  • As always, the staff were very helpful, very knowledgeable and very pleasant. I would add that when I recently purchased loudspeakers it wasn't made clear that cables were not included. Maybe this is obvious to those in the trade, but I think it should still be made clear to the purchaser.

  • staff at the shop in Swansea have always been very helpful without being pushy ,excellent knowledge and customer service
    Mr Peters, Pembrey - 8th November 2016
  • The Audio T Swansea store offered me some of the best service I have experienced from any retailer in the UK---and I don't just mean audio specialists! The shop has a wonderful "Aladdin's Cave" feel, the staff are well-mannered experts and the products on sale are carefully selected from the very best audio lineups. I purchased a Rega turntable to add into my existing set-up for some analogue listening. I ordered online and had it sent to the Swansea store. Not only was I offered a very substantial discount at that point, on the grounds that the product I was purchasing was a display model; the gentleman in Swansea rounded my extra 'e-club' discount up when I spoke to him on the phone and, when the turntable turned up (no pun intended), it wasn't a display model at all -- it was new and unboxed. The staff cheerily sold it to me anyway at the knockdown price previously agreed, chatting about new pressings of old albums worth obtaining while they did so. The only way I can think to describe my overall experience is good old-fashioned personal service that has all the hallmarks of a high-end retailer. I cannot recommend this company, or the Swansea store, highly enough. Thank you very much once again. And what happened to me and my turntable? ...I took her home to meet my mum and my dad and, well, the rest is history.
    Mr Mann, Swansea - 19th August 2016
  • The team in Swansea have been great, supporting my project. I am building a full home cinema and have asked endless questions. Nic has shown really good customer care and it has always felt I was a fellow nerd and not just some punter to squeeze a sale out of. The demo room has seen considerable action and a final line up of toys agreed. A combination of B&W, Yamaha and Epson is the final design. Something I would not have gone for without the ability to test side by side. The tech know how has been spot on, occasionally proving other 'experts' to off the mark by some margin. My piggy bank may be taking a caning but the end result will be better than I anticipated at the start of the project. See you soon chaps, stage 2 awaits....
    Mr Rob, Llandeilo - 1st July 2016
  • As always the staff at Audio -t Swansea are friendly and knowledgeable. They offer an extremely efficient service. Thank you.
    Mr Baker, Carmarthen - 29th May 2016
  • Nothing to much trouble, great hosts
    Mr Lloyd, Neath - 6th May 2016
  • Great service as always
    Mrs Hinton, Swansea - 18th December 2015
  • great product and great service
    Mr Singh, Swansea - 17th December 2015
  • Always get great service from the staff at Swansea. There is no substitute for listening to a demo in your house using your own system. That is why I keep going back to the Audio T Swansea branch.
    Mr Mcdonald, Swansea - 16th December 2015
  • Can't thanks the team at Audio T (Swansea) hughly enough! Friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable with a wealth of experience they will offer sound advice based on your needs - and supply tea as well! Good old fashioned service. Highly recommended!
    Dr Crawford, Haverfordwest - 20th November 2015
  • Shopping here is nice experience I have not had since my trips to Tottenham Court Road. Friendly and knowledgeable staff with high end products in stock shops like this are hard to find these days.
    Mr Thompson, Neath - 7th October 2015
  • Excellent, product recommendation was based on my current system and how it could be improved in the future. I.e. Not just selling me the latest high priced product, but the product that was right for my system and viewing preferences.
    Mr Todd, Swansea - 21st September 2015
  • Great service!
    Mr Williams, Swansea - 1st September 2015

  • Indifferent
    Mr Parry, Swansea - 18th November 2014
  • Audio-T had very courteous, helpful and knowledgeable staff. It was also particularly satisfying that no attempt was made to persuade me to purchase items too far in excess of my stated budget. The ability to listen to the equipment being considered, with one's own choice of music, was also very valuable. I would unhesitatingly recommend Audio-T to anyone seeking to purchase quality hi-fi equipment.
    Mr Mccarthy, Swansea - 14th November 2014
  • As always the boys went above and beyond to help me get what i wanted. I'm one of those annoying buyers who takes ages to decide on anything, the boys showed patience with me and provided me with advice whenever needed. oh, and they make a banging cup of coffee.
    Mr Smith, Swansea - 7th October 2014
