I have known Vu Phan and have done business with him over the past ten years. Vu has always maintained a good assortment of high-end manufacturers of stereo hardware. Perhaps most importantly, Vu is a very patient, low-pressure salesman of his gear. He has permitted me to listen for extended periods of time to various combinations of hardware; this is a departure from any other audio-video dealer I have ever been exposed to. Vu has also offered well-reasoned advice about hardware, particularly the appropriate combinations of things like amplifiers, speakers, interconnects, and cables. I couldn’t be happier with my current home theater-sound system.
