Hello and welcome to the Audio Republic website

Seasons greeting to all our customers. Just to let everyone know, quite a few of our brands are increasing their prices, Naim, already and others very soon.

Here is a brief rundown of the increases, which are approximate:

  • Rega 10%
  • B&W 10%
  • Quadraspire 14%
  • Moon tbc%
  • Nordost tbc%

Also, Naim is increasing its service and repair costs by up to 60%.

If you order before the end of the year, our seasonal opening hours are on the website, then you can benefit from beating these price rises.

We hope you all have a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year.

Karl and Andrew.

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, SME, Vertere and Nottingham Analogue. To complement these fine turntables we offer an unmatched range of cartridges from Ortofon, Audio Technica, Lyra, Kiseki, Dynavector and Van Den Hul.

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 are assuming the mantle of a true heavyweight, their products are superbly built with sound to match. They, along with Naim Audio, JE Sugden and Co, Primare and French digital wizards Devialet form the core of our business. 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 £3,000. 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, another of our favourites, who in turn have VTL for company. Slightly different flavours nonetheless, both make some of the best products available.

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 £3000, although you may disagree after hearing Harbeth, the reference standard for a smooth, uncoloured midrange and silky treble. These are joined by Focal, Monitor Audio and the outstanding Goldenear from America whose designs bring true value back to the marketplace.

Above these in price, we are honoured to represent Sonus Faber with the Olympica range and the tantalising promise of the Homage range to come in 2020. We sincerely hope that you enjoy browsing our website and would be delighted if we could assist you in building a music system to be worthy of it`s name.

Yours sincerely
