    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

    Mr Read, Hengoed - 9th July 2019
  • I have been buying from the Cardiff branch of AudioT for more years than I care to remember and have always received the utmost help and courtesy. Without exception, every member of staff that I have met have been music and movie enthusiasts and would rather lose a sale than see anyone buy something that they are certain that the customer would not be happy with. I unreservedly recommend them.
    Mr Ellis, Cardiff - 6th May 2019

    Mr Collins, Cardiff - 2nd April 2019
  • Always a delight to visit Audio T, knowledgeable staff, great products, good listening facilities and some great deals to be had.
    Mr Subacchi, Cardiff - 2nd April 2019
  • Great service in fitting NAPSC, another home visit to squeeze it into our rack and sort out the connections (not easy in our set up).
    Mr Parker, Cardiff - 22nd March 2019

    Mr Economides, Barry - 27th February 2019

    Mr Jones, Bargoed - 27th February 2019
  • Extremely helpful. Very patient when demoing comparison amps. Spent a long time listening and switching about. Great service
    Mr Ryall, Caerphilly - 2nd February 2019
  • I decided it was time to change my trusty old hifi separates for a pair of smart speakers in order to free up some space and join the 21 century hifi revolution. The guys at Audio T were more than happy to demonstrate all the options and also suggested that I part exchange my old equipment! I am a now a happy owner of a pair of Sonos 1 speakers and fully recommend the excellent service at Audio T in Cardiff!
    Mr Keys, Cardiff - 24th January 2019
  • Nick gave me good advice on the selection of Amp, Speakers and Sub. He installed the system and helped make sure everything was working including the Sky system and TV. Throughout the process Nick was helpful and responded quickly to emails. He was prompt and efficient during his visits. I would highly recommend Audio-T and Nick.
    Mr Phillips, Newport - 21st January 2019
  • The staff at Audio T were excellent they couldn't do enough to help that's why I keep going back whenever I need to replace/upgrade my AV Systems. And I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
    Mr Smith, Gwent - 19th January 2019
  • Great service. Very helpful staff.
    Mr Wu, Dailian - 7th January 2019
  • Great service as ever from the Cardiff team
    Mr Morgan, Pontyclun - 23rd December 2018
  • Extremely knowledgeable and hyper helpful. Can not find fault with the Cardiff branch’s service on any level.
    Mr Ashley, Cardiff - 17th December 2018
  • Good service and advice from the team on best suited product
    Mr Jenkins, Cardiff - 4th November 2018
  • Excellent service at Audio-T. Thought I knew what I wanted when I went for a sound test, but they gently took the time and trouble to suggest (without pushing in the slightest) that there were perhaps better combinations of parts than what I thought I wanted. Ended up with a perfect combo of speakers and amp that I am absolutely thrilled with. The combined sound suggests a far higher price than I eventually paid. By all means do your research, read reviews and get an idea of what might fit your budget, but don't let it handcuff you.
    Mr Williams, Cardiff - 4th October 2018
  • They kindly delivered the pair of Audiolab 8300MB to me. Although the wrong colour was supplied (by Audiolab) I was not bothered. However when I connected and switched on the equipment there was a terrible howling from one of my speakers that I was afraid would damage them. Disconnecting cables the problem appeared to identify one of 8300MB. I returned this to Audio T and a replacement was ordered for me. I happy to say everything is working properly now.
    Mr Blake, Cardiff - 1st October 2018
  • Excellent service, friendly and helpful.
    Mrs Hall, Merthyr Tydfll - 11th September 2018
  • Excellent staff. Very pleasant, helpful and knowledgable.
    Mr Radford, Cardiff - 7th September 2018
  • What I know about high end audio would fit on a pin head, the staff at Audio T are always helpful, friendly, and give a balanced view of the options. That's why I've been going back there for a decade or more. Thanks guys.
    Dr Thompson, Cardiff - 2nd September 2018
  • Chaps at Audio-T excellent as always. Hefin in Cardiff has amazing ears ! and great listening skills- this is a real talent. The engineer in residence Phil B, of Nytech Audio is a modest audio superhero - who makes amps that sound fantastic. You must check out the CPA402 power and matched pre combo- especially good when run as an active system with modified Spendor speakers- thanks to Audio-T for this massive upgrade
    Mr Clayton, Cardiff - 1st September 2018
  • Can’t fault the service or the products recently purchased from Audio T. Staff were fantastic, very helpful and informative which was just what I needed not having bought a turntable for more years than I care to remember! Overall an excellent customer experience and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this store and it’s staff.
    Mr Lacey, Cardiff - 27th August 2018
  • Audio T is probably the best retailer that I have ever had dealings with. The true measure of any organisation is how they respond when problems arise. I have bought a number of items from the Cardiff branch and on the occasions when there have been faults with the product that I have bought, their after sales service has been first rate. Audio T is now, without doubt, my only source of hi-fi equipment.
    Mr Perry, Shrewsbury - 20th August 2018
  • I buy all my stereo stuff here, have done for years now. They know what they are talking about and can offer genuine advice. They also can order in specific items that are only available from certain dealers, without ramping up the price for this privilege. This is the discerning Welshman's stereo shop!
    Mr Thomas, Bridgend - 5th August 2018
  • Always friendly, helpful and very knowlegable staff in the Cardiff shop.
    Mr Crole, Porthcawl - 30th July 2018
  • The staff are really helpful, and accommodating great customer service! Not the first time we have shopped here and no doubt will return. Very satisfied
    Mrs Pope, Porth - 19th July 2018
  • Great service from the guys in Cardiff, very knowledgebase and no pressure to buy.
    Mr Morgan, Pontypool - 7th July 2018
  • Bought my 1st audio system (NAD)many years ago from Audio Excellence ! 30 years on i went back bought SONOS play 5 - so nice that somethings don’t change - quality equipment & quality friendly professional advice & service - well done AE I’d like to think I may be back in another 30 years !!
    Mr Taylor, Ewenny - 25th June 2018
  • Kevin at Audio T provided a masterclass in Cyrus products. He was attentive, succinct and a pleasure to work with on my purchases. The only negative is Audio T don't hold stock of the upper range (Signature) of Cyrus products. When you're spending over £7,000 it would be nice to take the products away on the day.
    Mr Land, Monmouth - 12th May 2018
  • Once again faultless service from all involved. Really enjoyed the experience of spending lots of money. Great advice and concern that I was happy with the products I was upgrading to.
    Mr Summers, Newport - 8th April 2018
  • As always the team at Cardiff were very helpful. I was able to test the product for an extended period at home before purchase in my system. Highly recommend Cardiff Audio T to anyone that wants a high quality service and products to make a visit!
    Mr Toozer, Cardiff - 5th April 2018
  • The boys in the shop were helpful and friendly - gave a great demo and suggested a number of possible alternatives. Delivery was quick and for the one item they could not supply immediately, they lent me a demo model in the meantime. After sales advice has been very helpful. I would definitely recommend the store. One bad point though - the demo room is scruffy, neads decorating, new furniture and tidying up. Not a very nice environment to be demo-ing thousands of pounds worth of hardware.
    Mr Durnford, Llanreath - 27th March 2018
  • I used the Cardiff branch, and found as always, the staff there really helpful and knowledgeable. Many thanks to Gareth there for his patience and help. Definitely will go back there.
    Mr Chilcott, Bridgend - 23rd March 2018
  • Patient and understanding staff who really know their stuff. My Linn LP 12 has NEVER sounded better and my vinyl listening is now a real joy. Would recommend Audio T without reservation. The repair was completed perfectly and on time.
