    Hey everyone, where is this year going? it’s coming up to the end of January already! We’ve got another jam-packed blog post to share, with a host of interesting instore demonstrations to look forward to, as well as the usual HiFi installs and home demonstrations.


    The idea is to give you an insight into our working week here at Fanthorpes HiFi. With what demonstrations we are doing in store and in customers’ homes, services we offer, as well as give you an insight into the distances we travel over a working week.

    If we’re in your area and want to listen to something, let us know and to see if we can pop round and see you.

    Hope you enjoy the read…

    Monday 28th January

    A free date in out calendar for now! If this fills up at a later date, we’ll update the post and let you know. Alternatively, if you want to take advantage of the services we offer on Monday 28th drop us an email or give us a call and we’ll try our best to make it happen.

    Tuesday 29th January

    We’ve got a packed day Tuesday, two in store demos plus a visit from one of our reps. The first demo is a DAC demo, with two award winning Chord Electronics DACs in the running, we’ll be pitting the new Qutest DAC against the Chord Hugo TT.

    Our afternoon demo is of a Devialet 220 pro alongside the PMC Twenty5 23 Speakers. A great combination if we do say so ourselves.

    In-between demos we’ve also got our good friends Henley Audio paying us a visit, we’ll make sure the we have a mug of the finest Yorkshire tea ready! It’s always great to see members of the industry pop in, it allows us to turn our focus to a particular brand serving as a nice refresher course and to possibly learn about any new products on the horizon…


    Wednesday 30th January

    We have another in store demo booked in Wednesday morning, this time of the Quad Artera Solus integrated on a pair of older KEF Reference Model One Speakers that we had recently taken in part exchange.

    In the afternoon we have a local install of a pair of Quad Z3 Speakers.

    Thursday 31st January

    We have a Luxman demonstration booked in for Thursday. This customer is looking to purchase some new electronics and has expressed an interest in the Luxman L-505uX II amp and similarly priced Luxman D-05u SACD Player. We will have the Luxman set up alongside a selection of speakers including the PMC Twenty5 23 and Martin Logan Electromotion ESL.

    Friday 1st February

    An instore demonstration is booked in for Friday, of a pair of preowned JE Audio VM60 Valve Mono Power Amplfiers we have. The rest of the system will comprise of Luxman C-700 pre, Innuos Zenith MKII, Chord Hugo TT2 DAC and Klipsch Forte III Speakers.

    Saturday 2nd February

    To end the week, we are heading down to Sutton-In-Ashfield, a customer approached us asking for a home demonstration of the Musical Fidelity M8 PRE and matching M8700 Mono power amps. Of course, we we’re happy to oblige. Already an owner of the Monitor Audio PL300II Speakers, we can’t wait to see what the Musical Fidelity M8 series can bring to his system.

    We also have an in-store demonstration booked in on Saturday, this customer is bringing in his own Krell electronics to listen to and is interested in a pair of new speakers we will have the PMC Twenty5 23 speakers and Neat Iota Xplorers, alongside a few more options ready and waiting.

    Hey everyone, as we head into the middle of march we've got some fantastic installs on the horizon. We are racking up the miles once more with trips to Birmingham and Edinburgh in particluar to look forward to.

    Monday 11th March

    We start the week of with a great in store demonstration. This customer is looking for and amplifier and speakers with a budget of around £3,000. We will have the Cyrus ONE HD and Quad VA-ONE amplifiers set up, alongside some speaker options such as the Quad Z1, PMC Twenty5 21 and Dali Ruibcon 2.


    Tuesday 12th March

    We are taking a trip down to Solihull to install a pair of PMC Twenty5 26 speakers. These speakers are a real store favourite, this is an upgrade we are sure he will love.

    We also have another install in the Birmingham area, this time to install a Chord Electronics Symphonic, once the new phono stage is set up, we will be taking a Lehmann Black Cube Statement in part exchange.

    Wednesday 13th March

    We are heading north of the boarder on Wednesday up to Edinburgh to install our second pair of PMC Twenty5 26 speaker of the week.

    HiFi Plus Magazine Twenty5 26 Review:

    The biggest model in the twenty5 series retains the timing brilliance of the twenty5.22 that I reviewed earlier, but adds bandwidth, dynamic capability and resolution, not to mention power handling to the mix. It is a consistently revealing and musically engaging loudspeaker that makes certain well-regarded competitors seem incoherent and coloured. In other words it’s really rather good indeed. Highly recommended!

    Full Review Here: http://www.hifiplus.com/articles/pmc...g-loudspeaker/

    Thursday 14th March

    A ‘local’ install is on the cards for us on Thursday, as we travel over to Huddersfield in west Yorkshire to install a pre owned Chord Electronics Red Reference MK3 CD Player.

    LUXMAN AMPLIFICATION & DIGITAL FRONT END

    Amplification wise we are taking the flagship integrated from Luxman, the beastly L-509X. A real store favourite. Well-built Japanese tech, we can't wait to show it off.

    For our systems digital source, we are taking the reference Innuos Zenith Statement to the North West Audio Show. Innuos products are the go-to streaming solution for our store, combining ease of use and fantastic sound quality, we are excited to show you what their top boy can do . We will also have Anthony from Innuos with us to answer any technical questions you may have.

    The Zenith Statement will be fed into the Chord Electronics DAVE DAC and BLU MK2 Upscaling CD Transport to deliver maximum performance.


