Services — Your Audio Concierge
System Delivery, Set Up, and Installation
Not all audio components are cash and carry friendly. For example, the Verity Audio Lohengrin IIS loudspeakers weigh in at 750 pounds in their shipping crates. Even less extreme cases, such as a customer favorite, the Neat Acoustics Momentum SX5i loudspeakers, are not an easy set of boxes to handle. Add to this the fact that many folks are not well-versed when it comes to the critical area of turntable set up and phono cartridge installation. Don’t worry, we’ve got all the based covered!
