The Little Audio Company is a fresh new retailer based in the vibrant bustle of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, with easy access by road or rail. We are a 15 minute walk from New Street Station, and the Bullring and Grand Central shopping centres, or a few minutes on the tram.

We are intending to be a little different from many conventional hi-fi retailers, hence the decision to adopt an appointment only approach. This allows the customer to be the focus of attention minus all the usual retail interruptions. Your booked time is spent purely with you. Opening hours (10:30am-5:00pm Mon-Fri) are an indication of when the phone will be manned, and aren't necessarily fixed with regards to booked demonstrations. Saturdays will be via prior appointment.

We hope to bring you some very interesting products in the future, and more than one approach to any given situation, but rest assured that all manufacturers and products are very carefully chosen for their sound quality and reliability first and foremost, as well as the value represented in the current market. We will particularly specialise in solutions for those with limited space or smaller rooms. I'll bring news of those who get on board as and when they happen - a few are being discussed as I type. Here's a list of the current brands whose products will be available for audition:

Ophidian loudspeakers
Golden Ear loudspeakers
KEF loudspeakers
Monitor Audio Radius loudspeakers
Amphion loudspeakers
SVS subwoofers

Innuos digital storage/media servers

Bluesound multi-room and streaming products

Chord Mojo

Convert Technologies Plato system

Tangent electronics
Cyrus electronics
Moon Neo Ace electronics

Audio Technica turntables and cartridges
Elipson tuntables

AudioQuest headphones
Audio Technica headphones

Custom Design equipment stands and supports

The Little Audio Company is now closed over the Christmas period, and will re-open on Wednesday the 4th of January 2017. I will still be on the end of an email however ( for those queries that really need to be answered there and then!

I'll take this opportunity to wish all here at CU a very merry Christmas!

Early stages, but our website is now up and running, and more will be added to it over the coming week or so. Stay tuned, as over the next few months there'll be some very interesting products...


Ophidian at The Little Audio Company

We are pleased to announce that the dinky range of speakers from Ophidian have arrived at The Little Audio Company and are currently running in ready for auditioning. These speakers may be small, but they're surprisingly capable! As you can see, the entry level Minimo is no wider than a CD case...


The Mojo is slightly bigger as you can see, and uses dual mid/bass drivers...


And the top of the range Mambo is a three-way floorstander of similar depth and width as the Mojo. Effectively, you have a Mojo at the top, with the mid/bass drivers reproducing only midrange, and bass is taken care of by the four bass drivers below. The mid/bass drivers throughout the range might only be 90mm diameter, but what they lack in the physical department they certainly make up for in the quality stakes.

British made too, for those that like to support the UK economy :)
