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.

What our customers say

  • Fantastic customer service received from the team at Manchester recently. Wanted to buy a pair of either Spendor A4 or A7 speakers and needed a demo. James and Mike arranged all this for me and it went really well with them giving me their demo room for over an hour listening to both speakers with my own music selection. Got a good deal too including part exchanging my old speakers and I was impressed with the way they kept me informed of order progress and allowed a quick collection. Would fully recommend the Audio T Manchester store.

    David Fregene - 14th February 2021
  • The service received was excellent. Covid had made shop visits impossible so a number of phone calls were made and, after talking over my options a Rega Planar 6 was purchased - the set up was made easier by the shop completing the tracking etc. The sound quality when paired with my Cyrus One HD Amp and Dali speakers is, at least to my ears, exceptional. Highly recommend this product and retailer.

    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).
