Peak HiFi is a well established business and was formed in 2004 as audio consultants specialising in high quality audio equipment, with a particular fondness for stereo and analogue equipment, we are particularly enthusiastic for classic turntables such as the Garrard 301 and the Garrard 401. Peak HiFi offers a select range of new and approved used equipment, accessories and services. Reconditioned Garrard 301 and 401 units are available as well as beautifully engineered plinths for these decks. We welcome you to visit us ay our premises in the Peak District and to take advantage of our relaxed surroundings and two demonstration rooms where we can demonstrate all of the equipment and assist you with your selection.

Ortofon HiFi RONDO BLUE
The Rondo Blue cartridge sound is defined to be more expressive and will distinguish higher from lower pitched instruments- yet well controlled by the influence of wooden material. The Nude FG 70 diamond is here mounted on a cylindrical aluminum cantilever again revealing a very flat frequency response passing 20 kHz including very high tracking ability at recommended tracking force of just 2, 3 gram.
We find the sound picture will tend to suit customers liking orchestral music as well as smaller groups of instruments like chamber music smaller choirs and solo instruments.
