An Incredible turnkey system at an incredible Price Amphion, NuPrime, Auralic From guigou in Oct 16, 2017Oct 16, 2017 From guigou
At first I was worried to buy from someone I've never met, but it turned out pretty well...
Perry has an extremely good knowledge of what is good and not so good in this overwhelming audio world. I learned a lot while talking to him to build my first real audio system.
Contrary to any other person I've talked to in this business, he never complaint about manufacturers he is not distributing. Sometimes he will tell you that from a technical point of you this or that might not be a good idea or a good design, but he will never name the companies doing it. In other words, he is not trying to discourage you from buying somewhere else, but only to share is knowledge.
I end-up buying an almost complete system mainly composed of Amphion Helium 520 and Nuprime IDA-8. The Nuprime IDA-8 has been a revelation to me, it does exactly what I wanted (and a bit more), includes all the connections I wished for and it's still affordable.
What I like the most about the Amphion Helium 520 is that they are still very clear and detailed even at low listening volume. Which is really important for me since I still live in an appartement and don't want my neighbor to hate me right away.
Will they be my last pair of speakers ? certainly not, I am just starting and have a lot to discover. But Perry took the time to listen to my needs and build a system that fulfilled my requirements.
However, everything wasn't perfect. I had two small issues after I ordered everything :
1) This is the most serious complaint and it doesn't concern Perry (HIFI Shop Direct), but one of his distributor which added a pretty long delay to my order. The distributor called me personally to apologizes for the delays, but I still think that the situation was handled unprofessionally by him.
2) After the delay mentioned above, I finally have everything ready to go. Position the speakers, Connect everything and power-up the amp. Surprise, there is a constant high pitch noise coming from the right channel. I let the initial frustration pass by and then I called Perry to explain the situation. He was very helpful and give me a series of test to do at home that will confirm which component is really the faulty one. Once it was done, the replacement component arrived at my home pretty quickly and then I just sent back the faulty one. Everything was handled really quickly and professionally by Perry. It's always a disappointment to receive something that is not working properly, but I am glad the situation was handled by Perry so effectively.

CORE power technologies Amazing promotion on some amazing performers from Hifishop direct From sonicaudiophile in Jun 28, 2017Jun 28, 2017 From sonicaudiophile
I ordered the power cables called The Super Stroke on the Core Power Technologies Website. The delivery time from the time of ordering until I held finally the product in my hands was a little bit to long. I guess to many orders at once caused a little trouble. The product itself is from outstanding quality. Plugs from Oyaide, high quality cable with good insulation make the product a bargain.
Hifishop Direct introduces TDSS Mods for NuPrime and other Electronics Factory Authorized From rasaki in Feb 09, 2017Feb 09, 2017 From rasaki
Hifishop Direct is a top class business. Perry worked with me to find the exact speaker solution for our new place that was pleasing to my ear and not considered an "eye sore" to my new fiancée. I am not saying Hifishop Direct was directly responsible for her agreeing to marry me but I think she saw that I would work with people who would make sure that we were both happy.
Thanks Perry and I hope to do business with you again. It was a pleasure.
Green Mountian Audio CHROMA HX Factory Promotion sale From Sid1477 in Jan 23, 2017Jan 23, 2017 From Sid1477
Dealing with Perry has been a wonderful experience. In my interactions with Perry, I have gained the most from his in-depth knowledge, experience, balanced views, all of which is of course is driven by his passion for music and electronics. And of course the complete lack of product pushing on his part makes dealing with him an altogether wonderful experience.
He has been very prompt and accurate in his communication. Honest and forthright about his services and pricing. No hidden charges or unexpected hassles. Product and services delivered as promised, on time and at agreed price.
I strongly recommend readers at least seek Perry's views on whatever challenges they might be facing either in terms of technology, pricing, availability of products or possible options. I guarantee that they'll be better informed and better served.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review!
Hope this helps!
