I had a positive experience with Stereo King. Their prices are reasonable, and guaranteed to be less than the chain prices of Car Toys or otherwise. They are an obvious small local business, who really knows their stereos.

They can solve any problem, and connect you with anything you want, and they're proud of what they do. With a shrine like display of photographs you can see the crazy stereo set-ups they've installed over the years.

My only complaint was how long I had to wait for my vehicle to get out. It took several days to get an appointment, and for a stereo upgrade, they had it for a good portion of the day. I wasn't expecting that, but its completely forgivable compared with their redeeming positive qualities!

Thank you Stereo King!

I'm also a long time customer (8 years) and I think the previous reviewer hit the nail on the head! Stereo King is the kind of place you go to for serious purchases. Not that you couldn't or shouldn't go there for minor stuff too. But if you ever walk into the place on a Wednesday afternoon, which is my day off, and you see how crazy it can get on their sales floor ON A WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON you must come to the obvious conclusion that these customer's do "know something the other reviewer don't". Just drop by Car Toys on a Wednesday. That sound you hear is boredom.Some may also be intimidated because they don't always respond to the customers like mindless robots ("Wazzup?" instead of "HelloandwelcometocircuitcityhowmayIbeofassistancetoyoutoday?"). They dialed in my WRX's system & I give them a thumbs up! (Parker)

My family has been going to the people at Stereo King for over 18 years and we have never had anything less than a 100% positive buying experience at this company. We go to the one in Clackamas whenever we want to get anything for our cars and boats (we have bought 6 complete systems from them). My husband is a service manager for one the largest auto dealers in Oregon, so the fact that he won't go anywhere else might tell you something about his opinion too.My friend told me that she doesn't always like shopping in smaller stores because there isn't as much selection as the bigger malls (She likes Best Buy), but she also said that the last time she went in to Best Buy for some advice on buying a pair of speakers, she couldn't help but feeling like she knew more about what would work for her than the 19 year old lady that helped her did.IMHO - Stereo King is really more of the place to go when you need expert advice and service. Yeah they don't wear name tags and uniforms, but that's probably because these guys don't need to. Everyone that I've ever seen in there seems to be on a first name basis with these guys. There must be something to this company that some of the other reviewers just don't get. Maybe there is the type of store that people who are just shopping like to go to, and then there are the type of stores that buyers go to. I suppose the place could use some new paint but who cares, I go there to have my car taken care of and it comes out super every time. Their prices are competitive & I would highly recommend them!

We went to Stereo King to get an alarm system installed in our truck. It was total chaos in there. Very hard to get any help from employees. It took a long time to get someone to finally get the alarm system installed in the truck. I would definitely recommend them.

I'd say.. meeeh. This place was nothing special and there are other places you can go that don't put as much pressure on you to buy and are more there to answer questions.

I really did not like this store. I felt that I was being pushed into buying something that I really didn't want or need. The sales people were just trying to get me to spend my money I would not recommend this store.

I've only been in Stereo King once, but I didn't like it. It was dirty, small and felt slimy. Compared to Car Toys it is the exact opposite. I would not recommend.
