Can you believe it, Lyric Hifi celebrates 40 years in business!

Not certain I believe it but it was in Jan80 that 2 guys opened a hifi shop on the Stranmillis Road. We decided that we would choose only the best gear and let people hear why. Nothing has changed, we still sell the best gear, we still don't sell second best, and we still let you hear what you get for your money. See the latest BLOG

Kef played the famous LS50s and also the R5s and then the Blade 2 speakers, a mere £ 18,000 per pair, we have a pair here if you want a listen!

In the Rega room a Planar 10 with the new RB3000 tonearm, Apheta3 MC cartridge and the Reference Aura MC Phono stage played into the new Atheos Reference amplifier.

New additions to the Special Offers page in the Catalogue


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

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
