Welcome to The Music Room

Proud stockists of Gryphon Audio

System Building Expertise This is the real secret of success that distinguishes the men from the boys. Both neurotic hobbyists and party animals can clearly hear the difference between live and recorded sound, so why (we commiserate) do 99% systems -- from High End to Lifestyle Wireless -- sound grey & soulless? Because many manufacturers and dealers know that merely passing the basic requirements is often enough. But that approach doesn’t work for us. For us “High Fidelity” is a phrase which still has meaning. Our experience allows us to organically match systems: pairing compatible components synergistically with prospective owners and environments, lifestyles & tastes. The variety is endless… as are the potential pitfalls. In our ‘Systems’ section we set out some of our current favourite combinations. Also, choosing your current favourite product from what you own already is usually a good way to start if you’re not in a position to implement a complete overhaul: So, if you love your existing amplifier, then upgrade the speakers to match, then cables and sources accordingly. Match the speakers to your room. Stay consistently with single-end or balanced; all components offering both are truly optimised for one or the other Isolate mains pollution, vibrations, etc and use the most neutral but shielded cables consistently (from one brand). Most cables simply change the sound: the goal should be to reduce noise from many sources, RFI, EMI, mains pollution & mechanical vibrations.

What they're saying about The Music Room

Zingali Client Name 1.15

I'm in audio heaven... Out of the box they sound amazing. The veil has been lifted, the stage improved, the detail enhanced, the silence is blacker, the timber is physics. Truly magical, I want to call you but I can't stop listening!

Zingali HM 2.06

I wanted to let you know finally got the Home Monitors and to tell you they are everything you said they would be and more. I have not heard a speaker sound that balanced in all 3 levels and sound that good near the price. I can think of a few pairs but they are 18 grand or more! We listened to them with 3 different amps before I brought them home and sounded amazing with all combos. The most shocking part was this was right out of the box! Do they get even better with time? Really want to thank you for your advice it's a sin that more people don't know about these because if they just listen they will find them very hard to beat.

Audio Analogue Maestro Amp

Happy Easter... The music pouring out of this system is literally marvellous now with the Duettos on the Track stands - these speakers are phenomenally enjoyable. Best is that the sound is so much better than I can imagine in my head that it keeps any piece of music sounding fresh each time I put it on - it now takes ages for my enthusiasm for a new CD to wane. Many thanks again.

Pathos Endorphin, Inpol and Focal Scala Utopia

At The Music Room we don’t match systems up by what looks good on paper, we listen to all the options. That’s why we can’t recommend this unlikely combination of amp & speaker highly enough! Sure, a big bruiser of a power amp will get you a little bit more bass and ultimate volume but you woul...
