Gulliford Hi Fi was first established in 1977 at Gulliford House at Mamhead. Many moves and changes have occurred since then, passing through Radfords and Audio Excellence Exeter, before in December 2005 returning back to Gulliford Hi Fi at 156 Sidwell Street, and finally to 97 Sidwell Street where we are today. The staff have remained virtually unchanged since 1990, with Mike and Grace Simmonds and Ian Phillips. Ian is shop based and Mike runs the Custom Install Department.
In 1977 we set out to demonstrate and supply products of excellent sound quality, build quality and service support. Most of those companies still remain with us today, Arcam, Linn, Naim, Proac, Rega, Cyrus, (which originated from Mission) and Bowers and Wilkins to name a few. We, as a consequence, retain many of our customers from the seventies through to today.
Hi Fi and Stereo is where we started and today that remains a fundamental part of our business ,with turntable sales on the rise. Streaming of music has created yet anothersource for the system.
