    The team at Audio T Preston were very helpful. Andy recommended we try out a couple of systems in their basement room. This is definitely the way to go when buying a system. Andy is very knowledgeable and was happy to answer any question. No hard sell or pushing us down a particular route. We came away with a great system that sounds and looks fantastic! I can't recommend them enough. I will definitely return for any future upgrades or items. Thank you all at Audio T Preston.

    Let loose with a range of amplifiers. It just proves that you need the time and space to listen and compare; the amp's which were recommended by various magazines didn't perform as expected. Even the more expensive ones! Many thanks for the patience of everyone at Audio T.

    Very knowledgeable staff and definitely not 'pushy' in any way. Answered any question I could fire at them. Superb service.

    Staff were generous with their time, allowed us to listen to various turntables with no time pressures during the demos. Gavin went the extra mile to bring around to my home parts from their shop model to exchange the dud part supplied with the turntable. It's a pity Rega let them down hence the four star review as it would have been good to listen to other turntables other than Rega especially when at and around the £1000 level.
