Conan, don't tell me you've still got one!

No I don't still have one(found the image on the web) but we still play mostly vinyl from that era,I use a more modern record cleaner these days.

If you are into your 70s music I can't recommend Johnnie Walker on radio 2 on Sunday afternoons enough

Definitely Audio Hypermarkets as of late '72, I bought a system with a Teleton amp from them at this time. Sevenoaks HiFi rings a bell though - I think they might have occupied the site slightly later.

I used them in around 1972 and bought a Sharp Cassette Deck and the 30watt per channel Metrosound Amplifier, also that bug as well.

Another amplifier I bought from Comet up the Rochester/Maidstone road by the start of the airport.

The only thing then it was called Sevenoaks Hi Fi  !!

So was it Audio Hypermarkets first or Sevenoaks Hi Fi ?

I expect Audio Hypermarkets were first.

There was another one called the dust-bug that I also had at one time. LP's seemed to attract dust like magnets attract iron filings.

A "Metrosound Groovemaster" - one of those things with a felt pad and brush designed to keep fluff and dust away from your stylus!
