This can include automated lighting and system control for the entire home.

We look forward to seeing you in store soon, and please feel free to bring some of your own music or movies in. The kettle is always warm!

    Robinson A - 5th April 2021
  • My experience with dealing with both Ade and Nic at Audio T in Swansea has been superb right from the very start beginning with the advice given upon first contact right through to pick,ing u,p my,new,turn,tab,le.,I ha,ve,been,put,off,sli,gh,tly,fr,om b,uyi,ng,bran,d n,ew,eq,ui,pme,nt given that my rega rp6 has developed a wiring fault within the arm within the first 2 months and now have to return to store but again regarding this issue the guys at Audio T SWANSEA were extremely prompt and helpful in the matter and I cannot fault it one little bit. My only gripe with this purchase is with Rega that they don’t offer an in home service to rectify it as its quite a simple fix for them and would add to their reputation i think of being the best turntable supplier around offering exceptional quality and service just like the guys at Audio T Swansea do. Safe to say I’m now gripped by the vinyl revolution and i will not hesitate to visit the guys at Audio T Swansea for any future upgrades. I wont hesitate to recommend you to friends and colleagues alike , i really cant fault the level of service and expertise offered along with the prompt correspondence during all aspects of enquiry and purchase. I’d give 10 stars if i could !.
