Hello everyone,

I'm Steve from Sounds Heavenly and I have just joined Art of Sound as a trade member. I'm passionate about helping people get the best sound from their audio and AV systems and I'm always happy to help with any cabling questions. My specialism is with systems that have bespoke or unusual connections, primarily Bang & Olufsen, Naim, Quad, Leak, Meridian, Loewe, etc but I am happy to help with any brand or situation. I have helped to set up everything from church sound systems to underground recording studios to a 106 seat commercial cinema and I love a challenge!

Please feel free to get in touch via my site at www.soundsheavenly.com if you would like any help with getting your system connected and working at its best. I have enclosed a bit of history about myself and my company below, so please take a look and feel free to reply with any comments!

All about Steve and Sounds Heavenly:

I set up Sounds Heavenly in 2004 and I still manage the company on a daily basis. By 2009, Sounds Heavenly had grown to become the UK's leading independent manufacturer of cables for Bang & Olufsen audio systems, supplying high street stores, multi-national companies, installation engineers and members of the public. You can see some of the highlights from the company history in the Timeline section below.

I bought my first Bang & Olufsen product (a 1977 Beocenter 3300 receiver) from a junk sale at the age of 13 and spent the next 6 months repairing it and restoring it to showroom condition. This was the start of a life-long love affair with Bang & Olufsen's design. I have worked in the UK Electronics industry since graduating in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 1996. Whilst working for several specialist telecommunications and cabling companies during this period, I have worked on audio and video technology for the transport industry, public broadcasting and military applications, giving me unrivalled access to key electronics technology and industry contacts when I established Sounds Heavenly. I am married to Lynn and we have two daughters.

In 2012, I was thrilled to be invited to visit Bang & Olufsen's current factory in Struer, Denmark, as well as "The Old Farm" in Quistrup, where Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen founded Bang & Olufsen in 1925 and also the Struer Museum, which showcases many historic Bang & Olufsen designs. Since 2009, Sounds Heavenly have been proud sponsors of the BeoWorld Forum, the World's number one independent B&O community website. I am now very pleased to be involved with Art of Sound as a Trade member.

I take great pride in customer service and my continuing 100% positive feedback records on both eBay and Amazon reflect this. As a Christian company, Sounds Heavenly is run on ethical lines. I always aim to provide a personal and professional service, whatever your requirements.

Wherever possible, I source products from developed countries where workers are paid a fair wage to work in safe conditions. I am working with suppliers to ensure that none of my products contain conflict minerals, ie. those mined in areas of Africa where warfare is causing human suffering. The majority of my cables are developed, finished and tested in the UK by my experienced team of Electronics Engineers.

I aim to respond to enquiries and ship orders within 48 hours of receipt and over 90% of orders are shipped on the same working day that payment is received.

My cables now are in use by many high profile customers, including sports stars, prominent musicians and also members of several royal families. I encourage you to contact me if you would like to know more about what Sounds Heavenly can offer you.
