Our Heritage

World famous Doug Brady Hi-Fi was born in Liverpool in the late 1950’s at the same time as turntables, vinyl and The Beatles. This cultural revolution with Liverpool at the centre, heralded the very first ‘Brady’ shop in the city's Smithdown Road.

It was the start of something amazing and as word got around, turntable sales rocketed. Success soon followed with a flag ship store launched in Covent Garden London.

Founder Douglas Brady had a passion for all things music and was instrumental in establishing some of the UK’s finest ‘High Fidelity’ audio electronic and turntable brands such as Naim, Rega and Chord.

Doug Brady Hi Fi was actually one of the very first retailers to stock Naim back in the late 1960's. Doug Brady (founder of Doug Brady HiFi) and Julian Vereker shared the same passion for absolute perfection in audio listening and that 'Music must come first'.

In the early 1980’s the business moved to a more central location half way between Manchester and Liverpool at Kingsway North, Warrington, Cheshire and that’s where we are based to this day.

Turntables are still a core part of the business, however streaming devices, iPad & iPhone docks, loudspeakers, in-ceiling speakers, CD players, amplification, cable and Home Cinema systems are all areas that the business excels in.

 

Our Values

The team at Doug Brady Hi-Fi all have a passion, love and encyclopedic knowledge for audio whether it is a top of the range home cinema setup through to what types and options you should consider when putting together a system regardless of budget or type of usage. Cables, connectors, amps, sources, bandwidth, turntables, floorstanders or standmount speakers all have to be carefully considered and we know and have experience of 1,000’s of products which are available, so making an informed opinion is an easy one to achieve.

It’s about making anything you listen or watch sound and look better through clever choice of equipment, set up, design and smart installation.

We only stock brands and products which really do deliver. Each product must achieve true quality at the price offered, the best buy at that price point for sound or vision, design and look, technology and functionality, reliability and longevity - all must be delivered.

Our core principle is to provide each individual customer with the very best sound and vision experience in their home regardless of whether their budget is £1,000 or £100,000 though an informed and unbiased opinion.
