Evolutionary and Revolutionary, Q Acoustic's new 3000 series are coming soon!

The 3000 series sets new standards with its luxurious finishes, beautiful styling and amazing sound, all at an affordable price. So whether you're building a Hi-Fi or surround sound system the 3000 series is without a doubt one of the best places to start looking.

 

The new series starts with the ultra compact 3010 bookshelf speaker, shown below in the leather effect finish with 25mm concentric ring dome tweeter and 100mm Aramid fibre/paper bass driver.

The 3020 bookshelf / standmount speaker follows, again benefiting from the new concentric ring dome tweeter and Aramid fibre/paper bass driver, but now a 125mm drive unit is used allowing for a "full range" performance to be achieved. Shown in gloss black below.

The flagship speaker in the range is the 3050 floorstanders, shown in American Walnut. Twin 165mm bass drivers are used to deliver rich immersive bass weight & scale whilst improved cabinet construction means you hear a controlled & precise performance. The 3050's really are an audiophile bargain!

The fun doesn't stop there though, the 3090c centre channel & 3070s Subwoofer can be used to complete an explosive surround sound movie system.

 

Coming soon...

Dolby Atmos & REL 3D arrive at Audio T Enfield!

We've never heard our demonstration room sound quite like this before... Dolby Atmos really does take home cinema to a new level. We have opted for x4 in-ceiling B&W CCM665's with the matching BB6C back boxes for maximum performance.
Pioneer's new top of the range Blu-ray player the BDP-LX88 feeds perfect picture & sound into Pioneer's power house AV Receiver the SC-LX88.
Dolby Atmos isn't the only thing that's caught our attention... REL's Shotgun 3D set up really is a must for any hardcore movie lover, the following paragraph has been taken from REL's website.
"For ultimate spatial coherence, a minimum of 3 RELs (1-main L/R, 1-center, 1-surrounds) may be used to fully realize all the performance embedded in movie soundtracks. REL Shotgun unleashes the basic performance possible in a soundtrack. Shotgun 3D™ extends that benefit to all the building blocks of a theater. By extending the low bass performance of the center channel the entire front half of the theater Is opened up. No longer does the center channel struggle to keep up with the mains. By doing so for the rear channels, the theater is completed and the 3 dimensional reality of film soundtracks takes place as one’s theater is transformed into a sort of 3 dimensional aural holograph."
We liked the sound of this, so have decided to order a custom centre stand from our friends at Hi-Fi racks to sit over a T-Zero, T-5, T-7 or S2. Not only does this look right, it aids with the timing between the centre channel & sub, which accounts for seamless integration with each other. 
We're not sure whats more exciting, Dolby Atmos or REL's Shotgun 3D. What we are sure about, is that we've not heard better! We urge you to come down & have a listen to what we believe is the ultimate home cinema solution.
See and hear what you're missing today!
Please call or email us to arrange a demo

REL & PMC Day!

Listen with us on the 27th of November as we partner REL sub bass systems with PMC speakers for the ultimate in cinema & HiFi systems.

We will be getting up close & personal with PMC's Twenty 21's. Although the smallest speaker in the range, there's simply no question over their ability to convey transparent, controlled & detailed performances, which makes it even easier to forget about the speakers and listen to the music. We will also be seamlessly integrating REL's compact S2 subwoofer to offer even greater dept without masking or shadowing the 21's natural character and effortless detail.

PMC's Twenty 22's will be playing on our shop floor, showing that great sound can still be achieved in a real world, untreated & highly reflective environment, which is made to sound even better with the help of REL's T9 subwoofer.

PMC's Twenty 26's, Centre & 24's will be used in our main demo room whilst we use REL's S range subwoofers to lift & underpin the entire system. We have opted to use a REL S5 on each of the front left & right 26's, a S2 under the Centre, and a S3 on the rear 24's, to achieve a "REL 3D" setup! Dolby Atmos may also be shown in this system. We simply can't wait!

Listen & be amazed this 27th of November, the fun begins 3:00 until 8:00.

 

Myself, John, Jason, Tom & Kevin all look forward to welcoming you to the brilliance of PMC speakers & REL subwoofers.

 

Best Wishes

The NAC202 & NAP200 of Naim's Classic range is now on demonstration

Naim's NAC202 & NAP200 is the entry level pre/power combo of the Classic range, however it's quality & performance certainly isn't "entry level". This combo offers unrivalled realism, accuracy & scale, unachievable from an XS system.

Having listened to this combo for the first time, the most noticeable improvement over an XS system was a major step up in the dynamics of the system. A richer, fuller bodied & more muscular character pulls you deeper into all your favourite music.

However these aren't the only benefits. Rhythm & timing greatly improve which allows for even easier listening, allowing the listener to make more sense of the music and following complex passages becomes almost effortless.

