9 Reasons to Buy from
Audio Advice this Holiday Season

With the rise of Amazon and more new audio brands than ever before, we know that you have a lot of options when it comes to where you can purchase your audio and home theater gear.

Before you make your final decision, let us make a case for why we believe you should shop at Audio Advice.

Our History

This year marks 40 years in business as Audio Advice was founded in Raleigh, NC in 1978. You can read all about our story and our founder here. When you purchase equipment, you want to be able to lean on your dealer in the case that something should go wrong or you have questions.

In the past few decades, most dealers in the US have simply gone out of business, leaving only a small handful of reputable companies with brick and mortar locations in addition to their websites. When you shop with us you can rest assured that we intend to be around for another 40 years and will always have your back.


Our Reputation

Our founder, Leon Shaw, is one of the most respected people in the audio industry. Everyone from other dealers, to brands, to the audio press value Audio Advice’s opinion. The key to our success is our unwavering dedication to our customers. We hire the best people, many of whom have been with us since the beginning.

We have four decades of designing and installing high-end audio systems and home theaters in our customers' homes. We’ve won countless awards, are one of the largest dealers and integrators on the east coast, and even one Specialty Dealer of the Year.

Our reputation is the reason high-performance brands trust us to also sell their products online. They know that we will ask the right questions, take care of our customers, and help them choose the right products for their needs.

Curated Products

We hand-pick all of the brands and products that we carry to ensure that the integrity of the company's, quality of the products, features, performance, design, and value are all considered.

We thoroughly test products before we ever decide to carry them and we pass on many more products and brands than we accept into our assortment. The products we carry are all good -- the question is whether they’re good for YOU and we can help you figure that out.

We also only carry products that enforce standard pricing, so you can shop with confidence. You will never be able to find our products for cheaper at any other authorized dealers. We have the same prices as Amazon, Best Buy, etc.
