Between 1978 & 82 I purchased most of my (then) kit from Laskys, Kingston. It was like Aladdins cave for a teenager. They did some fantastic brands in hi-fi at the time. Names ranging from Hitachi, JVC, AR, Wharfedale and such like.
I remember chaining my cycle to a drain pipe outside and walking into this heaven. I bought my first styli for a Goldring G800 cartridge I had rigged to a home-made turntable.
Does anyone have memories of Laskys either at Kingston or some other branch?
