Welcome to the May newsletter from Yorkshire AV
We hope you are all keeping safe and well and enjoying some of the lockdown de-restrictions in the UK.
Inside this newsletter are a few exciting updates and a discount code for our HiFi bundles and AV Bundles to help keep you entertained!
First and foremost - we're delighted to announce that Yorkshire AV are now stockists of Elac - one of the oldest HiFi and speaker manufacturer in the world.
We're focussing on their high end equipment - including the latest Solano, VELA and Navis range of loudspeakers. We've had the Solano for a few weeks on demo and was absolutely blown away with the modern appearance, the super high quality of the JET driver and the sheer bass control that even the smallest of the bookshelf speakers can handle.
In our demo room is the Solano 5 channel system (2 x floorstanding, 2 x bookshelf and the centre speaker), supplemented with a subwoofer from REL.
We also have the VELA FS407 coming to the showroom too.
We're creating an "on-wall" demo area with 3 of the most popular options for customers to get a sense for the appearance and the sound characteristics of these discrete speakers.
Monitor Audio have 3 different speakers in their 'Sound Frame' range:
Sound Frame 1 - pictured directly above is a 3 way speaker with 4" pivoting IDC (mid/HF) driver and a 6.5" bass C-CAM driver. The cabinet is a slender 3.5" deep and comes in gloss white or gloss black. These are used generally as a stereo pair (note - sold individually).
Dimensions (HxWxD): 539 x 389 x 87.5 mm
Sound Frame 2 - again is a 3 way speaker with 4" pivoting IDC (mid/HF) driver and a 6.5" bass C-CAM driver. The cabinet is a slender 3.5" deep and comes in gloss white or gloss black. These are used generally as a stereo pair (note - sold individually). These are a longer and thinner speaker - generally used under a TV as a centre speaker.
Dimensions (HxWxD): 790 x 240 x 87.5 mm
Sound Frame 3 - The SoundFrame 3 On-Wall has a 2-way configuration with a pivoting 1-inch tweeter module and a 4-inch C-CAM driver. These are used generally as a surround/rear surround speaker (note - sold individually).
Dimensions (HxWxD): 289 x 289 x 77.5 mm
DALI have an on-wall / LCR speaker in the Oberon and Opticon MK2 range that we stock.
Oberon On-Wall - features a 5.25" SMC wood fibre driver and 29mm dome tweeter. Available in all 4 of the Oberon finishes - these speakers are a little deeper than the Monitor Audio units but subsequently have a little more dimension to the sound output (especially in the mid-low frequencies).
Dimensions (HxWxD): 385 x 245 x 120 mm
Opticon MK2 LCR - incorporates all the best technologies from the OPTICON MK2 series in a low-profile, wall mounted enclosure, that can serve as both left, centre or right speakers – hence the name LCR. It features the desirable hybrid HF unit.
Dimensions (HxWxD): 482 x 285 x 128 mm

Another new label, and this one is a British manufacturer: Leema Acoustics.
Leema Acoustics was originally founded in 1998 as a means of further exploring the fanatical interest in audio reproduction of its two founders ex-BBC engineers Lee Taylor and Mallory Nicholls. Their first project focussed on pushing the boundaries of loudspeaker design, determined as they were to create a miniature loudspeaker capable of outperforming a system many times its size.
Their first product, the Tucana integrated amplifier, was released early in 2006, winning the distinguished Hi Fi News amplifier of the year award later that year. Shortly afterwards, the Antila CD player was introduced and once again, almost immediately won the prestigious What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision best CD player award in 2007.
Since then, they've gone on to product true audiophile electronics that are ranked in the top 10 Amplifiers of all time. Quite an achievement! And we're going to have an epic range on display and available to demo / buy online in the next 6 weeks.
Stay tuned for more info on this amazing brand and what we'll be pairing them with in due course.
And finally ....
There are some significant price increases starting to hit the industry - with many brands increasing their prices from anywhere from 5% up to 25% on electronic components.
We're giving one big final push of the stock we purchased at the lower rates and giving you a bit of a deal on home cinema and hifi bundles on our website.
From Tuesday 25th May until midnight on the 31st May (bank holiday monday) - we're offering 10% off all bundles from our store.
If there is something you're interested in - please drop us a message if the bundle isn't created and we'll see what we can do for you. This will also include furniture if you're in the market for HiFi racks, stands etc so long as it's bought with a qualifying item.
