All budding turntable designers will be interested in a new book on the subject by Roy Gandy, MD of Rega Research

This hardback tome, A Vibration Measuring Machine, has 3 books in one, The Company, The Engineering, and The People

Rega enthusiasts and turntable geeks, or both like me, will love it

It's £ 39.50 online, personal callers can have a copy for £ 30, here's a review



A few Rega articles including first reviews of the latest Brio-r are now in the Blog section

Also there are now red versions of the Planar2 and Planar3, very cool, now available

rega pl 3 red ania


I've always said what a pain it is to digitise your vinyl collection to play it on your streaming system.

And now I'm happy to be proved wrong, see latest Blog on Plato


The Rega factory tour Blog is now complete and includes a video tour, check it out in Blogs



So What Hifi do a story about 9 of the best turntables and 4 of them are Regas!

Wow, check it out. Regas are the best!

I suppose it would have been unacceptable to have all 6 Regas featured!


Rega have made another improvement to the turntable range!

The RP1 will now become the new Planar1

We have a sample for you to see/hear in-store now and we are taking orders for late August delivery,

updated price details for Planar 1, 2, and 3 are now in the Catalogue



REGA have been very busy recently, hot on the heels of the new Planar3 comes a new Planar2

Featuring the famous glass platter and an uprated RB250 tonearm the Planar2 bridges the gap perfectly between RP1 and the Planar3

Very competitively priced at £ 399 with a factory fitted Rega Carbon cartridge the Planar2 is set to attract many new clients to Rega

If you want to make it even better you can add a Performance pack for an additional £ 99

This is also great value as it provides a better cartridge, belt and mat which would cost £ 115 if purchased separately

The Planar2, in black or white and complete with lid, is available now

Rega planar 2 white



Still much confusion about Linn Exakt, and it can take some concentration to get your head round it!

To help, hopefully, there is a new blog about it above with a link to a video explanation

Enjoy Linn Exakt, what's that all about?

The iconic ‘ Planar Three’ returns - Now Available 

Replacing the multi award winning and five times What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task.

It took Rega's team of designers headed up by Roy Gandy, two years to develop the all new 'Planar 3' following the biggest re-design of the iconic 'three' model ever seen.

The Rega team have improved every aspect of this turntable offering improved ergonomics, usability and first and foremost, sonic performance.

The new ‘Planar 3’ is truly a new turntable for 2016 carrying over just two components from the previous model.

 While Rega turntables, cd players and amplifiers have been sweeping all before them the speaker range has been described as 'quirky'.

New prices now confirmed RX1 bookshelf £ 798, RX3 slim floorstander £1298, RX5 floorstander £1698

All are now on demonstration, drop us a line to arrange an appointment for a listen.

New from Linn comes Space Optimisation.

This is truly amazing and is available free to Linn DS owners. 

Space Optimisation puts DS Linn ahead of the game, read the BLOG for more details.


A new category has just appeared in our Catalogue, USED and OFFERS. This will make it easier to see what bargains we have available, although there is less blether about them. For more info on anything that catches your eye in there just drop me a line using the Contact Us tab above. Enjoy!

Another new Update brings a section for All-in-one/Mini systems into the Catalogue. Is it rude to call a Naim UnitiQute or Linn Majik DSM a Mini system? I don't think so, a tiny box that sounds great? What's not to love?

        So what's hot and selling?

Turntables are back with a bang. Our Rega orders are back to pre-cd 1980s levels, and some even have waiting lists. Dig out the old vinyl and bring a smile back, from just £248 for the Planar1.

Elicit-R amplifiers and Saturn-R cd players are also in stock, £ 1598 each. All these have won top magazine awards and rave reviews worldwide.

Lyric Hifi is pleased to announce a new service for our clients: CD Ripping

With the advent of Digital Streaming systems music selection is now so simple, with brilliant performance, yet the boring task of transferring your precious cd collection to hard disk at full quality does could put you off the whole idea. Don't let it! 

HELP is at hand, for a very small pecuniary remuneration!

We have invested in an automated ripping system to take away all the effort and leave you with just the pleasure, the listening to uncompressed music. Now you no longer have to trust your unique collection to a carrier and send it to England and back, along with the expense. Here is how it works:

Collect as many 100 disc spindles as you need from us and simply set your cds on to them. Drop these with us along with your hard drive and pick it up in a few days, depending how many you have and how busy we are.

We will rip to your preferred format, usually FLAC Lossless Uncompressed, and also give you a report on the accuracy achieved.

Costs vary according to quantity of cds

Up to 100 99p each, 101-200 95p, 201-400 85p

 401 and more 79p

If you would like to supply your collection in jewel cases then add 20p per disc for the handling

Your collection is then ready to connect to your Linn DS, Naim Uniti/ND, Cyrus Stream, Sonos, Denon, Marantz, in fact any of Lyric Hifi's music streaming solutions, instantly controlled by ipad/ipod/laptop. Easy peasy! 


At Lyric we have the broadest range of stock you will find anywhere in Ireland.

With 30 years experience as a specialist and performance orientated retailer we know a great product from an ordinary one: and our Product Policy means we do not stock just ordinary ones.

We look, listen, test, and then recommend a selected range of the best performing products across a wide price range, so you can find the very best system you can afford!

Over the years we have won national awards for our commitment to performance quality products and we are very proud of this, giving our clients confidence that we know what we are talking about and that our support and advice is a valuable part of your hifi system, cinema system, or new home project.  

The best sound, the best vision, the best service
