    Default Fanthorpes HiFi - An Introduction


    Hi all,

    Thanks for having us on this forum! We're hoping to make a good contribution here, either through our Hi-Fi offers or by adding our input to forum discussions.

    Here is a quick introduction below...

    About Us

    We've been trading in Hull's Hepworths Arcade since 1948. Starting out selling ex-service radios & components, business over the years has progressed to being the high end audio retailer that we are today.

    The products that we sell may have changed dramatically over the years, but our customer oriented approach at Fanthorpes HiFi has remained unchanged.

    We deliver a customer experience to suit you, offering a range of services such as our Hi-Fi trade in deals, 12 month interest free credit and UK wide delivery and installation service. Home audition is a big focus for us; we try and personally see & hear as many of our customers systems as possible to help give the best advice.

    All of the brands we deal with have been carefully selected and profiled covering a host of stlyes and price points. We believe another strong point of our business is the stock we hold available for demo. Speakers from PMC and KEF to Martin Logan, amplifiers from Chord Electronics, Bryston, Devialet and Constellation Audio and Turntables from AVID and Pro-ject just to name a few manufacturers.
