The top 5 home audio stores in Toronto

The top home audio stores in Toronto cater to discerning clientele with top brands, knowledgeable staff, and excellent customer service. They know you have golden ears that require the lowest noise-floors and best signal-to-noise ratios money can buy. But, hey, if you'd rather jam a Q-tip into your cochlea, then listen to music from an iPod dock.

Here are my picks for the top home audio stores in Toronto.

Audio Oasis
A Leslieville institution, Audio Oasis not only offers top-quality new and used audio equipment, but they design and manufacture their own renowned line of amplifiers and components, Audio Zone. Known for finding the best solution to suit any budget, they offer friendly advice to neophytes and audiophiles alike.

Planet of Sound
Servicing the west-end of Queen, Planet of Sound maybe one of the friendliest audio-shops in Toronto. They're known for helping their clientele see through the marketing hype and technical specs to make the best purchase to suit their needs and fit their budget.

Bay Bloor Radio
In business for 70 years, Bay Bloor Radio is less a place for true audiophiles, catering instead more to mainstream consumer electronics. They've stayed on top of technological trends, while retaining their family business commitment to excellent customer service.

Audio One
For the less budget-conscious, Audio One offers top-of-the-line speakers, components, and accessories. They'll also do customized installations of home theatre systems, audio-video systems for venues and businesses, and full home-automation systems.

Ring Audio
Classic, vintage stereo gear-heads know their equipment is irreplaceable. Nick and Ted at Ring Audio are the city's experts when it comes to maintenance and repair of your treasured tube-amps, eq's and turntables. They also stock the best in vintage analogue components and accessories.
