One of the cons in being a single lady is you have to do things like this for yourself. Boys just know about gadgets intrinsically right?
Anyway, anytime I break something electronicy I own I gotta go in and explain vaguely what I'm after, usually some form of cable or attachment thingy. This place are really helpful though. They're more kinda specialized than places like Curry's and they are known for their sound equipment. My housemate makes her own electronic music on Ableton and recommends this place for music production stuff. And she really knows what she's talking about.
Guys who are into gadgets would wet themselves upon entering this store, for me its just a chore though! A great little shop with helpful staff.
There really aren't enough small electronic retailers based in the city. This place is somewhere you can be assured of getting that elusive and obscure lead that nowhere else seems to have heard of, let alone stock.
I was after a voltage convertor for a large 300watt amplifier I had. I bought it from the US and it was a different voltage rating, 110v.
The staff are very helpful and friendly, I was a bit unsure of what exactly I needed but they were quick to take in my ropey description.
In general this place does have a huge range of amplifiers, headphones, parts, scarts, lights, you name it, this place will almost certainly stock it.
I ended up finding a good scart lead while I was there too. Pricey at £20 but definatly worth it compared to the quality I was getting with a cheap skinny lead I purchased on ebay.
Not a huge chain like Currys, give this place a go if you need your electronic lust satified.
This shop is just brilliant! If you're in anyway into electronics, gadgets or music then you're due a visit down here. The selection of electrical goods is mind boggling ranging from USB turntables, hairdryers, pocket radios right through laptops and onto more high end Dj equipment and music production software/hardware.
In fact the DJ section is huge with all sorts of turntables, PA's and even some swanky looking lighting systems with controllers etc. The highlight of the shop for me is the huge array of leads for pretty much any audio or video application, if they don't have what you need they will also make up a bespoke on for you there and then which is also a nice touch. Love it.
Pros: Helpful, knowledgeable staff, huge selection.
Enticed by the juke boxes, Roberts radios and retro record players I made my first foray into the Electronics Centre. Sound equipment is the specialty here but at the time I noticed they did electrical repairs, including computers. So when my monitor crashed soon afterward I thought in my wisdom that this would be useful place to bring it, in my current position of being without a car. What a mistake I made. As is so other the case with electrical things these days it's more economic to buy a replacement than try to get it mended, which I had suspected, especially if you take it somewhere like the Electronic centre. It's taken nearly three weeks since I stupidly told them to go ahead with the repair for the necessary part to fail to arrive. What's more the man tried to argue that actually wasn't slow. Even if you aren't coming up to the mark there is a way of being helpful to a customer to smooth things over. It's called customer service. If I ever do see the monitor again I won't be back there after I collect it. No chance.
