High fidelity is the term now commonly known as Hi-Fi, and is used to describe high quality reproduction of sound. Audio manufacturers started using the term in the 1950’s, with the advent of reel-to-reel audio and subsequently vinyl. The benefits of having individual components such as turntables, radio, tuners, pre-amplifiers, power amplifiers and loudspeakers became evident and manufacturers focussed on the individual technical characteristics of each.
Today, high fidelity products are a core part of our business. We provide sales, advice and installations for high quality Hi-Fi products from manufacturers with history. Manufacturers like Marantz – the founder, Saul Marantz, designed and built his first Hi-Fi component from his house in Kew Gardens, New York during the early 1950’s. Today we are a Marantz, Denon and Rotel specialist. For loudspeakers, we are a Bowers & Wilkins approved specialist, and also stock Q Acosutics, Canton, Velodyne and Boston Acoustics. We sell and install floor-standing speakers, bookshelf speakers, surround sound speakers, in-wall, in-ceiling, outdoor… all tailored made to your personal requirements.

Most people enjoy music. But some people are passionate about it. So are we! Music should be reproduced – in our opinion – exactly the way the artist intended, because nothing – absolutely nothing – should get in the way of the music. That’s why we at Marantz have only one philosophy: “Because Music Matters.”
For Denon, audio-video reproduction is not just a business. The creation of products that can deliver total quality enjoyment to others is a fundamental driving passion and the reason we exist. What’s more, our constant quest to create the perfect entertainment component is the key to transforming creative ideas into leading innovation, and to anticipating consumer needs. In recent evolution, this has included the development of mobile technologies, so that customers can enjoy the best possible quality reproduction in any format. Bringing purity of sound and joy to customers’ lives is what Denon is all about.
Much of Rotel’s success can be attributed to their fundamental engineering philosophy called Balanced Design Concept, which is a disciplined synthesis of physics, electronics, and mechanical engineering. Balanced Design Concept revolves around three major areas: parts selection, circuit topology, and critical evaluation. These aspects influence final sound quality significantly and illustrate Balanced Design’s holistic approach to product development.
