Retrophonic started has a hobby in 2011 with the very personal agenda so that HK Loo, the owner, can buy vinyl records and hifi equipment cheaply for himself. This comes as a result of an impulsive decision made rather hastily after hearing vinyl records for the first time.
Within 7 days of being intoxicated by the rich and warm sound of analogue music; and with no business plan, no prior experience of owning any hifi system, and despite never heard of Nirvana, Punk Flyod, Miles Davis and with only three thousand dollars of capital, Retrophonic Records is born.
Fast forward to 2017, we have expanded twice and now operates from a 400 square feet showroom and a 200 square feet warehouse at Chinatown Plaza.
To be the go-to destination for entry level audiophiles and vinyl records enthusiasts
Simply put, we aspire to help you get the best sounding stereo system within your budget. We specialised in turntables in the price range of $300 to $3000, and hifi system less than $5000.
Over the years, we have accumulated a lot of experience. In 2016, Retrophonic sold more than 400 units of turntables and established itself as one of the top retailers for various brands such as NAD, PSB, TEAC, Audio Technica, Grado, Goldring and Ortofon. What make us unique, is that we carry multiple brands of turntables; and they are all setup ready for A/B testing.
We are known in the industry as a very chillax, friendly space for music lovers. This is reflected in our cozy, feel-at-home showroom as well as our easy going service attitude. We believe that having fun is the most important thing in life.
