. . . but here goes. You're bound to know of Arcam. Linn too? Add in Chord Electronics, Focal, Kudos, Neat, Nottingham Analogue, Magneplanar, PMC, Rega, Roksan and Trilogy for good measure. Thinking about it, there are quite a few more besides.
Products that can be sold on-line are located on our signalshifi.com sub-site but we would far rather do business face to face.
Two staff, two listening rooms, shed-loads of enthusiasm and masses of kit to offer. We are happy to spend proper time with customers and there is no hint of sales pressure or expectation.
The coffee is pretty good too.
After all these years we still operate from a private address so listening sessions or even just chats are best conducted on an appointment basis. Feel free to drop us an email or ring 01473 655171 or 655172.
Signals is an independent audio and home cinema dealership located in Bucklesham, near Ipswich, Suffolk.
We primarily sell and install domestic music systems. Not just 'nice and clear' ones but systems that convey some of the drama, passion and spirit that makes music replay so captivating.
Slightly old-fashioned values such as service, support, product knowledge and empathy are the order of the day. Even counseling on occasions. . .
We've been around since 1993 and stock a wide range of quality equipment. Our most esoteric product is the new Statement S1 preamplifier by Salisbury based Naim Audio. We are one of three dealers in the UK to have one on demonstration.
If you've never even heard of Naim, there is the possibility that the rest of this site is going to seem like gobbledegook. . .
As well as stocking a wide range of turntables, arms and cartridges we are able to service and update Linn, Rega, Nottingham Analogue and Roksan turntables.
This extends to fitting the impressive Kore and Tiger Paw Khan to the LP12.
For cartridges, we stock, and can demonstrate, Dynavector, Kiseki, Linn, Lyra, Ortofon, Rega, Sumiko and Transfiguration.
Our experience has led to an understanding of good turntable and cartridge matches. Yes, surprisingly, the key relationship is often more between the deck and the cartridge than the arm.
We also have a range of selected phono stages from Dynavector, Lehmann, Naim, Linn, Rega & Trilogy that we are happy to recommend and, of course, demonstrate.
High end audio streaming from Chord, Linn and, of course, Naim really does open the door to a better-than-CD high resolution audio future.
We are happy to explain and to demonstrate how this works and how we can integrate this into an existing system.
There are many ways to access music, though, and the current crop of USB-connected DACs allied to a Mac or PC can make enormous sense too. We have a lot here and can explain over a tea or coffee.
Might need two . . .
Best be clear, we are not a TV shop and our A/V range is quite narrow. We do, however have some very fine products.
For projectors we recommend Sony and have the excellent 4 k VW500ES on demonstration. Fed from a respectable Blu-Ray player (we use a Primare one) via, say, an Anthem MRX710, the picture quality really is cinema grade and the price far less than you might expect.
The Anthem receivers have a deservedly fine reputation and represent excellent value for money. They also dovetail extremely well with external amplification for systems where the front left and right channels are handled by a dedicated stereo system. With Arcam's recent return to form, we have some of their AV kit too, including AV950.
We are fully equipped to offer full home installations. On top of that, system automation and control via an iPad is something we have supplied and installed on numerous occasions.
