Hear from our customers:

  • Who knew there was a store in Los Angeles where you can actually listen to a variety of turntables. I brought my older Technics turntable and hooked it up at the store to compare. The guys at the store could not have been more helpful and friendly. I am now in possession of a fantastic new turntable.  This place is a gem.

  • Yea this place rocks from the service to the equipment.  The guys were super helpful in helping get this 48 year old rocker mom into loving my first turntable. I bought a Rega turntable and I finally got it set up with my already owned Sonos speaker.  Wow I am enjoying the sound from the vinyl. What a huge difference in sound. I will no longer buy Cd's or download music again. I am having a concert in my home right now.  The Cult, The Who, Dropkick Murphy's, and more bands will be playing at our house. So glad I made this investment!  Can't wait to buy more records!

  • This is the best place for hi-fi in Pasadena! I always stop by to pick up some inner record sleeves and have always had great customer service from them. Really patient and willing to talk about the equipment they have in stock. Looking forward to buying a cartridge and having them install it.

  • This place is fantastic! I'm just getting back into listening to records and music like it used to be and the folks here, particularly Brian are great. They are super knowledgable and helpful. I bought my amp from them and when I set it up I discovered my old turntable wasn't working. Brought that over and Brian fixed it right before my eyes. Love these guys - and they sell vinyl too!

  • Absolutely amazing store!  They carry many of my favorite brands; DCS, Sonus Faber, VTL, Grado, Audioquest, Cardas and Transparent cables, along with many other high end manufacturers.  The vibe in here is comfortable and adds to a very pleasant purchasing experience. I was also happily surprised they sell some Vinyl here!  This has become my top recommendation for all my Audiophile friends.

  • Superior customer service. Was having an issue with my Pro-Ject turntable. Brian diagnosed it as a loose wire. After rechecking all wire connections he adjusted the cartridge and hooked up to his audio equipment to test. Perfect. I mentioned I was interested in upgrading my speakers. Brian asked my budget then came in well below it with the speakers he demo'd for me. No trying to up-sell me, he was all about getting me the best sound with the equipment I owned and with in my budget. I'll definitely be back.
