As a company that specializes in repairing vintage audio in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas, we have seen our fair share of this type of equipment. Audiophiles all over love vintage audio equipment, but sometimes it’s tough to find that exact piece of equipment you need. Many people turn to the Internet to find what they want. But there are a few things you should think about before (and after) you have purchased the equipment? Here are a few things to keep in mind.
When you start searching for vintage audio equipment online, try to use the technical name or brand when you are typing in your search inquiry. This can help you narrow down the actual parts you need. And when you do find the pieces you want, be sure to look at the photographs carefully and be sure to read through the descriptions carefully to be sure you are getting exactly what you want and need.
You should also ask questions about the vintage audio equipment if you need to. You can tell a lot about the seller based on how quickly they get back to you about your questions or concerns. If you do not get any answers that are satisfactory, or if the answers do not fit what you need or want, find another vendor.
If you do end up ordering the piece of equipment, there are a few things you should check soon after you get it. For example, make sure you test them carefully and safely. Read up on any power supply requirements before you plug anything in so you do not inadvertently create a safety hazard! Give the equipment a thorough once-over too. If you see any problems with the equipment, contact the seller to inquire about the problems to see if there is any way you can return the product and possibly get a replacement or, at the very least, a refund on the money you spent on the vintage audio equipment. Most sellers will require that you return the product if you request a refund.
We hope you learned a few new things about vintage audio and how to be sure you are buying the best equipment for your buck! Of course, if you have any questions, you can ask the experts here at Mort’s TV & Video.
