Every product we sell has clear shrink wrap protecting the contents as new. Once the clear outer wrapper is broken, the product is considered open stock and subject to return policies outlined below.

Any opened return must be in brand new, mint condition, and have all original manufacturer's packaging, materials, and accessories, including instruction booklets, packing inserts, and blank warranty cards. The original manufacturer's labeled packaging should be packed as it arrived to you, inside an outer shipping carton to protect it's contents. Please do not write or place labels on the manufacturer's packaging.

JPS LABS branded cables: Returns may be authorized within 14 days of purchase date, minus a 15% restocking fee, minus shipping charges both ways.

ELECTRONICS: Returns may be authorized within 14 days of purchase date, minus a 15% restocking fee, minus shipping charges both ways.

ABYSS HEADPHONES: These products contain expensive hand-made components and finishes such as lambskin ear pads and fine materials, and are worn by the user. Once the original package is opened they are considered used. Opened returns may be authorized within 14 days of purchase date, minus a 20% restocking fee, minus shipping charges both ways.

KR AUDIO TUBES: Due to the nature of high power vacuum tubes having a finite life dependent on usage (like batteries or light bulbs) once the package seal is broken your purchase is non-refundable.
