The High Fidelity Sound Story
Armstrong Audio is a leading specialist with 40 years' experience in home, high-end and professional audio equipment repairs.
Our rich history and wealth of experience means we are uniquely placed when it comes to audio repairs.
Established in 1932 the company was originally called 'Armstrong Wireless & Television Ltd.'. Based in Camden, London, the company began by manufacturing public address systems, radios and televisions for public use in WWII. The advent of the home high fidelity market in the 1950s saw the company successfully diversify and manufacture "The High Fidelity Sound" range of home radios, amplifiers and receivers through to the late 1970s. Combining good performance and stylish looks, the 600 Series amplifier attracted an avid fan base with members still bringing them back for a service to this day.
The 1980s saw consumers shift towards the growing overseas audio market. This led the company to move away from manufacturing and into the service and repair side of the industry. From here and relocating to Walthamstow, London, Armstrong Audio developed it's reputation as a leading audio repair specialist with unrivalled knowledge and expertise.
In addition to our rich audio history, Armstrong Audio added a coffee shop to the existing repair shop that serves speciality coffee, baked goods and more. So for more on our history, please visit our shop where you can enjoy a great cup of coffee and see vintage audio equipment on display alongside other Armstrong memorabilia. Alternatively, if you have any Armstrong equipment or stories from our past, we would very much like to hear from you.
