Naim Uniti Atom Driving Wilson Audio Sabrina's!

Hi All, For a bit of fun I thought I would just try the Atom on our Wilson Audio Sabrina’s, so a £20k speaker basically, not a combination you’d normally put together but it sounds surprisingly good and really shows how capable the little Atom is, I actually think a Uniti Nova on Sabrina’s would actually be a really lovely, stylish and compact system, look forward to trying it later this month once the Nova is with us :-) Cheers, Paul.

Naim Uniti Atom Now On Demo & in Stock!

Hi All, Well this has to be one of the most anticipated products in HiFi History but after what can only be described as a troublesome birth into the HiFi world I am glad to say that we now have a Naim Uniti Atom on permanent demo, we had our first batch delivered last week but they all went to customers but I had some more arrive today so I nabbed one for demo. I haven’t had a chance to listen yet but thought I would post a few un-boxing pictures and if you would like to come in for a

1st Track Day!

Hi All,   Had my first track day this week over at Bedford Autodrome, watch out Lewis :-)   The morning session was very wet which made trying to learn the circuit a challenge as the Caterham was constantly trying to swap ends on me but I actually really enjoyed it which surprised me but luckily the afternoon dried out which was much more fun, really loved the fast flowing parts of the track.   I think I have well and truly got the bug now though

A Big Thanks To Everyone Who Came and Helped Make BTD II So Much Fun!

Hi All, Both Wendy and myself wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who came along and helped make Boys Toys Day II such a success and a lot of fun, I have to admit I was quite worried during the night before as all I could hear was the rain pounding against the window and I feared a total washout but once the cars started arriving the sun broke through and we were blessed with gorgeous weather for the few hours we were at HiFi Lounge. We had a fantastic turnout of cars, a grea

dCS Sneak Peak Ahead of  BTD II This Saturday!

Hi All, I went over the dCS yesterday to run through everything ahead of our Boys Toys Day II event this Saturday and to make sure there is plenty of parking, which there really is, so that is great news. I also had a look round, I really think everyone will enjoy the dCS part of the day, firstly there will be a factory tour to see how dCS make their world glass products, then you will be taken into their new demo room, to be fair this is where I spent the most time yesterday, it really is

Hi All, Well as it is only a few days away now to our Boys Toys Day II Event I thought I had better write a quick blog with all the latest information, most importantly the weather is looking good, dry and around 70 degrees so perfect really, fingers crossed that doesn’t change. So Just to recap, this Saturday, July 22nd, we are holding our 2nd HiFi and Car event, this year in collaboration with dCS, Wilson Audio, Absolute Sounds and Lotus Silverstone. Just as 2 years ago we will meet

OMG, Life Will Never Be The Same Again, I’ve Just Been Wammed!

Hi All, WOW, what can I say, firstly I just want to send out a massive thank you to everyone at Wilson Audio for making us so welcome and also to Absolute Sounds for helping organise this trip, today was a very special day indeed, also a very long one, started at 7am and it is now midnight and we have just got back so I will keep this short as I need some sleep, the first thing we did today was a Wilson Audio factory tour which was absolutely gob smacking, the attention to detail at Wilson

Wilson Audio Training Day 1 Update!

Hi All, Just got back from our first day of training at Wilson Audio and what a great day it has been, we did spend a lot of time in their conference room learning various things like their history, told to us by John and Sheryl Wilson and how they started from their garage with pretty much instant success only to fall on hard times loosing their house then rebuilding Wilson Audio to where it is today arguably making the best speakers in the world, then we learnt about the materials used to

Postcard From Utah!

Hi All, Well we are now in Utah for our Wilson Audio training, got in last night after an 11 hour flight which was a great opportunity to listen to loads of music, I have to say that anyone who hasn’t listened to Lorde’s new album yet, give it a try as it really is very good, especially track 8, also Royal Blood’s new album comes highly recommended. So anyway once landed we made it to the Hotel which is a bit special I have to say, my bedroom is bigger than my living room, everything is big

Utah, Here We Come, For a Wilson Audio Factory Tour!

Hi All, Big week next week as I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to be taken out to Wilson Audio in Utah, USA for a few days of training, factory tour and a chance to hear the awesome WAMM Master Chronosonic Loudspeakers that come in at around £650,000 for a pair, I really never thought I would get a chance to ever hear these as they are not the kind of speaker that is easy to move around to set up at a show but in fairness I would fly to Utah just for one day to hear these, especial

Finally Found What I Have Been Looking For!

