Hope for quality audio video.

On a recent trip to London, UK (my first trip to England) I tried to find a digital fibre optic switcher for my stepdad. The local equivalent to Radioshack, Maplins, had a mechanical switcher that we purchased and found it would not work, twice! I thought the first one was merely  defective, so went back and exchanged with the same result.
I knew that London had a fairly healthy audiophile community from reading trade magazines over the years and my telephone search took me to Grahams HiFi. They knew exactly what I was looking for and said they could have a powered, remote operated switch for me in a couple of days. We got a call the next day to tell me it had arrived.
A short cab ride later and a search down a hidden alley, we arrived at Grahams. I had no doubt that this switch would work as I noticed the CEDIA (Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association) on the front door.
As we entered the showroom we were greeted by an array of Bowers and Wilkins speakers and Naim electronics!

Even a Linn Sondek LP12, one of my favourite turntables, yup, a vinyl record turntable!
There was also a multi monitor work station where an employee was designing an automated control system for a design build!
Just like New Brunswick, sometimes the best is harder to find, but well worth the search!
When you are ready for a system that performs above and beyond what you can get from the highly visible, mass market retailers, Wired 1 Consulting is here for you.
