What H-Fi 2021 Winners available at the Audio Republic

The Audio Republic is Leeds’ longest lived specialist hi-if retailer, having started life in September 2002. Since that day, many things within the hi-fi industry have changed, however it is still our aim to offer the most comprehensive selection of 2 channel stereo equipment to our customers.

We have always supported vinyl as a serious format for enjoying music. The recent resurgence of interest in both hardware and software has enabled us to offer an unparalleled selection of turntables, tone arms, cartridges and phono stages from the likes of Rega Research, VPI Industries, Roksan,  SME, Vertere and Nottingham Analogue. To complement these fine turntables we offer an unmatched range of cartridges from Audio Technica, Hana, Kiseki, Dynavector, Shelter, Van Den Hul, Denon, Luxman, Rega and Lyra

Vinyl with a passion

Our depth of knowledge in analogue replay spans many years and we take great pride in setting up our customers turntables optimanially. We are always happy to answer your questions regarding cartridge, tone arm, turntable matching.

Home of Rega

The Audio Republic prides itself in offering a comprehensive selection of hi-if products from Rega Research, who deliver outstanding sonics with extreme reliability. Rega Research recent success at the What Hi-Fi Award is testimony to their achievements. We have been offering the full Rega range since our launch in 2002 and our customers love Rega’s products. Rega are just one example in the UK Hi-Fi industry that the UK is still home to innovative manufacturing which is finding success the world over.

Hear B&W’s Best Speakers

As Leeds’ only and exclusive B&W retailer, we are delighted to represent this brand and have the Formation, 600 series, 700 series and now 800 series to demonstrate. B&W are rightly praised for being some of the best loudspeakers money can buy, we would be delighted to demonstrate these masterpieces to you in your home.

Heavyweight Hi-Fi Products

We also represent Simaudio from Canada, who’s brand Moon, is assuming the mantle of a true heavyweight, their products are superbly built with sound to match. They, along with Sugden, Luxman, Audiolab and Naim Audio . We also like our valve amplifiers however, and we stock the fantastic Rogue Audio range, as typified by the amazing Cronus Magnum 3 integrated amplifier, stupendously built and a bargain at £3,500. This amplifier is both powerful and subtle delivering real tangible images between your loudspeakers with the tonal abilities that only a valve amplifier can deliver.

The Best Hi-Fi Products Available

We have long had a relationship with Absolute Sounds, who import Audio Research, a heavyweight American manufacturer of Reference Electronics.

As someone who dislikes bright, hyper detailed loudspeakers so prevalent today, our choices are designed to keep you listening to your favourite music for hours. Proac continue to advance the state of the art in transducers, the D20R has no peer below £3500, although you may disagree after hearing Spendor, with either their modern A Line , D Line or Classic Series.

Above these in price, we are honoured to represent Wilson Audio, with their reference quality and finish. Plus sound that is truly world beating.

Yours sincerely

Andrew Oliver / Audio Republic Ltd

I was looking to buy a Regar P3 turntable and contacted Andrew at Audio Republic who invited me in to review the kit. Andrew spent nearly an hour telling me all about the turntable and other accessories. I was extremely impressed by his knowledge, enthusiasm and overall customer service. This experience was even more enhanced when Andrew asked whether I would like his colleague Carl to deliver the turntable to my house and set it up free of charge. Carl was equally personable and knowledgeable and spent nearly an hour setting up the turntable and chatting about all things audio and music.Audio Republic offer exceptional customer service and I would highly recommend them.

Having the expert guidance of Karl from Audio Republic was absolutely invaluable when choosing the ideal setup for us. There's no hard sell and he really takes the time to understand what works for you and helps you get the most you can from your budget.We spent about an hour and a half in the shop listening to different setups and I'm so glad we had that opportunity because it allowed us to appreciate the difference in turntable performance and know how much power we needed from the speakers for our space.Karl gave us a very competitive quote for the setup and even came over to set everything up for us. We didn't hesitate in trusting his recommendations and we couldn't be happier with the setup we have. We're now rediscovering all our records and are extremely happy with our investment.
