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.

A good and thorough review of the Focal Sopra 2 - with mentions of the 1 & 3. We have both the Sopra 1 & 2 on active display - the latter in the very special "chameleon" finish!

Some useful advice from Darko Audio. CPAV is a proud Bluesound dealer & the Node 2 has been an unqualified success. Please note that the Auralic Aries Mini has been discontinued in the US.
