Favourite Gigs: Jerry Cantrell on the 2002 Degradation Trip tour in Newport, next I’d say Anthrax on the 2012 Worship Music tour at the Cole Exchange in Cardiff and of course ZZ top on their 2015 tour at the SSE Arena Wembley with special guest Jeff Beck.

Favourite Music: I’d say I have quite eclectic music taste I listen to a few different genres, but I do lean towards Rock and metal being my favourite. I like blues country jazz, electronica, hip hop and even some classical but as I say I’d firmly rooted in the rock side of things. My favourite bands are Van Halen, ZZ Top, Anthrax, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Ozzy Osbourne, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Beastie Boys, Rush, Peter Gabriel and Massive Attack. This list goes on...

    Davis J - 11th April 2021
  • I have used Audio T Cardiff for many years and always found the staff very friendly, helpful and knowlegable. They are always keen to find out what your requiremnets really are and are never pushy. If you as a buyer are a newcomer to hifi or have many years of experience they can always come up with useful and meaningful recommendations because they work as a team. Whether you want to buy something at the lower end or the higher end you always get the same attention. I can't fault them or their attitde. During the lockdown they were always prepared to help and offer advice no matter how simple or difficult the question. Highly recommended

    Burke M - 5th February 2021
  • Excellent service! All staff are knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating.
    Griff - 29th January 2021
  • The demonstration at Audio T of the Naim Muso 2 was marred by the demonstrator being unable to play any of the tracks requested due to server issues. This meant familiar music tracks were substituted by unknown ones, meaning comparisons of reproduction could not readily be made. Luckily, the unit spoke for itself regardless, so I bought it.
    Burgess K - 18th January 2021
  • Excellent and professional approach to responding to not what I may have thought I wanted but more what I actually needed.,
    Smith R - 18th January 2021

    Styles A - 10th October 2020
  • Well I find audio t is the best service ever and the big plus they allow part exchange one of your equipment and also they allowing put your system away until payment is finished and that's the big big plus. Is my no 1 hifi shop I go to the staff is very friendly and they a knowledge and details and what you need. And those guys in the shop are pros thank you again. But would I recommend well yes absolutely is the best hifi shop in the UK no ever hifi shop like this absolutely brilliant.
    Mr Fudge, Bridgend - 31st March 2020
  • I called in on a quiet and very wet afternoon so had instant service. My specification was a bit vague but salesperson guided me through options with recommendations. I was happy with my choice as it was in my budget. I wondered whether it was possible to order a unit on-line and for home delivery to be made as I suspect your shop is closed at present.
    Mr Smith, Cardiff - 30th March 2020
  • Fantastic, efficient service
    Mr Ridgwell, Penarth - 19th March 2020
  • Great customer service. I purchased my first record player and in the store they showed me a step by step set up guide.
    Mr Curtis, Cardiff - 8th March 2020
  • Having moved to a new city an audiophile friend of mine recommended Audio T to me. He has dealt with them for many years. It goes without saying that they are knowledgable. They were friendly and helpful. They let me test two sets of speakers at home and also arranged a demo in the store for me at a pre-booked time. They got an ex demo pair of speakers from another branch for me to listen to. My overall feeling was that the process of choosing and buying my new speakers was a very humane and positive experience. Excellent service, good gear and good people.
    Ms Sarah, Cardiff - 18th January 2020
  • Really great, even offered a retrospective price match - £100 refunded!
