McIntosh

Audio Concepts is one of the longest standing McIntosh dealers in the state, we are the experts! McIntosh handcrafts legendary home audio products for home stereo and home theater systems. Our audio products have been made in the USA since 1949.

Paradigm

For over 30 years, Paradigm has set the standard for innovation and technology in loudspeaker manufacturing. Paradigm loudspeakers are designed, engineered, and crafted, in their headquarters just outside Toronto, Canada. Paradigm’s Persona™ Series uses the most advanced audio technologies, each speaker virtually disappears behind an unprecedented level of realism and transparency. The Premium Wireless Series combines Paradigm’s innovative loudspeaker and amplifier engineering with state-of-the-art DTS Play-Fi® wireless streaming technology.

Vandersteen Audio

Vandersteen Audio always has been and always will be a technology company. Vandersteen speakers for decades were built around Richard Vandersteen’s patented reflection-free aerodynamic midrange drivers, which remain paragons of low-distortion musicality. Minimal-baffle cabinets, bi-wiring, resonance-reducing spiked feet, battery-biased crossovers, high-pass-filtered powered subwoofers and powered-bass speakers with built-in room EQ are just some of the innovations that originated with Vandersteen Audio’s speaker products.

Devialet

Experience the ultimate high-end sound thanks to the wireless Devialet Phantom speakers and the Expert Pro audiophile systems.

GoldenEar Technology

We are often asked to describe the sound of our speakers. A simple answer would be that they are designed to sound like nothing except what is being played through them. Of course, a perfect loudspeaker would have no sound of its own and we do strive for perfection. But nothing is perfect, however, and so we would like to address this question by coming at it from several different directions.

Meridian

Since 1977, Meridian Audio has been crafting innovative, elegant, high performance audio solutions. From its compact DSP loudspeakers with integrated amplification, to its user-friendly music management platform Sooloos, Meridian delivers easy to install, high resolution audio systems for home cinemas and whole home solutions.

HiFi Preamps and Amps


The equipment in many ways is more important then the actual speaker.  Tube amps can significantly add warmth to the overall sound and a quality preamp can add depth that you wouldn’t know you were missing until you hear it.  McIntosh is a brand who has built a stellar reputation for reproducing sound as close to the original artist intended as possible, and some of our favorite cabling lines like AudioQuest make sure the power, line level signals and speaker level are not degraded at all along the way.  Audio Concepts not only provides knowledge and superior service on name brands that we feature in our certified showroom, you will also find treats on display from local California manufactures like VTL and Primaluna.

McIntosh

Audio Concepts is one of the longest standing McIntosh dealers in the state, we are the experts! McIntosh handcrafts legendary home audio products for home stereo and home theater systems. Our audio products have been made in the USA since 1949.

VTL is a local manufacture from Chino, California.  Superb quality preamplifiers, phonostages, and tube amplifiers.  The only way to understand the quality of audio that you can expect from a VTL driven system is to hear it for yourself.  Call us up and come in and check it out!

PrimaLuna is one of our favorite local manufactures.  With both integrated and seperate preamp/amplifier combinations, they have a system that will fit your budget and provide that warm soothing sound that you are definitely going to enjoy.   We highly recommend coming into our showroom to hear the Evo series paired with a set of Golden Ear Tritons.  For the price invested, its hard to come close to this kind of quality system.

Turntables


TURNTABLES

Audio Concepts is your premier location to demo and purchase your next (or first) turntable.  While we have specialized in turntable for over 30 years, we understand that vinyl is definitely in the middle of a major comeback.  We display and support some of the best lines available that also happen to be great values for the price.  Pro-Ject makes excellent turntables that span all kinds of budgets, and Thorens is also a brand that we keep many models on display.   If you are really looking for a high quality option, come in and hear the new McIntosh turntable we just put out on display!

Digital Media


DIGITAL MEDIA

Because of our expertise in the Custom AV industry, Digital Media is an area that Audio Concepts really shines.  With all the new formats out there, you can now actually listen to your favorite song in a format that is as good or even in some cased better then vinyl and analog.  MQA was developed my Meridian (the sames people who developed the popular Flac that Apple uses), with MQA you truly get the original “Master Track” like it is playing on the studio speakers during mixdown.  It doesn’t get much better, and at Audio Concepts we have a great way of integrating MQA into easy to use interfaces so you spend more time enjoying your music then trying to get your songs playing.

INTERCONNECTS


INTERCONNECTS

AudioQuest, Tributaries, Synergistic Research are a few of our favorite interconnect options.  The cabling you choose is just as important as the speakers and equipment you are driving them with.  In some cases the cabling can even improve your audio, like in the case of AudioQuest’s Dielectric-Bias System which solves a major issue of phase shift that most listeners hear but do not realize is going on.  Again this is where Audio Concepts can be the experts that help you ears hear the track the way it was meant to be heard.
