Auralic Aries Mini only 649.99 Actually in STOCK in Canada From Wind Chaser in Nov 03, 2017Nov 03, 2017 From Wind Chaser
I only found out about HiFi Shop Direct in recent days. They are more of an online dealer than a brick and mortar store but they can facilitate "in store demos" if that's what you'd like. Perry's approach is if you take something home and try it in your own room, you'll have a much better idea if it suits your needs as opposed to hearing it in an unfamiliar environment with unfamiliar gear. Can't argue with that logic.
So I ordered a an Auralic Aries Mini and it was promptly shipped out and I received it within two days. A few days later Perry followed up, but being busy with other things I hadn't had a chance to open the box. We chatted a while and it is very clear they are very knowledgeable and passionate about this hobby. Their commitment to the customer goes well beyond making the sale.
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.
