About our deliveries
To offer you the best possible service, as well as using our own fleet of vehicles, we work very closely with specialist 2-man carriers, parcel carriers and a separate carrier to Scotland.
Many of our items can be delivered within 1-5 working days of ordering and most domestic appliances are delivered within 10 working days of ordering.
All our deliveries are to a UK mainland address. Please contact our sales team for further information.
Please note that we CAN NOT offer an installation or connection service. For purchases of large domestic appliances that require installation/connection to mains electricity or gas, such as Cookers, Ovens and Hobs we recommend that you contact a local authorised and registered electrician or gas fitter. For American Style Fridge Freezers you may also require the services of a good plumber.
All small appliances and items such as Blu-Ray players and televisions up to and including 40inch televisions fall into our schedule 1 deliveries.
All items are delivered within 1-5 working days, and currently ALL our deliveries are FREE.
Any Television over 40inch and all home appliances such as Washing Machines, Dishwashers and Fridge Freezers up to 180cm tall fall into our schedule 2 deliveries.
We deliver to most postcode areas once a week, excluding islands and highlands, and currently ALL our deliveries are FREE
Please be aware that our deliveries for these products are to the door step only, we are unable to deliver these items up flights of stairs, if you require a 2-man delivery this is selectable at the basket stage at an additional cost. If the 2-Man service is selected this would fall into a schedule 3 delivery.
Our schedule 2 deliveries are between 7am and 7pm, we provide the drivers details, via email, to enable you to contact the driver on the day of delivery.
All Large appliances such as American Style Fridge Freezers, Range Cookers and Fridge Freezers over 180cm tall.
These products will be delivered within 10 working days of ordering, our courier company will be in touch to advise of a delivery day and are also able to provide an AM or PM delivery.
All items require a signature on receipt. Any instructions to "leave safe" are at the purchasers risk and we CAN NOT be responsible for items that are left after such requests.
Whilst we endeavour to deliver all items within the time scale given at the time of sale, where we are reliant on third-party carriers we can not be held liable for any delay and/or loss caused.
Whilst our drivers make every effort to ensure that a delivery will be made safely, we cannot be held liable for any accidental damage caused to a property or its furnishings.
Customers should be aware that white and brown goods can be very heavy and if they have delicate/clean/new surfaces they should ensure that some action is taken to prevent damage to the area.
Any items that could cause an obstruction should be moved to a safe location. Any uneven surfaces or access issues into the property should also be reported prior to delivery
Please note that a £30.00 re-delivery charge may be applied if our courier/delivery driver attempts to make a delivery to your address and no one is home. If delivery has to be re-arranged it must be done by contacting our call centre on 0844 225 9174 before 5.00pm on the day before expected delivery
All items and delivery times are subject to stock availability and delivery to a UK mainland address.
Highland addresses are classified as the following postcodes, IV, KW, AB, FK17-FK21, PA20-PA80 and PH17-PH50. For quotes on Highland deliveries please contact us. If an order is placed prior to contacting us our sales team will be in touch regarding an additional charge.
Conventional analogue turntables have problems with degradation in sound quality caused by factors such as minute speed vibration during rotation and rotation irregularity called "cogging." In the SL-1200G, the use of a newly developed coreless direct-drive motor with no iron core eliminates cogging. Also, the twin-rotor construction reduces the bearing load while maintaining high torque and also reduces minute vibration during rotation. These factors enable reproduction of the warm, exquisitely detailed sound etched on analogue records.
The application of motor control technology developed for Blu-ray devices and switching the drive mode depending on the operational status of the motor achieve a high-starting torque and high-speed stability.
The turntable has a three-layered construction with a rigidly combined brass and aluminium die-cast platter. With a deadening rubber covering its entire rear surface to eliminate unnecessary resonance, thereby achieving high rigidity and vibration damping. This delivers smooth rotational stability and inertial mass surpassing the SP-10MK2, the direct-drive turntable standard used by broadcast stations worldwide, as well as having more than twice the inertial mass of the SL-1200MK5.
When the weight distribution of the turntable is uneven, excess vibration or noise occurs during rotation, which causes degradation in sound quality. Therefore, the balance of the turntable is adjusted at the factory by using specialized high-precision balance adjustment equipment for each and every item after the turntable is assembled. Turntables that have undergone adjustment are labelled with a sticker reading "BALANCED" to indicate that adjustment has been done.
The tonearm employs lightweight magnesium which has a high damping effect, with cold drawing improving the characteristics of the material and achieving the high-precision required. In addition, high initial-motion sensitivity is attained by employing the traditional Technics gimbal suspension construction with horizontal rotation axis and the vertical rotation axis intersecting at a single central point, as well as high-precision bearings using a cut-processed housing.
The use of brass-milled, gold-plated phono terminals and ground terminals prevent degradation in sound quality while enabling the easy attaching and detaching of cables. Also the use of metal shielding construction inside the case reduces the effects of external noise.
