Audio Gear Components

Our demo products represent the strengths in each of the brands we carry and let you experience the distinct product and price levels. Of course as a reference dealer we can access the complete line of products for any brand we carry. Once you find the level of audio equipment you desire, you can explore the subtle nuances within the models if you need.

Amplification

Pre-Amp, Power, Integrated (both pre-amp and power), Analog (Tube) or Digital

OUTPUTS

Headphones

From Sonus Faber to McIntosh, Focal, and Pryma, we promise you’ll listen to headphones that are NOT made cheaply in the third world. You’ll also find that the manufacturing dollars went into the quality of the headphones, not into some pop artist’s bank account.

Speakers

From Outdoor to Reference, from Mid-century to contemporary, we have an array of drivers to fit your needs.

MUSIC SOURCES

Turntables, Record Players, and Phonographs

Vinyl records. There’s a velvety warmth and accuracy that just can’t be surpassed, especially when paired with a vacuum tube amplifier.

From McIntosh to VPI Industries, you can spend up to $50,000 on a turntable. But we think even the discerning stereophile will find the tonal reproduction they crave at a substantially lower price point. That’s why our demo rooms feature many turntables ranging from $600 to $5,000 and with excellent cartridges, like Ortofon.

Network Players, Media Bridges, and Streamers

Looking for convenience? You probably have a digital music library. Media bridges allow you to connect all your digital media to your sound system, whether you have hours of lossless compressed audio like FLAC or ALAC on a NAS or some other device.  There are also models that support the music streaming services such as Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.

Disk Transports / Players
(CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, 4K)

Clearly one can purchase a 4k player that plays CDs as well. But a purpose built CD transport will offer more authentic reproduction of your music.

We offer a variety of transports in different sizes and budgets, with some great on board features such as a DAC, balanced and unbalanced outputs and even a headphone amp.

HI-FIDELITY AUDIO ACCESSORIES

Cabling

From McIntosh to Tributaries’ “Clarus cables”, we carry a wide variety of audio cabling:  balanced, unbalanced, and speaker cable that matches up with the quality of the equipment we sell.
