It’s been…. one week

by | Jun 24, 2018

Well Chorlton it’s been a whole week, and it’s flown by! The feedback we’ve had has been bloody fantastic and how complimentary you have all been on social media has blown us away. From the bottom of our hearts – Thank you, you are awesome. It was also wonderful of Carl from Dig Records Liverpool to pop in and show his support, if you are Liverpool based go check them out!

We are going to do a weekly blog that will give you what’s new, any news and some of our recommendations here at VF. Many of you have asked for a mailing list which we will get round to over time, for now though these updates will be shared via all of our social media platforms.

 

News 

We are VERY excited to confirm that as of the next couple of weeks we will be a Pro-Ject partner. Many customers have been asking us if we will sell turntables and we have always admired the simplistic and stylish understated beauty that is Pro-Ject. Aside from the many awards they have won and top rated reviews there hardware receives they are just out-right slick. The vinyl format offers such a rich sound quality that can only be heard when played on good kit, there is a place for an all in-one speaker turntable unit if you are on a tight budget or just getting started, but the difference in sound quality is a no brainer with some quality kit. We will also carry some accessories from cleaning gear to mats in the next few weeks too. Watch this space or ask us in store for more details.
