Welcome to the Frank Harvey Hi-Fi Blog.
This info page is run independently to our main sales website, hifix.co.uk, and is used to provide you with a place to visit to find out more about us and be informed of new models, events, special offers, and other hugely interesting ‘stuff’.
In the About Us section you’ll find details and history as well as photos of Frank Harvey Hi-Fi and our Coventry showroom.
The On Demo will link to our audio forum which will give a full listing of manufacturers and products we have available for demo in our three storey showroom, along with a few photos.
Forums tend to be a place of valuable information for many people, and we felt that our customers, and our customers-to-be could do with a friendly forum where they can ask any questions they need answered, as well as join in day to day discussions about anything and everything. As well as sections for hi-fi and audio/visual, there is a trading section where you can sell your old equipment and post wants, read about upcoming shows and events, new products, as well as discussing movies and music. There’s even a section for your very own blog, where you can tell us what you’re doing, what your listening to, or just tell everyone about your day if you so wish. So pop over to www.peoplesrepublicofhifi.co.uk and sign up, say hello, and join in!
All the staff are signed up to the forum, the only thing missing, is you

A major update of Bowers & Wilkins‘ long standing 600 series loudspeakers will be launched at the Bristol Show, and hit stores next month. Some of the most immediate changes have been to slim down the cabinets, and move reflex ports to the front of the cabinet rather than the back. The new range uses a ‘double dome’ HF design very similar to the of their CM10.
