Thanks so much for your help, knowledge and answering my seemingly endless questions, I am so pleased with the results. It was such a shock for my beloved Arcam to stop working after 17 years and really wanted to buy British still so Cyrus was the answer. The sound improvement of Cyrus over the Arcam is truly amazing. Easy to set up (even for me) had a cd spinning within 15 mins of returning home oh and then looked at the manual! The 3 small boxes have gone down well with Mrs. F - ‘that looks tidier’ being the only real comment! I am sure I will be returning for speaker upgrade and a turntable in the not too distant future,

Dear Marcus, When I decided to install a new TV and HiFi system in our new home I was daunted by the wide range of equipment on the market, and concerned also by the prospect of installing it. Thankfully, I was aware of Martins Hi-Fi via its excellent reputation in the market place and the in-store demonstration events featuring the best suppliers in the HiFi field, and so It made sense to approach Martins Hi-Fi to advise initially on the choice of equipment and then to undertake its installation. I was impressed by the attention to detail, for example, the initial clarification of my needs and the visits to my home to assess the location of the proposed system, and to check on the necessary cabling. The installation was carried out in a friendly and professional way and I was particularly appreciative of the familiarisation session to ensure that both of us were able to enjoy our new TV and HiFi system to its full potential from day one. Needless to say, we are delighted with our purchase and look forward to an ongoing relationship with Martins Hi-Fi into the future. Please convey our thanks to all concerned. With best regards,

Dear Steve, Many thanks for recommending the Koetsu Black Cartridge which I have now got running to my satisfaction. The soundstage is both full and wide and I am sure that is down to the meticulous and professional attitude of Kevin who set the cartridge up for me. He took time to ensure everything was perfect, even to adjusting the turntable speed. It is great to have someone who takes pride in his work and reflects well on your business. Once again, many thanks.

My requirements, existing equipment & budget were carefully considered by Ian at Martins, who was able to recommend a small selection of suitable products & even arranged a loan unit for me to use once it became clear the one I chose was only available on a long lead-time. I am very happy with the choice I made & the service I received. I'm sure I will be using Martins again in the future." Mr S.Woods, Norwich, Norfolk.

Friday, 15th February 2019 The brief was at once simple and complex: a). to replace an ailing SACD/CD player and b). to find a solution to my high-res download playback problems without the nightmares of networking; an earlier attempt (not Martin’s!) was disastrous, and subsequent auditions of potential solutions have proved futile. Ian’s inspired suggestion was to look at T+A Elektroakustik’s multiplayer PDP 3000 HV and Melco’s N1ZS2A Music Library. He generously set up an in-store audition replicating my home equipment where I was able to undertake painstaking side-by-side SACD/CD/download comparisons. That proved revelatory, since the T+A outperforms other high-end SACD players I have heard and, combined with the Melco, is a stunning vehicle for download playback, absolutely nailing the case for 24-96+ files. Over the ten years that I have been a Martin’s customer, I’ve had great support from Marcus and Steve, and now Ian has proved a genius at getting me to the point I so desperately wanted to reach. I am also most grateful for Ian’s exemplary installation - professional, efficient and very considerate. I know that I could never have got here on my own, and it is precisely this exceptional level of expertise and support that keeps me returning to Martin’s. I am hugely pleased with the results which, literally, have to be heard to be believed. G

Dear Marcus Good morning. I want to let you know that I am delighted with the work undertaken by Kevin and supplied by Martin’s HiFi. Roon is working very well on iPad and iPhone. The zones are all set up and working and it integrates seamlessly with Tidal - I am delighted. The Zenith is a lovely piece of kit and I love that it has SSD drives, ripping is much faster than on the Sooloos, but the lack of a progress bar is a change but in some ways reduces stress! May I say that the support from Martin’s is a very valuable part of the service and I tell everyone that Martin’s provide exceptional after-sales and ongoing support that makes dealing with you so superior to buying from competitors- you get a service that values the customer rather than just a bit of kit in a box. The service from Roon is very good - I even got a daily email for the first few days to help me get going and they have an active online forum So in summary, thank you for your professional advice and for the supply and installation. Special thanks to Kevin. I almost forgot to mention, the playback through the upgraded Linn LP12 with the Karousel is awesome. I hope the firm continues to thrive and you all keep safe and well. Very best wishes D

Dear Martins Hi-Fi I wish to thank you, Marcus and Steve, for the excellent and patient service I have received from you over the last year. My new system is nicely run-in now and is sounding gorgeous. I have never enjoyed listening to music as much I am at the moment, and I am surprised at how good my system sounds bearing in mind its reasonable cost. I am sorry to have left Arcam behind after so many years, but I am completely sold on the Cyrus sound and I am looking forward to making further additions and tweaks in the coming years. I would (and do) happily recommend Martins Hi-Fi to any serious music lover!

Dear Elizabeth, One of the beliefs that I have acquired during my life is that people are far readier to criticise rather than to praise! I am therefore writing now to record the excellent help and advice that I have received recently from three of your colleagues. My challenge was effectively to exchange some major equipment I bought some years ago from Martins for a large flat in London (now sold)—in essence a pair of B & W 803s backed by Classe amplifiers etc. In its place I sought something more appropriate to the Norfolk cottage to which we have retired. I felt I was well advised by Steve, who is a pleasure to work with and clearly very knowledgeable, and I am really delighted with the final installation, a naim Uniti Star driving two small but excellent Spendor speakers together with a REL bass unit. The actual installation was carried out by Jack and Kevin, two delightful professionals for whom nothing was too much trouble. All in all Martins did a first class job. I really am delighted with my set-up and you certainly have good colleagues. With best regard, B. PS...As I write this email, I have George Shearing playing in the background on the new outfit, controlled from my i-Pad!

Dear Ian, Thank you for your telephone call today checking up on my installation yesterday. As I mentioned in my telephone call, I am very happy with my new system. Obviously, having fallen in love with it in your shop, I was a little worried that it would not be as I remembered, or sound as good in my home. But once I heard it in situ, I realised that I had made the correct decision so I am very great full for your recommendations. I must say thank you to you for sorting out the original issues I approached you for and to your team for their their patience, helpfulness and professionalism. Please give my sincere thanks to Alex for his hard work yesterday to install both systems, despite some technical problems. He worked extremely hard and showed great patience in answering all my questions. He also, in my opinion, went above and beyond mere installing by making sure that everything was satisfactory and neat and tidy. Since moving to Norfolk thirty years ago I have always bought my hifi from Martin’s HiFi and will definitely continue to do so. It is not often in this modern age to find an independent retailer with such high standards of professionalism and service. Many thanks once again, Yours sincerely,

Way back in 2018 we set out to reconfigure our living room and conservatory, including installation of a new media system and control systems for lighting and blinds, as well as integration with an existing system installed in other parts of the house 10 years ago. After a few false starts I stumbled upon Martins Hi Fi and following an impromptu visit to the shop and initial discussion, it was apparent that Martins Hi Fi was the right fit for us. The time taken to understand our needs and how we intended to use the room and the systems before making any recommendations is greatly appreciated. I have valued the unbiased advice and the opportunity to discuss different ideas at every stage. The project has taken much longer than we expected due to delays to the building work and the pandemic, however, we are finally there in 2021. Marcus and his team have been exceptional in working around all of this, coordinating activities with the builder, architect and other trades and continue to provide support when needed to ensure that everything is just right. Thank you again for the excellent service and making me feel valued as a customer. Kind regards S
