You’ve found us…
and a great selection of cool audio stuff for your home. We’re Totally Wired in more senses than one. An independent specialist business based in Dunedin, with clients throughout New Zealand and the world. Explore our site and find out how we can make technology easy. Tell us what you want and together we’ll select the ideal component or system for you. We’ll organize safe delivery and everything that is required to get you up and running. It will look and sound just superb!
Totally Wired is a whole lot more than just a retail space. Our web presence has continually grown and we’re now at the point where roughly 80% of our business is on-line with clients not just in New Zealand but all around the world. Even within Dunedin, we've found that people will consult our website first. So for 2017 we've moved from the Terrace Houses to a home base while we redevelop our website to improve the quality of information and navigation for you.
In the last three years we’ve also established two fantastic agencies where we are able to bring you products directly from the designers - the NuPrime range of electronics and the Australian KLEI cables from Keith Eichmann. In both cases we’ve got a long history with the brands and having done well with them, the chance to take a step out of the conventional distribution structure allows us to deliver you better value and carry a greater range in stock.
We’re also planning to concentrate more on the best components from our other partners - the Well Tempered turntables, Sonus faber speakers, Stax electrostatic headphones and Pure Audio amplifiers being obvious examples.
And yes, we’re most certainly still your best source for both Tivoli radios and Geneva wifi systems.
As if this isn't enough challenge, Carolijn* has also returned to the University of Otago to add a Dip grad to her BA and is then looking to progress to Honours - she's really enjoying this and is still finding time to help out and keep our Facebook page and on-line store up to date. *For those that are wondering, Carolyn was Sharon's original name and she's taken this further by going back to the original Dutch spelling of her heritage - hence Carolijn.
In the meantime we’re still here to help. For our Otago clients I’m now unencumbered by conventional retail hours so are able to visit you in your own home and demonstrate our best products in this context. For all of you outside of Dunedin I’ll have more time allowing faster and more considered responses.
While our shop became iconic in the same way as Roi Colbert's adjoining Records, Records was, the reality is that it also mirrored the stereotype of Dunedin flats. But the biggest single factor in our decision to move is the earthquake risk. Anyone in Christchurch will know exactly where we are coming from, many in Wellington will also be thinking along the same lines. How can we build a more resilient and adaptable business to manage these risks? With the changes in retail driven by the internet and the desire to progress, we’ve got plenty of good reasons to move.

NuPrime in New Zealand.
All about the awesome NuPrime range of DACs and Digital amplifiers.
We're thrilled to be able to bring you the NuPrime products. As longtime NuForce enthusiasts it was only natural for us to contact Jason Lim and ask if we could represent his new enterprise in New Zealand - previously we'd had to operate via a distributor company which was both inefficient and costly. Now the NuPrime range comes to us directly and we've been tasked to do the best possible job for you in New Zealand.
In 2017 NuPrime now have a comprehensive range of models that cover both music, surround sound and multichannel. And there is more to come. You'll see that NuPrime, while being primarily active in Digital do have some excellent new analogue components. Every model from entry level upwards offers you a happy mix of both exceptional value and performance. Browse through our pages to learn more.
The new KLEI cable range from Keith Eichmann
"From the first few notes, we just looked at each other, with a look of surprise on our faces. Detail, speed, ambience and a total sense of space, around each individual instrument and voice. Notes that used to just end abruptly, now have an ambient trail of decay, as if you can sense the size of the room the instrument was recorded in. There's detail we just couldn't hear previously. I could go on with superlatives, but to say the KLEI cables are quite remarkable, is nothing short of fact."
