HiFi Rose RA280 Integrated Amplifier Now On Demo!

Hi Everyone, Another quick update to say that we now have the new HiFi Rose RA 280 Integrated Amplifier on permanent demo. I think it is fair to say that it's bigger brother, the RA 180 divided opinion on its styling, there was no questions on its sound quality but it is quite a busy looking amp, I liked it but I understand it wasn't the most conventional looking amp but the new RA280 has put that all right and simplified the design and features, it is basically a cut down RA 280 and a

Hi All, So this is big news that was announced yesterday at the Bristol HiFi Show, PMC Speakers are bringing their many years of Active speaker experience from their Pro world to their multi award winning domestic 2 way Twenty5i range, and even better news if you already have a pair of their 2 way Twenty5 or 5i speakers you can make them active by purchasing the Active upgrade kit and swapping the crossover board over. Basically all you need to do is add a DAC with a volume control lik

New Bryston BP-19 Preamp Now On Demo!

Hi All, We have always been big fans of Bryston at HiFi Lounge, they were one of our founding brands and I have personally owned Bryston at home for 15+ years now and I still love it, they walk that fine line really well giving clarity, honestly and insight into any recording but with just enough warmth to keep the presentation natural and I still think in this crazy world of HiFi they give great value for money and peace of mind with their legendary 20 year warranty on analogue products.

Chord Electronics Ultima Integrated Amplifier Now On Demo, Sounding and Looking Great!

Hi all, So here we are with another new product we have on permanent demo, this time from Chord Electronics with their new and stunning looking Ultima Integrated Amplifier. Basically packed with their newish Ultima Tech which has made their recent Stereo and Mono power amps so popular, there really is a very natural presentation to their amps nowadays, still very dynamic and engaging but not as forward as some of the Chord amps used to be, they are really musical and rhythmic hence why

Rega Aya 'Concrete' Speakers Now On Demo!

Hi Everyone, So it has been such a busy start to 2024, which is great news, but we haven’t had any time to update on all the new demo kit we have had through the doors this year so I am going to try and do a daily blog for the next week or so on new demo kit we now have here, they won’t be the longest articles ever but short and sweet snippets as an update. To start with we have the new Rega Aya speakers on permanent demo, I guess their claim to fame will be that the cabinets are const

Bel Canto Now Available at HiFi Lounge, Now This Was A Really Pleasant Surprise!

Hi Everyone, So it has been a while since we have bought on any new brands, I actually made a decision a few months ago to refine our offerings and go back to just focusing on the brands we really love, HFL is now in its 12th year and we have tried a lot of different kit and brands over that time so it is really refreshing to know exactly what brands we want to support and offer our customers but you have always got to keep your eyes, and ears, open as something may come along that reall

Our 2023 Race Car Highlights, Goodwood, Brands Hatch & Silverstone Fun!

Hi Everyone, Just a quick break from HiFi as I thought it would be fun to look back at 2023 and cobble together a quick highlights reel of some of the car action we’ve had this year, been a brilliant year of driving our 2012 Jeff Gordon Nascar up the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed which is a real honour, then chasing a Nascar round Brands Hatch in our 1964 Lotus Cortina at the Ford Festival, surely that has to be a world’s first, then finally getting to race our 1961 Lotus Formula J

iLounge Nascar iRacing League Starting January 9th, Please Feel Free To Join The Fun!

Hi All, So I am excited to say that iLounge Racing along with JP Broadcasting will be starting our own Nascar League starting on January 9th with all races broadcast live on YouTube with full commentary. Now this is something I had been wanting to do for around a year or so now so I am so pleased that we have finally got it off the ground. For me Oval racing is the purest form of racing there is but it is a very different discipline to what we are used to for F1 and Road Racing bu

Hi Everyone,   I just wanted to say a huge thanks for everyone's support throughout 2023 and send out Christmas wishes for the coming holiday, it has been another great year at HFL, don't know where it has gone to be honest, it has been a year packed full of great new product releases, demo's, installs all over the country, many open days, following Bruce Springsteen round Europe, which there will be more of next year I'm glad to say, meeting loads of great people, new and famili

Nice 4 x REL Acoustics Subwoofer Install!

Hi Everyone, It is full on with installs at the moment which is great news, just wanted to share this latest one being a huge advocate of running REL Subwoofers for both 2 channel and cinema of course, this one covered both aspects. We installed 2 Carbons Specials with a pair of Focal Diablo Utopia’s on a Naim 500 system and a pair of S/510’s on an Arcam AVR31 with some older Naim speakers   Needless to say as ever when adding subs it transformed both systems

Western Electric 91E vs The Trafomatic Rhapsody with DeVore Fidelity 0/96 Speakers!

Hi Everyone, Just a quick blog from a demo earlier this week, this is a demo I’ve been looking forward to for some time for one of our DeVore Fidelity O/96 customers. He wants to compare the Western Electric 91E against the Trafomatic Rhapsody, both running 300B’s, I have no idea which way this will go as both brilliant amps but can’t wait to find out   Cheers, Paul.

Magnetar Reference Universal Ultra HD Players Now Available at HFL!

Hi Everyone, No I don't know if it is just me and if I actually have a problem but I have always been excited by Highend Blu Ray Players, probably a little too much to be honest, this all started when Pioneer announced their stunning BDP-LX91 back in 2009, I got one of the first of these in the country and absolutely loved it, then Oppo came along with their truly brilliant players that we really did sell a lot of, I'll always remember the day I received the news that they were pulling out

Hi Everyone, Just a quickie to say that we are all set for our last Open Day of 2023, couldn’t think of a better one to finish on than with PMC Speakers showcasing their incredible Prodigy 1 and 5 speakers, have to say they really do sound amazing, especially the 5's in the Naim room, how they fill such a big space for such a small speaker I have no idea, everyone is in for a real treat tomorrow 👌 Then at the other end of the spectrum we have the Mighty PMC Fenestria’s rocking

Harmonic Resolution Systems (HRS) Now At HFL!

New Rega Naia Turntable Now On Demo, Moving The Game On!

Hi All, So we have been waiting for the new Reference Rega Naia turntable for a while but I am pleased to say that our demo model is now with us and after spinning a couple of albums this morning it has certainly been worth the wait giving that really engaging Rega vinyl sound but with more clarity, depth and openness, my first impression were 'Wow, that is a big sound' so can't wait to try some of my other vinyl I know well later. Basically Rega have taken everything they learnt when

Our UK Audio Show Report + Pictures!

Hi All, It has been a long time since HFL actually exhibited at a show so I thought I would do a quick write up and post a few pictures from the UK Audio Show we are just back from. Firstly it was great seeing so many familiar faces over the 2 days of the show, it really did feel like an HFL open day on many occasions, overall it was a lot of fun. I really enjoy doing shows but they are a lot of work and I'm certainly feeling it sitting here writing this the next day, maybe I am g
