The Isle of Man has a new AV specialist in Absolute Abode. The new retailer is offering a range of premium products in a designer living space with views across the Irish Sea. Company director Mark O’Brien is ‘delighted to be able to open Absolute Abode on the Isle of Man. Our first living room space was created in our London store, O’Brien Hi-Fi, over 10 years ago – this created a fresh experience for enjoying hi-fi and was one of the first of its type. We felt this space was required to broaden the appeal of listening to music at home, previously a concept that suggested large boxes and lots of cables! We wanted to show a living room could also be a beautiful place to enjoy music (and movies) without resembling a laboratory!’
Its aim is to bring music and movies to stunning life and to integrate this with simple to use technology by Crestron including remote lighting and blind control. Everything is designed, supplied and installed with a focus on energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact. Amplifiers, streamers, turntables, DACs, cables and loudspeakers from renowned manufacturers such as Moon, Sonus Faber, VPI, Naim and Nordost will be available to experience in the new store.
