Absolute Abode has opened its new home entertainment showcase on the Isle of Man. Its beautifully designed living room space features premium products from a carefully selected portfolio of award-winning performance audio manufacturers. With calming views across the Irish Sea, the friendly and knowledgeable team aims to relax and inspire its customers, allowing them to create their own zone in which they can escape to enjoy the emotions of music and movies. 

Having established its London store, O’Brien Hi-Fi, in 1966, the Absolute Abode team brings over 50 years of experience to the Isle of Man. Its aim is to bring music and movies to stunning life and to integrate this with simple to use technology by Crestron including remote lighting and blind control. Everything is designed, supplied and installed with a focus on energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact. 

Amplifiers, streamers, turntables, DACs, cables and loudspeakers from renowned manufacturers such as MOON, Sonus Faber, VPI, Naim and Nordost will delight any listener. This combination of products, knowledge and a beautiful coastal location guarantees a unique home entertainment purchasing experience. 

Mark O’Brien, company director, said, ‘We are delighted to be able to open Absolute Abode on the Isle of Man. Our first living room space was created in our London store, O’Brien Hi-Fi, over 10 years ago – this created a fresh experience for enjoying hi-fi and was one of the first of its type. We felt this space was required to broaden the appeal of listening to music at home, previously a concept that suggested large boxes and lots of cables! We wanted to show a living room could also be a beautiful place to enjoy music (and movies) without resembling a laboratory! Through hi-fi, home cinema and smart home technology we can help our customers build their Absolute Abode!’ 

John Carroll, managing director of distributor, Renaissance Audio, commented, ‘I am proud to be able to supply Absolute Abode with some of the world’s finest audio products. The beautiful experience centre provides the perfect showcase for listeners to enjoy a stunning performance.’
