It’s been a strange Winter season, hasn’t it? I expected there would be at least a few days that I’d have to cancel or postpone appointments due to inclement weather, but so far … knock on wood!
As February gives way to March, our seasonal temperatures typically moderate from the occasional single digits of early Winter to lows rarely dipping below 20. I have no qualms about working outside in those temperatures. Snowfall might prevent me from driving … but we’re not getting much of that this Winter either, are we???

Once again this year, StereoMan is participating in Asheville Home Grown, the “Go Local” movement that connects the people of our Asheville region with locally produced goods and services.
Each year, Asheville Home Grown produces a booklet containing dozens of coupons offering significant savings at local businesses. We encourage you to buy the booklet and use as many of the coupons as you can! Our coupon offers a 15% savings on a car stereo install or on a home theater or whole house sound consultation.

StereoMan provides in-home service and car stereo installation by appointment throughout the Asheville area, Tuesday through Saturday. Backlog for appointments is often a week or more, and bench backlog is currently six weeks. Please call to schedule your car or in-home service. Car stereo walk-in’s are discouraged due to the tightness of my schedule. If you have equipment to drop off for repair, my door is open Tue, Thu, and Sat 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please be prepared to make a $25 deposit on all repair items, that is my minimum bench charge. For your convenience we accept all major credit cards.
StereoMan’s labor rate is a mere $44.86 per hour! Most car stereos can be installed in one hour. Routine maintenance and repair of stereo components typically runs in the $30 to $75 range. If it’s going to be more, you’ll get a call first!
Despite having to increase his travel rate due to ever-higher prices at the pump, StereoMan’s travel charge is still a very reasonable $10 for the first 5 miles (one way) and $2.00 per mile thereafter.
