    I have been a customer of Audio T in Preston, for more years than I will admit to. Their service has always been top-notch, friendly but efficient. The Audioquest Nightowl headphones that I recently bought were ex-dem but in pristine condition. As a long-standing customer I was allowed to use them and burn them in before buying them. For a piece of equipment like the controversial Nightowl, there is simply no substitute for a knowledgeable, dedicated Hi-Fi dealer like Audio T of Preston if you want to make the right choice. And I a got a good discount!

    Really helpful. Let me borrow a unit for a week so could really trial the product effectively. Very helpful. Wait time was two months for the product so they gave me the one they had ordered to replace their demo model. Great service and a good price.

    I have dealt with Audio T in Preston for many years to the point I believe they must dread me coming through the door. For many years I have looked for suitable speakers to match my Cyrus system and finally found them when I attended a Cyrus demo at the Preston store. KEF Reference 1's were used and demonstrated over a wide range of different music genres. They performed fantastically and I was really sold on them. Audio T loaned me their demo pair of KEF Reference 1's over a weekend and when I decided to purchase the speakers they let me keep for the fortnight it took for them to be delivered. Ian, Gavin and Andy in Preston Audio T are well acquainted with the products they sell. They are extremely helpful and I cannot recommend them highly enough. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner with hi-fi and relatively knowledgeable about the subject they can suggest solutions to some of the most tricky problems.
