Hi Mike and Caroline,

I 'd like to thank you all for the impressive service,  your efforts and dedication.

Kindest regards,

Happy customer Oge

The service, help and understanding given by Mike to ensure the VPI turntable I bought as a surprise birthday present for my husband was amazing.

I had no clue how to buy a suitable cartridge, whether the existing amp would work and how to  set up.

Mike made it all easy and was as excited as I was to make sure my husband was happy with it, right down to some pictures on set up and gift wrapping.

Not quite as excited as the husband was when he saw what was in the box though ....

I would not hesitate to recommend Audio Destination to anyone.  Not really a retailer but rather an enthusiast who cares passionately about making customers happy.

The order was for a bottle of L'Art du Son, which I have finally got round to trying after many years of isoprop/distilled water/wetting agent mixes and a very good detergent mix from Russ Andrews.  So far I have cleaned three LPs, using my Moth RCM.  I had played all three in the last day or so and they were fresh in my memory.  I am stunned!  Just no contest.  The most obvious difference was in the much fuller, deeper and more transparent sound with much improved image, which would be down to increased cleanliness (and these records weren't obviously dirty).  The surfaces had been quiet but with very occasional faint clicks, but I have played six sides without hearing a single extraneous noise.  Incredible!  All these were second hand LPs which have all been round the block, and have marks and light scratches, but those surfaces are silent.

I have been tempted to get a "better" RCM (e.g. Loricraft - can't run to a Keith Monks) but I feel that the Moth Mk 2 Pro is perfectly adequate and it is L'art du Son which has made that difference and saved me quite a wedge.  So Emoji and EmojiEmoji.  It is NOT snake oil, unless snake oil happens to be VERY good ar cleaning records.

Sometimes we should believe the adverts.

Please feel free to use this as a review.

Many thanks for the super fast delivery of the Phonosophie Mains Fuse ,...

Wow , what an amazing audio upgrade , I had read a review recently saying this was the best fuse upgrade , beating the already proven Synergistic Research Red Fuses .. so thought I would try one ,... being a headphone listener I notice the enhancements straight away .. amazing bass , soundstage , depth and clarity.

Phonosophie fuse in your amp power cable = amazing results :-)

Happy customer :-)

Thanks ,

"After many many years listening and buying Hi Fi I have realised that I cannot recollect writing in to thank a Hi Fi shop and its staff or owners.
Well I think it is now about time as having known Mike and Caroline for a few years of and on and having at last bought something from them.
Every time you call or visit the friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic conversation that follows is a breathe of fresh air.
I have experienced some Hi Fi Shops, too many in fact,  that it is obviously a chore to be selling to the public. Hence my recommendation for Mike and Caroline.
You feel a very valued customer no matter if you buy or not.
The ethos of Audio Destination as I see it is to have a happy and contented Hi Fi owner at the end of it all.  
I have over the last four months or so been listening to cable after cable on loan from Audio Destination.
The end result I am an extremely happy Hi Fi owner now with a Hi Fi that has had new life breathed in it.
The courtesy and speed of getting cables to me to audition and listening to my feedback to try and further refine things for me was awesome.
Even if you do not live in Devon or nearby I recommend you find time to visit the fantastic listening rooms at Tiverton and as a bonus you get some of the best coffee you are going to experience anywhere".

"As Mike and Caroline know I am not easily persuaded by the claimed improvements offered by cable upgrades etc.  Many of these may offer marginally improved performance according to measured specification but most rely on the susceptibility of the buyer in imagining that they’re actually hearing something different!  The Entreq passive grounding system is, however, something else.  Mike completely surprised me and a friend when, without warning us, he connected a copper Minimus to a CD player we’d been listening to  and which was playing music we knew well.  Connecting the Minimus (one binding post) opened up the soundstage, reduced residual noise, and made everything clearer and more musical.  Each of us bought a Minimus there and then!  I have not had such an improvement in sound since I upgraded my speakers 6 years ago! I’m so impressed that I have now gone for a copper Tellus allowing me to “ground” my CD player, phono stage and amplifier using 3 discrete binding posts.  Try it!"

A very big thank you to Mike & Caroline for their excellent service.
Communication was second to none, via Email & Phone & Text.
Item ordered & delivered within a couple of days
I bought a Bel Canto Ref 150s Power Amp.
 
Buy with confidence & you be well looked after by both Mike & Caroline.
 
Thanks Mark.
 
 
I was bitten by the HiFi bug over 40 years ago, since I moved to Devon ten years ago I have transformed my system with the help and advice of Mike and Caroline. Nothing is too much trouble for them; they listen to your needs, they advise  - but you never feel pressured to buy! I am now a huge Electrocompaniet fan and have have just purchased a pair of ELAC speakers. A big thank you to both. Anyone who loves music and is looking for impartial advice and a good responsive service could do no better than plan a trip to Audio Destination.

Hi Caroline,
 
First of all, sorry for my poor english (I'm french you know...).
But I wanted to tell you that you are fan-tas-tic.
 
The Orbit 2 was in my letterbox when I came back from my office this afternoon. I didn't have to pick it up from the courier deposit. What always happen because my door code is not written on the package.
 
Furthermore, the communication was perfect. I always knew what was the status of my order.
 
And, the product is terrific. I'm right now listening to my system. The sound was still very good (it's a full Audio Note system). But everything sound know better. Every instrument is at its place and the rhythm is just terrific.
 
Thank you so much.
 
Best regards,
