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 Audio & 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.

 


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).

    Have paid a number of visits to AudioT Manchester this year, testing turntables, amps and CD players and ended up purchasing all 3 products from them. All the staff are extremely friendly and always have everything set up ready to go when you arrive. You never feel as though you are being rushed. When my new Rega CD player did not work they sourced a priority replacement from Rega within 2 days. Definitely the place to go in Manchester if you are looking for quality HiFi with excellent service and sound advice.

    The real acid test for any company is how they react when there's a problem! All I can say is buy with confidence, any problems will be dealt with! Recently I had a problem with a Naim amplifier and found myself repeatedly calling in the shop for advice and borrowing din cables etc. Despite my constant calling, the staff were always attentive and worked hard to help solve the problem. I have shopped at Audio T Manchester for 25 yrs and will continue to do so.

    First time I have shopped at Audio T and definitely won't be the last. The staff are very friendly and have great product knowledge. They even set my Rega turntable up, so when I got home all I had to do was plug it in.

    Really pleased that I bought my Naim equipment from Audio T. Excellent service and even 5 years later after the purchase (after the warranty had expired) they were more than willing to solve technical problems that had occurred. Anyone looking to make a substantial purchase for high end Hi-Fi equipment in the Manchester area should definitely go and visit them. Ask for Munir and the rest of the team.

    Munir has been brilliant. All his recommendations have been spot on. Our system upgrade is amazing. Thank you.

    The service I've received from the first demonstration through to help and advice with the set up of my hi-fi equipment has been very good.
