Introducing The Gleeman, My Mate and a Mighty Fine Singer / Songwriter!

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to help spread the word for a friend and fellow audiophile of mine, Dean Morris, or as he is now known 'The Gleeman' I had no idea that he was such a talented musician but over the last couple of years he has fulfilled his dream to record some of his songs and pursue a long standing ambition to publish his music for the world to enjoy and I have to say if you appreciate real songs then I highly recommend you give his music a listen, I still find it hard to believe

10 Year Anniversary Party - 5th November - Going Back To Where We Started!

Hi Everyone, Well I'm not really sure what to say to be honest other than HFL is 10 years old, how did that happen? I guess firstly Wendy and myself would like to say a huge thanks to all our customers over that time, I don’t like the word customers really as many have become great friends over the last decade so thanks to all of HFL’s friends who have helped make the last 10 years an incredible experience. I know I’ve said this before but when we took a punt at opening a HiFi shop I r

dCS Lina System With New Focal Utopia Headphones, The Perfect Partners!

Hi All, Just a quick blog to say that if you love headphone listening as I do then I can highly recommend the new dCS Lina Headphone system partnered with the new revised 2022 Focal Utopia headphones which we now have on permanent demo, yes it is at the higher end of the headphone market but I can honestly say that if you do want the best you can get then this real really takes some beating.

Hi Everyone, Hope all is well, I’m happy to announce that we are planning on 2 more open days in 2022, the first is an event in collaboration with Chord Electronics to showcase their Ultima range of Preamps and Power amplifiers on September 24th.

Musical Cars, Something New For The iLounge Showroom!

Hi All, When we decided to open a dedicated motorsport simulator showroom it wasn't intended to be a Gulf themed room but it certainly ended up that way but to be honest what Livery is more iconic than the Gulf one. So as cool as it was having my race Radical SR1 in the showroom it didn't really fit the theme so I came across something online a few months ago that would fit in perfectly so the order was placed and it now sits proudly in the iLounge showroom to finish things off nicely.

German Physiks HRS-130 Speakers and Emperor Extreme Amplifier Now on Demo, Like Nothing Else at HFL!

Hi All, I've said it many times but speakers have always been my favourite part of the HIFi chain, the main reason being that they can make the biggest single change to the overall presentation of a system and I love all the different designs of speakers, from a traditional box to Panels to horns and all the different variations within each of those categories, well today I am pleased to say that we have the German Physiks HRS-130 speakers on demo along with their monster Emperor Extreme in

Hi All, Really looking forward to this Saturday's REL open day although it is looking like it may be a bit of a hot day so using the downstairs demo rooms with all the glass could get a little warm in the afternoon once the sun comes over, it does meant that we will have the BBQ running though so be nice to use the gardens and enjoy the weather.

Audio Research I/50 Integrated Amplifier Now On Demo, All I can say is WOW!

Hi Everyone, Well is has certainly taken some time to arrive since being announced but I am really pleased to say that the new Audio Research I/50 Integrated Valve Amplifier is now with us and it has certainly been the wait. I won't go on for too long but firstly I really can't think of a better spend of the £5198 asking price for this amp in HiFi today, it's not very often you put the words 'ARC' and 'good value for money' in the same sentence but this really is, firstly it is all han

PetrolPed's No24 Goodwood FOS Adventure!
