Audioholics Launches eCommerce Store Designed by CE Pros

Introducing the Audioholics Store!

Introducing the Audioholics Store!

Audioholics.com, the world’s largest home theater publication, commemorates the next evolutionary phase with the launching of an Online Storefront offering some of the industry's finest products and services.

Audioholics has teamed up with a group of exceptionally talented individuals who are leveraging the Audioholics brand and bringing consumers a storefront that is backed by the expert technical informational resources of Audioholics.com. Consumers will be able to access Audioholics technical support articles, set-up tips and product reviews from within the Audioholics Store. Never before has a storefront been built on the back of an industry-leading magazine with an existing base of over 1 million readers per month and a reputation for no-nonsense recommendations.

Audioholics partnered with Woodland Venture Holdings LLC, one of the premier Internet businesses in America, to launch the Audioholics Store. Funded by leading members of the financial community (including the CEO of one of the largest asset management companies in the world), WVH is operated by top e-commerce professionals who own stores serving over 50 thousand satisfied customers per year. “We joined with them to realize our vision for the next phase for Audioholics,” said Gene DellaSala, President and Founder of Audioholics.com. “An ecommerce store carrying the best equipment and providing the best advice to home entertainment consumers is a logical progression that savvy consumers are looking for.”

With over a million unique visitors per month, Audioholics receives unprecedented attention thanks to superb editorial content and industry expertise. The e-Store will provide superior email, forum and customized help support headed by experienced custom installers with over a hundred years of collective experience in the products we carry.

Why Buy From the e-Store?

The e-Store is highly unique. Never before has a site been developed from the ground up by people more interested in AV products and community than in making money. We hope consumer reaction is: "Finally! An AV store built by the same type of people who shop there!"

Audioholics Store provides extraordinary advantages:

  • Lifetime Product Support
    Acquired a new piece of gear and have installation questions? No problem. Highly trained support team will help you get connected. Contact them  day or night - they will support you as long as you own your product.

  • FREE 3-Year Extended Warranty
    We know how much thought goes into choosing AV gear. That's why most products purchased from us qualify for our extended service agreement. Relax! We've got you covered for three years for free!

  • FREE Shipping on Most Products
    The Audioholics Store offers free shipping on most orders. We believe the price you see should be the price you pay. Simplicity at its best.

  • Unique Products Not Typically Sold Online
    Audioholics has strong relationships with top manufacturers, and is a trusted company. That's why we are authorized resellers of top lines from Yamaha, MB Quart, Marantz, EMP (a division of RBH Sound), APC, DVDO, VizionWare, Auralex Acoustics and many other top AV manufacturers. Count on superb support from us and our authorized manufacturer partners!

  • 30-Day Money Back Guarantee
    If you're not satisfied with your purchase, we'll refund your money - "absolutely no questions asked!" Read our returns policy for complete details.

Clint DeBoer, Editor-in-Chief for Audioholics.com noted that "Audioholics will continue maintaining its unparalleled content integrity by keeping the day-to-day management of both business models completely separate. We have a proven track record that goes back almost a decade whereby we adhere to a strict set of standards that protect both manufacturers and consumers alike from conflicts of interest and marketing-driven content. Audioholics is, in a word, technocratic and will remain so for the foreseeable future." The new Audioholics online store has launched with around 2000 product SKUs carried in their centrally located warehouse in Michigan.

Audioholics Store LLC is an authorized dealer for: Yamaha Electronics, Marantz, Engineered Music Products (EMP, a division of RBH Sound), Impact Acoustics, MB Quart, DVDO (Anchor Bay Technologies), APC (American Power Conversion), Auralex Acoustics, VizionWare, DVIGear, Ready Acoustics and many other great brands.

It is - 100% positive. Read my lips (or in this case text) - it is the same one. I know people who bought it at the closeout price. I can read a model number just like anyone else. It's an old 720p projector that was discontinued. It's original MSRP was $10K, but was then lowered to $5K and has been easily found for 2-2.5K.

If you scroll down this page, you'll see that this place has it for 2198, which isn't the cheapest I've seen it go for:

AVS seems to be down right now, but once they're back up, I can provide even more proof of it's closeout price should you need it.

I'm not trying to “call out” Audioholics, it's a new storefront and I'm sure it's an error of some kind.

Thanks for the further explanation.
Interesting that Projector central is not listing it as discontinued.

No problem - glad to help. Mid-priced pjs (3K-10K) are my thing. Very little happens in that price range that I don't know about. I'm a little obsessive about it, but that's what it takes to stay current with the market.

I also noticed that you have the Mitsubishi pjs (the HC4900 and the HC6000) listed as DLPs in the title of their listing, but in the body text that describes the product, they state that they're LCDs. They are, in fact, LCDs and the title should be changed to reflect that.

Did you pm Clint?

Also, there's a glitches thread for the new store in the feedback forum.

To the contrary, you rock… This is the kind of feedback we need, though feel free to PM me for a quicker resolution (I can't check these threads personally as often as I'd like).

We're checking into it now. Most of our direct manufacturing partners have processes in place that alert us when MAP drops, but for products we get through distribution we are finding that we simply need to be more proactive.
