    Hey folks, the weeks keep ticking by, with this blog post taking us up to the 2 nd of June. We’ve got a slightly shorter week in front of us, due to the bank holiday weekend, but it’s still going to be a crazy busy week!

    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…

    Tuesday 29th May

    After returning from a nice bank holiday weekend, we hit the road straight away with a trip to Droitwich Spa in Worcestershire to home audition a pair of PMC Twenty5 23 speakers. We’ll have a new pair of Twenty5 23 speakers in the van too, just incase the customer decides he wants a pair.

    Once the home audition is finished, we’ll head further south to Bristol, this time to install a pair of PMC Twenty5 26 speakers.

    After the miles racked up and work done on Tuesday, we’ll spend the night in a hotel.

    As already mentioned we'll be setting off back to Hull from a hotel, but we have a stop to make on the way in Cheltenham where we are installing a Innuos Zenith server. We are also supplying a M2Tech Hiface which is a USB to coax converter, as well as a Chord Shawline digital interconnect, this will allow our customer to connect the Zenith to his existing DAC.

At the heart of the system will be the AVM Evolution CS 5.2 Streaming CD-Receiver a fantastically versatile one box solution!

    Hey everyone, sorry we’ve missed out on a few weekly updates recently. We’ve had one member of staff get married and one have a baby which meant some of the boys have been out of the store and the blog posting had to take a little back seat until we got back to our full compliment. But now everyone is back, the weekly posts can continue!

    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 30th July

    We start the week with an instore demo. This customer is looking to purchase some new speakers for his Devialet 1000 Pro and has expressed some interest in the PMC IB2SE. This is a fantastic high end demo to start the week off, and we can’t wait to set it up. We will also be using the Innuos Zenith streamer as the source and Chord Signature cabling throughout.


    Tuesday 31st July

    This is an important day for anyone looking to purchase any PMC Speakers in the near future. Unfortunately, due to rising prices in costs of materials and manufacturing PMC are having to rise some of their prices from August 1 st, please feel free to get in touch to discuss how certain products are affected.

    A home audition is booked in on Tuesday. We are North West over to Warrington to leave a pair of Bryston 28B3 power amplifiers with a customer. This person is looking to make the switch from their existing Mark Levinson mono power amplifiers.

    Wednesday 1st August

    We have a midweek demonstration on Wednesday. This customer is looking for a vinyl based system around for five to six thousand pounds, with that in mind we will have a system set up and waiting which will consists of Roksan Caspian M2 Amplifier, ProJect 2 Xperience SB DC Turntable and Dali Rubicon 5 Speakers. We will also have a few other options waiting in the wings to try out.


    Thursday 2nd August

    Another instore demonstration is on the cards for Thursday, this time is a comparison of two phono stages. This customer has asked to listen to the AVID Pellere against the Musical Fidelity NuVista Vinyl, we will have these two phono stages set up on a system that consists of PMC Twenty5 26 speakers, Luxman L-507uX II Amplifier and an SME Model 15 Turntable with SME 309 Tonearm and Ortofon Cadenza Black cartridge.


    Friday 3rd August

    A trip over to Leeds is booked in for Friday. This customer approached us looking for a new pair of speakers for his existing Cyrus Signature system, after discussing a few options he opted for the Spendor D7 Speakers. So we are heading over to West Yorkshire to install his new speakers for him.

    Saturday 4th August

    To finish the week, we have a super busy day! Two installations and an instore demo are on the cards. Our first installation is of an AVID DIVA II SP, Project tonearm and AVID cover down in Wimbledon. Once the new AVID turntable is all set up we will be taking a Michell Techno turntable as part exchange. The second job of the day sees us head to Horley in Surry to install a pair of PMC Twenty5 23 Speakers, as well as collect a pair of Rogers LS4A speakers, Marantz CD65 MK2 and Marantz PM45 in part exchange.

    Back in Hull, the in store demonstration is for two pairs of speakers. We are pitting the Spendor D7 against the PMC Twenty 26 speakers, the customer is already a Cyrus owner so we will have all of this waiting alongside a Cyrus CD Transport, Pre2 DAC and X Power.

    Hey everyone, this blog post takes us over the half way point in August! Where is this year going? As always, we’ve got another busy week ahead with plenty of stuff to talk about. We’ve got installs and home demonstrations on the cards, plus some possible news on an up coming in store event….

