Meet the team

 


David -
joined Audio T in 1999
With over 30 years experience in the hi-fi industry in both retail and distribution, David is more from the old school of hi-fi with a passion for 2 channel stereo systems and is never happier than when setting up a turntable! Though streaming has also been embraced especially Hi Res & Tidal
Current System: Linn Turntable, Naim Streamer & Naim amplification
Favourite Music: ranges from Electro to Folk
Weirdest Gig: Zodiac Mind Warp and the Love Reaction at the Boardwalk Manchester, Too many good gigs to remember! Bonus of living in a city with lots of music venues.

Munir - joined Audio T in 2002
First job: straight out of college in 1988, Munir started working for Microvitec Plc. This involved using video pattern generators and light meters to video calibrate very expensive monitors for the Reuters news agency. A precursor to todays ISF video standards used for projectors, plasmas etc, in fact, setting the greyscales and colours "by eye only" was a challenge I enjoyed getting involved in.
Top Bands / Artists: (at the moment) John Coltrane, Bonobo, M83 and Matthew Halsall & the Gondawana orchestra.
Top Films: Rashoman by Akira Kurosawa(still at the top), The Revenant and Lord Of the Rings trilogy.
Favourite demonstration music (and why):
I have more than one really but at the moment Beck’s "The Information” is a stand out.
Tracks on my current playlist: Pakard by Plastikman from the Artifakts album. This track just simmers gently in the background, love it.
Dancing in Outerspace by Atmospere (masters at work mix)
Black Sands by Bonobo
The Message by Cymande
Dreamsters by Tipper
Favourite demonstration movies (and why):
The storm scene from Prometheus as the crew try to get back to the ship - Great movie too.
The motorbike scene in Skyfall culminating in "Bond atop the train" just as the titles start & The Dolby Atmos demo Blu-ray. Both scenes show you exactly what a correctly set up home cinema should sound like.

 


Name:
Mike
Experience: Joined Audio T in August 2012 and has now worked in Hi-Fi retail for well over 10 years, covering all roles from Manager to Sales Assistant.
Interests:
Hi-Fi (Obvs), live music, playing guitar and tinkering with computers.
Favourite Gig: I've been to far too many to be able pick one favourite, just like asking for a favourite album really. Special mentions have to go to Punk Rock Holiday 1.6 and 1.7, Manchester Punk Festival, Groezrock 2014 and Rebellion Festival 2010-2012.
Worst Gig: Descendents cancelling their show, as I checked into the hotel I was staying in, having travelled down to London.
Current System:  Linn front end, both turntable and streaming pre-amp into active Dynaudio speakers. Turntable has parts from various manufacturers including, Dynavector, Sumiko, Graham Slee and Heed. Vinyl care products almost exclusively from Tonar. Home built Ubuntu Server with Minimserver for storing digital music.

    Mr Stewart, Manchester - 29th June 2019
  • The guys at Audio T Manchester were great when I recently bought a turntable. They advised me on how to get the best out of my budget (the Rega 3 with fono mm), set up a listening and gave good advice on care and maintenance. Recommended.
    Mr Wharton, Manchester - 14th June 2019
  • Great service re loudspeaker purchase. A couple of unhurried and relaxed listening sessions narrowed the field and the loan of the chosen pair for home demo was invaluable to ensure the sought after sound balance was delivered on the end of my own system. Installation was carried out with the assistance of a KEF representative which was an unexpected, added bonus. This was for an expensive pair of speakers but irrespective of your budget the staff are keen for the customer to get the result they’re looking for in a purchase and will guide you appropriately.
    Mr Fowles, Sale - 2nd June 2019
  • Great service from Mike at the Manchester branch from start to finish. Very knowledgeable & helpful during selection and demo. Went way above what I expected in getting my system up and running. I'd happily recommend them to anyone (and already have).

  • Service/upgrade on my old Rega planar turntable. Newark wiring and Rega Elys cartridge. New 24 volt motor. I am thrilled with the result. I have always loved this turntable but but it is now a different beast. I had taken my turntable to the Audio T Manchester store having previously asked for their advice on the telephone. The above work was recommended. The work was completed on time, on price and I am most pleased with the excellent results. I have dealt with Audio T several times. I cannot recommend them to highly
    Mr Farrington, Bacup - 17th July 2018

    Mr Whittaker, Hebden Bridge - 30th June 2018
  • Great service and unhurried attitude which allowed me to listen to a range of amps and speakers. As a novice to vinyl this was good and allowed me to appreciate what I was buying. The staff were all generous with advice and information making my final decision easier and more informed.
    Mr Lockhart, Stockport - 28th May 2018
  • Excellent service. I spent a long time in the listening room auditioning. That meant I felt confident that the purchase was right for me. Very attentive staff on hand when needed.

There was a slight issue with the turntable's bearing which was very quickly resolved again by staff at the store. They even helped me repair and package my older Rega RP1 turntable which I had sold on Ebay. They couldn't have been more helpful and professional in their attitude. It's now the only place I visit to upgrade my system. Highly recommend whatever your budget for HiFi.
