Meet the team

David - joined Audio T in 1999
With around 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 Audio.
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.

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.

 


Mike
 - joined Audio T in 2012
Career: 6 years in Hi-Fi retail and counting, covering all roles from Sales Assistant to Store manager.
Favourite Gig: The first year I went to Rebellion Festival in 2010
Worst Gig: Descendents cancelling their show as I checked into my hotel having travelled down to London!
System: Vinyl based and self built PC streaming into a Linn Aktiv system.
Interests: (Hi-Fi). Music, Playing Guitar. Computers. Currently playing around with Raspberry Pi.

 

Simon - joined Audio-T in 2016
Background : Graduated from Salford uni with a Bsc in sound and video engineering, lived and worked in New Zealand for a while, came back in 2016 as a  film/video editor and photographer, I decided this was not my cup of tea staring at a computer all day and working from home. I decided to take a fresh approach to doing my favourite hobby as a job. Never looked back since.
Current System: Tidal streaming going through a Chord mojo via PC
Best Gig: Fatboy Slim or Molotov Jukebox both were just awesome.
Worst Gig: Enter Shikari...(What was I thinking?)
Interests: Cycling, fitness, hikes and walking around the lake and peak district, music (ofcourse), shooting film and editing (for leisure not work).

    Audio T were excellent from start to finish. I was dealt with by an obvious audiophile who guided me through the choices. He listened to my requirements and budget and came up with an excellent package. I tested the odd price online and found them to be right on the money (as it were) price wise. No need to shop around. Audio T recommended a company called TechTone to install everything (ceiling speakers in particular were tricky to get the wires to) and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. All in all a great service and result!

    Absolutely fantastic service! I went into the shop to spend a modest amount on new Hi-Fi equipment - £1500 for a turntable and new amp. I had done some research and tried competitors in the area, but it was the Audio T staff knowledge that really stood out. If one was unsure of an answer there was someone who definitely knew the answer. During the listening time, staff were patient and I was extremely happy with my final purchases, despite being different to my original ideas. Leaving with a fantastically matched Rega turntable and amp was great, as I had not had any experience of Rega before. I would happily recommend Audio T to anyone looking for home audio equipment.

    Despite having a delay in the build and delivery of my pair of P3s, I felt that I was informed and updated in a very customer focused way. The knowledge and approachability of the staff (thanks Simon) was excellent even to the point of helping to walk the kit to my car. Much appreciated.

    Munir, thank you for your time the other day with the new Arcam R Head amp, great service and money well spent. Will call back for the HD800s if the 650's just don't cut the mustard. Many thanks!

    Very helpful staff - they had the speakers up and running on my arrival, and had a varied choice for me to listen to. I went up the price range when I finally decided to purchase and at no time felt under any pressure. Easy going and relaxed atmosphere. When I change CD players I think I'll be heading in their direction.

    Dave the Manager was brilliant setting up a demonstration, helping me choose a pre-amp and setting the deck up at my home. I cannot rate this service level high enough, absolutely mega. Not sure why people buy Hi-Fi at any other store in the Manchester area.
