Audio Components

Listening to Music is Our First Love

Audio Advice was founded in 1978 as a two-channel high performance stereo store. We are one of the few stores of our size in the country who still focus on great gear for music. We have a great selection of premium audio components, including receivers, tube amplifiers, pre amps, DACs, digital audio servers, turntables, and more.

With several great listening rooms in both our Raleigh and Charlotte locations, our friendly staff is always willing to help you find the right combination of components for your system. If this requires comparing various products, not only are we equipped to do this – we love to do it!

The Best Tube Amplifiers

High performance stereo enthusiasts all over the world debate the question: do you prefer tube or solid-state components? The first electronics for music reproduction used vacuum tubes. Later, solid-state devices replaced tube components, but for many music lovers the tube sound remained the best. At Audio Advice you have the best of both worlds! Audio Research and McIntosh are two of the world’s most popular brands for both tube and solid-state components. Both consistently win awards for their products. In our listening rooms, you can have fun deciding for yourself which kind of sound you prefer.

Listening to music is one of the most relaxing things we know of. When your music system is right, it can ease away all of the stress of the day. We invite you let our experts help you create a system you will enjoy daily for many, many years to come!
