Currently we do not ship. All items must be picked up in the store of your choice.
Read Me First
Welcome to Sound Exchange’s new website! It’s not like any other website that you have ever used so please read all of the explanations by clicking on the Help features that are little round blue question marks. These Help buttons will hopefully answer all of your questions. Send your comments via “Email” under the “Contact Us” tab.
We offer many new features including the ability to view, search, and order (reserve) inventory. In order to view our inventory you will be asked to select a store. You may click on either Tampa, Brandon, or Pinellas Park. This will direct your searches to that store. And if you want to order (reserve) an item, the selected location is where you can pick up the items that same day. Your order will be picked by our staff and will be awaiting your arrival! You can also extend your searches to include all three locations. Ordered items that include items from other stores will take a couple days to arrive at your chosen pickup location. You pay the same prices as if you were shopping in the store yourself, and there are no charges for any of these added services. You will simply come into your preferred location, be handed your order, pay the regular price for it, and enjoy it like always. The Sound Exchange Advantage: No Shipping Fees, No Internet Credit Card problems, No unwanted items to return.
Why don’t we ship? In addition to the above advantages we want to make sure that our stores always offer the best possible selection to you, our loyal, local customers. If we mail ordered, people from all over could (and would) buy many of our best items, and you, our local customers would not have the great selection that you now enjoy. We do not feel that this would be in your best interest or ours. We’ve got a good thing here and we want to protect it for you, our local customers.
When ordering (reserving) items from this website it is important that you realize that you are still shopping in a retail store (with the help of our staff). This means that occasionally we will not be able to find an item that you order. Just like when you are in the store shopping yourself, some items are misplaced or are in the hands of other customers. We do a pretty good job in that regard so you should expect that we’ll find everything most every time.
Thank you for your understanding.

Sound Exchange guarantees the quality and performance of every item that we sell. Each item is cleaned, tested, serviced, and repaired as necessary so that it works properly when you receive it. If the item fails to work properly, the customer has 7 days to return the item to the place of purchase. When an item is returned, Sound Exchange will make the necessary adjustments and/or repairs and return the item to the customer at no charge in cases where the conditions stated below have been met by the customer. If all of these conditions are met, and if- in the sole judgment of Sound Exchange- an item is deemed not repairable, the customer will receive a refund for the full purchase price of the equipment.
Under this guarantee, a no-charge repair or refund to the customer requires that the customer meet the following qualifying conditions:
- The item is returned to Sound Exchange within the return timeframe as stated above, along with the purchase receipt.
- The item is returned in exactly the same condition as when sold.
- Neither the customer nor another company has attempted any repair of the item.
- The item has been used in a manner consistent with the original manufacturer’s intended use or in a manner generally accepted for home use stereo equipment, and that – in the sole judgment of Sound Exchange – the item has not received any excessive or abusive use nor was damaged by power surges and/or any act of nature such as lightning.
Optional Extended Warranty:
Sound Exchange offers an Extended Warranty of one year for most items which can be purchased by the customer for an additional 10% of the ‘List Purchase Price’ (price before discounts, if any) of the item at the time of the original purchase of the equipment. The Extended Warranty covers mechanical and electrical component failures but not ‘consumable’ items or routine maintenance items such as belts, bulbs, cartridges, styli, nor routine maintenance procedures, if any, as prescribed by the manufacturer. The customer must provide his copy of the purchase receipt for the Extended Warranty at the time that an item is returned to Sound Exchange for consideration under this agreement for the Extended Warranty.
In the sole judgment of Sound Exchange, the extended warranty is void if the item:
- has been used in any way that is not within the intended use as specified by the original manufacturer, or
- has been exposed to any excessive use or abusive use, or
- is damaged by power surges and/or any act of nature such as lightning, or
- has been repaired, attempted to be repaired, or modified by any party other than Sound Exchange.
