Pioneers in High-Quality Audio Solutions

Longevity and Commitment

In the realm of high-fidelity audio, few companies stand out with the longevity and reputation of Audio Advisor, Inc. With its deep-rooted commitment to audio quality and customer service, the company has established itself as one of the leading names in audio equipment and accessories.

The Origins

Our journey began in the early 1980s, when the quest for pristine audio quality was gaining traction among enthusiasts and professionals alike. Founded by Wayne Schuurman, the company started as a humble venture but quickly grew, riding the wave of the audio renaissance.

Wayne attributes his success to "providing the best components at the best prices, and giving great service before, during, and after the sale. Our customer service is second to none," he says. "Not only in the audio industry, but in any business you can name."

Over time, Audio Advisor, Inc. carved out a niche for itself, becoming synonymous with top-tier audio solutions.

What makes us stand out is our extensive product range. We curate a vast selection of high-quality audio equipment, including:

  • Amplifiers and Receivers: From state-of-the-art integrated amplifiers to powerful A/V receivers, their range caters to both vintage aficionados and those seeking the latest in audio technology.

They are happy to answer your questions, and can also suggest low-cost gifts, matching gear, or accessories to improve any audio system.

Embracing the Digital Age

While we had our roots in the analog era, we have seamlessly transitioned into the digital age. Our website is a testament to this, offering a user-friendly interface where customers can easily browse products, read reviews, and make informed purchasing decisions. Moreover, with regular articles and videos, they educate their clientele about the ever-evolving world of audio technology.

The Green HQ

In 2019 we moved to our current headquarters in the Grand Rapids area, in a building reflecting a commitment to environmentally friendly business practices. The new 'green' HQ features 140 high-output solar panels on the roof. This 61kWh system provides more than 50% of the electricity used throughout the year.  

The packing practices have gone green as well. Audio Advisor packs products using heavy recycled paper sheets, a solution that is the most cost-effective, while making sure the products ship safely in their boxes. The company reuses most of the boxes received from vendors and specifies only recycled cardboard in the customer cartons it buys.

Their longstanding history, product diversity, customer-focused approach, and embrace of modern technology make them a premier choice for audio enthusiasts worldwide.
