Note: international customers that purchase a powered hardware product, please know that Simply Home Sounds sells products which are meant to be used in the USA with a 120VAC/60Hz circuit. Since you are not in the USA, it is your responsibility to ensure that the unit receives the proper voltage using a step up and/or step down voltage converter. Using this device with a voltage or frequency that is not 120VAC/60Hz may cause damage to the unit and greatly increases the risk of bodily harm or even fire. Simply Home Sounds is not responsible for damage to a unit that is not used with 120VAC/60Hz. Simply Home Sounds will also not be able to provide you with warranty service or a replacement product. Due to the high cost of shipping products internationally, Simply Home Sounds will not pay for the return shipping of the product back to Simply Home Sounds. All costs related to shipping a product for a return to and from Simply Home Sounds must be covered by the customer. Customers who refuse or abandon shipments will be charged all fees that Simply Home Sounds has incurred to retrieve the package.
Returns & Exchanges
If you would like to return an item, please contact us within 14 days of receipt and we will issue a return authorization (RA) number. All returns must be authorized by us in advance and any unauthorized returns will be refused or additional restocking fees will be added. Once issued an RA number you have 5 business days to ship back the item or we have the option to refuse the return or adjust the restocking fee accordingly. All returns must come back as factory fresh in 100% new condition in its original unmarked box or carton with all manuals, warranty cards, remote controls, factory internal packaging, etc. Adjustments or refusal will be made for any damages or missing items.

Therefore, please check your systems requirements and compatibility prior to purchase.
Phono cartridges and styli must be deemed defective by the product manufacturer, via microscope inspection and/or testing, before they can be exchanged.

In such cases, the item will not be returnable.

However, if you would like to exchange the item with an item of equal or greater value, then a credit will be issued and the restocking fee waived.
