Shipping depends on the item.  Any request for a shipping quote must be arranged by calling first at (864) 238-1102. Prices and inventory are subject to change ~ 

We have done our very best... 
Be assured that, since our beginning in 2014, all of our vintage gear have collectively and individually 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 to pristine condition and, in some cases...mint.  We do not say "mint" unless it's really "mint".
Generally speaking, all repair/restoration work is primarily done in-house with some exceptions based on time/parts availability.  
As a general rule, we do not do consignment except for special circumstance items, call for more info.   
Also, we generally do not take in outside repair work except on a limited basis depending on the item, parts availability and time constraints.
Since there are no warranties, refunds or returns on sold items, all we can promise is that the equipment is fully functional before any decisions are made to purchase.  
Payments are either by cash or PayPal only.

Consider vintage analog and analog/digital hybrids...
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 often 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, more often than not, they simply couldn't compare to the quality standards of the high end components of the '60s, '70s and into the early 80s.   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.  Our background includes over 50 years of audio experience and involvement in the areas of custom showroom design and layout, electronics repair, advertising, marketing and audio systems consulting.
Back in the late 60's, a few vintage pieces, over the following years, eventually became a few hundred.  So, by 2014, this 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).  The decision was made to move from LA to Greenville SC in May of 2017.  It wasn't easy to leave the Long Beach area but the decision to move the shop to Greenville SC 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...

And also, in the beginning, 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.  You can find us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and, of course, we always encourage folks to come and visit our shop.

Past hands-on, working experience included the late, great Pacific Stereo (Bay Area, late 60's), University Stereo (mid-70's, Southern California) , House of Music (San Francisco, '70's) and on up through today.  We have been involved in the world of high fidelity for over 50 years.  Yes, we are old but we don't claim to be anything other than those who like the exceptional build quality and warmth of sound when it comes to analog stereo equipment.  And, since the 90's are now considered "vintage" (!) we also carry some of the finer digital or digital/analog hybrid pieces as well.  However, we only do stereo...no surround sound.
We will never mislead you, lie to you or deal in unethical transactions.
