Best Sound for the Dollar

The Sound Well

If you love music — not Dolby Digital Plus 7.1-channel surround
sound, but high-fidelity audio — head to Berkeley’s oldest stereo
shop. Founded in 1974, just as quality equipment began infiltrating
consumer electronics shops, the Sound Well offers an alternative to
made-for-video home theater components that aren’t designed for
reproducing music. The Sound Well’s repair service can keep your own
vintage system healthy, and refurbished classics from respected brands
like NAD, KEF, Adcom, Denon, and Dual sell for a fraction of their
original retail prices. Gearheads can build out a high-quality system
without having to cash out what’s left of their retirement accounts,
and those needing TLC for a beloved component will find the Sound
Well’s technicians knowledgeable and highly skilled. Don’t let the
store’s limited public hours put you off; it’s a friendly shop that
stays alive by watching its bottom line.
