Saturday Audio Exchange
If you can withstand an elderly man belittling you for not knowing the difference between a needle and a cartridge, Saturday Audio Exchange is the premier place to find good deals on yesteryear’s hi-fidelity gear. With vinyl sales spiking, the luxury speakers Don Johnson spent the eighties torturing with “Heartbeat” suddenly don’t seem so passé. The worth of the store’s exchange policy, to buy back their product and apply full credit toward a greater purchase, cannot be overestimated to audiophiles.
