    I would like to recommend Dave Cawley at Soundhifi.com in Dartmouth, a real gent and massively knowledgeable about all things turntable wise. A real Technics turntable specialist, some Hi-Fi magazines use his upgraded turntables as their reference deck, a a really nice guy as well.

    Kingscote Audio in Torquay. Richard is very good to deal with. Unpretentious and approachable chap.

    Thatís good they had some nice turntables on display when I was there. I can only speak from my experience and they always offer me good trade in prices and they do tend to offer honest advice not always what the most expensive . If you have the time itís worth arranging a visit, you always feel that you are not rushed and can spend some time listening to your potential purchases.

    Another shout for, Elite Audio, started with good discussions with Mark about my turntable needs, was offered a decent trade on my own turntable.
    The new turntable subsequently delivered, with Mark visiting to ensure everything was set up correctly, it’s over a 2 hour drive from their place to my house, so not exactly just round the corner.
    Regards

    2 dealers come to mind around the south east area.
    Two different price points, but both seriously focused on excellent customer service.
    The Audiobarn on the outskirts of Harlow definitely worthy of high praise. Some pretty upmarket gear, with service equal to it.
    Sevenoaks Hifi in Cambridge. A more mainstream range of gear, but still give excellent advice & service. They are obviously genuine enthusiasts & the coffee is decent too!

    For us Audiophiles down in Cornwall speak to AcusticStreams, ask for Robbie, there based on Rospeath Industrial Estate, Crowlas, Nr Penzance.

    Where I got my new Rega Elex-R from, nice listening room and masses of Quality HiFi you could spend a small fortune in there without trying, not pushy for a sale and more interested in making sure you get what sounds good to you, nothings to much trouble and they will connect up what ever you fancy.

    Not a really dealer but he does build and sell some cracking amps, I think Firebottle deserves credit for all the help support and equipment mods he has done for me and no doubt many others too. Thank you Alan
