Our aim is to open up aspects of listening and comparison, to let you hear the difference,
decide what is right for you, to enrich your musical experience.
It is important for us to understand your preferences, past experiences and equipment, your house/room acoustics, and how you intend to use the speakers in your home. Its useful to talk before we listen so that we can accommodate any specific requirements.
Audioform work from a contemporary studio set in a lovely garden, a good place to relax, and acclimatised to taking time to listen. The building has two main listening spaces, one fairly large, more 'bright' and open plan, the other more 'damped' and representative of many small/medium living rooms. We are happy to set up equipment in either or both so comparisons can be made between differing spaces and systems.
We give you time to listen, without interference, although always available to advise/guide based on your preferences and musical requirements. It really is which product suits you and your tastes rather that which is the superior. Setting up the speakers to showcase their true qualities is crucial. We will take you through this as and when appropriate (see out service section below for more details)
We keep various pieces of equipment for use as sources with our active speakers (Auralic /Lindmann/ T+A / SME / Project/Roon Nucleus/Benchmark/RME)
We also have amplification and quality passive speakers so comparisons can be made with the sound quality of active systems against the traditional format of audio separates. You are welcome to bring with you any source item you may want to use. We use Roon to stream music over a wired network from silent SSD storage devices and from streaming services.
All are welcome to have access to all of our Vinyl / CD / SACD collection and of course to bring your own physical media.
Exemplary customer care and attention. We do not expect you to expect less. Our service level goes beyond that which is agreed in conjunction with the our partner manufacturers. We invest and train in product operation and performance so you have assurance and continued support.
Understanding your requirements. Please arrange with us in advance so we set up appropriately. We take your lead in how best you want to listen and evaluate.
Straightforward and sensible, based on your requirements and experience.
