Thanks for your views on the ideal demo experience - now opening 24th November!

11 posts in this topic

Thanks to everyone for their views and opinions here - its very helpful in allowing us to set up the best possible demo space and offer the best service. Just to summarise what we will have when open:

- Two demonstration rooms. One offering sub £1000 a box systems and a larger space offering high end systems £1000 a box and up.

- We teamed up with a local coffee shop to offer proper coffees, cappucinos, latte's or whatever type of coffee takes your fancy, free with every pre-booked demo.

- Comfortable (non slippery!) sofas and clean/easily accessible loos

- Opening hours most days until 8pm so you can pop in after work. We can also stay open later for a demo on request. Its not that we don't have a social life in the evenings, we just love what we do!

- The option to be left alone with a system, bring your own CDs/LPs, and buzz us on an intercom whenever you need help/questions answered orassistance.

- Also, home demos available on request

Overall, we hope to offer the very best high end hi-fi and home cinema demo experience and have obtained stunning demonstration space (pics to come soon).

Book a demo- opening 24th *Central Birmingham*

We can demo anything from our website and will be stocking much more, including Primare, the Choral system from Chord Electronics, Focal loudspeakers, Arcam, Chord Cables and more. e-mail me to book a demo on alex@audioaffair.co.uk:)

I am nowhere near your area, so am unlikely to visit but it looks good.

Good luck, you deserve it for asking the questions! :)

Check out some photos of our new showroom space below :) We have taken over this unit in Birmingham's superb Custard Factory and have arguably some of the best and most exciting demo space in the country. Its not fully stocked in these photos as they were taken some days ago, but they give you a taster of what's to come!

Great to see a new dealer offering real hi-fi for listening to real music.

Good luck tomorrow.

looks fantastic, best of luck with the business.

be aware that open plan/level will restrict simultaneous demo's.

Good point. Its split between the lower room and upper room though with a door inbetween so well insulated for simultaneous demos :) Just the separate third level which is open, which will be is a show area.

Realy does look the business and oh how I wish I was able to pop in as I'm in the mood for a few upgrades. Good luck for the future.

A word of advice though. You'll win no friends by seriously upping the asking price of some of your audiophile vinyl editions. Asking £50 + p&p for Led Zep II on Classic 200g is an absolute scandal when it can be had between £14 and £27 from other sources. Just because Classic are no longer supplying them does not mean the rrp suddenly changes. Even the Peter Gabriel vinyl is extortionate as it can be had from the Womadshop for around £15.99 and that includes P&P.
