Hi-Fi Dealers - where are they?

Does anyone know of any hi-fi dealers in Switzerland? Would prefer Vaud but happy to travel anywhere if required.

Looking for high-end equipment like Wilson, Krell, Audio Research, B&W, Conrad Johnson, Martin Logan, Nagra etc.

Thanks

Re: Hi-Fi Dealers - where are they?

Hi, Bern has a dealer and I think Geneva has one but they do not have most of the high end. I would look on the web site's of the high end company's ... or do what I am and buy the stuff in the state's, I was in the high end business for 20 years so that makes it easy for me

Re: Hi-Fi Dealers - where are they?

Yes ,if you live in Switzerland, really you should use Nagra or as Richard says, Revox. We use both and they are both excellent when used with the right components. If buying Nagra it is worth making an appointment to visit the factory - Cheseaux - not far from Lausanne. Sometimes this is possible - we have done it. The equipment is superb, build quality (Swiss) and sound, but rather expensive. We still use a Nagra IV-S and Revox G36 + PR99 reel to reel machines as our source for certain recordings and they sound wonderful.

Re: Hi-Fi Dealers - where are they?

You are joking right ? Support issues notwithstanding , is this some misplaced "Buy Swiss" patriotism coming through ?

The Revox head office is in Regensdorf if you fancy visiting it...

The support from Revox is superb. I have never had any support issues with the Revox stuff I have and I have had need to call. They have even sent someone to look at a problem that came and went and it turned out to be overheating due to placing the "system" in a closed space... I was not charged for the problem...

You do not have to buy Swiss!!
But, give it a try. If you wish the best of high end audio some of this Swiss kit is there or thereabouts. Not all my gear is Swiss . The rest is of English or American manufacture. You do not need to go elsewhere.

Re: Hi-Fi Dealers - where are they?

If you want the best... Meridian digital is at the top... I also had Revox tape and still have my Goldmund (swiss made) turntable. I sold Hi End stuff for 20 years and there are many fine makes of audio out there

Great gear but do not ever sell the Goldmund turntable! We still use a modded Thorens TD124
