Open day @ Frank Harvey Hi-Fi (Cyrus/Arcam/KEF/Michell/Sonos/JVC/Monitor Audio/Chord Company)
It's that time of year again!!
Instead of our usual Open Evening which is usually held on a Wednesday, we've decided to move it to a Saturday so that more people can potentially attend, and ease the slight overcrowding we've experienced in a few of the previous events, which will allow people a longer audition in a less crowded setting.
So this year, we will be hosting an 'open day' on Saturday on the 21st November.
Manufacturers will include Arcam, Cyrus Electronics, KEF Audio, Michell, JVC, Sonos, The Chord Company and Diverse Vinyl.
Details are as follows:
Our secondary AV room will be home the new Arcam AVR500 AV receiver which will be paired with a multi channel speaker package from Monitor Audio's new Silver RX series package, based on the Silver RX8's.
Our main AV room will be showing off Arcam's flagship AV888 and P777 AV pre/power amplifier powering a KEF Reference system comprising the flagship 207/2 for front left and right, 202/2c for the centre, the monstrous 208 subwoofer, and the baby 201/2's for rear duties. The picture will be provided by the awesome JVC HD950 D-iLA home cinema projector on a 9 foot wide fixed screen.
Our hi-fi demo room will be hosting a 2 channel system - the Cyrus CDXTse Plus with the DACxp Plus pre-amplifier, with four Mono X's which will be driving a pair of KEF Reference 205/2's. Cabling will be provided by The Chord Company.
Downstairs, there will be a representative from Sonos ready to demonstrate their current multi-room system products (ZP90/ZP120/CR200) and also the new Zoneplayer S5, as well as answer any technical queries you may have.
The Michell TecnoDec, Gyro SE and the Orbe SE will all be on display, and one of them will be playing through the Cyrus DACxp with X Power and KEF XQ40 Loudspeakers.
Diverse Vinyl will also be present, with plenty of the black stuff for purchase or pre-order.
As always there will be some nibbles and drinks for attendees (as well as a nice discount for products ordered on the day). Doggy bags not allowed as leftovers are for our lunches for the following couple of days
More details and updates to follow on a daily basis, and as usual, all subject to change! Hope to see you there....
Saturday 21st November 10:00-4:00pm
