Live Music Event At The Norwegian Church Cardiff Featuring Spendor And Nytech

We love a music event here at Audio T Cardiff and this October we are holding our best yet! Held at the iconic Norwegian Church in Cardiff Bay there will be an evening of live music and of course a chance to listen to some stunning Hi-Fi.

The event starts at 7pm on Thursday the 6th of October and we will have the Welsh debut of Spendor's brand new D9 loudspeakers being driven by the excellent Nytech CP202 Pre-amplifier and CPA402 power amplifier. We will be listening to the equipment using the new Project classic turntable as well as high resolution streaming as sources and will be playing a selection of music to really show off what the system can do.

As an extra treat live music will be provided by renowned Cardiff musicians Erin Williams-Jones and Cat Vonhausenberg. We also have an former BBC sound engineer recording the duo so we can play it back through the Hi-Fi to look at how close a good system can get to live sound.

There is no cost to get into the venue so please feel free to come along for an enjoyable night of music. Any questions about the event at all please get in contact with us at the shop.

It's A Classic Pro-ject Turntable Unboxing And Set Up At Audio T Preston

The aptly named Pro-Ject “Classic” has been made to celebrate Pro-Ject's 25th anniversary and is a fusion of modern technology and traditional design.

At first glance you would be forgiven for thinking that this is a photo of a Thorens or a Linn turntable from back in the swinging 60's, it is however one of the latest offerings from Pro-Ject Audio.


This new turntable sports a dual plinth design which allows the motor to sit separately from the bearing and tonearm. This helps to greatly reduce unwanted electrical and mechanical noise..

Instead of the bouncy spring loaded isolation of the traditional designs, Pro-Ject have employed “Thermo-Plastic Elastomers” to separate the two plinths. This resonance damping material can also be found lining the aluminium platter.

The Classic also has a new tonearm design made from a combination of carbon fibre and aluminium. It comes pre fitted with the Ortofon 2M Silver moving magnet cartridge an is available in three colours , eucalyptus (black) , rosenut and walnut.

All in all this is a really good looking turntable with fantastic sound quality. Don't believe us? Why not come and see for yourself. Give us a call and book your demonstration today.

Project Celebrate Their 25th Anniversary With The New Classic Turntable

Pro-ject's much anticipated 'classic' turntable is here and it has quickly become one of our favorites at the Cardiff store.

On the year of their 25th anniversary project have unveiled the 'Classic'. Taking inspiration from some famous turntable designs of the past, the Classic is nothing short of gorgeous to look at. Sat on a stunning wooden plinth available in Eucalyptus, Rosenut or Walnut, the turntable reeks of class and sophistication. But don't let the retro looks fool you the classic employs some very modern and original technology and materials that mean it has plenty to offer sonically.

There's a lot to talk about with the turntable, starting with its two-plinth design. Usually with this kind of setup the two plinths would be kept suspended from each other with springs, however the Classic utilises Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE) to isolate the sub-chassis instead. This material is less noisy than springs and provides excellent isolation between the motor and the tonearm, reducing interference. This is all topped off with a beautifully machined aluminum platter.

Speaking of the tonearm, it's a brand new design, the arm tube is made from aluminium, which improves damping and grounding , which is then wrapped in carbon fibre which keeps the arm light but solid. The bearing is also new having been sourced from Japan and has an extremely high tolerance. To top it off the fantastic Ortofon 2m silver cartridge is included in the price of the turntable.

We tested the classic in store through the Cyrus Phono Signature phono stage, Nytech CP202 and CPA402 Pre and power combination and then a pair of Spendor A6r loudspeakers. The result was astonishing. The Classic delivered a clear crisp presentation while having plenty of warmth, tight controlled bass combined with a beautifully defined mid range and lovely crisp high end, without being overbearing at all. This is a really musical turntable and an absolute treat to listen to.

We think Project have come up with a real winner here, the Classic is available for demonstration in store now! Please get in contact with us to book a session, it's well worth it!
