    Have to recommend Martin’s Hi-Fi in Norwich. Been going there years, purchased a few items from them, been to a lot of dems (bit high end for my current budget).

    Steve the manager is particularly knowledgeable and easy to chat to.

    +1 for Dave at Radlett Audio from me. Always completely honest with a no BS approach.

    Good to see other dealers around the UK where people have had good experiences too. Thing is, of those I know who would be in the market for Hi-Fi, their first thought is to buy as cheaply as possible online.

    In my opinion the best thing to do is go and listen, get some expert advice and you'll probably grab yourself a good deal anyway. Not worth treating a Hi-Fi as a race to the bottom on price.

    Another thumbs up for Martin's Hi-Fi in Norwich. I've known them and used them for years. They've just sorted out another Sonos order for me (for a client). Always excellent to deal with.
