ABOUT TRUE AUDIOPHILE

logo.png

True Audiophile is based in Portland, Oregon with the goal of providing audiophiles, new and old, with the best sonic value in every class. We offer audio components that allow the music to be, well, musical. 

While this concept may seem obvious we're always amazed by the flood of people who are surprised or shocked how musical our room sounds at Audio Shows. Many, many times people and reviewers claim we have the best sound at a show - for a fraction of the cost of super systems. Attendees are so elated they make a point to stop and shake our hands on the way out.

When you see a product in our store you can be sure it was selected for its ability to reveal what is on the recording. The entire tapestry of music. Nothing less. It's always about the music and your personal connection to it.

Our founder has been involved in audio for over 30 years and worked in the recording studios of all the major record labels. So he knows what actual recordings sound like before its reproduced. This experience showed him that all the intense work that goes into making albums is what creates the magic of that recording. 

Many of our customers write to us amazed that they've listened to an album for years, yet after listening through audio equipment they purchased from True Audiophile it's like they were hearing the recording for the first time. They heard deeper into the recording than ever before and it was exciting.

This is the criteria for all the brands you see here. We first audition as audiophiles, second as retailers. If a product doesn't meet our sonic standards it doesn't matter how popular it is or how many sales we could make.

You will find stores that offer every audio product under the sun. That's great and sometimes the sound doesn't matter as much as the features. But it matters to True Audiophile. Anything you find here has to be 'musical' without accentuating any one frequency - or be fatiguing. 

This is what you'll find at True Audiophile, whether you are local to Portland, or elsewhere in the U.S.  We know we our products inside out and can discuss it on any level you choose. Our customer service is based on providing the best configuration for your money and offering you any and all help you need. We have hundreds of very happy customers nationwide. As well as Google highest 'trust' rating so you can feel safe buying from us.

As of Summer 2016, we will be moving to a new location within Portland. Our demo room will be down until we find a suitable space. If you are in Portland you can use our Audio Concierge Service where we bring the component to you so you can demo in your home. Just give us a call at 503- 803-7700, 9-6PM Pacific Time, Monday-Saturday.

Naturally, being in Oregon means your order is tax-free no matter where you live.
