I’ve got a friend that wants to get her husband a turntable for Xmas. Can someone recommend a good retailer in the Burl / Oakville / Hamilton region?

Maybe try Fairview Electronics in Burlington. I assume your friend doesn’t want to spend thousands, in which case Fairview is a good place to start. And if she is interested in an entry level rig, PCV Records in Oakville sells turntables. Just make sure she knows if her husband has a phono preamp. If not, a turntable with a built in preamp may be the way to go.

Recently, a new hi fi store opened up just off the 403 / Guelph line in Burlington called House of Hi-Fi. They had a grand opening in September and carry a lot of very nice audio products and a very knowledgeable owner. http://www.houseofhifi.com

Very well worth the drive for a visit. Great selection of turntables, amps and speakers. :D

My suggestion would be http://corbysaudio.com/ Don has more experience with turntables / arm / cartridge combinations than anybody else I have ever met in this hobby . Don has the experience and products to bring satisfying results from entry level to what ever level your budget will allow .

+1 on corby, he just got Rega.

OP doesn't mention budget, but Alternative Audio in Dundas is a topnotch hifi dealer. Both they and Corby will be carrying high end gear.

I don't know wifihifi, but looks interesting. But i can recommend all of the other dealers except EHR. Don't waste your time there unless your budget is bargain basement. All their tables are static display only, and expertise is poor.

Thanks all. I’m not sure of budget either but would say that they want to be taken care of. Good service / set up is likely going to be what they’re looking for.
