Meet the team

Paul Mackey is Assistant Manager and 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.

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
    Mr Jones, Lancing - 23rd May 2019
  • great service
    Mr Graff, Eastbourne - 2nd April 2019
  • The team at Audio T make it so easy with good advise and collection was effortless from the guys in Enfield.
    Mr Pedrick, Pinner - 2nd April 2019
  • Helpful and friendly - guys from rega suggested that I talked to them while I was at the Bristol hifi show - ordered my Rega turntable from them and came back to buy a phone stage from them too.
    Mr Brown, Bristol - 25th March 2019
  • Came hear to buy a new turntable. The guys in store were really friendly helpful and knowledgeable. They were happy to suggest and demonstrate products without being pushy. I highly recommend giving them a visit.
    Mr Wright, Orpington - 19th March 2019
  • Not for the first time, could I thank all the crew at Audio-T Brighton for their help in deciding on and installation of the Naim XPS2 DR. A 90 min demo of various combinations of kit was followed up by John bringing over the new box, re-installing the entire rack and giving advice on some future tweaks. I can also thoroughly recommend the Naim Hi-line interconnect. PS. The Muso Qb has been used every day since we bought it!
    Mr Lewney, Shoreham - 5th March 2019
  • Fantastic to deal with.
    Mr Williamson, Huntingdon - 28th February 2019

    Mr Sivers, Eastbourne - 4th February 2019
  • Fantastic service - helpful, friendly & knowledgeable staff.
    Mr Dobbin, Brighton - 1st February 2019
  • Audio T Brighton continue to offer considered and helpful advice for my Naim system over the years and were an automatic choice when I decided I wanted to add my first analogue source for nearly 34 years. My Rega Plana 6 is settling in nicely . I’ve also discovered the health benefits of sitting down listening and then getting up again to change sides creating a natural break to replenish my glass whilst listening to warm vinyl classic albums. Thanks Julian Barry And Paul.
    Mr Dickens, Lewes - 20th January 2019
  • Always prompt,friendly and dependable.The eventual outcome of any work carried out is,unfailingly,to enhance the quality of a system and so one’s enjoyment of it.
    Mr Power, Eastbourne - 31st December 2018

    Mr Mitchell, Lewes - 2nd December 2018
  • Friendly, helpful service, Even called a taxi ffor me
    Mr Jackson, Brighton - 10th November 2018
  • Audio T are just down the road from Richer Sounds, about 150 yards. But I've never found Richer Sounds that helpful and when I found out that they don't open until mid-day I walked the 150 yards to Audio T which I've always wanted to use. The person who helped was excellent, his technical knowledge was ace and he even price-matched to Richer Sounds - no contest! Thanks You.
    Mr Sandeman-Craik, Brighton - 19th October 2018
  • Audio T repaired and serviced my 30 year old Linn Sondek recently and fitted a new cartridge. Outstanding service and the deck is playing as good as when it was brand new. Really recommend these guys.

    Mr Rance, Steyning - 20th August 2018
  • After my order was placed, its progress was checked smoothly. An issue with a user option part (arm plate), correctly ordered but incorrectly supplied by the maker, was resolved within a day and had been checked and promptly re-ordered when the kit had been delivered to the shop. The guys at Audio-T in Brighton are always helpful and don't try to push too hard for a sale. They have always been ready to discuss someone's audio needs and provide equipment to get as close as possible to this.
    Mr Dive, Brighton - 13th August 2018
  • Very good service from Julian, Paul, and others. I’m barely in the I-know-what-I-like category (beyond that is knowing and liking a good sound system when I hear one) but they were helpful and informative without being in the least condescending.
    Mr Merfield, Hove - 27th July 2018
  • I have been dealing with the Brighton branch for years, I have seen the same staff there for all that time, a really good thing. They are pleasant, very knowledgable and very helpful. They give you a great confidence when choosing equipment. They are always my first choice go to when looking for new gear.
    Mr Hollingbery, Portslade - 4th July 2018
  • Very helpful
    Mr Edwards, Hassocks - 23rd June 2018
  • I’ve been visiting and buying Hi-Fi in the Brighton store (which used to be called Jeffries Hi-Fi), since the early 80’s - and it’s the same team of Julian, John and Paul. Excellent customer service, friendly team and good products. For example, they have ordered products in from manufacturers for me to dem in store and at home which is very helpful. I’ve recommended the store to others and brought a few friends into the store recently who have bought products from Rega, Naim and ProAc. Particularly recommended for buying, servicing or upgrading turntables as they are THE experts at setup. This is a proper Hi-Fi shop! I always enjoy visiting.
    Mr Grundy, Hove - 11th June 2018
  • Excellent, friendly service, extremely knowledgeable, got our LP12 back better than ever. Took their recommendation for a new cartridge and was not disappointed.
