This was the first time I ordered anything online and I was a bit
skeptical. But since I used a credit card, I wasn't particularly
warried because even if something were to go wrong, I probably wouldn't
pay for the charges.
The secured line convinced me that Sound Conceptions was serious about
their online business. I felt reassured.
The package of CD changer came in about a week and everything was
perfect. The tech sheets were great help in installing the CD changer
to my Acura. Overall, I am satisfied with Sound Conceptions and will
continue to do business with them.

To Whom it may Concern:
I have never been so satisfied with a car stereo dealer as I am with
Sound Conceptions. I am so amazed at how low your prices are that it is
a wonder that you are still in business! Most of the products that I
saw were priced $40-$50 less than all competitors! Not only are prices
low, but the shipping time is lightning fast. I placed an order on a
Friday and I thought it would arrive at some time at the end of the next
week. It was at my door first thing Monday morning! Add to all this
the convenience of fax ordering and many discount promotions and you
have Sound Conceptions. Thank you for making ordering over the internet
a wonderful experience and keep up the excellent work.

Dear Sound Conceptions
would like to mention how pleased I am with your store. Your prices
are incredible. I have yet to find another store on the internet or
any other place that matches your prices. I got my speakers at
nearly half off the closest published price. Even though you have low
prices, that doesn't mean you have low service. My order was
processed and shipped in a timely manner (about 3 days), which I greatly
You also answered all of my questions I asked before I purchased
anything. This was only my first order, but I soon hope to be a repeat
You guys have a great thing going with an excellant web site including your
I try to stop on by a couple of times a week to see what new specials you
have going on
Thank you, Sound Conceptions

I recently made my first purchase with your company. At first I was a little apprehensive about doing business with a company that doesn't list a
customer service phone number. But I went ahead and did it anyway because the prices were the best I had found. I'm glad to say that the shipment
arrived fine and the merchandise in factory fresh condition.

I ordered a Clarion 7475 head unit from you on a Saturday in July, got
it UPS ground on the following Wednesday, in only 3 business days, and I
live way over here on the west coast. Your price on it at was $145 less
than (mail order firm edited out), and at least $50 cheaper than any other internet
stores. Your included instructions were very thorough, who else would
have thought to include a 3 step way to crimp connectors. The cd player
is great. There's nothing quite like the seeing the reaction from
passengers in my car when they see my stereo scanning words across the
screensaver telling me to drive carefully when I put my keys in the
ignition. Anyway, I'm pleased with the unit, and especially with your
fine company. Expect to hear from me soon, I think I'll spend the money
I saved the deck on a new set of 6x9 speakers.

Autotoys is the ultimate in car audio internet shopping. The whole
process of ordering was very easy and secure. I received my cd changer
in about 2 days. I would recommend this autobuys to anyone wanting a
great deal on car audio.

Just wanted to say thanks for providing an alternate method of
purchacing car-audio equipment. Sound Conceptions saved me over $300 on
my last order of three pioneer amps (922, 522x2), not to mention the
quick delivery, professional packing, and tech sheets. Thanks again...

I ordered a Sony MDX-C7900 Minidisc unit from you and I certainly can say
I'm a very happy customer
I'm impressed with your no-nonsense and effective process. The entire
experience, from placing the order, email correspondence on the
installation, to receiving the well packaged unit at the expected arrival
time has been positive. I support your clear and concise return policy, to
keep abuse at bay, thus able to keep the price to absolutely low.
The installation is in a 1996 Land Rover Discovery. The unit replaced the
Pioneer OEM (piece of sh@#) head unit. It mates beautifully with the
somewhat-limited factory speakers system once I gave up trying to interface
to the Pioneer OEM (piece of sh@#) amplifier at the passenger side footwell
(by splicing into the amp harness). I could not rid the alternator induced
buzz because the factory amp does not use shielded connections to the head
unit and was not about spend a day to figure out other possible causes.
Keeping the OEM subwoofer/amp functional required adding two 33k resistors
(from RL and RR to the L-in and R-in to the subwoofer amp)at the amp
connector to attenuate the excessive gain. The unit's 40Wx4 is totally
adequate for sensitive listening level without excessive bass boost. I
mounted the rotary commander at the console on top of and forewent the rear
window control lock-out switch. The chosen location affords safe control of
all front panel setting of the head unit while vehicle is in motion.
I had always like Alpine car systems in the past but now I am sold on
Sony's. Sony should be credited for the excellent design and execution of
such a seamless head unit. Personally, the ease of handling of Minidisc for
mobile application really make CD changer unnecessary. Now I can leave my
CDs at home and not have to deal with loading and unloading the CD changer
cartridges. The unit sound as good as my high end Alpine system with AiNet
CD changer costing much more in the VW Westfalia.
You are right that a adapter harness is not available because of the factory
amplifier under the passenger seat (actually in the passenger footwell).
The total cost of the upgrade comes just under $300 with shipping (you gave
$5 discount as promised if the order is placed by FAX), compare to the
average street price of $399 is unbelievable!
I will refer friends in market for car audio.

Dear Sound Conceptions:
Your company is wonderful. I shopped around for weeks looking for the
Panasonic CX-DP601 changer for my Audi A4. After comparing prices at
local stores as well as other internet retailers, your price was by far
the lowest and your package was the most complete; including the
changer, brackets, and adapter. All my questions were answered promply
and my changer was at my door within days of ordering it. With the
intructions provided, installation was a breeze. I was listening to
CD's within half an hour of opening the package. Thank you very much
Sound Conceptions for helping me save over 500 dollars from what my
dealer would have charged me :)

At first I was reluctant to buy from Sound Conceptions because I
figured, "Who can sell stuff this cheap and still make a decent profit,"
but I decided to order anyways. And I'm glad I did because I saved
close to $200, and I got my order fast.
