A ‘Proper’ HiFi – from £450 – Here at Audio Gold we really love to build bespoke systems. Ideally that means coming to the shop and having a chat and discussing your budget/music/visual preferences and then listening to some combinations of equipment until we find something you really like. It’s only by listening to different things in combination that you’ll really be able to judge. We’ll sit you down with a cup of tea/coffee while we hurry around putting things together for you.
