iod Sound be Hard?

WE LISTEN TO YOUI

Most audio salespeople spend so much time list-
ening to speakers they forget to listen to custom-
ers. At Hi-Fi Buys we know the most important
part of any sound system is the person who lis-
tens 'to it.

A SUIT FOR YOUR EAR'S

You come into Hi-Fi Buys, and you get fitted for
sound like you'd get fitted for clothes. Talking
with you, asking you questions we make up a
"sound profile" on your listening likes and dis-
likes. Things like the kind of music you listen to
m6st, the kind of room you listen in, if you like
the.volume up or down low, if you want some-
thing you can add to later.

WALK IN TO THE AVERAGE
AUDIO STORE

HEAR MORE!
SPEND LESS!

...and right away, you run into a barrier. A
mountain of technical equipment, surrounded by
even more technical language. You take a deep
breath, you tell them you want a good sound
system. They tell you, "what you want is the new
KDZ4567F, with biamplified dephasers, triaxial
limiters, compression expanders, bolby B, modu-
lar frequency rejection, intramural suspension,
binomial theorems, SQ, -Q8-, Cd-4, MPX and
dual E.E.C."

AND SO ON...

We do this profile whether you want something
small for your den, or big for your living room.
Or anything in between. Because with this pro-
file, we can give you lot's better sound than you
ever expected, for a lot less money.

An inexpensive system, chosen with your sound
profile, can actually sound better in your place,
with your music, than something costing nearly
twice as much.
How Come?
Because the . inexpensive system is planned
around your tastes in music, the way your room.
absorbs or reflects sound, how loud you like thRe
volume...etc.
Now Then.
The average salesman can't handle something
like this. It takes people who know their stuff to
plan sound this sensibly. It takes experienced
audio consultants, not simply salesmen. And
that's what you'll find at Hi-Fi Buys.

HI-FI BUYS PUT THE
YOU INTO SHOPPING
FOR STEREO

To begin with, there's nothing about good sound
that can't be talked about in good simple lan-
guage. So we speak English, not technicalese.
We talk over each thing, and what it does, why it
does it, and what advantages it offers you! Then
you know all you should know, and you make
your own mind.

IT'S YOU, OBVIOUSLY.

It takes a lot more thinking and effort, doing
more things this way. But this way you get the
kind of sound you've always wanted, but someh-
ow never got. We're making sound understanda-
ble and affordable, and best of all enjoyable.
