06-08-16 John Foley - Regarding Townshend Audio Seismic Isolation Podiums

Podiums arrived three days ago. They worked well from the start by getting rid of the bass problems in the room and have since been a complete revelation. Everything the reviewers say about them is true
Cheers 
John

15-02-16 Andrew Billings - Regarding Charisma MC1 Cartridge

Dear Stuart

Should have sent this earlier but thanks for the Charisma cartridge. It was probably the cart I was hoping you were going to to recommend if I was to push the boat out. This was down to the reviews I'd read that matched the acoustic signature tonearm with a Charisma cart. Whether the Ortofon blue or black would be as good or better, I've got no idea. I think I've got it set up properly after a lot of fiddling but, nothing to compare it to. Anyway, Nina Simone sounds like she's in my listening room through my Russell k 100's and that's all I can ask for.

09-02-16 Richard Taylor - Regarding Townshend Allegri Pre-Amp

I have just connected and briefly tried a few 'snippets' with all of the three inputs I use at the moment and can only say I am astonished -  the performance is nothing short of superb. I have tried some 'Gare du Nord' via MC XX-2/Hadcock, Nick Drake via CDi and Leonard Cohen and Vivaldi FLACs from PC. All seems to work and it sounds incredible straight from the box. What's burning in all about? The Tisbury is a great bargain at its price but is left standing by the allegri (and so it should!).

28-12-15 Bob Mitchell - Regarding Townshend Seismic Podiums

Firstly, thank you for pulling out all the stops to ensure that I received the above before Christmas.  In short, they are a revelation.  Every aspect of reproduced music is improved.  I am not a musician but I honestly believe in what I heard from the outset, which is (in no particular order):
 
  • instruments/sounds are separated more from each other and micro and macro dynamics and interplay are heightened, 
  • depth, width and height of sound stage are increased "across the board",
  • instruments are reproduced with more timbre, detail and authenticity,
  • bass guitar reproduction is now more full and tuneful, hence it is easier to follow and appreciate the notes played, which are more tightly controlled/defined,
  • low frequencies now longer boom nor interact with the room.  Interestingly, bass notes do not now reverberate/intrude into adjacent rooms or, for that matter, upstairs :o),
  • kick drum is heftier and I feel confident that this and the better bass solidity are due to low frequency energy being now directed exclusively through my Quad 2905 electrostatics and not "wasted" via the floor, as Max has ably demonstrated,
  • higher frequency notes/sounds soar even more and, as with all of the improvements noted so far, are more detailed and authentic.  Typically, the playing of piano and keyboards now provide more detail of the actual notes played and enhance the step up recently provided by my Chord DAVE DAC.
To summarise, the audible improvements are across the entire range of reproduced sound, which is now a "much more open window", and are a huge credit to yourselves.


08-12-15 Tony Davis - Regarding Townshend Seismic Platforms

Hi Stuart
Platform arrived safely today, no problems setting it up. I`ve already got a platform under my CD player, turntable and speakers and the results have been brilliant. I didn`t think the platform would have as much effect on my amplifier, but It`s had the same effect as the other platforms.
Cheers Tony

05-06-15 Ben Chadwick - Regarding PAD Proteus Provectus Interconnects
 
Having never met or spoken to Stuart he offered me home dem of this very expensive interconnect. Arrived special delivery next day. The rest is history bought it almost instantly as it is absolutely top class in every area worth every penny. Superb bloke to deal with, amazing prices, customer service, very honest, no pressure or rush with home dem and took my interconnect as part ex.
Cant speak highly enough and as for the interconnect it has transformed my system i'll be back for more. Wish all dealers were as honest as Stuart i'm a very happy man.


01-03-15 Rene Roks - Regarding Townshend Supertweeters
 
I just want to thank you again for the very nice reception and great coffee. Last night I started listening to the Super tweeters.
They really sound amazing in my system. The difference is enormous: more space, more details, more 'silence' and - most important - the music really happening. I put them in the end on level 3 since 4 was a little bit too much.
Especially when playing vinyl the music is magical. Voices and wind instruments are incredible. I am hearing things that I never heard before on records that I know very well.
So, in short, I am a happy man. Thank you!


27-02-15 Michael Richards - Regarding Voodoo Black Diamond Powercord

Dear Stuart,
Voodoo cable arrived safely installed immediately - sounded no better than the Russ Andrews Signature at first but it has been in for nearly two hours and is really beginning to blossom - lovely tight bass, good soundstage - quite an improvement in fact!  The treble has a precise crispness to it. 
I have the Black Diamond on my Vector CDP 7 CD Player (Valve)., which needs a little maintenance ( I had been using it on my multi disc player). The improvement in every aspect has been staggering. The keyword is realism and a huge improvement on what went before - Russ Andrews Signature - which I thought was pretty damn good.
Warmest best
Mike

15-12-14 Lennart Nilsson - Regarding Townshend Audio Super-Tweeters
Thank´s for the fast delivery. I ordered the goods the 10th of December,
and it was on my doorsteps this morning. Excellent! And it´s an amazing product. 
Easy to install, and it sounds beautiful in my system, making the soundstage incredible 
big with a lot of air, and it manages in some strange way, to get both dynamics and 
bass sounding better than ever. Nice! Thank you again and I wish you a Merry Christmas 
and a Happy New Year!

