Best Sound for the Dollar 

The Sound Well

If you love music — not Dolby Digital Plus 7.1-channel surround sound, but high-fidelity audio — head to Berkeley's oldest stereo shop. Founded in 1974, just as quality equipment began infiltrating consumer electronics shops, the Sound Well offers an alternative to made-for-video home theater components that aren't designed for reproducing music. The Sound Well's repair service can keep your own vintage system healthy, and refurbished classics from respected brands like NAD, KEF, Adcom, Denon, and Dual sell for a fraction of their original retail prices. Gearheads can build out a high-quality system without having to cash out what's left of their retirement accounts, and those needing TLC for a beloved component will find the Sound Well's technicians knowledgeable and highly skilled. Don't let the store's limited public hours put you off; it's a friendly shop that stays alive by watching its bottom line.