Listen from the "i", "XS" & now the "Classic" ranges here at Audio-T Enfield.

 

And what better time to step up to the NAP200,250 or 300 with our Naim summer saver promotion!

 

Promotion ends August 31st. In-store only.

 

Ask for more details either by phone or email.

The competition warms up, the Yamaha RXV677 is now on demonstration

Yamaha's RXV600 series has been considered one of the best AV Receivers, around the £500 price bracket which has gained excellent press and 5 star ratings from various HiFi magazines for the last few years running, can it really get any better? Join us as we take a closer look at the RXV677.

Like many modern AV Receivers, the RXV677 is equipped with a Swiss Army knife of features including the latest technological advancements. WiFi, HDMI 2.0 with 4K  Ultra HD upscaling, Airplay, HTC Connect, DLNA, MHL, Spotify, Napster, Internet radio, Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master, Yamaha AV Controller app, Yamaha’ s latest Graphical User Interface, CINEMA DSP 3D & Yamaha's YPAO Automatic System Calibration, are all squeezed inside.

150 watts of power means excellent control over most 5.1 sub sat speaker packages upto entry level floorstanding 5.1 systems. Yamaha's RXV677 is a 7.2 capable AV Receiver which means you can run up to 7 speakers with 2 subs or alternatively bi-amp a larger set of front left & right channels with the extra 6th & 7th speaker terminals.

The RX-V677 surrounds listeners in a rich & wide soundstage, natural treble, mid range & bass that sounds smoother than many alternative brands, which you could argue is better matched for listening to music. Movies, live recordings, documentaries & your favourite TV series sound fantastic, again presented with a broad & immersive soundstage.

Pioneer gets set for another round in the ring, the Pioneer VSX 924 arrives!

Pioneer's sub £500 AV Receiver, the VSX 900 series has been amongst our favourite AV Receivers at this price point for some years now. The new VSX 924 certainly hasn't given us any reason to change our minds.

The VSX 924 oozes with all the latest technologies & features including Bluetooth, Airplay & DLNA streaming, Internet radio, Spotify Connect built in, HDMI 2.0 with Ultra HD 4K upscaling, a high quality SABRE DAC, Hi Res audio support inc DSD, Advanced room calibration (MCACC) & iControlAV5 app to name a few.

Pioneer quote 150 watts of power which is perfect for driving budget to high end sub sat packages, we particularly like both B&W's MT50 or Monitor Audio's R90HT1 5.1 solutions. It doesn't have to stop there though, the VSX 924 is a 7.2 capable amplifier meaning you can run 7 satellites with multiple subs, it also means instead of running a 7.2 setup you can assign the 6th & 7th speaker outputs to bi-amp and drive a larger set of floorstanding left & right speakers safely & efficiently. We really like Q Acoustic's 2050i, 2000c, 2020i & 2070i or Monitor Audio's Bronze BX5, BX Centre, BXFX & BXW10 5.1 packages.

Pioneer never fails to impress with its crystal clear detail & deep controlled bass. Music is clean & crisp with excellent timing with a awesomely quite noise floor, however Movies are where this amp really makes it's mark, whether your getting scared watching the latest horror, getting blown away from the latest action, or just having fun watching the latest animation, we have struggled to find a AV Receiver that makes us jump out of our seats, puts that smile on our faces or creates this much laughter quite like the VSX 924.

Harman Kardon HK3770 Stereo Network Receiver - Exclusive to Audio T

We are pleased to announce that Harmon Kardon are joining the Audio T fold in the form of a terrific stereo receiver complete with USB/Optical Digital/Co-axial Digital and analogue inputs; including a MM Turntable stage and priced keenly at £429. Here it is emerging from its box.

If the large number of audio connections were not enough it also has an ethernet connection to access Intenet radio using the Vtuner interface as well as streaming from your Computers or NAS drives on your home network. To complete the remarkable level of connectivity it also has Bluetooth capability allowing almost any sound to be streamed from your mobile devices as well.

Here are front and rear views - It definitely looks better from the front!

Whilst the HK-3770 is supplied with a standard remote control it is also possible to download the Harman Remote app to your Android or Apple device for complete control over your network - see below

The receiver is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity meaning it can stream wirelessly from your similarly equipped mobile device. As you can see below on the left once the two devices are paired ( a simple task) you can stream fom your spotify app for example.

Using a third party DLNA/UPNP control app I was easily able to select my music stored on a Network drive and play it back - As shown in the picture below right.

The receiver has plenty of power sounding effortless at fairly high playback volumes and has a full low frequency extension with a warmth to vocals often missing on components at this price level. Overall it is a great listen and you quickly become engrossed in the music and forget the equipment altogether which in my view is what it is all about!

Harman have a great product in the HK 3770 marrying a simple 2 channel receiver with the latest in connectivity - A rare combination currently.
