Audioflair – A Great Experience

Pierluigi Savina, Informatico

I need a few words to describe Audioflair: great experience!
Adrian is more than a specialist. He’s like an old friend, someone to talk about your musical ideas and always ready to suggest a tailor-made solution for you.
In my case, I was looking for information on Croft acoustics and that was why I contacted Adrian.
At that time, my Rega P3 seemed perfect for my needs.
Now, on top of my Croft gear, there’s also a Gold Note Valore, probably the best turntable I’ve ever had (for my budget).
Thank you Adrian.

Le chiacchierate al telefono con Adrian sono quanto di più interessante e divertente io ricordi nei miei trascorsi audiofili. Mi hanno fatto ritrovare quel gusto della scoperta che avevo nei primi anni ’80, quando giravo per negozi a cercare il mio primo impianto.
Aldilà della composizione tecnica trovata, della quale sono estremamente soddisfatto, Adrian mi ha dimostrato il grande pregio di saper contagiare le persone con la sua passione per l’alta fedeltà. E si capisce da lontano che non è semplicemente lavoro.
Fosse anche solo per questo, consiglio Audioflair a tutti coloro che amano ascoltare bene la musica.

”Highly recommended!”

E’ molto raro, come è noto, che uno specialista di Hi fi – e in genere di qualunque servizio – lasci completamente soddisfatti e non mostri pecche. Ma questo è il caso. Adrian Parsons di Audioflair ha mostrato eccezionale competenza, pazienza  e raffinatezza nel mettere a punto un impianto hi end di inaudita – è il caso di dirlo – qualità, sapendo ascoltare le mie esigenze e trovando la soluzione ideale. Il tutto, incredibile a dirsi, a un costo davvero ragionevole per la qualità dei componenti, dimostrando un’onestà, correttezza e trasparenza che sembrano non avere nulla a che fare con il mondo del mero commercio ma piuttosto con quello dell’amicizia. Highly recommended!

“As a complete Hi-fi novice I can thoroughly recommend Audioflair”

As a complete Hi-fi novice I can thoroughly recommend Audioflair and in particular Adrian Parsons.

I usually buy my Hi-Fi equipment second hand buy on this occasion, after much research, I decided to buy a Croft Micro Basic pre-amp and came across Audioflair’s website after Googling for Croft pre-amps so I decided to e-mail them, as you do, on New Years Eve!

Anyway I received a prompt reply from Adrian that day who answered my initial query within a few hours and continued to answer my e-mail questions regarding my set-up and the amp all throughout the day with professionalism and politeness despite the fact that I was only going to spending £400!  Never once, during our e-mail exchange, did Adrian ever treat as anything other than a customer and offered excellent advice regarding the pre-amp’s phono board and my Denon DL-110 cartridge which is a high output moving coil cart.

He assured me that the cartridge would be fine with the Croft, which it is, and he made the entire buying process simplicity itself.

Anyone buying ‘blind’ so to speak will agree that it is important to have complete confidence in the product that you are buying and also in the person who you are buying something from and in this respect I can’t recommend Adrian enough.

The amp arrived promptly from the manufacturer (as advised by Adrian) and was very well packaged and protected.

Adrian continued to communicate with me even after delivery and helped with some technical questions I had when I was setting the amp.

I am happy to recommend both Audioflair and indeed Croft for the excellent service and helpful friendly service.

Thanks Adrian.

“I discovered Audioflair by recommendation, which I find to be the best way, in general, to find quality”

I discovered Audioflair by recommendation, which I find to be the best way, in general, to find quality. Several years ago I was in the market for a system upgrade, but was finding it difficult to discern the truth in the complex hi-end, largely cottage industry hi-fi world.

Those who pay the most in marketing invariably become most well known,  but are not necessarily the best. That is not to say that the big  names are absent when getting advice from is more that  a reasonable and balanced view is given, not clouded by perception and expectation, but judged solely on whether it sounds good. I have bought most of my components through Audioflair, because after weighing up the pros and cons of all the competition in each of the  relevant price points, I seem to come back to Adrian at Audioflair’s consistent philosophy of natural, uncoloured sound using the best choice of tools to deliver it. He gave proper insight into the wonders of serious valves, horns and well made solid state, and the art of  matching them well within budget….all good. Oh, and he is an engineer and inventor too, so things can be upgraded on site! Highly recommended.

“… discovering Audioflair has been a godsend to me”

Name: Doug Haddow

Occupation: Artist

As a somewhat disillusioned Hi-Fi enthusiast, after years of spending money on “5 star equipment” which didn`t perform up to scratch , discovering Audioflair has been a godsend to me, and, I`m sure, also to any other “lost souls” out there trying to get good, honest advice. Your help over the past few years on a variety of Hi-Fi equipment has been invaluable, and my system is now far closer to that which I always desired to own.

The valve upgrade on my Croft pre amp was magic, and at a very fair price (Audiofair price?– Ok maybe not). It made a major improvement in performance, the first of many to follow. Speakers, power amp, cables, all have been spot on, The opportunity to try things out, at home, on ones own system, is an obvious benificial, personal touch, not always available, or  welcomed, by larger companies. So, thanks, and keep on doing what you do.

“Adrian is a diamond geezer”

Name: Nick Wilkinson

Occupation: Musician

As an acoustic musician and occasional sound engineer, I have spent much of my working life listening closely to musical instruments. Adrian has given me the advice I needed to get a truly amazing life-like sound from my home-system. If I’d followed his advice from the beginning I’m sure I would have saved myself several thousand pounds and a lot of frustration. Adrian is a diamond geezer who understands real hi-fi and believes passionately

“I highly recommend him”

Name: Neil Simon

Occupation: The Romantic Tenor

I am a musician and am very particular about the quality of music I listen to.  Adrian at Audioflair has guided me through a number of products to help get to the level that I am happy with in terms of quality of sound and musicality.  He has many years of experience and will be happy to discuss your requirements and tailor the product.  He will also give you time to consider your options and make your choice!   I highly recommend him.

“The service was personal, honest and non marketed”

Name: Rose Wormald

Occupation: Charity Shop Worker

I have a Hi Fi system, which had been unused for around 3 years. I did not want to spend my budget on Tottenham Court Road! and was not too knowledgeable on stereo equipment, so needed advice.

I had the system serviced and with a limited budget of £150, Adrian invested in fantastic, hand made speakers for me. These alone stood alongside many worth 2k, the sound is first class and the speakers look individual, which is what I really wanted.

The service was personal, honest and non marketed, I would absolutely recommend Audio flair and use them in the future.

“thank you Adrian Parsons for a musical experience without rival”

Occupation: Makes bespoke golf-clubs for professionals

Twenty years of madness made sane by subjectivity alone. my mind warped by permutation and choice i took a shot in the dark . i tried to simplify the variables. my then system consisted of 12 boxes,four of which were power supplies. cabling was  expensive and obvious. i listened to music in an environment fraught with danger. navigating the surface trunking essentially voided the east wing of the house. simpler had to be better.

well it was and still is. I now have the greatest listening pleasure without caveat. thank you Adrian Parsons for a musical experience without rival. your approach to music rendition is unique,affordable and incredibly energy efficient. sadly only those that get it will know this. each search is personal and therefore different in direction not destination . I am convinced that your knowledge would help anyone trying to find a musical sound .
