Hey everyone, we’re back after the Easter period with an HiFi action packed week ahead!

The idea is to give you an insight into our working week here at Fanthorpes HiFi. With what demonstrations we are doing in store and in customers’ homes, services we offer, as well as give you an insight into the distances we travel over a working week.

Hope you enjoy the read…

Monday 9th April

We kick the week off with a service call just on the outskirts of Hull, we are taking a Chord Shawline analogue interconnect to use in his system as well as to take a look at his turntable and recommend a phono stage. We have previously set up a Sugden A21SE Integrated alongside a pair of Spendor D7 Speakers and a Chord 2Qute DAC to connect to his existing CD Player.

Tuesday 10th April

Tuesday, we hit the road down to Hunstanton in Norfolk, this time for a home audition. We’ll be taking the Martin Logan ESL9 and PMC Twenty5 26 speakers. These are two brands which we are passionate about and can’t wait to see who comes out on top! The customer will be listening to the ESL9 and Twenty5 26 on his existing Bryston pre power amplification.


Wednesday 11th April

We are heading just across the Humber Bridge on Wednesday on a couple of ‘local’ jobs. First up we venture down to Grimsby to visit a customer who has made the switch to the Cyrus CD Transport, we’re also a Chord C-Lite optical cable to connect to his existing DAC. Next on the list is a trip to Scunthorpe to install a pair of KEF R300 Speakers, we’ll also be taking in a pair of Celestion A1 Speakers in part exchange.

Thursday 12th April

Another home audition is on the cards, this time in Hull. We are taking two preowned amplifiers for the customer to listen to, first up we have a Luxman M600A power amplifier to run alongside his existing pre amplifier. However, he is also considering trading in his existing pre power set up against our preowned McIntosh MA7200 integrated amplifier.

Friday 13th April

An unlucky day for some, but just another busy day ahead for us. This time we’ve got a home audition of a Cyrus Signature Phono Stage and PSX-R2. This customer is looking to upgrade his phono stage to go alongside his Rega RP10.

Saturday 14th April

For the final day of the week we head on down to Kingston Upon Thames to install a high end turntable package. We’ll be setting up an AVID Acutus SP turntable complete with an SME Series V Tonearm and Ortofon Cadenza Red cartridge.


Back in Hull we have another home audition, this customer already owns PMC Twenty series and is looking to upgrade to the PMC Twenty5 series. We’re installing the PMC Twenty5 subwoofer and bringing the Twenty5 23 so he can have a listen in his system too.
