Intamusic Imports was established in Tauranga, New Zealand in 2008, by Jim Walker, former owner of Jim‘s Music Room, and with the assistance of Jacqui, Jim's partner.
Jim’s mission through Intamusic Imports is to deliver a fast and affordable service supplying reissues of analogue vinyl LP recordings to audiophile enthusiasts throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Jim has been a part of the hi fi and record business for more than thirty years. As the owner of Jim's Music Room Ltd, a well-known and highly respected specialist music and hi fi shop in Tauranga, Jim gained a reputation for his extensive knowledge, and passion for audiophile hi fi recordings and equipment.
Under his guidance Jim's Music Room remained a steadfastly independent retailer, maintaining a product range that was carefully selected for its musical values unlike the bland commercial fare offered by the larger chains that usually slavishly followed the dictates of large multi-national record companies.
Jim’s passion for this industry is lifelong and this is demonstrated by the fact that when he sold Jim's Music Room in December 2004, he decided to retain a small financial interest in the store and to continue working for the new owners on a part-time basis.
Jim has an extensive knowledge of audiophile musical recordings in general, and 180 gram and 200 gram audiophile vinyl in particular, and he believes they produce a superior sound to that of the digital format.
He is a big fan of high end hi fi products, and analogue turntables, cartridges, tone arms, and valve or tube amplifiers hold a special fascination for him.
This site contains audiophile vinyl from the world’s best recording artists and manufacturers.
Jim has unleashed his passion on this site, stocking products he loves and believes in and with the help of his partner Jacqui will bring to you the customers the quality of vinyl that was and will always be. He is keen to share his knowledge and passion with other enthusiast.
Welcome to the home of pure unadulterated audiophilia!
