Jamie is great to deal with!

Dave Nelson

I bought a pair of Magico speakers from F1 Audio and had them shipped to my home. Throughout the entire process, I dealt with Jamie Pauls. I can’t be more complimentary of the care Jamie provided. He helped arrange the shipping and communicated regularly with email and photos. Extremely knowledgeable, straightforward, and easy to work with. The quality of sound coming through the speakers has left my family and friends stunned. My enjoyment of music has been significantly upgraded for years to come! Sincere thanks to Jamie and everyone at F1 Audio for their expertise and help in upgrading my audio experience!

John Oberstar

Very knowledgeable, didn’t push product, and he really listens to your musical needs. Also one of the nicest stores I’ve ever seen in general. Jamie has a true passion for what he does. I would recommend this place to both newbies and well-invested audiophiles.

Neil Baumann

Jamie has both “Uber” high end and “stuff for the regular guy wanting to dip his toe into the high end” arena. GREAT selection, patience and above all, good one on one service. HIGHLY Recommended.

Andy Match

Jamie is the most knowledgeable person I know when it comes to high fidelity. He’s an extremely nice person and is more than reasonable in his pricing. There is no reason to shop and compare his store with other stores. The spectrum of products from low to high price range is met at his store. Whatever your needs, Jamie will fill them. I feel fortunate to have “discovered” him!

David Buckman

Great store! Awesome display of ‘the good stuff’ coupled with one-on-one high expertise service and an honest caring for customers. Jamie rocks!

John Loranger Pearl Audio Video

Jamie and team do an amazing job. The service is great and the workmanship is always top notch. If you have any audio or visual need F1 is the place to go. We have been using them in our home and business for over fifteen years. Highly recommend.

Colin Wickstrom Wickstrom Auto Group

It’s so nice to see a business that is truly a passion. From the second you walk in the door you’ll see that a lot of care and attention to detail has gone into creating a comfortable and elegant retail showroom to showcase amazing products. Jamies’ knowledge of the product and his obvious excitement regarding high end audio shines through. Go in for a listen and you will not be disappointed!
