High-fidelity audio products designed and built in the United States
All of our products are designed in-house and "hand built" in Minnesota. This allows us to make sure the quality of your system is up to our strict standards. Each product we sell is inspected, tested, and measured. Then it is played in our reference system and listened to by experienced personnel. Office tunes never sounded so good! Only after we listen to your new or rebuilt equipment do we ship it to you. Quality is very important to us at Audio by Van Alstine and we are proud to offer it to you.
Products designed so they can be upgraded in the future
No longer do you need to replace entire components when you want to upgrade your system. With Audio by Van Alstine equipment, simply send in your existing product(s) and we will upgrade the internal circuitry to the latest design and technology with a significant savings over purchasing new. Our flexible chassis designs and beefy power supplies allow for future needs.
All products are custom built to order
Your order is not a mass-produced item already sitting in the warehouse. It will be carefully fabricated to your order, and you need to allow time for this to be done.
Products built with the finest components
All Audio by Van Alstine products are built from significantly better components than you will find in many systems. All of the components we use are hand-selected by our engineering team to make sure that everything works in harmony to give you the best possible sound with the reliability you expect.
Three-year warranty on all AVA-designed products
All AVA products are warranted for three years (Longhorn Grado phono cartridges have a one year warranty) . We offer a three-year warranty because we are confident that our products will perform flawlessly for many years beyond that. A long warranty is a sign of a well-built product. Our warranty is also transferable. But most importantly, we design so our products just won't break. The best warranty is the one you never have to use.
Thirty-day satisfaction guarantee
In addition to the three-year warranty we offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. You get to experience the sonic perfection of your new AVA system to make sure it's what you want. See satisfaction guarantee.
Superior customer service
When you call Audio by Van Alstine, you actually talk to the people who make up the company. Often, Frank Van Alstine himself is available to assist clients. You talk to people who know the products, not simply a call center. We will answer your questions and spend the time needed to help you make sure that you are purchasing the product that best fits your needs. We want you to be a long-term Audio by Van Alstine customer.
A variety of products so that you find the one best for you
Our preamplifiers and power amplifiers are offered in various models and sizes to best fit your needs and budget. For example, all Insight power amplifiers are designed to sound the same no matter what size you select. Whether you select our small footprint Insight 240 in the space conscious SL chassis or our super powerful Insight 440H in our full size amplifier chassis, both will have the same sonic performance perfection.
Functional design over flash
We concentrate on the sound and not the "bells and whistles" when designing our products. While flashing lights may impress some people, serious audio listeners know it's the sound that counts. We design our products to listen to. You don't pay for extra lights, extra buttons, or overly fancy cases that do nothing for the sound. With Audio by Van Alstine you get a classy looking system that reproduces music as lifelike as possible.
