Meet the team

Paul Mackey came over from Jeffries Hi-Fi after the merger in 2002, he joined the Brighton branch of Jeffries in late ‘80s. He listens to a wide variety of music and enjoys going to live concerts. His current hi-fi system comprises a Linn record player, Naim CD player and speakers and Meridian amplifiers.

John Killick started recommending Hi-Fi systems and setting up turntables for Radford Hi-Fi Bristol in 1985 when Tom Waits released Rain Dogs and joined Jeffries Hi-Fi on returning to Brighton when Talk Talk released Spirit Of Eden in 1988. After a spell working elsewhere he returned to Jeffries in '91 around the time of Primal Scream’s Screamadelica.
As well as listening to music and live concerts he enjoys films and TV box sets.

Chris Smith - Coming from the world of music production, specifically as a mixing engineer and live sound engineer, Chris has an ear for high quality audio. He has been a working musician, which he still does in his spare time. Entering the world of Hi-Fi systems from this angle gives an extra edge in terms of listening, and being able to pick out production and recording techniques through different systems. He has a keen interest in vintage vinyl, with a modest collection starting in the 1950s, but mostly late 60s to mid 80s ‘classic’ rock albums.

    Marchant M - 26th March 2021
  • Great service from John at Brighton Audio-T. I was allowed plenty of time to listen to different amp set ups with my newly serviced Lynn Sondek LP12 in the store (between lockdowns) before deciding on a Naim Supernait 3. John's knowledge is second to none, and I wouldn't go anywhere else for my next upgrade.
    Knight P - 15th March 2021
  • John from Audio T Brighton said the upgraded system was gonna sound good, but it's exceeding my expectations the more I listen, sounds incredible! Excellent advice, deeply experienced knowledge and totally professional gold-standard service.
    Jay - 15th March 2021

    Paul G - 14th March 2021
  • A pleasant experience from start to finish. Initial contact by phone to set up a listening session. They were very accommodating in ensuring my various options were available to hear on the day and patient as I went through different combinations of products, inputs and types of music, in order to assess performance quality and make accurate comparisons. They responded to questions, but there was no hard sell. All we had to do was direct proceedings from the sofa and they did the rest. The prices were competitive on all the products we bought. They were friendly and helpful when it came to getting the items loaded to take home. I recommend them highly.

  • The staff at Audio T are great. They really know their stuff and love to share their knowledge and recommendations, without being pushy. I bought from them via click and collect during lockdown, but I didn't feel I had missed out on anything that I would have got from being in the showroom (although, naturally, I would have preferred to mooch about looking at the gear beyond my price range).,,

    Lacy-Scott F - 17th January 2021

Excellent people to deal with and very professional.
    Mr Booth, Burygate - 2nd June 2019
  • Big up Audio-t Brighton. Thanks to Julian, John & Paul I was contemplating upgrading my LP12 with a Lingo 4 and some Tiger Paw products. However, Julian suggested that for the potential cost outlay being considered, the Linn Radikal ought to be on my list. So, with the assistance and experties of turntablist John, I was allowed the opportunity to home audition Lingo 4, then Radikal followed by Klimax Radikal. Excellent service from John as this entailed repeated returns to the shop for him to dismantle and reinstall/set up my LP12 for each demo. This was a priceless service, as John and team patiently allowed me to listen to the different options on my own LP12 at home and in my system. Any problems or queries, the team are always on the end of the phone to help or just a chat about good music. Special mention to Paul for his help when I rang with an embarrassing question re the Klimax Radikal PSU, "Errr, How do you switch it on?" Anyway, having listened to the Lingo 4, then Akurate Radikal, I read on some forums that many audiophiles were claiming that the Klimax Radikal sounded even better than the Akurate. So with John's support I did some lengthy A/B comparisons with both PSU's at home and found that I agreed with the claims. Strange, as I an not using the Linn Phono stage, just the PSU and DC motor. The above then lead me to consider to push the boat out and try the Keel as well. Suffice to say that I have now upgraded my LP12 with Klimax Radikal and Keel and an buying a shed load of new records. Cheers guys
