Our specialty is high-performance, high-value, budget audiophile equipment
Located in the historic Metropolitan Storage Warehouse across from the MIT campus, Q Audio is housed in the original Tech Hifi retail storefront. Since 1967 this address has been a hifi store selling new and used equipment to enthusiasts all over the world.
Q Audio began as a mail-order seller of used hifi equipment in 1973 with advertisements in the classifieds of Audio magazine. By 1977, the emphasis was on the resale of American and European classics with exports to Japan the thrust. In 1980, the store opened for retail sales. In 1981, Q Audio added new equipment to the product mix with Hafler kits selling briskly to MIT students. In October 1982, Q Audio went to the Tokyo Audio Fair and imported the first CD players into the United States for resale.
We actively take trades, and buy/sell used products.
