What Is MyAudioListing?
We are a hi-end audio and video community that helps you find, sell, and buy your gears without fees and commissions while providing access to dealers and sellers across the globe.
We aim to be the best on-line classified listing place to buy or sell your audio and video equipment. The smart part should help you find your next gear or find a buyer for your equipment (without too much work). The delightful part should make you smile and keep you coming back.
We're obsessive about being the simplest site to use, but we don’t expect you to be without the rich features. Our team of engineers and analysts are focused on building enhancements — like our Feedback system and HTML listing capabilities — to enrich your on-line sales experience. On-line hi-end audio & video equipment sales just got much better.
MyAudioListing is also a tool for small and large dealers to market their listings and promote their services. If you are a dealer or a special equipment manufacturer, we've got an Expert section just for you. If you want to advertise on the site, you can now manage and control your own banner ads on any page that makes most sense for your business.
See our How to use MyAudioListing page for more information.
What We Are Not
We ARE NOT brokers or agents to any manufacture, dealer, or end user/s. We are not looking to make a commission on your sales transaction. We will not sell your personal information.
How We Make Money?
We make money through advertising and special ad enhancement, not off of listing fees and commission from your sales transactions. We will make a promise to you that this model will not change at MyAudioListing.com.
Here's the story: Small business and end users collectively spend millions of dollar each year trading, selling, and buying equipment online. Margin for profit for small dealers are shrinking while end users are already taking a loss selling their equipment. The last thing anyone needs is another middle man taking a piece of your sale.
Our business model is simple: We create the best on-line experience on the Web. You, your family, and friends use us. Dealers and manufactures advertise on our site. You find our site valuable enough to purchase enhancement for your listings (but not required). We continue to innovate to create an even better hi-end audio and video on-line sales experience.
What We Believe
* Selling your equipment shouldn't be a miserable and a costly experience
* Information of dealers, businesses, and specialty experts should be made freely and easily available
* Advertising should be easy and affordable to everyone
* This is your site and it is community based
* Great ideas come from user feedback
Personal Story from the Founder
I fell in love with music when I was a young boy at the age of 12. My parents owned a stereo & video store in the heart of Chicago, Illinois during the 80’s called K&S Electronics. My father started with a small shop repairing televisions and stereo equipment. Years later, the business grew and next thing you know we were an authorized dealer to some of the great retail brands (Sansui, Sony, Zenith, JVC, Panasonic, Marantz, Sharp, RCA and Bang & Olufsen). Now you may look at this list and say these brands are not what you would consider audiophile brand. But for me, as a young boy at that time, it represented a musical miracle. I loved to just sit in the listening room and listen to music until I got kicked out due to a customer demo. It was then I knew audio would be part of my life. I grew up and went to college and majored in (what else), Electrical Engineering. I personally designed my own amplifiers and learned the intricacies of electronics and of course, I visited every local stereo store I could find. Discovering at this time, some of the brands I have never heard of such as, “McIntosh, Proceed, Mark Levinson, Krell, Martin Logan” to name just a few. Nothing I could afford at the time, and I am sure the store owners were bothered with me coming in to drool over the equipment. Soon after I graduated from College, I got a job and moved to another city and tracked down the local audiophile stores nearby and negotiated very hard to obtain my first high end system. Those pieces of equipment are still around to this date at one of my friends’ home (Thiel 1.2 speakers and Linn front end). Yes, I say friend’s home, because as all audiophiles do, they trade up! Then, I started to trade online and started to buy and sell my equipment to people around the world. My first international sale was to a gentleman in Italy where I sold my Jeff Rowland – Coherence preamplifier and the rest is history.
Now that I am married to a wonderful wife with two beautiful children, I don’t quite have the luxury of sitting down for hours listening to my favorite music, but I still enjoy going to my friends’ homes to listen to my old equipment and new equipment they had purchased. It is these experiences that have led me to build this site for all audiophiles to come and share, and enjoy the buying and selling of equipment in search for their perfect gears.
Thank you for using the site and I hope this site becomes part of your story.
