2nd Anniversary Vinyl Bash in Conjunction With Rega with a 70’s twist - October 18th!Posted 5 days ago Tags Rega, Rega RP10, Rega RP8, Rega RP6, Rega RP3, Rega RP1, Rega Turntables, hifi lounge,
Wow, where did that last year go, it only seems like yesterday that we were preparing for our 1st anniversary and here we are a year later making plans for our 2nd Anniversary. This is a very special one for me as when we were discussing starting a HiFi shop I hoped we would make it to 2 years as I knew we had enough money to pay the rent till then but I had no idea what would be in store after that, luckily everyone has been brilliant and we are still here and fighting fit, so thanks to everyone who has helped support us so far and has made this the perfect job, well that is if you can call it work :-)
So after the success of last years vinyl bash we promised to make it a yearly anniversary event, this year it is made even more special as we are holding it in collaboration with Rega, probably the worlds most Iconic and successful turntable manufacturer around who have been making turntables for over 40 years now. There aren’t many vinyl lovers who haven’t owned a Rega deck at some point in their lives, so Rob from Rega will be here all day to answer any questions you may have and to help spin the tunes all day.
As last year Chris, and hopefully Martin, will be coming along with their great selection of new and used vinyl for sale, this proved extremely popular last year, and ended up costing me a small fortune as I couldn’t resist adding to our collection, if I remember right we went on late into the evening with people still buying vinyl at 8pm, then running upstairs to put it on for a quick listen, be warned, buying vinyl can become a real addiction.
This year we will have 2 vinyl systems setup, downstairs we will be running the excellent Rega RP6 with a Dynavector 10x5 cartridge, a match made in heaven in my opinion, we will run this through the Fono MM Phono Stage going into the excellent Rega Elicit-R amp with a pair of Rega speakers which are to be confirmed. In our upstairs demo room will be running the stunning RP10 turntable with the Apheta cartridge, if you love your vinyl you really do need to hear this turntable, we will run that into Rega’s Reference Ios phono stage then into the Rega Osiris flagship amplifier and a pair of PMC Fact.12’s or Twenty.26’s to finish of the system. Don’t tell anyone but there were rumours that Rega may be able to bring along their state of the art Naiad £30,000 turntable, this is far from guaranteed as none are available just yet but we live in hope :-)
In celebration of our 2nd Anniversary and as part of our partnership with Rega we are offering some special packages for any Turntables purchased on the day, please see below for more details -
1, Buy a RP1, RP1 Performance or RP3 Turntable and receive a Fono Mini A2D phono stage worth £89 absolutely free.
2, Buy a RP6 Turntable and receive a Fono MM Phono Stage worth £198 absolutely free.
3, Buy a RP8 or RP10 Turntable with the Rega Apheta Cartridges and save 50% off the price from a Aria Phono Stage, so £399 instead of £798.

This event last year was great fun, one of the best we did, this year to keep it fresh we would like to try and do it with a 1970’s theme, don’t worry you haven’t got to dress up in flares and wear flowery skirts, but please feel free to do so if you want to :-) It would be great if we can play 70’s music all day as it was such a brilliant era for music in general. I will need some help here though as I haven’t got loads of 70’s vinyl what with being a bit of an 80’s boy. So if you’ve got any vinyl from that era that you’d like to hear through a great system please feel free to bring it in, this can be from any genre from dance, jazz, blues and rock etc.
We will have croissants and coffee for breakfast with nibbles throughout the day, so look forward to seeing as many of you as possible to help celebrate our 2nd Birthday but more importantly to have the chance to play some great music throughout the day.
