Anybody dealt with HigherFi.com?


I just thought I'd see if anyone had dealt with these folks. An Audiogon member by the handle of Lunac has a pair
of speakers listed and gives HigherFi.com as the contact info in the add. Their site looks reasonably legit but the typical marketing hype (new! below dealer cost!) always makes me a little cautious :). Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Now if I can just decide what speakers I really want... Guess I'll post a request for opinions on that in a separate thread :).

Checked things out there too - something at their site reminds me of a retailer that goes by the name of Moon Audio who I believe used the audiogon moniker of "lunac" so I am not sure if these guys (higherfi) are one and the same - maybe someone here can shed some light...
I think they actually use the name Moon Audio on the site (at least I am pretty sure I saw it).
They are a wholesaler-distributor in the Minneapolis, St. Paul area. He also does business on Ebay. Kind of confusing with so many usernames. Hope this helps a little.
They used to be Moon Audio go by Higherfi at this time.
They advertise a bunch on rec.audio.marketplace. I've never done business with them, but if these are all one and the same person / business, they've been around quite a while.
Chris Moon is a broker. I bought a pair of Rowland 9Ti monoblocks through him for about half price. He was very honest and excellent to deal with. He will also haggle on the used stuff. I have contacted him from time to time on various items and would qladly buy through him again. I would give him an A+ as a dealer. No, he's not my brother-in-law.

I hope he's legit -- I just ordered a pair of Linn Katans from him by credit card. I'm expecting them next week. I'll post the results, good or bad.
He sounds like a pretty good guy to do business with- thanks for all the info! I look forward to hearing your results Mateored :).
I just got the Katans via UPS from Chris Moon (can't wait to get them hooked up!). The transaction was smooth, honest and quick -- subject to the speakers working properly. Based on what I've seen so far, I'd recommend doing business with Chris.
The last item on that site in the misc. section is the best. If I could afford it I would buy it now for my wife!
A true Levinsonn SPECIAL,,,,,,,.........
The owner of Higherfi is Chris Moon, previously of moon audio.  I bought a MagLev table from him that was supposedly able to buffer vibrations into turntables and other audio equipment weighing under 80Lbs.  I paid $540.00 for item to be delivered, and wow ! was I shocked at how shoddy this thing was!  The pistons would get stuck at an angle preventing them from "levitating".  After contacting Mr. Moon, he explained  that his ebay add clearly stated "no Returns or Refunds".  My bad I missed that.  He then  generously offered me an RMA number with 20% restocking fee if I paid shipping.  I shipped it back and he refused signature.  Item was returned to me again.  Be real careful buying  junk from this shady Chris Moon character.  I learned my lesson. Hope  this helps somebody else.
