So, who are we?

Allan Todd, Director


What HiFi gear do you own?
I have recently completed a major renovation of my apartment at Kangaroo Point. The now smart-apartment is automated using Control 4's ecosystem. Networking, home entertainment, air conditioning, blinds, curtains, lighting, multi-room audio, security, televisions and fans operate seamlessly integrate through Control 4's new OS3 operation system.

Specifically though, my main speakers are B&W Diamond Series 805 Bookshelves powered by a Yamaha Amplifier. For AVR I have an Aventage RXA1080 linked with my B&W mains, a B&W in wall centre speaker, B&W 10" sub and 4 B&W low profile in-ceiling speakers which combine for tantilising Dolby Atmos surround sound. Four zone B&W in-ceiling multi-room audio is powered by Triad amplification. While, Pakedge wifi supplied by Control 4's OS makes sure my system and residence are always connected. Two OLED TVs and one LCD ranging from 77" to 43" are also fully integrated into the smart apartment and sound systems, which allows me or my visiting family to access any media we want from any room with unparalleled simplicity and experience.

Professional background?
I’ve always been passionate about sound & vision. I've grown up living and breathing hi fi, home entertainment solutions and quality sound gear. Todds Hi Fi began with my father, Cameron Todd who began manufacturing speakers in the 60s. I have been privileged to witness the introduction of cassettes, surround sound, CD, DVD, widescreen TV, plasma, bluetooth, wireless, atmos, OLED and much more. I continue to push towards the future and feel the time is right for smart home automation to become the next significant technological phase in this industry.

Taste in music?
I love most styles of music, and I like it loud! Some of my favourite artists come from the classic music era that was the 70s and 80s – the originality and talent that emerged during that period is very hard to beat and remains incredibly popular to this day.

Something people wouldn't know about you?
I'm a 5th black belt in Karate and studied it for many years. I represented Australia at the World Championships as a fighter and on retiring worked to become an International Referee and former member of the World Referee Council. I have the team always call me Sensei. I’m joking... about the Sensei part.

David Airs, Lead Installer


What HiFi gear do you own?
I own mostly Yamaha. Great balance between quality and reliability.

Technical AV background?
I’ve always been a hard worker and love working with my hands, building, tinkering and putting things together. I started out in retail but moved into the installation side and have been doing this for over 20 years now, and with Todds since 2016. I’ve worked in home theatre, electronics and audio installation for all types of premises including residential homes and apartments, commercial properties and retail premises. I’m now a Control4 Certified Integrator and love the challenge of programming technical home solutions.

Taste in music?
I like all types of music but I’m definitely more a movie person. I love superhero and action movies, adventure movies, fantasy, sci fi and horror. My favourites are the classic superheroes, especially Batman. I also love a bit of Marvel and of course, Star Wars.

Something people wouldn't know about you?
I love collectibles. I own heaps of collectible figures, statues, lights, even Monopoly boards. I’d probably have at least 300 all displayed in multiple rooms around the house. My girlfriend actually likes it these days – her favourite is Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy.
