I totally agree, While I don't live in London anymore I do remember my dealings with Paul and London Audio. Top notch guy with great knowledge.

I have known Paul for about 30 years. In fact, he dated my ex-wife before I met her.
He is a great guy, very knowledgeable ... and he does a great job with an LP-12.

I have known Paul since the early 80's....many systems, from beginning to some high end stuff. Always great advice and always a class act.

Great guy, haven't seen him in a couple of years I think I will drop in tomorrow to catch up

Paul is the last of the remaining staff of the original London Audio of York Street. I really enjoyed being a customer and had a lot of fun throughout my early audio days and was treated with absolute respect and fairness always. Plays a pretty mean sax too ! Good guy all around.

Great to see this recognition of Paul, although I find it pretty hard to beat Quadzilla's acknowledgement. The dating of the ex-wife is very impressive :lol: .

My memory is failing me, but if other posters are correct and Paul was an original at London Audio my interaction with him dates into the late 70's so pushing 40 years and he has always been a true pleasure to deal with. Glad to see this thread.

He looks pretty good for a guy that old. :shock:

No one is perfect but I've only got good things to say regarding Paul M.

Whats wrong with arrogant? He knows his stuff. Another fellow I dealt with was Kevin. Also top notch but no longer with London Audio. I must also praise Lyle at HiFi Attic and Carl at Spinners here in the Okanagan.

Audiophiles think that anyone who knows more than they do are arrogant. :wink:

I go back to the 70s with London Audio. Always a great store, top notch gear. Dealt with Steve Glickman and his partner John who passed away. Hope London Audio is around for many many more years with their expertise.

John was a great guy too. Steve ... not so much. I played in a punk rock band in those days, and John used to sneak up on me and cut holes in my shirts with a pair of scissors.

He didn't realize that I really didn't care. A safety pin or two and I was good to go. :lol:

If not for the "wink", I'd be thinking that went right over your head (?)
