I just moved to the Vancouver area 3 weeks ago from Los Angeles. I wanted to purchase a Shanling MC30, and found Echo Audio online. I called to see if they had one in stock, and yes they did. I went over on a Saturday and picked it up. WOW - what a great shop! I remember ""two channel"" shops like this from years gone by, prior to the ""home theater"" 5.1 channel craze. There are no stores like this anymore in LA. I picked up the MC30 and headed home. Upon arrival and setup, the unit was basically dead. I called Echo Audio, and Kurt was great about it. He offered to meet me at the shop on his day off, and exchange it for the store demo unit. Well, all is well with the demo, and I can't wait to get my new unit in a few weeks. The customer service at Echo Audio is amazing, and I can't believe I was lucky enough to find such a great store. I only wish I had more stereo needs so that I would have more reasons to shop there. I am sure I will find ""something"" I need. Hmmm, new cables, a new cartridge...
Pros: great selection, good prices,
