Wax at Moorgate


We have our own record store in the basement of our store. It opened in April 2019.

Head straight to the Wax website.


Wax is part of Moorgate Acoustics

Wax is part of Moorgate Acoustics, one of the premier hi-fi shops in the UK and is 38 years old this year.

We sell new and used vinyl and cheap, used CD’s. We also sell vinyl and vinyl care accessories.

Music has always underscored everything we do. It is the reason that customers visit us and the connection we share.

In our 38 years we’ve discovered hundreds of artists and shared them with our customers. 

Because of our love for music a record store was something we’d always wanted. Moving to Woodseats in 2016 afforded us additional space and we quickly saw that our own record store was very much a possibility.


Moorgate Acoustics is a family run business. It was founded by Keith Hobson and is now run by myself (Paul Hobson). I can always be found either upstairs at Moorgate or in the basement at Wax.

We buy local when we can and we support the local economy. We use local tradesmen and craftsmen whenever we need them and we employ local people. When our company makes money we invest it inwardly; in our products, our facilities and our people.

We are as green and sustainable as we can be and we constantly seek to improve this. All our bags are recycled paper. We re-use packaging when shipping products out. We also supply products which are designed to last AND have value even after many years. Few of our products will find their way into landfill.

It brings me great joy that we can show people the equipment they need to better enjoy music at home. And now we can sell them the music to enjoy listening to on that system.

We’re open Tues, Weds, Fri and Sat from 10.00 till 4.30
