Australia’s New Destination for Hi-Fi Bargains

There is a new destination for scoring a hi-fi bargain in Australia, and while the range is significant, the prices are low.

Australian hi-fi and home cinema retailers and distributors inevitably end up with hard to sell or unsaleable stock. The reasons are many and varied - from superseded models, returned items, repaired items returned under warranty, demonstrators, display stock. Or products that are brand new, but the packaging may have received some damage. Sometimes there is simply overstock of a given model due to over-ordering or seasonal fluctuations in demand.

We have heard this stock referred to a Z-stock, B-stock, dead stock, and even other names not fit for print. Either way, it is a burden on retailers and distributors, and ties up vital cash flow.

And this is where Hi Fi Disposals, steps in. With over 90 years of collective experience in the Australian AV industry and the ability to provide product and sales support, Hi Fi Disposals boasts an in-house service department and what they believe “offers the best technical support and after-sales service available.”

This story goes back further than that, though. Hi-Fi Disposals was created in 1991 in Camberwell, Victoria, during the Recession 'we had to have' and predominantly operated a retail version of the same business model as described above. Consumer reaction was extremely positive at the time, as the only other option at the time was the now redundant printed Trading Post, which even then was very inconvenient, clumsy, time-consuming and often risky. After a very successful period, Hi Fi Disposals was shelved until a time at which technology allowed it to thrive online, and that time has arrived.

Hi-Fi Disposals collates and curates the very best of this stock, thoroughly examining, testing, and grading it, then making it available to savvy AV enthusiasts at heavily discounted prices. All items for sale on Hi Fi Disposals have been extensively tested by Hi Fi Disposals' professional technicians, and assigned a clear, objective grade for full transparency. For additional peace of mind, they also offer a full 6-month warranty on all items.

Hi-Fi Disposals covers the spectrum of equipment from brand new product to classic/museum/nostalgic models, accessories and even spare parts.

To keep prices low for the buyer, there is no retail experience on offer; it is a purely online process with delivery Australia wide (unless otherwise stated). For selected items and strictly by appointment only, Hi Fi Disposals will demonstrate the working of a potential/selection purchase. But with a business built on its commitment to its customers, staff will be available for sales inquiries via e-mail and telephone during weekdays and business hours.

If after reading this you are itching to grab a bargain then you are in luck, is now live and already boasts an extensive collection of superb Hi-Fi with listings being updated on a weekly basis.
