SOUNDSTAGE ULTRA REVIEW:
"To me, the result is clear: The ARC Reference 10 is one of the most thrilling, intoxicating, musically engrossing preamplifiers ever made. Congratulations to Audio Research Corporation for their aspirations and their execution. Kudos, too, for the introduction of a superior user interface, more attractive appearance, and tactile luxury.".

AUDIOGON FEEDBACK: We have a massive list of positive feedback over many years from Audiogon buyers many who purchased items over $25,000 and paid in advance via wire payment.
As the owner of HigherFi, a couple of years ago I contracted double cancer and was forced to stop selling audio gear while I fought for my life. Having made a complete recovery, I am now back on Audiogon but they tell me they cannot recover my long list of past clients. I have 100% feedback on eBAY since 1998 still today and as you can see above I am the only online dealer here with references from the EDITORS of most of the top audio publications so you know you are in honest and ethical hands when you purchase from us.
REFERENCES: Having been an audiophile and a reviewer for over ten years, I have dealt with many people in the industry. My experience with Chris Moon of HigherFi.com was one of the smoothest, hassle free experiences I have had. I’m sure we will work together again soon. Thanks, Greg Petan, Managing Editor/Stereotimes.com
"HigherFi is an honest, forthright seller of used high-end audio equipment. I have known Chris for over ten years and he has always been above board, knowledgeable, and a very good communicator. I would surely recommend him to anyone looking to sell very high-end audio components on a world-wide stage. I’m not sure there is anyone in the business today that’s sold more gear in the uber-end of the market. What else can I say? Highly recommended!" Jeff Fritz , Reviewer with UltraAudio
Dealing with Chris at HigherFi reminds me of the good old days. He’s good people and I respect his advice and square dealing." Wes Phillips - The Absolute Sound
"I had the pleasure of setting up a Genesis 1.1 Loudspeaker system with my buddy that was purchased through HigherFi. The buyer was very happy and we had a blast dialing that system in! Chris seems to have all the great toys and the knowledge to get them pumping out fantastic music." Michael Mercer, HPSoundings and Positive Feedback