    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 20th August

    We kick things off with an instore demo. This customer already owns a Leema Tucana Anniversary Integrated Amplifier, Chord Hugo TT DAC and an Innuos Zenith streamer and is looking to upgrade his speakers. We’ll have a few options to run through on the day including the Dali Epicon 2, PMC Twenty5 24 and the Martin Logan Electromotion ESL X Speakers.

    Tuesday 21st August

    Another in store demonstration is booked in for Tuesday. This customer is looking to purchase a whole new system tailored around vinyl.

    With that in mind we will have several options ready to listen to, turntable wise the Project Xtension 10 will be set up alongside the AVID DIVA II SP. For the Integrated amplifier options, we will have the Sugden A21SE Signature next to the Roksan Blak, and for the speakers we will have the Spendor A7 and the PMC Twenty5 23 ready and waiting. The system will be connected using Chord Epic cables throughout.


    Wednesday 22nd August

    We're heading north of the boarder up to Taynuilt in Scotland on Wednesday to install a pair of speakers for a customer. They have opted for the PMC Twenty5 23 floorstanders and are trading in their old PMC GB1i.

    Thursday 23rd August

    A midweek trip across to Barnsley West Yorkshire is on the cards. This customer is interested in purchasing an Arcam AVR550, so we are taking out one to him for a home audition. This receiver 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.


    Friday 24th August

    On Friday we have a local customer who is upgrading their AV Receiver and has opted for the Arcam AVR550. Again, this receiver requires a full DIRAC set up, which our installer will take care of. Making sure the customer gets the best performance out of their new Arcam AV Receiver.

    We are also expecting a visit off Kieran from Henley Audio. 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.

    Plus, we will be discussing details about an in store event we are running with Henley Audio very soon (hint.... If turntables are you're thing, this is the event for you), so make sure to keep an eye on our Blog for updates!

    Saturday 25th August

    A trip across the M62 is on the cards to finish the week. We’re heading over to Wigan to install a Luxaman L-507UX ii Integrated Amplifier. Once the customers new amplifier is installed and our customer is happy we are bringing back a Leema Tucana II amplifier, Naim CD5 XS, NAIM HI-CAP and Rothwell Rialto MM/MC Phono Stage in part exchange.

    Hey everyone, the August bank holiday weekend is almost upon us! This means a slightly shorter working week for us but still busy one non the less. As always, we’ve got in store demonstrations and installations on the cards, plus a trip over to Wales at the end of the week to look out for…

    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…

    Tuesday 28th August

    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 28 th drop us an email or give us a call and we’ll try our best to make it happen.

    Wednesday 29th August

    We have a local install lined up for Wednesday, this customer is upgrading their speakers and have opted for the Dali Rubicon 2, a fantastic standmount speaker the Rubicon 2 offer superb build quality, wonderfully agile and nimble sound, excellent stereo imaging and expressive midrange.


    Thursday 30th August

    Another Hull based install is on the cards for Thursday, this time we are installing a vinyl orientated system for a customer. They have opted for the Pro-ject Xpression Carbon turntable alongside the versatile Cyrus One Amplifier and the Monitor Audio Silver 50 Speakers. This is a fantastic system that offers real bang for your buck.

    Friday 31st August

    We’re heading across to Wales on Friday for two visits to customers, our first stop is in Kilgeddin to set up a pair of Bryston 28B3 power amplifiers for a customer on home demonstration. They already own a great high end system that comprises of AVID Sequel SP turntable with a SME 309 tonearm and Cadenza Red cartridge, Innuos Zenith streamer, Audio Research Reference 6 Pre Amplifier and KEF Blade 2 speakers. This customer currently uses Bryston 7B3 mono power amps but is considering making the switch to the 28B3 amplifiers.

    After the Bryston 28B3 install, we’re heading over to Monmouth to set up a pair of PMC IB2 SE speakers for a customer, they are making upgrading from the PMC Twenty 26 which we are taking in part exchange.


    Saturday 1st September

    Due to the miles racked up and work done on Friday our install team will set off from a local hotel and head on back to Hull.

    Back in the shop we have a demonstration booked in, the customer already owns a Stemfoort SF-200 integrated amplifier and is looking for a new set of speakers to partner his amplifier. We’ll have a few options set up for him including the Spendor D7, PMC Twenty5 23 and Dali Epicon 2.
