Whetstone Audio carries a small, dedicated selection of audio manufactures. To not be redundant or confusing, you will find the best component at it’s price point. System building should be fun and painless!
Whetstone Audio has been in business now for 17 years! From day one, my goal was to own a shop where you could sit back, relax and listen to music on systems I have thoughtfully assembled. I’ve accumulated my product line through years of being in an industry that changes by the day. After many years, I’ve pretty much figured out the best sounding products and combinations in this spectrum.
While initially, many of the products I have sold come from England, I’ve expanded the product line to include basically whatever I think sounds good. One major factor in my product choices are their serviceability. If something should fail, it must be fixed in a timely manner. Luckily, this rarely happens.
I AM NOT AN AUDIOPHILE! I AM A MUSICIAN AND MUSIC LOVER!
If you want to obsess about cable lifts, isolation “tweaks” or that “polka with the wide sound stage”, I may not be the shop you were looking for. There are plenty of shops / shrinks that will cater to your neurosis / fetish. I prefer to listen to music, not psycho acoustics.
I’d rather be honest, earn your trust and build a relationship. It sometimes takes a few visits to become familiar with the gear and make an educated decision. Take your time! This should be a fun process. Bring several CD’s / records, your spouse, a six pack or bottle of wine and check it out. I promise I won’t force anything on you other than Sound Advice. Please keep in mind that having a Brick and Mortar shop cost$. So if you plan on using my services, please shop here and not on the web. In the long run, you’ll be much better off.

NAIM RE-CAP SERVICE
Do you have an older Naim amp that is sounding a bit thin? Fix it, don’t ditch it! You just need it re-capped! AV Options is the only Naim approved service center in the USA. Bring me your old Naim and I’ll return it to you in “like new” condition!
SELL ME YOUR RECORDS!
I Buy, Sell & Trade good records. I’d rather sell you a turntable to play them on, but if you are looking to sell your LP / 45 collection, bring it by. I’m looking for good quality Jazz, Rock, Soul, Funk, Country, Reggae, etc. Please don’t bring me records that are trashed or the typical junk you’ll find at a Goodwill. Sorry, I’m not going to want your Sound Of Music soundtrack but I will pay top dollar for good records that are in good condition.
