Showing Our Jeff Gordon Nascar at the AutoSport Show!

Hi all, It is a big year for Nascar this year with it being it's 75th Anniversary so it was great to get invited to show our 2012 Jeff Gordon Chevy Impala Nascar a the Autosport Show at the NEC as part of the celebrations, it was certainly busy and the car got plenty of attention, seems there are a lot of Nascar fans in the UK and rightly so as it is most definitely my favourite form of motorsport, not long now till the new season starts with the Daytona 500 in February. I just wanted

Naim 200 Series Unboxing + On Demo Pictures!

Hi Everyone, Well as I thought they would, the new Naim 200 Series components have certainly been getting plenty of attention since we came back and rightly so as it is all extremely good, we have already sold a fair bit of it with demo's booked for a listen which is all fantastic news and a great start to 2023. It has been quite a while since we did any unboxing pictures and I thought that if ever any products deserve it then these are it, especially as Naim have taken so much care an

iLounge Racing Sim Install Pictures and Updates!

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to share some of our install pictures from last year, 2022 certainly proved to be an interesting year, when we launched iLounge Racing early in 2022 I had no idea how it would perform, I knew when I was looking to buy my first proper sim in early 2020 I had so many questions and didn't know where to start so I thought starting a demo facility where we could help answer all those questions and offer a build, delivery and install service for the daunting world of si

BIG NEWS! Introducing the New Naim 200 Series, On Demo Now!

Hi All, Firstly Happy New Year, hope everyone is ready for a great 2023 and what better way to start the year than a pretty big announcement from Naim introducing their brand new 200 Series which is basically a new Classic range, the first for around 20 years, yes Naim don't change their kit very often but then when the existing range performed so well and sold across the world as well as it did then I guess it was always going to be difficult to replace and improve on it but here we are at

Happy Christmas Everyone, Thanks For Another Amazing Year at HFL!

Hi All, I was hoping to do a post with my favourite albums of the year but it has been such a frantic run up to Christmas, we have pretty much been all over the country installing, that I have just run out of time but I'll do my best to post that list early next year as it has been a pretty good year for new music this year, one album in particular really stands out as actually one of my favourite albums of all time so really want everyone to give that a listen. So I just wanted to tha

Croft Club 750 Enduro Race Pictures!

Hi All, Been a busy old year and I never got round to posting the pics from our Club 750 Enduro round at Croft earlier in the year so here we are. It was my first time racing at Croft, really loved the circuit but with this being the 2nd round of the Club Enduro it highlighted the problems we found in the first round where our Elise Cup 250 just isn't competitive in its class compared to the competition, so although we didn't know it at the time this ended up being the last race we wou

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

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.
