The best way to choose your ideal music system is to listen and choose what’s best for you. We have a number of dedicated listening rooms at our showroom in Blackrock where you can listen to your favourite tracks and compare various setups - from high quality, easily affordable entry level systems to the latest state of the art high-end offerings – allowing you to decide exactly which option suits best. After all, buying a Hi-Fi music system should be an enjoyable experience where you can relax knowing home demonstrations and installation are on offer – with our legendary service department available to look after your purchase long term into the future – just as we have been doing for the past 50+ years!
Vinyl LP Records are back - in fact, they never went away!
In order to get the best sound from your favourite records you will need a properly designed and engineered turntable and we stock and recommend a select number of excellent turntables from entry level models at under €300 to around €150,000 - so there's one to suit everybody in the audience!
BTW, Cloney Audio were Rega’s first Irish importer / distributor and continue to recommend and stock this super range of turntable’s. If you are going to purchase a Rega, buy it from the people who really know Rega.
Nowadays decent sounding stereo amplifiers are available from around €300 upwards and the one most suitable for your needs depends on a number of factors, including speakers being used, size and type of listening room, number and type of inputs needed, power output and, ultimately - sound quality, because there can be a huge variation here.

Cables affect all key aspects of musical performance: dynamics, detail, coherence and tonal quality, to name just a few. Any aspect of power or signal transmission can be improved (or damaged) by cable quality. This covers mains leads, interconnects – analogue and digital (including USB) and speaker cables.
