This has become my default destination for my hi-fi needs since I moved to the area in August 2016. I have been to some of the other local shops, and while they may carry particular brands I am looking for, in terms of the overall vibe and experience Command Performance AV has exactly what a hi-fi shop should have. It’s a bit of a hole in the wall, not the swankiest setting – but it’s a good casual vibe where you can enjoy your favorite music on systems at a variety of price points. The staff are very knowledgeable and passionate about music – they are not just gearheads who want to dazzle you with the latest ultra-expensive cable. Indeed, Command Performance brings an appealing blend of appreciation and knowledge of hi-fi equipment with an eye towards the ultimate goal: enjoyment of music. Thus far I have purchased an integrated amp, two headphone amps, a DAC, and some other assorted items. I intend to continue to make purchases with this store. Having shopped at numerous hi-fi establishments over the years in several different cities, I can safely say that Command Performance is a top-tier shop and I recommend them to hi-fi novices and fully initiated audiophiles alike.
