Thanks From Another Happy Customer

I love to get snail mail when it’s personal – don’t you? Especially an unexpected thank you note. It’s better than free dessert, I think!


Scheduling Service

updated 9/17/2014

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 four weeks. Please call to schedule your car or in-home service. Car stereo walk-in’s are welcome but be aware that wait time can be lengthy. If you have equipment to drop off for repair, our store is now open Tue-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.


Noise canceling: follow-up

I posted about a strange feedback problem we encountered with our new Scosche subwoofer in a 2014 Honda Accord that turned out to be caused by a “noise canceling” system in the car, and promised a follow-up. Well, here it is. The customer came back, we disconnected the factory noise canceling system, and the customer was very happy with the work and with our Scosche product. So are we!

For $295 installed, it’s hard to beat this woofer. It’s compact, powerful enough for most people if you’re not into competition or brain damage, and musical enough to fill in the low bass that’s lacking from most car systems. I hope we can continue to offer it at this price point!

StereoMan now accepts credit cards

We’re all set up to make your installation and service purchases easier to manage. We can now accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards for all installation and repair charges.

StereoMan has Pioneer car stereo at great prices!


Pioneer AM/FM/CD with Aux jack for $120 installed!*

Pioneer AM/FM/CD with IOS/Android control AND Aux jack for $150 installed!*

Pioneer Am/FM/CD with Bluetooth AND IOS/Android control AND Aux jack for $189 installed!*


StereoMan stocks three great Pioneer car stereo products, at very competitive prices! Why take chances ordering on the internet when you can get everything you need and have it installed all in one place?


It’s just like that box store, only better, because it’s not a box store – it’s StereoMan!

Call or email StereoMan to schedule your installation appointment. Typical backlog is 5-7 working days. Tell StereoMan the year, make, and model of your car, and he’ll do the rest!


Get just what you need at a great price, directly from StereoMan!

StereoMan is pleased to offer a Pioneer Bluetooth model at an incredibly competitive price! This model boasts not only the features listed above, but is also steering wheel control ready, has a 5-band EQ, a 35% larger LCD display, an SD card reader, and electronic shock protection.

All this for $189 installed! That’s the total price for the head unit, trim kit, wiring adapter, tax and labor.*

* Some cars will be higher due to cost of special trim kit or wire harness. StereoMan will always let you know in advance if there is any additional cost. A few cars don’t require a trim kit, and in that case StereoMan will charge you less!


Now scheduling Saturdays!

StereoMan has changed his schedule to better fit yours! StereoMan now works on Saturdays and takes Mondays off instead. Be sure to call in advance to make an appointment for service, just like any other day. I’d love to say “drop ins are welcome” but honestly, it’s an inconvenience to my customer who already has an appointment, and it may be an inconvenience to you, if I’m out on service call when you decide to drop by.

StereoMan’s Rates

StereoMan’s labor rate is a mere $45 per hour! Most car stereos can be installed for a charge of $40. Routine maintenance and repair of stereo components typically runs in the $30 to $60 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.
