This weekend SCV return to the UK's longest-running high-end audio show at the incredible Royal Ascot Racing Club. Armed with a slew of exciting new products and even new brands, SCV aim to offer a formidable tour of some of the industry’s most impressive HiFi technology currently available, all in one grandstanding building.
Due to the current time of national mourning, the UK HiFi Show Live has been postponed. Further details will follow as soon as available.
What’s On Show
This month SCV warmly welcomed Manley Labs to its portfolio of home audio brands. From the Headphone Zone, the Manley Absolute Headphone Amplifier will be available for demo alongside several high-end headphone models from Meze Audio; while in suite 651-652 Manley’s Steelhead RC tube preamplifier and Snapper tube mono-blocks will be in full force as part of our Magellan 40th Anniversary demo display.
Fresh from its launch earlier in 2022, the 109 Pro open-backed headphone powered by 50mm custom designed drivers will be available to demo from the Panoramic Headphone Zone, along with established Meze high-end favourites Elite, Empyrean and the closed-back Liric.