    HIGH END ANALOGUE SOURCE

    Don't worry, we've not forgotten about all you vinyl lovers. For the analogue source we a taking the Pro-Ject Signature 10 turntable with the Ortofon Cadenza Black cartridge, this will connect up to the Musical Fidelity NU-Vista Vinyl Phono Stage.

    We are also hoping to deliver Ortofon Cartridge demos over the weekend with the help of our industry colleague Kieran Pickaver from Henley Audio. We ran a similar demonstration in our store to great success. This is a great chance to hear & learn what a cartridge can bring to a system. We will also have some special offer available over the weekend too.

    Lastly, we will be using Chord Company Signature cables throughout the system.

    Hey everyone, another busy week to look forward to. We’ve got a big AV install on the cards plus plenty of other trips around the UK….


    The idea is to give you an insight into our working week here at Fanthorpes HiFi. With what demonstrations we are doing in store and in customers’ homes, services we offer, as well as give you an insight into the distances we travel over a working week.

    As always, if we’re in your area and want to listen to something, let us know and to see if we can pop round and see you.

    Hope you enjoy the read…


    Monday 17th June

    We start the week off with a trip up to North Yorkshire to install a fantastic AV set up. We will be installing the Arcam AVR550 Receiver on a full KEF R Series surround package. This is a system we are sure our customer will love.

    For those that didn’t know to get the best performance from the AVR550, it requires a full DIRAC set up. The overall aim on a Dirac install is to reach the situation where all speakers are working together to create a `sound field` around you, correctly recreating the movies sound effects while not making themselves noticeable.

    Our fully trained installer can use DIRAC to allow this using a high quality specially calibrated microphone and the intelligent room analysis software linked to the new range of Arcam receivers. Full frequency sounds are passed into each speaker one at a time, in up to 9 positions in your room which are then picked up by the microphone and loaded into the software.

    This creates accurate waveform graphs of your own rooms actual effect on your systems sound output. By using the DIRAC software, we can adjust these waveforms to more closely match the original movies own soundtrack.

    The overall effect of this provides a clean, detailed sound where no one speaker is directly noticeable, and your attention is focused only on the movie.

    We are also running a trade in promotion against the Arcam AV Receiver range, allowing you to save up to £1000. Click here for more info.

    Tuesday 17th June

    A free date in out calendar for now! If this fills up at a later date, we’ll update the post and let you know. Alternatively, if you want to take advantage of the services we offer on Tuesday 17th drop us an email or give us a call and we’ll try our best to make it happen.

    Wednesday 19th June

    Wednesday see’s us hit the road again as we travel down to Haverfordwest, in south west Wales to install a pair of PMC Twenty5 26 speakers, we are also collecting a pair of Twenty 26 in part exchange.

    Our other van is heading across to Sheffield to deliver a pair of PMC Twenty5 23 for a home audition.

    Thursday 20th June

    We have an in-store demonstration booked in on Thursday. The customer already owns the Musical Fidelity M6Si Amplifier and M6SCD CD Player combination and is on the look out for a pair of new speakers. He has expressed an interest in the Klipsch Forte III, we will have these speakers set up alongside a few other options.

    Friday 21st June

    On Friday we’ve got our good friends Henley Audio paying us a visit, we’ll make sure the we have a mug of the finest Yorkshire tea ready! It’s always great to see members of the industry pop in, it allows us to turn our focus to a particular brand serving as a nice refresher course and to possibly learn about any new products on the horizon…

    We’ll also be discussing the finer details of the North West Audio Show.

    Saturday 22nd June

    Fanthorpes HiFi At The North West Audio Show 2019

    After a successful show last year, we are making the trip across to Cranage Hall again for 2019 to exhibit at the North West Show. Spread over the weekend of 29th and 30th June, product wise weve got something of a big coup for the show, plus interesting listening sessions, and some special guest from several manufacturers making an appearance. If your heading to the show, make sure to pop in and see us in the Bentley Suite!

    PMC FACT SIGNATURE UK SHOW DEBUT

    Fresh from their release at the High-End Munich show this year, we are set to have the PMC Fact 12 Signature Speakers on demonstration at the North West Audio Show.

    PMC used the same attention to detail employed during the Fact Fenestria design process to further improve the performance to the rest of the Fact range. The new Fact 12 Signature sets a new benchmark at its price point.


    LUXMAN AMPLIFICATION & DIGITAL FRONT END

    Amplification wise we are taking the flagship integrated from Luxman, the beastly L-509X. A real store favourite. Well-built Japanese tech, we cant wait to show it off.

    For our systems digital source, we are taking the reference Innuos Zenith Statement to the North West Audio Show. Innuos products are the go-to streaming solution for our store, combining ease of use and fantastic sound quality, we are excited to show you what their top boy can do . We will also have Anthony from Innuos with us to answer any technical questions you may have.

    The Zenith Statement will be fed into the Chord Electronics DAVE DAC and BLU MK2 Upscaling CD Transport to deliver maximum performance.


    HIGH END ANALOGUE SOURCE

    Dont worry, weve not forgotten about all you vinyl lovers. For the analogue source we a taking the Pro-Ject Signature 10 turntable with the Ortofon Cadenza Black cartridge, this will connect up to the Musical Fidelity NU-Vista Vinyl Phono Stage.
