Olde Worlde Gramophone

We are a (usually) tranquil haven for two-channel enthusiasts amidst the mediocrity of "lifestyle" and "home theatre" madness, with an emphasis on record playing, valve amplification and, now, computer audio. We don't discriminate between sources, it's the end result which counts.

Our skill in selecting and setting up turntables, arms and pickup cartridges is legendary, as is our servicing of the same. When you deal with us, you speak not to a salesperson but to one of the two proprietors who will be setting up and maintaining your equipment.

As regards digital, we have considerable experience of computer optimisation for audio use. It doesn't have to be expensive, and it makes as bigger difference to sound quality as properly setting up a turntable does with analogue.

We are leaving...

...our New Quebec Street shop after almost 17 years and will be having a sale of pretty much all our stock. Some of the higher value items can be seen on our clearance page. More to follow but please 'phone or email in the meantime if we can help with anything you might be looking for. Or, better still, come and visit us as there are a lot of smaller items being sold via eBay which we won't be posting up here but which are in our shop.

Our resident photographer, Les, is gradually photographing everything and you can view his flickr stream here

See you soon...

Opening Times ...

We are usually open every day except Sunday, 10.30 to 5.00. We do sometimes need to close when we should be open, so if making a special journey, please phone or email first.
