If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out PS Audio’s new website, please do.
The new site replaces our nearly 10-year-old version that, while still useful, had outlived itself and was in desperate need of a rebuild. I hope you enjoy it.
I wanted to make you aware of a fairly major change made possible by the new technology behind the rebuilt site.
As you may know, in the United States PS has a one-of-a-kind trade-in program where we buy back your older gear at its full retail price. That amount is agreed to upfront and the new PS Audio gear is sent to you for audition at retail minus the trade-in product’s value. You then have a month to decide which to keep: the new PS product or your trade-in. That’s a pretty sweet deal.
This works great if your trade-in’s original MSRP isn’t a lot higher than what you’re buying from PS—there’s only so much we can offer folks towards the purchase of new gear. For example:
Trade in a 2014 Denon AVR-4802R, MSRP $2250 towards the purchase of a BHK 250 power amplifier, MSRP of $7,499.
$7,499 retail – $2250 trade = $5,249.
You pay $5,249.
But what if the trade-in originally retailed for more than the maximum allowed for a given PS product? In the past, there wasn’t much we could do about that, but now there is.
Our programmers have figured out a way to build a sort of savings account for you. Whatever credit is not used from your trade-in is now kept in an account available to you for any future purchases. It’s a small tweak but one we’re excited to launch. You can read the details here.
In the meantime, have fun with the new site. There are still bugs to work out (like Copper Magazine), and let us know if you find any quirks.
We’ll be tweaking and fine-tuning the site over the next few weeks.
