What's On In May [2022]

What's On In May [2022]


To quote that gory medieval TV show... "WINTER IS COMING!"

It feels like it's been a long drawn out build up with all this rain. But for us in the Northern Rivers, it is traditionally a serene time of year. It means fewer tourists & more space for locals to enjoy their own backyard.

It's our favourite time of year for things like pea & ham soup, a glass of whisky & cozying up in front of the hi-fi system. It's actually the reason why PrimaLuna is our 'Product of the month' for May. But more on that later.

For those who have been asking, yes, we are still kicking along after the great flood of 2022. In fact, it’s been an unseasonably good month of trade for April, & the continued momentum really is encouraging. It spurs us on, with thoughts of opening another retail space one day becoming more achievable. Nothing official yet, but we will tell you more when we have something to share.

So, What's on in May at LENC?

It's a compact one this month, but we have some awesome deals for you:


1] Product of the month: PrimaLuna amplifiers

It's time again for our "Product of the month" - for May we have the full suite of PrimaLuna amplifiers & tubes on offer. 

With Winter here next month, we thought it was a good excuse to cozy up with some tube amplification. You'll get 15% off any PrimaLuna when you use the promo code "WINTERWARMER" this month.

Check out our PrimaLuna Evo 400 integrated amplifier YouTube video here, and the promotion here. Or reach out via LiveChat to see if Moonriver is the right fit for you.

How nice is this new Record Puck E from Pro-Ject?

If you have a solid collection of thin 70's vinyl, the a record puck is a must. It weighs down the record, evening out any warps while pressing it flat against the platter for smooth playback & transference of energy. The Record Puck E comes in Silver & Black finishes.
