About Us

Bella Fox

Mascot, Music Enthusiast

Our philosophy is to work one-on-one with each customer to match the best equipment to your needs, desires, and constraints. We strive to create long-term relationships, not one-time sales.

We invite you to come by our store for an audition. You will find a comfortable, low-pressure environment with 4 showrooms. We offer new, demo, and trade-in equipment for sale.

You will be served by our staff, who are as passionate as you are about both music and audio equipment. Our experienced trio of home audio professionals seek out the finest in source components, amplification, and speakers in each price range. Take your time, ask questions, listen at your leisure; we’re here to help.

We are particularly proud of our experience in source equipment. We have extensive knowledge of both analog audio and modern digital streaming. We also have the largest selection of hands-on turntables, phono stages, streamers and DACs in the Middle Atlantic.

We just got in our allotment of the long-awaited Pro-ject Classic turntables. These are in very short supply and we got three of them. If you have had your eye on one, come on in and grab one while you can.

Dreaming of an Ayre Acoustics piece? Effective 1 April prices on Ayre pieces will rise as much as 15% (e.g. AX-5 integrated amp). Pricing on the new QX-5 digital hub and the older "XE" models stays the same.

Now is the time to act & beat the price hike!

C'mon on by to demo the AX-5 twenty integrated amp w/ QX-5 twenty digital hub & P5-XE phono preamp. We also have the KX-twenty pre & VX-5 twenty amp available for demo. All featuring Focal's fabulous new Sopra line featured in this month's Stereophile!
