If you like the idea of watching your favourite bands perform or want to discover new music, then there are a variety of streaming channels available on YouTube. We frequently enjoy content from the following channels:
Music on The Go
If you intend to keep yourself fit during the coming weeks of isolation and find yourself outdoors, then you may wish to access streaming services on your mobile device. If your mobile data package provides you with limited data, then check out the TP-LINK M7350 Mobile Wi-Fi dongle; you’ll need to purchase a Data SIM card (such as a 24GB card from Three). There’s an upfront cost of £60 for the data, with no monthly charge, and is valid for 2 years, giving you a lot of data to enjoy whilst out walking the dog, jogging or even cycling like our Simon!
If you find yourself in need of a pair of headphones for when you are venturing out and about, or a pair of closed-back headphones to minimise upsetting the family, then check out the fantastic selection we have available on our website. Take a look.
Cleaning your Vinyl
Why not make good use of time and give your cherished vinyl collection a clean? We have a varied selection of cleaning solutions available, from the Knosti Disco Antistat manual cleaning system to the Clearaudio Double Matrix automatic cleaning system, an engineering masterpiece. Also, it’s all well and good cleaning the surface of your records, however some of the dirt will remain on the inner record sleeve and therefore sat ready and waiting to make contact with the record surface. We recommend purchasing a quantity of Nagaoka Anti-Static Record Sleeves to help maintain a clean playing surface.

With spring now upon us, why not clear your lounge of your prized CD collection and replace it with an Innuos Music Server?
