    Audio T, Preston are a great bunch of guys. Their knowledge is tremendous and no inane question is too demeaning for them to answer with patience and clarity. I would love to win the lottery so that I could start the whole demo process over again, this time maybe starting with the KEF Reference 3s.I may even be able to replace the monitor I inadvertently killed. Thank you all once again, it was a pleasure.

    The three chaps that served me (it was quiet) were excellent, had a good sense of humour but also were knowledgeable about their products. Price was great, what more do you need

    Staff very helpful. When I had a problem with my new Rega P3, it was replaced straight away with no quibble. Could not be more helpful.

    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.
