                   We have done our very best to assure that our equipment has been subjected to many, many hours of labor-intensive and meticulous detailing involving one or more of the following: 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 (unless otherwise noted.)  

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.

This list of available gear is updated daily. If you see it listed here, it's still available.Text/call/email for information and/or appointments. 


Why 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...
Having worked in the past at Pacific StereoThe House of Music (San Francisco)University Stereo (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.
