Hifi Shops by City

Recommended Posts

Auckland

or should that be AV Stores , Dealers , Webstores or Showrooms ?

Not all are suitable for absolute beginners ~

Apart from the obvious JB Hifi Harvey Norman ( Jaycar ? ) & after the closure of Avalon Retail, that leaves :

 

  • Reference Audio Systems - Devonport
  • The Shore Hifi Company - Lake Road Takapuna
  • Audio Reference Co - Lake Rd Devonport
  • Stereotype - 32 Emlyn Place Torbay
  • The Hifi Store - Apollo Drive Mairangi Bay
  • Paul Money - Don Mckinnon Drive Albany
  • AV World - Dominion Road Valley Rd
  • Paul Money - View Road Mt Eden
  • Sound Lab - Bishop Browne Pl Flat Bush
  • Rapallo - 18 Polaris Pl East Tamaki
  • Axent Audio - Portage Road New Lynn
  • Parmenter Sound - Muriwai beach
  • Auckland Audio Exchange - Glendowie TBC
  • Turned on Audio - Onehunga Mall
  • Retrotronics - Web Kingsland
  • Stereoscope - Web Mission Bay

 

Is that about all ? Seems we're pretty well provided for ? Or over Showroom-ed even ?

Northshore Auto Soundz - Rosedale (Don't let the name fool you, they have theatre + HiFi kit)

Computer Lounge - Mt Wellington (LOTS of headphones / powered speakers)

The Sound Store - Newmarket (Bose... but there are the odd pieces of kit you wouldn't expect to see)

Real Groovy - Queen Street (Turntables to amps and speakers... not so much on the advice front though).

 

Then there's the Sonos stockists like PlayTech, heck even PB Tech stocks the occasional HK amp + speakers... as well as headphones and soundbars, so yeah...

Very good Dunners , thus reminding me of other exclusive stores :

Auckland

  • The Bose Store - Lake Rd Takapuna
  • B & O - Teed Street Newmarket

Great to also find a hidden stockist under another name - Auto soundz.

Seems West & South aren't equally represented, Lake Rd , Takapuna / Devonport soo much so.

      Item Condition: Used - Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Mitcham State: Victoria Payment Method: EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Upgraded Further information:  In excellent condition a pair of Australian Whatmough C11 bookshelf speakers - refer to photos.
      2 - way speaker, silk dome tweeter with 6.5inch woofer - front reflex port.
      Finish is a beautiful real wood veneer - Burnt Cherry.
       
      Grills in perfect condition, I've been running these in Bi-Wire but can provide some 12awg cables for jumping if not bi-wiring.
      In general a very relaxing, smooth listen with a fairly neutral response, paired very well with my Marantz PM-17 amplifier.
       
      A great testament to the work of local Colin Whatmough.

      Price: $480 Item Condition: Very good Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Glenwood State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal or PayID Reason for selling: Upgrading to 2 channel Further information: 
      Jamo S606 Speaker Package:

      2 x Floor standers (Bi-wire posts)

      2 x Surround Speakers

      1 x Centre Speaker
       
      Have original spikes and manual somewhere in my house.

      Pick up yourself from Glenwood, NSW or you can organise a courier company to collect it from Glenwood, NSW. Used occasionally only when watching movies as we had another soundbar.


      Can demo speakers with social distancing in mind. Front grills are available - one Surround speaker grill has small mark of paint overspray - nothing on speakers and they sound great.


      From somewhere on the internet "This system is all about energy. It's a powerful communicator, fast and well ordered. There is a good sense of integration across the five speakers, although the main speakers do tend toward boom more than the other three. This makes effects-driven passages take on powerful proportions.


      Diction and articulation, especially from the centre channel, are first rate, although yet again the main speakers have a tendency to 'butch up' dialogue. This is not drastic - it doesn't turn Marilyn Monroe into James Earl Jones - but does add stentorian baritone to some voices, adding even more nauseating self-aggrandisement to Clarkson's voice on re-runs of Top Gear."

      Price: $790 Item Condition: Used - But Near New Shipping Options: Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Caloundra State: Queensland Payment Method: Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Great speakers, super easy to power. No negatives for me, but a tad too large for the room they are in. A regretful sale, but i need to downgrade to a more medium size speaker Ascension (Adelaide Speakers)...........Made In Australia Valve series prototype V1062AQTL 2-way Efficient Floor Standing Speakers Purchased direct from Adelaide speakers on 25th January 2020 http://www.adelaidespeakers.com/valve.html   Local Pickup Only - No Postage Option Is Offered Due To Size/Weight. Sorry.   Condition: Used - But Near New. Can still smell the fresh American Oak! Purchased these from Edward who was a great help in selection of the these speakers. But they are a little oversized in the smaller room. I think they would suit a larger room where they can breath and do their magic down to 32hz. No real need for a sub, but as usual, a  sub is best!   I have been running these on a Yamaha HTR 2071 (cheap) and also Cambridge Audio integrated amp. AXR100. As they are easy to power, both work a treat, so you don't need expensive high powered equipment to run these. I have never used a valve amp, but these are of course suitable for that duty also.
