    Hi there

    I'd like to praise Acton Gate Audio in wrexham.. great audio shop ran by real enthusiasts. I've spent a few afternoons there swapping bits of kit around to get what works for me. I bought my speakers, Bluray player and a few other items there.
    Great guys to deal with.

    Thanks John

    Would seriously love to big up the Audio Rooms in Hull. Fantastic hi-fi showroom/dealers.

    I have always had excellent service from Paul Hobson at Moorgate Acoustics, who recently sold my old Linn / Naim active system to good effect. I would also like to praise David Brook of Brook Audio / MCRU. I recently purchased new speaker cables and a digital interconnect from him. The speaker cables were a no-brainer, but he won't let me pay for the digital interconnect until I am satisfied it is better than my original cable. Not many retailers would do that.

    I would like to add Doug Brady Hifi in warrington to this list if I may. They've been looking after me for the last 5/6 years or so, always very welcoming, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. There is no hard sell from them, they only want to sell you products that they would be happy to use themselves. Back up from them has been great too. I have 3 hifi shops in the city where I live but I am more than happy to travel the 25 miles to use these guys.
