We're one of the few retailers on the planet where you can enjoy the lowest possible prices in real stores without having to take your chance on the web. Our website, like any other website, can only help you so much; that's why we have stores across the country that also save you the cost of delivery! There's nothing like seeing your purchase in the flesh, having the chance to compare it to the numerous other hot deals on our shelves and take it home today! No waiting up to 28 days to get hold of your bargain, or chancing things to couriers!
- Our buyers are the sharpest in the business, enabling us to offer the lowest possible prices.
- Our stores pile bargains high and don't have fancy shop fittings so we keep our overheads down and pass on those savings to you.
- Our friendly sales colleagues are well known for their product expertise and will attempt to ensure you make the right purchase.
- Should something go wrong we pride ourselves in being there for you, face to face (not just at the end of an email address that might go unanswered).
And if that's not enough, our in-store "price challenge" guarantees you the very best price (even against other e-tailers prices).
We're keen to reward those customers that still make the effort to come and see us, and so for this reason and also the fact that some of our deals are finite in supply, you will find that a few of our lines are shown as only available in-store.
Having said all that we're still very happy to supply customer's on the web who are unable to visit us in person, and look forward to doing business with you in any event!
3^Bi-wired^A speaker with seperate terminals to connect it's woofer and tweeter to the amplifier.^|43^Analogue^A signal that is as exact replica of the original sounds waveform. An example of an analogue device is a cassette deck.^|44^Impedance^The resistance, measured in Ohms, offered to AC (alternating current) signals by a component. In loudspeaker specifications 8 Ohms is the norm, 6 Ohms is becoming more popular, but be careful with low-impedance 4 Ohm speakers because not all power amplifiers are happy driving them.^|45^RDS^Radio Data System - This is fitted to some tuners and car radios (where it's genuinely useful ) and supplies some additional information and controls signals to the tuner^|46^Sensitivity^When quoted in loudspeaker specifications, this tells you how easy a job the amplifier have driving the speaker. Measured in dB (decibels), 88dB is average, 84dB is low (so get a big amp!), and 90dB or above is very high (so a little amp will do).^|47^Tweeter^A loudspeaker's high frequency drive unit. Produces most of the treble.^|48^Watts^Used to specify amplifier or loudspeaker power handling.^|49^Woofer^A loudspeaker's low frequency drive unit.^|50^Amplifier^Hi-fi component (or any electrical circuit) that boosts signals. An amplifier is required to connect a cd player to speakers...and so on.^|51^Multiregion^This term means that the unit is capable of playing discs from anywhere in the world. The world is split into 6 regions. DVD players and discs sold within Europe are region 2. America is region 1 and so on.^|52^Multi-region^This term means that the unit is capable of playing discs from anywhere in the world. The world is split into 6 regions.

When connected to a multi-channel-equipped PC, you are able to enjoy high resolution stereo or 5.1-channel surround audio at 128 k - 768 Kbps compression rates. At any given bit rate, 5-channel WMA9 Pro will bring you higher fidelity than other sound compression algorithms thanks to the latest audio codec technology.^|93^WMA 9 Pro^The first digital surround sound coding technology for the Web, developed by Microsoft.

This will allow anyone who has a single HDMI connection on the TV, to connect several via the amp. The number of devices varies between models.^|96^PRFC^Test^|108^DTS-HD^High definition Audio sound track on an bluray disk that is designed by DTS and probably the best sound track available.^|
