Dealers That Sell Large Volumes of Used Gear Online


I have purchased from a couple such dealers, and my favorite so far is The Music Room in Colorado.  They have been entirely professional, and most importantly, their gear always arrives well packed and in better shape than even their description would lead one to expect.  Their prices are reasonable, they are not gouging. I'm not affiliated, just a happy 2x customer.

And the question is... who have you had good experience with?  And who not so much...?
I agree , I do not know this but I have seen things that make me think they are involved with underwood wally which is a good thing .
I have dealt with TMR. I found them to be very professiona and friendly to deal with.
I've had straightforward and fair deals with both Perrotta Consulting and Weinhart Design, although not as good prices as TMR (still, it was my choice to do the deal). Luke warm to cold experience with Scott Walker Audio, who ultimately didn't have time enough to fix a problem and was too busy to respond with reasonable promptness. 
Underwood Wally is a straight shooter...  you just need to know what you want. 
TMR has very good customer service, knowledgable and respectful. And very reasonable prices for a dealer.
Underwood is good, many nice items, but I don’t like the no return policy. Even on a close-out, there should be a return on some items.
I asked TMR if a speaker was finished in real wood or vinyl, they told me to write down the serial numbers and call the manufacturer...I was done with them...
Underwood — Several purchases, always happy about the price and product (multiple PS Audio PowerPlants).

HigherFI — One very happy purchase (Avalon Eidolon).

USA Tube Audio — Good deals on Ayon gear (Triton III, CD07)
High End Electronics- Alfred Kanz is also a pleasure to deal with I've bought several items from him.
I second jond Alfred Kanz is great to deal with 
Jl35, seems like a reasonable answer on used gear they perhaps are not even a dealer for. 
maybe so, but for the money asked, I thought they would know...it was a speaker they were selling...
Spearit Sound -

Best for :

Krell
NAD
Focal
Conrad Johnson

USA Tube Audio...I didn't buy anything from them, but I called them out in a constructive manner via email, because they have a store one hour from where I live in Scottsdale, and they advertise their great showroom. What they don't advertise is that when they are out on an installation, NOBODY is minding the store!

As I say, I sent them an email telling them that I had wasted an hour driving there only to find a small sign on the door saying that they were out on an installation. I suggested that they should always have a person in the store during store hours. He said I should have called them. I strongly disagree. If you are that type of store, and I'm aware that they exist, you should state it on your website...call for appointment. 

To make matters worse, he responded to my polite email and said that he had reported it to audiogon! Really bad attitude from this guy...

Has anybody sold their used gear to any of these dealers?
I just did 2 transactions with Underwoodwally. Nice guy to talk to, great prices, I don't like the No return policy but I knew what I wanted so it was a non-issue
@roxy54

Had the same experience with their store being vacant / unattended.  It must be a very effective way of excluding potential customers from the throngs of tire kickers they might risk getting if they were open.
"RDLGUY" is the pseudonym used by Hawthorne Stereo in Seattle.  I tried hard to buy an item from them - communication was frustratingly slow and incomplete.

By the time I'd managed to get answers to my (rather basic) questions they sold the item to someone else.

I've had a couple of good experiences with Underwood Hifi as well. Wally was great to deal with.
I did a trade-in deal with TMR a few years ago. They gave me a very fair trade price for a Bryston B-100sst towards a Primaluna Dialogue Premium.  The tube cage of the PL came in with a cracked glass and they replaced the whole cage within a week. Very satisfied customer. 
Audio Solution in Indianapolis has been great to work with for both new and used gear .

Audio solutions Indy is a great place. Their prices are a little high, but the staff is highly knowledgeable and they have more inventory than the other 8 audio stores within 150 miles of me combined.  Like 20-30 times the inventory New/used I have seen anywhere.  I stop in once a month or so and it takes hours just to look at what they have. 
Spirit is a nice little shop in Northampton, Ma. Bought from them a long time ago. Recent purchases from Audio Classics in Vestal, NY were all completely first class in every respect. Would buy from them again.
Echo Audio in Portland Oregon.  www.echohifi.com these guys sell both new and used gear.  They've been around since the mid to late 90's.
Another one I recommend, great prices on Wireworld cables:

2nd,


Spearit Sound for Conrad Johnson gear- ask for Jack Tozzi.

Great guys at Spearit.....I have purchased several pieces from them and am lucky that my job puts me in Northhampton once in a while. I pop in every time im out there....  they sell at lot of cj and nad on line, I would recommend them to anyone.

TMR prices are high for most of what they sell. Ever see the pics they have of gear? I guess they're using some kind of a camera that has very little detail and everything looks like it has a gray haze to it.

Echo in Portland OR. is w/o a doubt one of the best if not the best. The pics of gear are very good and the prices make TMR appear to be gouging the potential customer. Echo fix/replace anything that isn't working correctly 100%. And they give a warranty on there gear.

Hanson Audio - I think they're in the Northeast. (I'm too lazy to backtrack this morning.) 

Bought a Primare phono preamp from them for a little below their asking price a while back.  They countered, accepted, shipped quickly, followed up, all the things retailers ought to be doing. Very nice people. 

Reno Hifi. Can't say enough about Mark. Sets the bar very high. Answers emails quickly, picks up the phone himself.  Three purchases in about two years.  He's my go-to for Pass Labs, period. 

AudioClassics NY.  TONS o' McIntosh gear and other manufacturers. Pair of Usher floorstanders a while back. Repacked with enough protection to withstand a MOAB.  Quick on the phone, quick with emails. 

Saturday Audio Chicago.  Got my pair of Thiel CS 3.6 from them about 2 weeks ago. They're great on the phone, not so much with email. Speakers were repacked with so much protection I almost needed a dumpster. Flawless and as described/photographed in the ad. Phone better - super helpful and knowledgeable all the way. 




Outstanding! selections- oblgny

Hanson A/V is in the Dayton, OH area.
Those guys have a real "knack" for obtaining excellent used/demo gear, especially, Thiel Loudspeakers.

Happy Listening!
I’ve had good experiences with both TMR Audio and Spearit Sound. TMR gave me a fair price for trade on an integrated amp (maybe less than I’d be able to sell it for here on Audiogon, but remember they’re running a business and have to factor their overhead into the equation) and an equally fair price for the integrated amp I exchanged it for. I bought a refurbished CD player from Spearit sound as the result of a very informative and friendly phone conversation with one of their staff. According to their website, proprietor Ralph Spear is retiring. I hope this doesn't mean they're closing up shop.
