  2. We invite you to our event with G Point Audio, this FRIDAY 14th and SATURDAY 15th JULY. G Point Audio are distributors of the very best in artisan audio playback and hi-fi systems. Together we'll advise on how to put a great system together for a reasonable budget and will showcase some of the brands available here at Audio-philia, including:Lampizator: Audio: Engineering: Turntables: Check out our Facebook Event page. "At G Point Audio, our deepest desire is to share with a wider audience the truth that the very best in audio playback does not always come from the biggest names in the industry. The products that G Point Audio has carefully chosen to represent come from a very different philosophical perspective. They are made by individuals and small groups of people passionate about music, recording techniques and above all music reproduction in the home. These are people who have devoted their lives to pursue audio excellence without being constrained by the shackles of commercial pressures. These artisans are driven by their passion to recreate music in its very purest form and to get to the very essence of the composition whatever the financial expenditure. They are unconstrained by bookkeepers and accountants keen to drive the bottom line and they have a single-minded obsession to achieve true high fidelity at any cost. As a result of this fixation on excellence the works of art they produce are often extraordinary, unique and beautiful. Over the years I have had the rare privilege to get to know some of these artisans and I have been honoured to be allowed to experience the aural pleasure the fruits of their labour can bring. At G Point Audio we have hand-picked the very finest of these hifi craftsmen and have the greatest pleasure in being able to share their works of art with you." Find out more:
