Report on The Dansette.
Very beautiful and sounds amazing, and very loud!
We are very pleased with it and it will surely give us many fun hours - and even some parties later in the year. Absolutely excellent work and wonderfully restored
Thank you again, Bob, for a first class service. The communication was speedy and helpful, the updates and photos on the restoration process were detailed and really whetted our appetite, and the level of care with the restoration was outstanding. The packing and all the info on the machine and modern additions is first-rate.
The sound is amazing with very responsive bass and treble, and it is very loud!
I shall certainly recommend you to other interested audiophiles.
Very best wishes Jo
I somehow thought my customer would be happy with her restored 1963 Dansette senator...
My Word, Wow, WOW!!! I could just cry seeing that, it looks so amazing! Oh my goodness you have worked complete magic. It looks so fantastic Bob - thank you so much. I can’t wait to see it for real and more importantly listen to it again! My Granny used to play all the records from the musicals (and blooming Julio Iglesias ha ha!) but can’t wait to listen to my families records together. It will be so fun over the Easter holidays. Again it looks unreal - full glory of 1963 ha ha. Thanks again - ever so much!
You could say that Terence is happy with the restoration of his 1959 Dansette RG31 Radiogram...
Bob that’s ridiculous! She’s utterly beautiful.
I have no words and the biggest smile on my face!
I’m stunned. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant from start to finish. I knew I’d made the right choice getting in touch with you. Thank you ever so much. Terence
A lovely testimonial has just arrived this afternoon from Peter. This stunning Dansette HiFi MKII was intended for his daughter. Looks like a change of plan is in hand!...
It is stunning and cannot believe the quality of your workmanship. The old paperwork included is also a nice touch and found a Christmas label in the envelope. You may have me back for another. Smitten with it and I may keep it for myself and get my daughter a different one.
Peter from Sittingbourne
Thank you Bob , The Dansette is beautiful and sounds so good! She’s a little beaut ! Spent last night with a bottle of red and old albums ! Was amazing ! You’ve been fab from start to finish, and I’d recommend you to anyone thanks again.

A lovely testimonial has just arrived this evening from Alex just a day after he took delivery of his beautiful turquoise Dansette Conquest Auto as a birthday present for his wife...
"In my search for a 1960’s record player as a present for my wife, I was very fortunate to find Bobs website.
Bob is clearly passionate about his work and couldn’t have been more helpful or knowledgable, explaining the key differences between the various Dansette record players and patiently answering my questions. After much thought, I choose a blue 1963 Dansette Conquest Auto player.
We received the Dansette today and after carefully unpacking it, my wife couldn’t have been more delighted. It both looks and sounds absolutely fantastic.
If you are looking for a high quality, restored, Dansette record player that, is probably better than it was originally you should definitely give Bob a call."

The following messages are from Freddy.H in London, clearly thrilled with the restoration of his vintage Dansette Conquest Auto circa 1961...
Amazing. You have turned back the years. Incredible job. So well done.
Can’t believe it’s going to be so good again after all this time.
I can’t thank you enough for all the dedicated patience to achieve this level of renovation.
Just unpacked and played my first record for decades.
It’s going brilliantly.
I am delighted to have it back to life again.
With many, many thanks.

Good evening, Bob
The Conquest arrived earlier today, living entirely up to expectation. For you to deliver one outstanding piece (the A35 Stereophonic pre-Christmas 2020) was an achievement in itself. To deliver a second, to the same exacting standard, is testimony to your enthusiasm for these wonderful machines. Working from home has just been made infinitely better! I am more than happy to recommend your services to anyone who wants to experience listening in vintage style but who may be undecided.

The Stereophonic A35 is a thing of beauty. As you know, this was a Christmas gift for our eighteen year old daughter. We struck while the iron was hot; taking delivery c. three weeks before the day. Other than checking the A35 over to ensure no damage in transit (how could there be when your packaging is second only to the attention you have given to Dansette), we had to wait patiently to hear it for the first time. We couldn't be happier. Well, we could if the A35 had been left where first placed on Christmas Day but, as a gift, it was always destined for our daughter's bedroom, which is where it now resides and where she is thoroughly enjoying her first experience of vinyl, on a proper machine. We are, perhaps, a little jealous that we no longer have unfettered access but we at least have access and that can only be a good thing. However, that makes you a bad man, Bob Amos, insofar as a gap that was fleetingly filled by the Dansette is still a gap; one that needs filling.........and we now know where to come! Please keep doing what you do, so that others might enjoy a similar experience.

