Bristol dealers
English

I have nothing but praise for the 3 dealers in Bristol that I use regularly.

Richer Sounds - enough said!

Sevenoaks - the chaps in there know me personally now, when I had my hi-fi stolen I did the insurance replacement through them. We had a cash settlement from the insurers, they did me a cracking deal on a complete system leaving me enough for a 51" plasma telly and Freesat HD box, and still some cash left over. They've since done me some deals on speaker cable for the PC system, and a few other bits.

Audio T - needed a 5m phono interconnect for the car (head unit to amp), rang them up, they happened to have one in (QED Profile), said I could have it 25% off as it had been sat in the stockroom for a while. Picked it up and ended up spending ages chatting to the guy about turntables etc.

Used to use Radfords a fair bit too but they sadly closed (although I did pick up my Arcam DV79 brand new for 500 quid when it was still a current model retailing for £1000).

I think Paul Roberts is still there but I've never actually used them. Did pop in once and they seemed pretty helpful and friendly.

It does seem that proper hi-fi dealers really have a passion for the products, not like going into Currys et al!

RE: Bristol dealers

I found Radfords a little bit too late.  Or at least I should say I grew up enough to afford Radfords too late! They did me a fantastic deal on a Project RPM9, two months later they were gone.

 

There is a little place on North Street in Bedminster you could check out too.  Forget what it's called, its in the old Panasonic shop.

+1 for Audio T in Bristol.

And Paul Green Hi Fi in Bath is also pretty good - they'll even make you a cuppa char - although the demo room is too small and has poor accoustics, hence they're happy to let you take stuff away, or they'll deliver/collect, for a home demo.
