Berkeley Stereo adds a new connection. OkStereo in Oakland's Jack London Square continues with events and audio for the holidays. . . and THEREMINS!

Big Sound from beautiful Polk Audio Speakers, small enough to fit on a bookshelf!

As many experts on digital audio will tell you, (confidentially) analog sounds better.

Dollar for dollar, a vinyl record in good condition, played on a good turntable, sounds better than its digital counterpart—! More present, more accurate, more 3 dimensional, more Real!

And more fun. A good 1/4” tape can sound even better! Let us show you…

Our New Oakland


—— $329

Berkeley Stereo can help you put together a great system, based on the kind of music and sound that you like, to fit just about any budget. 

We have lots of outstanding new equipment as well as like-new vintage gear. Stop in and Listen for Yourself…

Inside. . . a Scott LC21 tube preamp with "Laboratory" 290 tube power amp   (44 watts per channel), Elac 50H turntable/Shure cartridge, and Large Advent speakers.

I just wanted to note here that pretty much nobody in this part of the country is living their normal lives. The last few weeks of fire, destruction, the loss of a whole town, has affected everything we do. The unbreathable air made this impossible to ignore, and news of the horrible aftermath makes it impossible to forget.
We are putting extra effort into reaching out to people and hoping to show that life really does go on— that learning, science and art are still important.