After around 3 years of looking I took delivery this week of an S3 Esprit :-) I'm really hoping it is a good one, it does appear to be but I am no expert, bought it from UK Sports cars, it has been totally restored and in honesty it is as if it has been transported back from 1985 as it is almost like new but it has done 74,000 miles and has had 12 owners, so I am lucky No 13. I must admit I was taken by it's condition and decided that if there are mechanical gremlins then everything is

PMC Cor Amplifier Launch Event News!

Hi All, Just got back from the PMC Cor Integrated Amplifier Launch event just over the road at PMC’s HQ in Biggleswade so just thought I would post a few pictures and news.  When PMC announced that they were entering the domestic electronics market with their own integrated amplifier when launched at Munich in May a lot of people, including me, were very surprised, at the end of the day PMC make speakers, what do they know about electronics? well what a lot of people don’t realise is t

Trilogy H1 Energiser, For Stax Earspeakers, Launch Event July 8th!

Hi All, We are proud to announce that we will be holding the launch event at our Highend Headphone shop for the much anticipated Trilogy Energiser, or SPD H1 Electrostatic Headphone Amplifier to give it it’s full name. This is a product I have been waiting a long time for as many of our customers import Energiser’s for their Stax Earspeakers from abroad, like the Blue Hawaii, as it has long been known that Stax Energisers really don’t get the best from the SR-009′s and SR-007′s so at long l

MrSpeakers Aeon Headphones Now On Demo & In Stock!

Hi All, This is a real quicky as I promised a lot of people that I would stick up a quick blog once we have the new MrSpeakers Aeon’s in and I am glad to say that they arrived yesterday, we have sold most of our first batch but we do have a few free stock if anyone wants to grab a pair. I really believe that these set the new benchmark for a headphone under £1000 and really do offer one of the best, if not the best, closed back portable headphones, firstly they look quite discreet, are

Hi All, Well after the success of our first Boys Toys Day a couple of years ago, in collaboration with PMC Speakers, where we put my 2 passions and many of our customers passions of Cars and HiFi into one day, well it now time for Boys Toys Day II :-) The first BTD was so much fun and I always wanted to do another one but was always a little nervous as that was the perfect day, we had a brilliant turnout, everyone had a great time and the weather was really good to us + the system PMC

Sonus Faber Homage Un-Boxing Pictures!

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to upload a few pictures of the new Sonus Faber Homage speakers that we now have on demo, I have to say that pictures really don’t do these speakers justice so if you are interested please feel free to come in and have a look as they really are absolutely stunning, it really is true that no one makes speakers quite like Sonus Faber. They are certainly not cheap, starting at £10,500 for the bookshelf but for once you really do feel like you are getting value f

Beat The PMC Speaker’s Price Rise - June 19th!

Hi All, Just a quick message to let everyone know that PMC will be putting their prices up from June 19th due to the weak pound since Brexit, to be fair they have held on longer than most to see how the pound settles down and they have kept the increase as minimal as possible and they are still worth every penny :-) At the moment we are doing demo’s daily on the Twenty5 range so I thought it only fair to mention the price rise asap so that no one is caught out, please find the prices a

New Sonus Faber Homage Range Lands @ HiFi Lounge!

Hi All, Just a quick blog as we were well and truly Sonus Fabered today :-) The great news is that we were appointed last week to be one of only 6 dealers in the UK for the new Sonus Faber Homage Traditional range, this is the range that sits above the popular Olympica range and really showcases what Sonus Faber are all about with stunning cabinetry and design that only the Italians are really capable of, with prices ranging from £10,500 to £23,500 these will slot quite nicely into our

PMC Speakers Announce Their COR Integrated Amplifier!

Hi All, Well I knew PMC had something up their sleeve to release at Munich this weekend but I never imagined it would be their own analogue integrated amplifier, very interesting indeed, more news as I get it but good to see that it is built in the UK and interesting it has treble and bass controls which is quite rare in the HiFi market nowadays but quite a few customers ask for it. It is rated at 95 watts into 8ohms so it looks like it will be going up against Naim’s SuperNait 2 integ

Introducing The New Stax SRM-T8000 Hybrid Reference Energiser!

Hi All, Big news this one as it is not everyday that Stax release a new product but especially a new Energiser, since we started HFL this is the first new Energiser we have seen and more importantly this is a new reference flagship energiser so plenty to get excited about for us Stax enthusiasts out there. Although the Stax SRM-007tII Kimik energiser is really great it has been known that there is definitely more performance to be got from the Stax SR-009′s and SR-007′s with many peopl

New Video Walkthrough Showing New Showrooms Finished!

Hi All, I just wanted to post another video showing the new showrooms Finished, well almost, I’ll do another one once they are truly finished but we are very nearly there, this is turning into a Trilogy in true Lord Of The Rings fashion, maybe not quite as epic :-) I’m hoping it is not as shaky as video 1, thanks for watching.