30-10-14 Ivor Geraghty - Regarding a Roksan Turntable Mat
I just wanted to give kudos to Stuart at Mackenzie Hi Fi http://www.mackenziehifi.com for being such a nice helpful guy to deal with. A browse of his website shows some pretty tasty gear too! I should add that he also threw in a gift of Vinyl Passion Stylus Dust Buster because there had been some delay in getting the good to me. Given that Stuart hadn't charged postage in the first place I wasn't expecting next day delivery!

Anyway, it's always good to pass on a retailer was a pleasure to deal with even on small stuff like this.

17-05-14 Raymond Bill - Regarding the Shanling M3.1 Streamer

All that remains to say I am very lucky to have purchased the Shanling streamer which performs in excellent sound, and is very user friendly even my son commented it sounded a lot better than the previous one I had, more open sound and the bass & mid range are fantastic

08-01-14 Raymond Bill - Regarding an Electrocompaniet ECC1 CD Player
From the start the sound was superb very clear at all levels no grain in the instrumentals. Oscar Peterson had my feet tapping along with his renditions.I am positive Diana Krall was in our sitting room singing, the sound was that good.

05-12-13 Brian Judd - Regarding Snake River Audio Cotton'th Sig Bi-Wire Speaker CablesInterconnects
Stuart these SRA interconnects and signature bi wire cables are superb, bass solidity, tonality, timing, its all there. Instruments like sax are so organic, simply breathtaking! Allied to your fast friendly service here's one happy customer.

16-11-13 Lee Kindon - Regarding a Snake River Audio Cottonmouth Signature Powercord.
Great cable stuart , blew my old cable out the water !!  All the best , Lee.

20-09-13 Harley Lovegrove, Technical Director, Pearl Acoustics Ltd. - Regarding a Fidelity Audio Pre 120.
The Fidelity Audio pre-amp arrived today and I must say that it meets my requirements exactly. We are a high end, single driver loud speaker manufacturer and we wanted the simplest (purest) pre-amplifier we could find to prove to our customers in our showroom that there are no tricks or treats between our CD player and the power amp (Rogue Audio valve) and our speakers and this very reasonably priced tool does the trick.
Otherwise how can I prove that it is our speakers that are wonderful if I demo on systems costing tens of thousands of euros.  Fidelity Audio have proved to me that if you opt for simplicity you can get there on a sensible budget.
Great service - thank you

16-09-13 Andre Pallett - Regarding an Ariand Audio FV 34B Valve Amplifier
Just wanted to say that the amp arrived today in perfect condition and I couldn't be happier. I'm amazed at just how good it sounds!
Thanks again for your help and great service, I'll certainly recommend you in the future, just had a friend around who I strongly suspect might be making a similar purchase from you soon as he was frankly blown away!

11-09-13 Stefan Thunburg - Regarding Snake River Audio Mamushi Sig Speaker & Interconnect Cables.
Just wanted to let you know that the cables arrived today. Only been playing for a few hours yet but I already hear improvements over my old cables; a more detailed and richer, fuller sound with SRA so far. Looking forward to my next interconnect to complete the setup.
I also want to thank you for your excellent customer service. It´s been a pleasure doing business with you!

17-07-13 Douglas McAlpine - Regarding the Snake River Audio Mamushi Sig & Boomslang Digital Cable. I've recently purchased the Boomslang cable and Mamushi interconnects...Got the cable thanks. It actually exceeds my expectations - it's noticeably improved the clarity of my system.
Just wanted to write in and let you know that they are phenomenal. I've burned a lot of money on my system (well a fair amount anyway) and there's been times when I've wanted to sell the lot and forget it. Cabling definitely matters. I am loving my system right now.

25-04-13 Bob Mitchell - Regarding a Townshend Allegri Pre-Amplifier.
Within a very short time, my first reactions were those of greater clarity, more energy/foot tapping urges, more sense of the interplay of the musicians and deeper, more defined bass.  I hooked up my AV system, via 0db "unity gain" control knob setting, as advised by Max, himself, and I gave the blu-ray of The Eagles Live at Melbourne concert an airing and was shocked by two facets.  Firstly, the energy and increased output/involvement in the side and rear speakers was just so utterly apparent and, secondly, on the track "You Belong To The City", the previous absence of bass playing in certain sections of the song was most evident (and was now most welcome).  Max sure has hit the bulls eye with this pre-amp and I bet that it will sing even more over the coming weeks (assuming that, typically, it will burn in....although am not sure if this will be the case).  Whatever, it is a great upgrade and my Linn Majik Kontrol is about to meet a new owner, I hope, on eBay, smile. Thank you, also, for a service that is second to none.

04-03-13 Mark Sturgis - Regarding the Formidable Townshend Audio Fractal F1 Interconnects.
I’ve been playing non-stop vinyl since getting the F1 cable and I think that when I do retire I may well go down the route of getting a Townshend Rock turntable.

23-12-12 Chris Burton  - Regarding a Custom Design B&W Zeppelin Stand
Hi, I received the above product on Friday and would like you to know how delighted I am, both with the stand and the exemplary customer service you provided to me. A 5 star item and 5 star service.
 
07-11-12 Steven Taylor - Regarding Townshend Excalibur 3 Tonearm and Fidelity Audio Mains Filter.
It's been a pleasure doing business with you, your customer service has been faultless.  I look forward to doing business with you in the future; I'm sure something will need upgrading at some point - it always does.

05-09-12. Carlos Pavia (BRAZIL) - Regarding an Electrocompaniet ECP-1 Phono Stage.
Stuart, You are the man! Thanks a lot! I hope next year I'll be in UK and I can hear nice things in your store.
