Who we are

Why Summer House Sounds?

Gold Note IS-1000

Summer House Sounds was established in 2015. Ultimately, we are all about music, your music, the way you would like to hear it. For us, that means a performance in your home as close as possible to the live performance. We have spent many years listening to the widest range of equipment and have chosen those products we believe provide the best possible sound, and, just as importantly, the best value for money.

We are happy to arrange Covid Secure demonstrations either in your home or at our Summerhouse demonstration facility.

We take a very informal and relaxed approach to demonstrations and regardless of your chosen medium, analogue, digital or a mixture of both, we will work with you to get the best possible quality components and sound for your budget.

We have decided to approach the new normal with our own version of the Hi-Fi retail experience. We have not only spent many years finding the best sounding, best value, best made components, but in most cases deal direct with the manufacturers, cut out the middle men and pass on the financial benefits direct to you.

We hope to see you soon and show you that value and great sound quality can go together.

Our Brands

All our brands are carefully selected and independently assessed and to ensure a focus on quality, we keep our range to a minimum. We have spent many, many years, finding and listening to the best sounding equipment, we then check, test and re-test before finally committing to a manufacturer and selling direct to our customers or in some cases through a very small select set of specialist dealers. You will never see us advertising that we carry 20 or more brands or that we have stock when we don’t.
