The Home of Hi-Fi - Kent's leading Hi-Fi specialist since 1996

About Us

Welcome to Home Media

Kent’s Leading Hi-Fi Specialist

Union Street, Maidstone has remained The Home of Hi-Fi since 1996. During that time, our product range and services have continued to grow. You’ll be hard pushed to find another showroom offering such a wealth of products backed by a team of friendly and enthusiastic people who genuinely want to help and provide a solution for your Audio Visual requirements. Our team are passionate about music and the equipment to play it on. That same passion and enthusiasm is passed on to our customers who visit our showroom.

Buy With Confidence

You will find our staff to be personable and enthusiastic about helping you, regardless of whether your spend is £20 or £20,000. We have two comfortable demonstration rooms (with a third currently in construction) for you to audition products before purchase. If you have never owned a quality audio or Home Cinema system before and are uncertain about anything, then we are happy to explain and help you to the best of our ability.

If Things Go Wrong

From time to time, your cherished purchase may require repair. If this does happen during the warranty period, we will endeavour to keep your system working by offering you the loan of a similar product whilst your faulty product is repaired (subject to availability).

Installation Service

Having decided to spend your hard-earned money on a new Hi-Fi or Home Cinema, unless it is correctly installed in your home, the system will not be performing at its best. For an additional charge, our team will set up your system and help you to achieve the maximum enjoyment from your new purchase.

Bespoke installations are a key element in providing complete customer satisfaction. We are of the opinion that a correctly installed Hi-Fi or Home Cinema system will perform at its very best as a result of care and consideration to the set up and will reward it’s owners with value for money in return.

It is often useful for a member of our team to pay a visit to your home to give you higher quality advice on your installation. We take time to carefully integrate your proposed system, with consideration to surrounds and decor.

Customer Care

Our customers have travelled to our showroom not just from our home County of Kent but from various places including Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, East Sussex, Essex, Hampshire, London, Norfolk, Suffolk, West Sussex, and even overseas including Sydney and Cairo! Why? Simply because we are genuinely interested in providing you with a solution that suits your personal requirements.

Are you disabled? If you experience difficulty getting around and would rather a home visit from our staff, don’t worry, help is at hand! Our staff can provide advice in the comfort of your own home for a potential purchase you may have in mind.
