...the majority


of home cinema systems selected and installed on a DIY basis (that is without professional input) are performing at way below their optimum level.


Buying or being sold to?


There are dealers around, web based or otherwise, who will sell you anything you are willing to pay for. They may be a bit cheaper but that’s all they offer. Now there’s a carefully selected group of long-established specialist dealers who are totally committed to putting the customer first. Their idea of ‘selling’ is to discuss your requirements, offer their advice, give you the best options, then play the systems for you and allow you to be the judge. You’ll probably be surprised and, almost certainly, relieved to discover how easy it is to see and hear the differences between components and between systems. You’ll be able to make a clear and informed decision about what to buy.





The story doesn’t end there. These shops won’t abandon you once you’ve put your hand in your pocket. They won’t leave you to set up the system you’ve selected as best you can. They’ll install it in your home, make sure it performs to its best, and ensure you’re entirely happy with the way it works. Why? Because a high proportion of these dealers’ custom comes through people who have bought from them before, either directly or by recommendation. It’s vital to them to get it right for you.


Getting the best deal


Unless you’ve got money to burn, you’ll be living with your new system for years. Most of these dealers offer much longer equipment guarantees than provided by the manufacturer, a very worthwhile benefit, but it also makes it in the dealer’s interest to ensure high build quality and reliability. Maybe you could save a few pounds by buying piecemeal but you’ll lose out on the overall package. As far as the dealers are concerned, they believe that taking care of their customers properly is a far better way of doing business than just handing over boxes.


LISTED BELOW ARE 20 OF THE BEST AV SHOPS IN THE COUNTRY.


They have been selected because they are known to do an excellent job in guiding customers towards home cinema systems that will provide years of superlative performance and total satisfaction.