Very merry Christmas to you.
Well we got to see the Dansette this morning and my husband was rendered speechless. He was very emotional.
What a magnificent machine lovingly restored. Cannot thank you enough.
His best present ever.
Enjoy your day.
Just a quick note to say thanks for the restoration on my Dansette Hi Fi. I have had it back for a week now, and it looks and sounds amazing. This Dansette had initially belonged to my parents (it was purchased in 1962) but prior to your restoration had been stored in a loft for approx. 30 years. It looked tired, and there was a bit of physical damage. I was also not sure whether it would actually work. When I initially contacted you, your enthusiasm, and knowledge convinced me that using Tutti Audio, was definitely the way to go. Your quotes, reports, photographs and communication throughout the restoration are absolutely first class. Following your restoration the Dansette looks like “new”, but thanks to your advice does not look “over restored”. You have kept the providence of this 60 year old Dansette intact. The sound is characterful, crisp and clear, and is exactly as I recall it from the late 60s early 70s.The sound of the record handling , the Illuminated Dansette logo, the light (and heat) from the valves also contribute to the enjoyment of the Dansette. I have rediscovered my 70s and 80s vinyl,and the enjoyment of these old lps is further enhanced by being able to link to modern hifi through your excellent Bridgit Box.
Again thanks for a superb restoration

I just wanted to confirm safe receipt of the beautiful Dansette.
I'm almost overcome with tears how wonderful it is.
I can't thank you enough. You've done an amazing job. It was so wonderfully packaged.
It has sat beautifully on the teak legs on my oak floor and I'm currently listening to an old folk compilation.
Here's to many years of Dansette action!
With many best wishes and regards
Just to let you know I have received my Dansette and am absolutely over the moon with it. I waited until my partner got home from work to unwrap it although I could hardly sleep with excitement. It arrived fairly early this morning so I was able to get a little sleep after my nightshift.
I must compliment you on the outstanding service you have provided throughout; from sourcing the player to the refurbishment , packaging, and excellent communications. I spent a good few minutes just touching the player as I find its a very tactile piece of kit.
We had already decided on the album of choice, and even though it wasn't staying true to the era, we used to play it on the Dansette in 1973 when it came out. Its my favourite album of all time and hearing it played as it was all those years ago gave me a huge rush of nostalgia, and a longing for the seemingly uncomplicated life I lived back then. Oh the album is Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon in case you were wondering. It just sounds sublime, and watching the mechanics in action as I did all those years ago still fascinates me. To say I am delighted really is an understatement.
All that remains for me to do is congratulate you on your craftsmanship, and obvious dedication to keep such an important piece of musical history alive. Please feel free to use any parts of our communications if you would like to use any as a testimonial.
Thank you so much Bob, you have made a Durham lass very happy.
Kindest regards and best wishes for the future
A lovely thank you card arrived today (Friday 7th August 2020) from Alan who is clearly pleased with his Dansette restoration and newly acquired Bridgit Box…
Thanks for all your hard work in restoring my Dansette HiFi it really looks amazing, sounds amazing – just out of this world. As for the Bridgit Box that is really good as well. It paired up with my mini Hifi system. The volume on this is really good. Thank you once again for a wonderful restoration.
All the best. Alan M
Another happy customer...

Will be in touch in the near future for a Bridgit box and a stylus kit , thanks again for a beautiful restoration job. Kindest regards Tony."
A lovely message recently arrived from Nicola in Southampton. Clearly delighted with her Turquoise Dansette Bermuda...
Dansette arrived this morning. We’ve just had a surprise opening. We love it. It looks amazing - what an iconic piece of design. Thank you. Something we will treasure and appreciate for a long time to come. We have some framed vinyl that will go up on the walls behind it so it will be a stunning piece when everything is up in place.
It’s been a sadly rare these days, outstanding, personal purchasing experience! The communication has been second to none. It’s heartwarming to come across someone who clearly takes pride in his work and does it with passion. That really comes across!
Many thanks again
Guenther, a client in The Netherlands has today taken delivery of his beautiful Dansette HiFi MKII. Originally made on the 21st August 1964 it was recently sourced to order and restored by yours truly. You could say Guenther is very happy with his vintage acquisition...
As scheduled I received your parcel in the afternoon and am really, really proud of this wonderful Dansette (please see photo): everything works as it should, sound is excellent, perfect!
Thanks for all your efforts, the search, the restauration and all the care around! I will recommend you further in any instance. It was a great pleasure to go that process with you and I wish you all the best for the upcoming restaurations and I do hope that after all this Corona problems I will have the chance to visit again Cornwall and will give you a ring to meet and thank you personally.
Stay safe and all the best,
Supplying Dansettes worldwide!
Australia - Hong Kong - Netherlands
The year is only a few weeks old and we have already sent a beautiful Dansette Conquest Auto safely halfway around the world to Honk Kong. It arrived today in fact - see customer's comments below. Next week a stunning Dansette HiFi will be winging its way to the Netherlands. Over the past 24 months we have also sent two Dansettes safely to Australia.
The Dansette arrived well and in great shape in Hong Kong today. It's beautiful, you have done such a great job! Thank you dearly for your time and work. It's been a very good experience to purchase a vintage record player from you so far. Javier and I are now learning to use it, we might have questions for you in the future. :)) Thanks again, I'll make sure to put a comment on your Facebook page (or wherever you would like me to!) in the near future!
Keep doing what you do!
Mathilde & Javier
“After purchasing a Dansette Conquest Auto from Bob Amos at Tutti Audio (who sourced and restored it) my wife and I would like to express our gratitude to Bob who provided us not only with a high quality item but high quality service throughout. We were presented with updates and photos during the restoration, answers to our numerous questions and a service that proved that the restoration was more of a labour of love for Bob rather than a routine task.
It is rare to find in this throw away, profit making society, a person who not only gives excellent results by giving vintage audio equipment new looks and life, but also gives the customer not only a written guarantee of his work but magically leaves a part of his soul within his work.
Thank you, Bob."
