i dropped by earlier, and frankly speaking, felt that i was not welcomed...i was looking around for a cheap and compact cd transport to put in my office, budget around RM1k+...

and so...just because my budget is small, i was being "judged"...when i subsequently enquired about the Kef X300A which was on display, and wanted to test the SQ, the salesman's facial expression was unexpected, and worse still, his response: this is rm3999, are you sure? he went on to comment that it sounds close to hifi-grade SQ, but for proper quality, need to position the speakers etc...he then took his own sweet time to locate, straighten the cable etc...to which i decided i was not going to test since his body language was hinting something to me...so i said "it's ok, no need to test"...and he pretended to be surprised...wtf?? i have more than enough space in my office room to put speakers on stands, and at a distance apart...you're judging me by my youthful looks that i'm just any other person looking for computer speakers, without proper space to setup optimum listening experience??

after that, i decided to decline pursuing the sound test, thanked him and walked out with clear decision never again to walk in to purchase anything in future...

is it wrong for walk-in customers to enquire and to request to test equipment?if it's not for testing, then why is it being put on display? why not just leave everything intact in the original packaging? without testing, how am I to know if I really want to buy it? many times I walk in to shops without intention to buy anything, but end up buying after testing and getting convinced by salesman about the product...sorry dude, your loss is my gain...i'll spend my money at other shops...

this is the first of many unpleasant encounters i have faced when dealing with audio equipment sales people...the other equally bad experiences were at Atlas (Bose) and CMY...i never trust online posts praising salesmen for being friendly and helpful etc, until i experience first hand...posts could have been made by friends of those salesmen with the intention to draw more prospective customers to the shops...

conclusion to my brothers here: give them the impression you have unlimited budget, and you will get the best treatment...give them the impression that you have limited your budget or not conclusively confirming intention to buy anything, you'll be treated like dirt

ahboy, I am sorry to hear about your lousy experience at Perfect HiFi.

You're right, only buy from people who treat you like a customer.

I am not trying to make any excuse for my self, however that friendly chap in this post called Jepson has not been working in Perfect HiFi since December 2012, due to health concerns.

So I am very sure I did not recomend the person who served you. I have no relations what so ever with Perfect HiFi or any other dealers represented in any of the articles here.

I make recomendations based on my own satisfactory pass experience when dealing with them. Your experience may vary.

no prob Big E...just wanted to highlight my bad experience for other people to be aware of so that everyone can be "mentally prepared" when walking into the shop

it's sad how some of these shops have sales rep with bad attitude...and it's damaging towards the shops' reputation...

Don't think this will be your last unpleasant encounter with those snobbish hifi salesman. Sometimes I wonder who is the buyer.

Try Ivan Cheng of Norman Audio. Same o same o.
