Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.
We offer a 30 Day Return Policy should you choose to return a product for any reason.
Since 1972 Sound Approach has backed all items that we sell. If the product you have purchased is not right for you, let us know. We strive to find the right product for your unique situation. We will work with you to find a sound solution and recommend what product will resolve your issue. That being said, we will credit, refund, or exchange any product you purchase within 30 days of your purchase.
Certain products, may be returned, but are subject to a restocking fee of 20%. Please contact us to determine, before ordering, if the item will fall into this category. Usually it is for the high-end electronics & audiophile-grade speakers. We want to make sure that we match you with the correct product, so please call and speak to any of our technical experts prior to ordering.
Four Important Conditions:
1. We need to get the original box, manuals, and any materials that came with the product for you to receive a full refund- with no re-stocking charges. The item/product must still be in like-new condition.
2. If the item had Free Shipping and you are returning a non-defective product, the original shipping cost will be deducted from the total that will be refunded back.
3. Special Ordered items are not returnable (see below).
4. Once an RMA is issued- it is valid for 10 business days. After 10 days, the RMA is canceled and returns will not be accepted.
Shipping and handling charges cannot be reimbursed unless it is our mistake. Yes, we can make mistakes – not often, but it can happen.

April Music - Stello Ai700 Integrated Amplifier
This Stello Ai700 features cool contemporary modern styling, extensive connectivity, and advanced performance. The Stello Ai 700 will bring storied April Music technology to an entirely new population of music fans - those who seek the ultimate blend of high style, reliability, technical excellence, and extreme musicality.
The Ai700 combines state-of-the-art analog and digital circuitry with features sure to please the most demanding music lovers. With power output reaching 300 Watts/channel @ 4 Ohms, the Ai700 is compatible with virtually all loudspeakers. The Ai700 features an oversize power supply, a Cirrus logic CS3310 digital volume control for precise sound level adjustment, four pairs of analog line inputs, a "bypass" pair of inputs for direct feed of the output stage, and digital inputs for every source: disc player, PC, iPod, and cable TV receiver.
Unique contemporary styling takes the Ai700 into the realm of functional art. A full-function remote control makes it a joy to use from anywhere in the room!
Precaution: The Ai700 runs warm because the output transistors' working point is set for better sound performance. This may cause some heat when this unit is run for a long time. This won't affect the life of this unit, but it's best to place the Ai700 on an open shelf where it has plenty of ventilation. Closed cabinets are not good.
The Ai700's solid-state circuitry includes high-speed, low-noise transistors, and direct coupling throughout. Meticulous ground isolation techniques insure superb signal-to-noise ratio. Much care has been taken in the selection of components and the layout of circuitry for low noise, fast response time, and linear frequency response. We are confident that the Ai700 is among the very best preamplifiers on the market, at any price. Small-signal capacitors, where needed, are all 1% tolerance Wima brand resistors.
Stello Ai700's output stage employs matched Hitachi MOSFET power transistors in Class AB push-pull configuration. Class AB offers the best trade-off between high performance and high efficiency. Input circuitry, gain stage, drive stage and bias net are April Music's unique proprietary circuitry, with optimum signal transfer and minimum phase shift.
Digital signals received via COAX and OPTIC inputs are processed by the digital input receiving circuit. Likewise, the USB signal from a PC enters the USB DAC through the digital input receiving circuit.
Separate power supplies deliver super-stable DC voltages to the preamplifier and DAC circuits. The power amp's supply has tremendous current reserves for lifelike dynamics. With an overlarge 800VA toroidal transformer, fast-recovery rectifiers, and an enormous capacitor bank (90,000uF), the Ai700 will never "run out of breath" even with the most demanding music and the most difficult loudspeaker loads.
Ai700 features Neutrik balanced connectors, gold-plated RCA jacks, and gold-plated speaker terminal binding posts.
