Bernard Dickinson began back in 1959 when, driven by his love for enjoying music at its best, my father Bernard opened a radio shop. Since then, much has altered in the world of radio and television but I am proud that my business has embraced those changes and met with much enthusiasm the new world that this digital era brings to our lives.

One thing that hasn’t changed in more than sixty years is our core belief in providing only the best solutions to customers’ home entertainment requests. Over this time we have consistently brought you the very best in home entertainment and technology, continuously evolving in an ever-changing and fast-paced industry.

We were delighted to be the only independent retailer in the world featured by Jens Bang (son of Bang & Olufsen co-founder Peter Bang) in his book on the history of B&O and thrilled with his declaration that we have turned audio visual 'installation into an art form' of our own:

“The Dickinson family’s way of doing business is like Bang & Olufsen’s. They have been around for generations, developing the brand and the distribution in a partnership that is all about people. Sincere, honest and committed.”
Jens Bang, From Spark to Icon

Our connection with Bang & Olufsen is an important part of our history, but we are also our own strong brand too. It is our level of customer care and attention to detail that has set us apart all these years, and that original passion for the very best quality in audio, visual and now lighting and shade technology is what still drives us forward today.

We have many brands and technologies in our tool box, and not being tied to any one marque, allows us the freedom to create outstanding experiences that fall within design requirement and budget.

We are more excited than ever by the endless possibilities for technology to help in creating a beautiful, design-conscious and smart home. We harness the latest and very best technology to enhance your home in a way that not only brings you the joy of the best audio and visual quality but also satisfies your desire for great interior design and provides the perfect lighting and shade as well.

Make an appointment to come to our Fulwood showroom with your plans, room ideas or audio visual requirements and we will help you achieve the exact look, sound and atmosphere you desire, from planning and installation to an unrivalled aftercare.
