Melbourne’s most famous audiophile music store has moved to new premises in Cheltenham.
Audiophile Reference Recordings’ owner, Charles Lee, founded his family-owned store in 2011, as the culmination of a dream he’d harboured since getting the hi-fi bug as a teenager. ‘My aim was to stock as many brand-new audiophile-quality recordings as we could, and to ship anywhere in Australia within 24 hours,’ says Lee. ‘If we do not have stock of a particular recording you’re after, our guarantee is that we will try our very best to source it for you and bring it to you with our greatest care and in its original condition as quickly as possible. Our aim is to be the best audiophile music store in Australia!
Lee says the move to the new was prompted by the old store’s poor location. ‘Our new store is better for customers because it is much easier to find,’ he told Australian Hi-Fi Magazine. ‘There is no record shop like ours in Melbourne and even the whole of Australia. Together with The Audio Experts, we are working and helping each other to meet and hopefully exceed our customers demand in terms of both hardware and software for ascending audiophiles. Our stock consists of more than 90% of audiophile quality vinyl records and CDs which are carefully selected from respected labels and we work to become the best audiophile music shop in Australia.’
In addition to LPs, CDs, SACDs, DVDs and other software, Audiophile Reference Recordings also sells hi-fi equipment from Pro-Ject, Soundsmith, Musical Fidelity, Perreaux, and Acoustic Signature, plus it has the widest range of record cleaning machines and products of any store in Australia.
The store’s new address is:
Audiophile Reference Recordings
Level 1, 1277 Nepean Highway
Cheltenham Victoria 3192
