Ripcaster is based in a fantastically old and quirky building called ‘The Forge’. It is, as the name suggests, a converted Forge set in the rural haven of Checkendon, in the Chilterns between Reading and Oxford. We are fortunate to have plenty of parking available to our customers.

We offer full demonstration facilities and plenty of space to sit and listen to a range of bespoke HiFi systems.

Our customers often make a day of it and visit one of the local pubs or restaurants for a relaxed lunch - we are happy to advise.

We are a small friendly team and we would love to meet you.
