15th June 2020, Tunbridge Wells, UK: Britain’s hi-fi stores are opening their doors once again this week, following an extended lockdown period. Like other shops and public-facing retailers, hi-fi stores are closely following government safety guidelines to ensure the wellbeing of their customers. 

Digital and analogue audio expert Chord Electronics’ extensive UK dealer network is largely open, with potential visitors advised to check their local store using the company’s online dealer locator tool: The Kent company has posted further details on its website


Digital music library specialist, Melco Audio’s UK retailers are also opening this week, along with the Japanese company’s top-tier Melco Master Dealers (which have undergone extensive specialist training) with all outlets listed on the company’s dealer page online: Melco Audio’s recent lockdown-inspired Free Home Demo scheme successfully kept music lovers in hardware while bricks and mortar stores remain closed.

Welsh hi-fi specialist, Leema Acoustics, is also reporting its dealers are opening their doors this week and the Welshpool factory has remained (safely) open throughout the lockdown, hand-building to order for music lovers around the world.

The UK’s leading A/V cable specialist, Chord Company, who recently launched its own hardware brand, English Electric, is welcoming back its dealers this week, many of whom offer a speaker cable termination service following the rollout of the ChordOhmic Hex Gun this time last year. Chord Company (and English Electric) dealers can be found online:
