The showroom here is incredible, it’s an audio lovers candy store. Amazing gear for mid to high level enthusiasts. I have to say the real mover behind this place is the people who work here. Highly highly knowledgeable and very informative bunch. Josh worked with me to select the best option for my tastes and application. He was unbiased in his demoing and no pushy sales tactics, he let me here the options for my budget (which wasn’t that large / serious entry level) and he still gave me his 100% attention and guidance. This is the place to go if your thinking about getting into home audio. Thanks for the time, I came out of there knowing what different speakers sound like and my preferences. Look forward to buying more with you guys in the future.
I walked into Scott Walker Audio on a Saturday afternoon. We had never met before. We sat down and had a short conversation. It was immediately apparent that Scott knew what he was talking about regarding high-end audio. I was looking for a turntable. I explained my listening environment and equipment. Music has been a part of my life since my pre-teen years, I am not a nut and bolt audiophile. I make purchases based on what sounds good to me. Scott made a recommendation – not the most expensive, not the least expensive, but something that in his professional opinion, would work for me. Of course we needed a preamplifier section, again Scott recommended a piece of equipment that perfectly matched the equipment I had, and was buying. I visited Scott a couple weeks later looking for a new headphone amplifier. I had one that was highly recommended and reviewed, but it never totally met my expectations. Scott recommended a Macintosh headphone amplifier that is incredible. Over ear closed, over ear open, in-ear, all sounded sounded better whether it is Vinyl or lossless digital.Scott and i discussed high-end cabling. He lent me some cables to try that proved everything he said.
The bottom line in our business relationship is based on trust. Everything he told me was true. My home system has never sounded better. We need to support businesses like Scott’s where we can get knowledgeable help and know that the customer is the central focus of their business. –Thanks Scott.
I went to SWA to get a McIntosh tubes preamplifier – super nice guys and very accommodating. When I was there they said if I wanted an easy upgrade to try some some fuses and upgrades from synergistic research. Not a hard sell at all – just guys talking about what they have seen make a difference. I went back and read some reviews and asked them to order the items for me. I am generally cynical about system tweaks – but wow, in my system – they weren’t kidding – made a big difference in dynamics. Will definitely be going back and working with Scott and his crew – very friendly and accommodating – give lots of choices at different price points.
