Wax Records Opens at Moorgate Acoustics

Some dreams take years to realise

Our friends at Moorgate Acoustics has been selling good quality hi-fi equipment for 37 years. But this year company director Paul Hobson has finally realised his dream of opening a record store in the basement of their Woodseats showroom.

It’s finally come full circle - we can now offer our customers the music they love downstairs and the equipment needed to best enjoy it upstairs. I’ve been a music fan since my childhood and have always wanted to try and introduce more people to the thrill of great music. Now I get to have two cracks of the whip in the same building. We even have a stage for some live music!

The resurgence of vinyl is overdue. People who love music like it’s warmth and it’s tangibility. Phones and tablets have disconnected us from the thrill of enjoying music. Vinyl introduces better sound and the hands on nature that is so often lacking with ‘devices’.
