About Us

Bella Fox

Mascot, Person 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.

Excellent new review of the Innous Statement in HiFi+, where it also won "Server of the Year" award.

We've had opportunities to listen to the Statement both at shows and here at CPAV and the improvement in resolution, soundstage and naturalness of sound vs the prior top of the line Zenith SE, not to speak of the standard Zenith, are remarkable.
