this has to be a scam? this unit is $700+ everywhere else?
I just had a good experience with them. I ordered a turntable accessory from them on March 21. Received it on March 25. I placed the order through their website.
I live in Green Bay and have been doing business at HiFi Heaven for the past 25 plus years. In fact, I helped put the owner's kids through college :-)
A guy by the name of Jim McNally is the owner and has been ever since I started doing business there. I'm told Jim bought out Vince? years ago back when the store was still on Washington St in downtown Green Bay. Why not give them a call before calling them a scam?
I think I know the guy who owns the store. I won't say his last name 'cause I'm not sure if it's the same guy. His first name is Vince - well, if he's even still alive (he would be about 75+ now). I worked for Vince in the early and mid '70s, doing commercial sound installations, and he was thinking about opening a hifi shop and calling it Hifi Heaven. Sue Craft (4everyoung) might have some additional info.
P.S.: I am forever indebted to Augie, who was my mentor in installations. He taught me everything I know about running wire, installing ceiling speakers, wall-mounted controls, and generally getting it done right. My first job with him was the under-construction Green Bay Southwest high school. We ran seven miles of wire in there - yes, 35 1000' spools.
It's a display model, which might account (in part) for the low price.
I dealt with them over the internet, trading in a Headroom headphone amp for a Burson. They gave me a good price on the Burson and a fair trade=in value on the Headroom amp. No problems at all, and I'd buy from them again.
I have bought from and talked with them on the phone. Very nice to deal with. Call them and speak with a salesman. It will change your mind.
It's a real place, meaning it's a brick and mortar shop, but a Google search shows several complaints about the website advertising gear that they don't actually have.
