this morning for demo's, both (along with their partners) have had sign-off to go ahead with this beautiful aesthetic, each with different audio solutions behind.

If you're ever wanting to come and listen to a DALI Phantom M series / E series and H series setup, we have a 16 channel demo room at your disposal.

We have subs from REL and SVS in store too that we can switch out easily - everything from the SB-1000 Pro right up to the SB-4000 is in store and the REL T/x, HT and Seri S (up to S/812) are all in store too.

If you're in the market for a fabric wall and acoustic treatment system - feel free to drop us a DM. We have a range of ISO certified AT fabrics that are all fire retardant, perfect for this environment as well as varying carbon foam densities for sound management.

We're a retailer as well as an installer - so can assist with your own packages for DIY install. We'll also price match any quotes on Monitor Audio, DALI and ELAC in-wall systems from authorised retailers.

Next week our showroom is closed Tuesday - Thursday as the builders are in as we create another demo room. This time, we're creating a "living room" with ELAC Vertex 3 in-wall / in-ceiling speakers (5.1.4), a single feature fabric wall with a Samsung QLED Neo 75" and beautiful AV furniture from Munari.
This new feature room will be completed by mid-end October all being well. We're looking to create a family friendly, normal living room that caters for in-wall products but will also support free standing packages such as the Bronze, Silver and Gold packages from Monitor Audio, DALI Oberon and Opticon MK2, ELAC Solano and Vela plus many many others as required.

We look forward to helping you soon :)

We are running:

M-375 LCR: DALI PHANTOM M-375 LCR In-Wall Speaker
E-80 ATMOS (soon going 6 channel ATMOS): DALI Phantom E-80 In Ceiling Speakers (Pair)
H-80 Rear/Surround: DALI Phantom H-80 In Wall Speakers (Pair)

Details on the fabric wall (swatches) is here: Fabric Walls for Home Cinemas

It can go direct to existing walls with our track system, using 18mm profiles. We install acoustic foam to the wall where needed and cover with the fabric system. All speakers fire through with minimal (less than1 db) loss.

Alternatively, as we do in customer living rooms - we can build a 4x2 stud wall out, install in-wall speakers to panels on the frame and then wrap in fabric. No drilling/cutting into the existing walls required :)

S series is really special! The Rubicon equivalent in-wall.

DALI Phantom M and S series are here.

The next iteration of this room will feature S-280 LCR, S-80 surround/rear with likely S-180 wide fronts.

Happy to assist though if you're wanting any support/advice on the DALI stuff. I don't think there are many of the Phantom demo rooms around :)

Good morning!

We’ve just started receiving the new Monitor Audio Silver 7G series speakers in (demo stock). If you’re in the area, pop on in for a listen :) they’re an altogether different Monitor Audio sonically. An evolution of what was already incredibly popular - the new 7G sounds much more grown up :)

We also have the MOFI StudioDeck and UltraDeck out to demo too in addition to the complete range of Pro-Ject turntables.

You may also have seen the new Q Acoustics announcement on the Concept series? Our demo stock arrives next week (full 5.1 system) - contact us to arrange a demo.

Our new two channel “living room” is almost complete - the walls are up and acoustically treated, just awaiting the ceiling in the next week or two and that’ll be our final demo room up and running!
