Why our customers trust us?

HiFi Vintage Ltd. is a private company based in Great Britain. We started out as vintage audio fans and analog sound enthusiasts and over the last few years we have become one of the UK’s leading second-hand hi-fi retailers. We sell nostalgic, vintage audio equipment around the world, providing our customers with unique musical experiences.

That’s why we keep looking for and buying high-quality used hi-fi equipment. We are particularly interested in devices from the 70s, 80s and early 90s – reel to reels tape recorder, cassette decks, turntables, speakers, amplifiers and receivers. We are not interested in modern brands and home theatre systems. We don’t buy and don’t repairs Bang&Olufsen equipments.

Send us on email with details of your equipments: brand and models, so if you are unsure, you are more than welcome to send us a picture of the item/s. If we will interested, we aim to come back to you with an offer within 24 hours.
However, our response time might be a bit longer over weekends, bank holidays and busy periods.

As a company, we also repair hi-fi audio equipment. We must check the equipment to diagnose the problem and estimate the repair. The diagnosis is free. Please, contact us by phone or e-mail before you bring the equipment for repair.



Our basic rule is to sell fully working equipment. Before sale, each device undergoes a thorough inspection and necessary repairs – replacement of worn elements, lubrication and tests.

I do not make a so-called “recap” of all pieces of equipment which I grab in my hands. Many times old suitable quality capacitors are better than new Chinese stuff.

No matter how great equipment you buy, you must remember that you have purchased an item over 30 years old. You must have basic knowledge about its use and servicing of its.

I am always happy to support my clients with my knowledge and experience.

We send orders within 1-2 business days of cleared payment. In the United Kingdom, most of the parcels we send via Parcelforce. Delivery time is one business day. Prices start from £8.50 and depend on the weight and size of the equipment. If you have some particular preference for delivery, please ask us before you purchase.

Orders from abroad are priced individually, depending on the destination country. We always choose large and well-known courier companies (UPS, DPD, FedEx).

You can check the shipping price by “ADD TO BASKET” and entering the postcode and destination country. It is not binding. Any time you can remove all items from the basket.
If the price of postage is high or an item is available only in a personal collection, don’t hesitate to ask about other postage options. We could find a solution.

Why don’t we ship on the same day? The equipment we sell comes second-hand, so most often it does not have the original packaging. Therefore, we need time to safely pack the device you have purchased. In the case of large and heavy devices such as reel-to-reel tape recorders, the shipping time may be longer.

Very large and heavy items – over 35 kg – are shipped on a pallet, which significantly extends the delivery time. Additionally, remember that pallet deliveries are made to your driveway and re-delivery is not possible.
