Hi All,

A friend of mine in the Kitchener area is looking for good quality Used dealer
in the Kitchener area.
Is looking for a Turntable, Receiver, Speakers and probably a CD player.
Budget probably below $2000 ish.

Any ideas?
Thanks?


Ott.

It is ironic that you are posing a question about the best place to buy used, quality, vintage gear on the site where the best quality vintage gear is being sold every day.... for me, CAM has been my go-to source for all things used audio. Not knocking bricks and mortar stores, but the depth and breadth of audio equipment here cannot be beat in a local store.

Just sayin' :)

CAM is a great place to list gear for sale. It is no longer a great place to buy or sell.

The friend needs to go somewhere to listen to stuff and get advice.
I'm too far away to help.

Hi,

Natural Sound used to have some good stuff but not so much in the last few years. Soundstage has higher quality used stuff but at higher costs. Sound Fixation in Stratford has some decent stuff. Audio Two in Windsor closed. Audio Oasis in Toronto closed. A trend here? Audio Eden in Markham (?) has a good used list. Audio d'Occasion in Montreal is good for used. There is a store in Kingston, I forget the name, that trades in used and new. Planet of Sound lists used gear for their clients who may be looking to upgrade. CAM is ideal - it's all there.

Cheers,
David Neice

Soundstage has a decent selection of used gear. Some of it (But not all) is listed on their website. http://www.soundstagefineaudio.com

Worth checking out. I bought my first good system there 25 years ago----all used stuff and it is all still working and sounding great.

Mystic Audio in Cambridge (appointment only) has a nice pair of Kudos speakers for sale at a deep discount (demo) that might be within your friend's budget.
