Welcome to Classic HiFi – and we are exactly that – we source, test, service and sell classically styled amplifiers, turntables & speakers from the 70s-80s….…………………….the ‘Golden Era’ of High Fidelity.

Our shop front is situated in cosmopolitan Newtown, in Sydney’s Inner West, the epicenter of the vinyl revival where there are also a score of new & used record stores, many of whom, we have referral processes in place.

If you are not able to visit the store, wonder through this site, and if you find something that interests you, use our email link, identify the item to us, and we will provide whatever help is necessary. We will do our best to keep the on-line range of products up to date. Payment facilities include direct transfer to our bank account, credit card facilities are available in-store and over the phone, and for international buyers, Paypal is preferred.

We are not a home theatre store but specialize in stereo only – silver fronted amplifiers, retro turntables & quality pairs of speakers which can mount a sound-stage superior to any theatre set-up.

Our professional network includes records stores and service technicians.

Whilst our store prices are fixed, we do offer a 10% discount for complete systems (amp, turntable & speakers). Be assured, all our stock are fully serviced, turntables all have new stylii, and all stock carries our 3 month warranty. We welcome back our ‘babes’ beyond the warranty period for servicing at discounted rates – and remember, electronics from the 70s-80s can be serviced, whereas servicing most modern equipment is problematic, even throw aways!
