Just a quick recommendation for The Home Cinema Centre in Edinburgh who helped me find my dream stereo!
Based on reviews, my initial choice was an Audiolab equipment and B&W PM1s, but after some help from Nick, I got something much better within my budget ( I had to strech it quite a bit but it was worth it)! No trouble in ordering gear that wasn't in store for testing, and organising audition (I realised how much this was important as it ruled out some equipment that sounded great in the shop). I think I must have tested all speakers within my budget in the shop (Great selection too btw), and Nick was always happy to help.
Quality of service is essential when spending that kind of money, and I found it was so much better than other shops around. Since this was my first "serious" stereo, I really appreciated their advice and patience. I have no doubt I now have the best system for my budget. :clap:
I'd highly recommend this shop to anyone near Edinburgh - I'm actually back again at their shop to replace my cables (And going through their selection again)!
