Faithful Audio Open Day
Our doors opened at 9am sharp for the first viewings by the public on our newly refurbished Faithful Audio demonstration room. We had a total of 12 systems available to demonstrate with Hifi, streaming and speakers from Naim Audio, stereo and pre amp/power amp combinations from Heed Audio, Musical Fidelity’s M6i cd & amplifier, along with 5.1 home cinema courtesy of Anthem receivers along with KEF R & T series.
Also on demo were the brand new KEF LS50 loudspeakers that many of you will have read about in the press recently.
The morning started with demonstrations on Naims Uniti2 ‘all-in-one’ hifi system, all that heard it were very impressed, especially with the iPad app which worked seamlessly to play streamed music. We also used traditional Cd which was equally impressive while playing through our white demo Naim Ovator S400 loudspeakers.
This moved onto a Clearaudio Concept(mm) turntable demo using a Trichord Dino phono stage. The customer listened & purchased two of our stock albums as well as the obligatory record cleaning brush…we were off and running!
At the rear of the demo room we have a small headphone area which was put to use throughout the day, the Sennheiser Hd700 & Hd800′s being the most popular models to demonstrate.
Downstairs customers were invited to have a bite to eat from our selection of canapé’s and sandwiches along with light refreshments from champagne to orange juice and lemonade. A few bottles of wine were opened along with several bottles of Peroni!
We asked all who attended to fill out a survey about their experience during the day-they then entered our amazing competition to win a Naim Nait 5i amp worth £875-and we are pleased to say that all who attended were very happy with the store, the staff and our demonstration facilities.
We also asked if there were any brands our customers would like us to stock that are not currently available and will be working on these suggestions over the coming weeks.
All in all a terrific day, many thanks to those who attended, please watch the website for our next open day details.
