    Leema Acoustics Event - Saturday October 13th

    Hi everyone, We are hosting Leema Acoustics on Saturday October 13th, this is a fantastic opportunity to hear a selection of Leema amplifiers in a back to back demonstration format. This is an event we are really looking forward to hosting, with plenty of people taking an interest already.

    The event has been designed with a variety of budgets and systems in mind. So, if you are searching for some new amplification for your system, pop on down and we're sure you'll benefit from attending.

    [​IMG]

    How Will It Work?
    The event will focus around the Leema acoustics range of amplifiers.

    As a reference point, we will start with the entry level Leema Elements Integrated, analysing the differences within the Tucana and Tucana Anniversary integrated amplifier series, before finishing with a demonstration of the reference Leema Pyxis Pre Amplifier and Hydra II Power Amplifier.

    The demonstrations will be hosted by Mick Neil and Andy Moore of MIAN Audio, they will be on hand to answer any questions about the brand and to explain the differences between each amplifier. This is a great chance to hear and learn what design and component changes can bring to the sound of an amplifier.

    All the amplifiers will use the same ancillary equipment - we will have on demo the Leema Sirius Streamer, and will be running a pair of Brigadier Mu.2 Speakers, all the equipment will be connected using Atlas Cables.

    [​IMG]

    RSVP
    Demonstrations will be held on Saturday the 13th of October at 11:00am and 2:00pm, we only have limited spaces available, so we suggest that you contact us to ensure there is available space. Call us on 01482 223096 or email shop@fanthorpes.co.uk

    Wednesday 13th March

    We are heading north of the boarder on Wednesday up to Edinburgh to install our second pair of PMC Twenty5 26 speaker of the week.

    HiFi Plus Magazine Twenty5 26 Review:

    The biggest model in the twenty5 series retains the timing brilliance of the twenty5.22 that I reviewed earlier, but adds bandwidth, dynamic capability and resolution, not to mention power handling to the mix. It is a consistently revealing and musically engaging loudspeaker that makes certain well-regarded competitors seem incoherent and coloured. In other words it’s really rather good indeed. Highly recommended!

    Thursday 14th March

    A ‘local’ install is on the cards for us on Thursday, as we travel over to Huddersfield in west Yorkshire to install a pre owned Chord Electronics Red Reference MK3 CD Player.

    Monday 17th June

    We start the week off with a trip up to North Yorkshire to install a fantastic AV set up. We will be installing the Arcam AVR550 Receiver on a full KEF R Series surround package. This is a system we are sure our customer will love.

    For those that didn’t know to get the best performance from the AVR550, it requires a full DIRAC set up. The overall aim on a Dirac install is to reach the situation where all speakers are working together to create a `sound field` around you, correctly recreating the movies sound effects while not making themselves noticeable.

    Our fully trained installer can use DIRAC to allow this using a high quality specially calibrated microphone and the intelligent room analysis software linked to the new range of Arcam receivers. Full frequency sounds are passed into each speaker one at a time, in up to 9 positions in your room which are then picked up by the microphone and loaded into the software.

    This creates accurate waveform graphs of your own rooms actual effect on your systems sound output. By using the DIRAC software, we can adjust these waveforms to more closely match the original movies own soundtrack.

    The overall effect of this provides a clean, detailed sound where no one speaker is directly noticeable, and your attention is focused only on the movie.

    We are also running a trade in promotion against the Arcam AV Receiver range, allowing you to save up to £1000. Click here for more info.

    Tuesday 17th June

    A free date in out calendar for now! If this fills up at a later date, we’ll update the post and let you know. Alternatively, if you want to take advantage of the services we offer on Tuesday 17th drop us an email or give us a call and we’ll try our best to make it happen.

    We have an in-store demonstration booked in on Thursday. The customer already owns the Musical Fidelity M6Si Amplifier and M6SCD CD Player combination and is on the look out for a pair of new speakers. He has expressed an interest in the Klipsch Forte III, we will have these speakers set up alongside a few other options.

It’s always great to see members of the industry pop in, it allows us to turn our focus to a particular brand serving as a nice refresher course and to possibly learn about any new products on the horizon…

We’ll be taking in a few items in part exchange such as a Chord Hugo, Pro Ac speakers and a Krell amplifier. So be sure to keep an eye on the preowned section of our website for updates!

