I had an excellent experience purchasing my new i-pod ready radio at audio connections. The price was reasonable, the employees were friendly and, unlike big box stores, extremely knowledgable and experienced. I was told by one of the big box stores in the area that in order to replace the radio in my 2001 maxima I would have to purchase new speakers also. Not only did audio connections install my new radio without buying all new speakers, but my old speakers sound better now. I have purchased radios from the big box stores before and will not hesitate to go straight to audio connections next time because of my experience.
Pros: great employees, larger selection than big box stores
Cons: store needs updating, falling apart
