Looking for a simple to use stereo system that covers all your needs? This great sounding Vinyl based Hi-Fi system has a high-quality Turntable, Integrated Amplifier and a pair of Bookshelf Speakers along with all the cables you need to get this great little system singing in your home.

When we first opened in December 1978, you could only buy a stereo system. Amplifier brands like Marantz, NAD and Yamaha were the prime movers and now several decades later are still riding the waves of popularity. So with a little bit of back to the future, we've created a system using a Marantz Amplifier and as we did back then, we have combined it with a simple manually operated belt drive Turntable from Europe. In 1978 it was the Dual 505 and today the excellent Pro-Ject Debut Carbon fitted with an Ortofon cartridge.

The variation is the speakers. In 1978 Australia built the massive 12" 3-way speakers, today though it is the Richter Merlin which is a refined design that beautifully complements the smooth sound generated by the Marantz Amplifier.

The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford.

With simple designs and high construction standards, performance has been the... Read More>>

Richter Merlin
Richter - Australia's most successful speaker brand - is breaking all records again with the Legend V range of speakers. The Merlin's have been a consumer favourite for over 20 years and dare we say it but the Series V has gone well above performance expected for the price.


When asked to comment on the new models, Audio Engineer Brad Serhan summed up as follows: "The design brief for the bookshelf models (Merlins and Mentors) was to ensure a high degree of musicality aka listening engagement. This engagement is associated with timing, coherence and ‘foot tapping’. In... Read More>>
