January 2011 Newsletter, feat. Olive 3HD, Roth Audio and VAT News.

Happy New Year to all and thank you for your support in 2010!

VAT Increase

As if you haven’t heard already, VAT went up to 20% on 4th Jan 2011. Our response? Well, so far, nothing. We’ve kept 2010 prices and will continue to do so for as long as we can.

That said, some manufacturers have put up prices regardless of the VAT situation so we’ll have to adjust some of our pricing to keep up.


The Olive is the size of a normal CD player yet has a hard drive onboard that will store all your CDs, which you then access via the touchscreen (includes album artwork etc) whilst all those bulky CDs gather dust in your loft. Simple to use, remote control, 1000s of internet radio stations, ethernet connection to your router and great sound quality too. £899 in black or silver funky finish.

Upgrade to the Olive 4HD and you get bigger hard drive, better quality recording and wireless connection to your router. £2200.

More money than sense? Get the Olive 6HD for the ultimate Olive experience but be prepared to spend £4600 for the priviledge.

Want multi room use? The Olive 2 Player picks up all the music held on your main Olive and plays it through the amplifier/speakers in another room. Or 10 rooms for that matter. £699.

Did you know Roth also produce a range of tasty looking speakers too? Their OL range has been upgraded to the OLi range (no, we don’t think that means fuel injection either) in a range consisting of 5 models from £109 to £799. Check out the Roth range here
