Welcome to the world of Sonata, a specialist hi-fi ‘boutique’ situated in North West London.

Our aim is to help and guide you, making it easy for you to choose a music system, whatever your budget.

We work from a beautiful apartment in a converted church where the atmosphere is chilled, friendly, welcoming and always filled with music.

Music lies at the heart of Sonata and it’s the daily driving force and inspiration behind everything we do.

We’re here to listen to you and tailor a system to your individual lifestyle, needs, and your ‘ideal sound’.

Why don’t you give us a call or pop by for a coffee and a chat? Feel free to bring your own music, friends or family.

We’re always happy to give advice and the quality of our products speak for themselves. We don’t need to hard sell, it is not in our nature!

Rob Wilson

Rob has always been a huge music fan and spent his first university grant on records and a decent hi-fi. He moved to London to become a sound engineer, working in a number of famous studios, live venues and West End theatres.

Music is his lifeblood and that’s why, five years ago he decided to set up his own hi-fi business. His technical expertise helps cut through any audiophile ‘clap-trap’ and he truly believes in the products carefully chosen for Sonata.

Yvonne Hawkey

Yvonne’s background is music and for years she worked in the music industry as a singer/song-writer, performer and promoter.

Now, working as a freelance PR/Marketing Consultant, she helps several creative companies within the music and video industry. However, most of her time is dedicated to Sonata managing campaigns, events, social media and PR.

Nico the cat

After being rescued from an animal home Nico settled into the world of Sonata very quickly. She is homely, sociable and very chatty. Her passion lies with hi-fi packaging rather than the actual equipment, although sometimes she has a fascination for spinning turntables.
