New Lockdown Blog now loaded
The strangest year anyone has ever had is over, thankfully!
We have survived shop lockdowns, supply shortages and delivery restrictions and ended up with a busy year, for which we thank you
In line with the latest guidelines the Lyric Hifi store is closed until further notice, probably February.
From Monday January 4th some of us will be back in for online/telephone sales and shipping. We expect to be able to deliver though it is unclear as to whether we can actually install in your home, probably not.
Call or email us about your requirements,
Keep safe, hope to be able to do demonstrations again soon!
New Opening hours Mon-Friday 10-5,closed Saturdays

Can you believe it, Lyric Hifi celebrates 40 years in business!
Not certain I believe it but it was in Jan80 that 2 guys opened a hifi shop on the Stranmillis Road. We decided that we would choose only the best gear and let people hear why. Nothing has changed, we still sell the best gear, we still don't sell second best, and we still let you hear what you get for your money. See the latest BLOG

We had an excellent show in Dublin, see BLOG, rooms by Linn, Naim, Kef, B&W, Rega and Sugden
Naim showed their Statement model, a £159,000 amplifier !!
Linn did comparisons to show why their Katalyst DACs are such a breakthrough and also played their full Exakt Akubarik system, a snip at £ 32,700
Kef played the famous LS50s and also the R5s and then the Blade 2 speakers, a mere £ 18,000 per pair, we have a pair here if you want a listen!
In the Rega room a Planar 10 with the new RB3000 tonearm, Apheta3 MC cartridge and the Reference Aura MC Phono stage played into the new Atheos Reference amplifier. This was widely acclaimed as one of the best sounds of the show, despite being only 5% of the price of the most expensive system! And we have Planar10s and Aethos here too !
Rega offer great value at all cost levels

Lyric Hifi is pleased to announce a new service for our clients: CD Ripping
With the advent of Digital Streaming systems music selection is now so simple, with brilliant performance, yet the boring task of transferring your precious cd collection to hard disk at full quality does could put you off the whole idea. Don't let it!
HELP is at hand, for a very small pecuniary remuneration!
We have invested in an automated ripping system to take away all the effort and leave you with just the pleasure, the listening to uncompressed music. Now you no longer have to trust your unique collection to a carrier and send it to England and back, along with the expense. Here is how it works:
Collect as many 100 disc spindles as you need from us and simply set your cds on to them. Drop these with us along with your hard drive and pick it up in a few days, depending how many you have and how busy we are.
We will rip to your preferred format, usually FLAC Lossless Uncompressed, and also give you a report on the accuracy achieved.
Costs vary according to quantity of cds
Up to 100 99p each, 101-200 95p, 201-400 85p
401 and more 79p
If you would like to supply your collection in jewel cases then add 20p per disc for the handling
Your collection is then ready to connect to your Linn DS, Naim Uniti/ND, Cyrus Stream, Sonos, Denon, Marantz, in fact any of Lyric Hifi's music streaming solutions, instantly controlled by ipad/ipod/laptop. Easy peasy!
At Lyric we have the broadest range of stock you will find anywhere in Ireland.
With 30 years experience as a specialist and performance orientated retailer we know a great product from an ordinary one: and our Product Policy means we do not stock just ordinary ones.
We look, listen, test, and then recommend a selected range of the best performing products across a wide price range, so you can find the very best system you can afford!
Over the years we have won national awards for our commitment to performance quality products and we are very proud of this, giving our clients confidence that we know what we are talking about and that our support and advice is a valuable part of your hifi system, cinema system, or new home project.
The best sound, the best vision, the best service
