It’s always nice to do something for the first time, and on the weekend of the 24th – 25th of June, Fanthorpes Hifi are making their first trip to the North West Audio Show, at Cranage Hall in Cheshire.

Something else that will be happening for the very first time is the debut UK show outing of the Innuos Zenith SE (http://www.fanthorpes.co.uk/innuos/innuos-zenith-special-edition-2218358-418316-837962.php) (4999). This limited edition Zenith represents the pinnacle of Innuos audio technology.

Antony from Innuos will be on hand to answer all your technical questions and to demonstrate how rewarding and easy streaming can be, whether over a network, or connecting directly into your DAC via USB.

We haven’t forgotten Analogue though. Kieran Pickaver from Henley Designs will be with us too. Kieran will be showcasing the Project Signature 12 turntable (http://www.fanthorpes.co.uk/project-turntables/project-signature-12-turntable-2217174-383957-835726.php) (7499) with the Ortofon Cadenza Black cartridge (http://www.fanthorpes.co.uk/ortofon/ortofon-cadenza-black-moving-coil-cartridge-2217187-412786-835751.php) (1825) and Project’s Reference Phono Box

From a practical point of view, there will also be two demonstrations during each day showing the benefits of improving your cartridge. Kieran will be rotating through the Ortofon black cartridges moving from 2M Black (http://www.fanthorpes.co.uk/cartridgestylus/ortofon-2m-black-moving-magnet-cartridge-2186410-418230-800079.php) (495) to Quintet Black (http://www.fanthorpes.co.uk/ortofon/ortofon-quintet-black-s-cartridge-2216649-412786-834788.php) (679) and then Ortofon Cadenza Black (http://www.fanthorpes.co.uk/ortofon/ortofon-cadenza-black-moving-coil-cartridge-2217187-412786-835751.php) (1825), pointing out the improvements on the way.
