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.

 


Name:
Mike
Experience: Joined Audio T in August 2012 and has now worked in Hi-Fi retail for well over 10 years, covering all roles from Manager to Sales Assistant.
Interests:
Hi-Fi (Obvs), live music, playing guitar and tinkering with computers.
Favourite Gig: I've been to far too many to be able pick one favourite, just like asking for a favourite album really. Special mentions have to go to Punk Rock Holiday 1.6 and 1.7, Manchester Punk Festival, Groezrock 2014 and Rebellion Festival 2010-2012.
Worst Gig: Descendents cancelling their show, as I checked into the hotel I was staying in, having travelled down to London.
Current System:  Linn front end, both turntable and streaming pre-amp into active Dynaudio speakers. Turntable has parts from various manufacturers including, Dynavector, Sumiko, Graham Slee and Heed. Vinyl care products almost exclusively from Tonar. Home built Ubuntu Server with Minimserver for storing digital music.

    Top attention to detail. Shipping carton was damaged between the factory and the dealer. The dealer took note and ordered a new carton before sending out the subwoofers. I appreciate that level of care. Top class.

    Fantastic service from Mike at Manchester, original unit had a fault and after just a phone call he arranged for a replacement to be sent and collection of the faulty item. It's the after sales support that really counts when buying a product.
