Mike opened his first shop in Yeovil back in 1987, stocking & demonstrating a range of quality hi-fi products not before available outside of the larger towns.
Mike's enthusiasm for music, especially live concerts, led him along the road in search of a realistic & enjoyable sound system for the home. On his quest Mike admits that he made many mistakes, often being seduced by 'flavour of the month' magazine reviews & cosmetic appeal. The pressure of the commission based salesman also took it's toll. In an endeavor to fulfill his desire, Mike decided to make a career change, leaving the security of a family based business, to work in a reputable hi-fi shop (Radfords) for over twelve years before branching out on his own.
The staff at Mike Manning Audio are all music and home cinema enthusiasts, not commission based salesmen. Between them they have amassed over 50 years experience of demonstrating, selling & installing 'quality' audio and video equipment. Their customer's have learned to trust their judgement and expertise.
Demonstrations are carried out in a relaxed & un-pressured manner, making it a more pleasurable experience choosing your heart's (and Ears) desire.
The product range that we demonstrate and sell is carefully chosen by us for it's performance......Not review or commercially led.
We have just moved into our all new store at 9, Silver Street in the middle of Yeovil after 24 years in our previous premises...
This Grade 2 Listed building used to be the 'Kings Arms' pub. Now the only things 'on tap' are great sounds with fantastic home cinema and, of course, multi-room systems.
We have tried to make your experience as pleasant as possible with surroundings more in line with the your own home...i.e. 'real life', not just a shop filled with shelves and shelves of black boxes.
