The Pineapple Thief (Live)

28th November 2014

A number of years ago, I discovered these guys via a recommendation based on other music I was listening to at the time. And as I’m always looking for my next fix of new music, I decided to give them a try. I was surprised to find that they had already been around for a while (since 1999) and had a substantial back catalogue to choose from. Then came the booking of tickets to see them live at the Classic Grande in Glasgow back in 2011 and the discovery that they are also a superb live band.

Now, it’s your chance to see them live in Edinburgh! Fast becoming a regular haunt for seeing some great bands close to home, the Liquid Room  in Victoria Street will be host to The Pineapple Thief on their current ‘Magnolia’ album tour. You can read more about that and book your tickets (of which there are only a few left so book now to avoid disappointment) here.

It’s next Saturday, 6th December but please note the early start time of 6.30pm. The venue is also host to club nights after gigs but this time, it’s also to allow superb support band Winter in Eden to play an extended slot due to phenomenal demand. So don’t miss your opportunity for a great Saturday night of live music and to see these two great bands for the price of one ticket!

See you there…

Totem Kin Mini Loudspeakers

27th November 2014

It’s been a long time since we received a new small loudspeaker from Totem, and in the Kin Mini they have a real star at only £449.

Measuring just 9 inches tall, the Kin is rather petite, with the considerable attraction of being able to place these in areas other speakers wouldn’t fit, and still get a remarkably large soundstage for such a size of speaker. They are flexible in where they are positioned for maximum imaging.

These funky little loudspeakers are available in white or black satin, both Edinburgh and Glasgow stores have the Kin Mini on demonstration now.

For more information see the Totem website >>

If you want a little more on the bass side, there is also a Kin subwoofer too.

 

 

Native DSD from MOON

12th November 2014

We are delighted to announce the arrival of the MOON 380DSD. This new DAC from MOON offers the facility to play DSD files which can be delivered direct to the DAC chip in native format via USB. Please call in to the Edinburgh store and speak to John to find out more about the advantages of this system over the more conventional DSD over DOP, for the real fans of the DSD format.
