About Us HomePage
What do the following list of manufacturers have in common?
Well, yes, they're all stellar brands that we carry here at Overture
Audio. They're also brands that will not allow their equipment to be
sold via the Internet. There will occasionally be a website that claims
to have some of this gear, but beware. At best, they might have a used
piece, or a refurbished piece transshipped from another dealer, which
will not carry any kind of warranty. They may not even be in the US.
In lieu of an actual manufacturers' warranty, these websites will often
offer their own guarantee - which is rarely worth more than the paper
it's printed on.
More commonly, they'll take your credit card number, and the game begins.
After a few weeks, they may tell you that the product is "backordered".
After that, they will often suggest that they have a better deal on
a different piece of gear that they'd like to unload. They may just
not answer their phones or your emails. If you're lucky, you might get
your money back after they've used it for a few months. If you're not
lucky, well, we hope it wasn't a lot of money…
The best way to be sure whether or not someone is an authorized dealer
for a product is to simply ask the manufacturer. Before you spend hundreds
or thousands of dollars, it's certainly worth a phone call or an email
to check. Overture Audio will be happy to provide phone numbers or email
addresses of our manufacturers so you can get your information straight
from the source.
Overture Audio is a Michigan retailer. We do not engage in mail order
sales outside of our product line territories. We strongly recommend
that you develop a relationship with a reputable retail store within
a few hours driving distance - the Internet is handy for information
gathering, but it's not a substitute for the critically important experience
of auditioning and comparing equipment in person.
companies we represent are very selective about who sells their gear.
If you find a store that sells several of the same brands as Overture
Audio, the odds are very good that you've found an excellent retailer.
You are welcome to call or email us and we'll put you in touch with
a dealer that we know, or with the distributor of the product you're
