We have done our very best... 
Be assured that our equipment has been subjected to hundreds of hours of intensive labor and meticulous detailing involving one or more of the following: repairing, reconditioning, restoration, cleaning, testing and/or whatever else may be needed in order to be able to say everything is in good to very good condition.  Since there are no warranties or returns on sold items, all we promise is that it's working when you buy and it's tested in front of you before purchase.

About shipping...  

We get inquiries asking about shipping.  Unless it's a *turntable, we can probably accommodate you.  Heavy vintage electronics require great care in packaging for obvious reasons.  We are experienced in professional prep for shipping.  We prefer FedEx because they are fastest and their track record for safe handling is well known.
*Years of experience have proven that no matter how carefully they are packed, turntables are just too delicate and are most prone to shipping damage.

Consider vintage analog...
During the Late 60's through the very early 80's there was a huge audio market driven by the demand for quality high fidelity stereo gear. But, by the mid to late 80s', the audio industry was moving towards lower quality standards along with digital convenience, so the high priced market was drying up, and manufacturers were lowering costs and building systems that were offering high power but much lower in price. The rack systems were starting to pop up in the early 80's and all of the major mass market manufacturers found new profits in their lower quality high power systems, offering cheap turntables, cassette decks, cd players and digital receivers with graphic equalizers. Customers were under the impression they got a good value for the price, compared earlier to the much higher priced high end systems. The one major drawback was when digital became the standard, quality suffered and could not compare to the quality standards of the high end components of the 1960s and 1970s.  Like that old saying "they don't make 'em like they used to"...

About us...
Cherry Vintage Audio © started out as a serious hobby dating back to the late 60's...back then, a few vintage pieces eventually became a few hundred by 2014 which led to a storefront on Cherry Avenue in Long Beach CA.  Eventually, within the first year and beyond, word of mouth had spread.  Besides folks in the vast Southern California area, we also had customers coming from hundreds of miles away (Las Vegas, Arizona, Oregon and Nevada).  And also, thanks to Yelp, our reviews were very positive. The good folks that had a pleasant experience at Cherry Vintage Audio and actually took the time to write a review helps to make it all worthwhile.
It wasn't easy to leave Long Beach but the decision to move to Greenville in May 2017 made sense since we originally lived there for almost 20 years.  The lure of the Carolinas and its lifestyle is hard to resist...
Having worked in the past at Pacific Stereo (Bay Area, 70's), The House of Music (70's, San Francisco), University Stereo (mid-70's, Southern California) and up through today, we have been involved in the world of high fidelity for over 50 years. We don't claim to be anything other than those who like the warmth of sound when it comes to analog stereo equipment (or the occasional digital/analog piece that comes along).  We won't mislead you, lie to you or deal in unethical transactions.
