I tried some later hours and all I did was miss packages. So... back to the old hours. There will be a monthly "Hump Day Hootenanny"! Bring some records and libations! I'll have a featured system set up each time. Dates will be posted!
I'll be closed during SXSW (March 11-20). I'll also be attending the AXPONA show in Chicago (April 20-23)
Monday / Tuesday Appointment Only
Wednesday - Saturday 11am - 5ish...call if you plan on coming after 4pm
I'm available most of the time. Please call for an appointment!
I've recently gotten the Neat Iota Alphas in. These are easily the smallest floor standing speakers on Earth. I see them being used in every single condo being built in downtown Austin. One can dream..
My lovely wife Donna and I will be in room 4010. I'm really excited to be showing a full THÖRESS system! On hand will be the Phono Entzerrer phono pre amp, Füll Fünction pre amp, 845 SET mono blocks, F2a11 8 watt integrated amp and their newest integrated amp. Front end is a Sperling turntable with Fuuga cartridge. Swisscables throughout. Lots of really well curated records and a "Happy Hour" at 5pm on Friday and Saturday! Don't be a stranger!

I moved my hi-fi shop here 13 years ago from 'The Drag"! The Pedernales was the very first new build / mixed use on the East Side of Austin. I remember people coming in and asking me why in the hell I moved over here? I told them because it was affordable and in 10 years it will be insane. So here we are! The mixed use building across the street is nearly framed in. I'm hoping for Chinese take-out or a decent restaurant / bar. We'll see... fingers crossed.
The parking situation is going to be horrible. I mean MORE horrible. There are literally thousands of people moving here in the next few months I expect the city will throw up some parking meters at any time.
On that note, I've been thinking I need to offer different hours at the shop. My favorite time is Happy Hour! So, why not have Happy Hour at the shop? Instead of sitting on I-35 for an hour, come here and hang out! You won't have to use your lunch hour or wait until Saturday to come visit!
The new hours starting next week will be:
Monday: by appointment
Tuesday: by appointment
Wednesday: 3-7pm HAPPY HOUR!
Thursday: 3-7pm HAPPY HOUR!
Let's try it for a few months! I think it's gonna be a lot of fun!
Remember the best way to experience the shop is by appointment! I can also buzz you into the parking lot. win win.