    We are also expecting a visit from our good friends at MIAN Distribution to talk all things Leema Acoustics. We can’t wait to hear what they have to offer…

    Tuesday 23rd July

    Our good friends at KEF are paying us a visit Tuesday. We’ll make sure the we have a mug of the finest Yorkshire tea ready! It’s always great to see members of the industry pop in, it allows us to turn our focus to a particular brand serving as a nice refresher course and to possibly learn about any new products on the horizon.

    Wednesday 24th July

    We have an instore demonstration booked in for Wednesday. Looking for a set of new speakers we will have the Quad Z3 set up alongside the PMC Twenty5 23 speakers on a Cyrus Pre2 DAC QXR and Stereo 200. We will be using an Innuos Streamer as the source.

    This customer also purchased an Innuos Zen MK3 prior to the demo and is part exchanging his old Zen MK2. While the demonstration is going on, we will transfer his music library from his old Zen MK2 to his new MK3 Zen so it’s ready to use when he gets home.

    Thursday 25th July

    A busy day in terms of visits from manufacturers awaits us on Thursday. First up we have Pat from the Chord Company in the morning to talk all things cable related.

    In the afternoon we will have Maurice from Chord Electronics in. We can’t wait to hear more about the new Chord products especially the new Ultima range of power amplifiers.

    Friday 26th July

    A local install is on the cards for Friday. This chap has purchased the preowned ClearAudio reference turntable with a Basis Vector 2 arm we had for sale. Our turntable guy will also be fitting an Ortofon 2MRED Cartridge to the deck to complete the install.

    Saturday 27th July

    We end the week with an install in Derbyshire. We are heading down to install a Sugden Sapphire pre/power set up. Which we are sure the customer will love.

    Hey everyone, Summer has finally arrived! But that hasn’t stopped us racking up the miles up and down the country. We’ve been as busy as ever and next week is no exception, with trips to the south coast, London and Birmingham just to name a few of our destinations on the cards!

    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.

    If we’re in your area and want to listen to something, let us know and to see if we can pop round and see you.

    Hope you enjoy the read…

    Monday 29th July

    We start the week off with a trip across the M62. We are heading over to Liverpool to install a pair of Monitor Audio PL300 II Speakers. These floorstanders offer a clean, immensely detailed sound. Capable of loads of controlled bass, with huge scale and volume capability.

    Tuesday 30th July

    We have an epic day Tuesday. Three installs and an early start. Firstly, we are heading down to Southampton deliver an Anthem AVM60 Processor, four Cyrus Stereo 200 and three Cyrus Mono X300 Signature power amplifiers for this customers cinema room.

    After the first job is done and dusted, we are heading up to Salisbury to install a Chord Hugo TT2 DAC and Innuos Zen MK3 Streamer. Once the new electronics are all installed, we are collecting a Chord Hugo in part exchange.

    The last job of the day sees us head to south west London to install a pair of preowned Audionet Amp II mono power amplifiers.

    Wednesday 31st July

    Another day, another install is on the cards Wednesday. We are heading down to Lincoln to install a pair of Martin Logan Electromotion ESL X speakers. This customer popped up for a demonstration a few weeks ago, after listening to a few different speakers, opted for the Martin Logans. Once his new speakers are set up, we will also be collecting a pair of Sonus Faber Electa Amator II with matching stands.

    Thursday 1st August

    We have a trip to the Midlands booked in Thursday for a very exciting install. We are heading to Birmingham to install our first pair of PMC Fact 8 signature speakers. This customer is upgrading from a pair of Twenty5 23 speakers. An upgrade we’re sure he will love.

    The Fact 8 signature builds on the balanced, engaging sound and life-like imaging of the original fact speakers. It takes to the next level the fact speakers’ ready ability to accurately reproduce all genres of music via its twin PMC bass drivers, ATL™ and soft-dome treble, a collaboration with precision Norwegian acoustic specialists SEAS. In short, it’s a meticulously engineered, stylish loudspeaker that delivers the optimum output for medium-to-larger rooms

    We have another PMC install in Birmingham on Thursday too. This customer is upgrading from the Monitor Audio Gold 50 standmounts to the PMC Twenty5 21 speakers.

    Friday 2nd August

    We have a local install on the outskirts of Hull to install a pair of Kef R3 Standmounts. The R3 offers exceptional insight and resolution, with a balanced and entertaining sound. As you would come to expect by KEF the R3 are excellently built and finished.

    Saturday 3rd August

    To finish the week off we have an instore demonstration booked in. This customer is looking to listen to several CD Players up to £2000, with that in mind we will have Roksan Caspian M2 CD Player and Musical Fidelity M6SCD.
