While it is not recommended to purchase a key Hi-Fi system component without first auditioning it carefully, that is why we have demonstration rooms and a 14 day trial period policy.

However in certain situations it can be difficult for people to get to our showroom and for those instances we can offer our mail order service.

If you would like to audition a SW1X Audio Design product(s) at home, we offer a 14 day trial period for all basic versions of our performance level 1-3 products.

Following some questions about your audio system to gauge suitability, we manufacture and ship the product(s) within the usual 2-4 week delivery period following receipt of payment in full.

If for some reason the product is not to your satisfaction during the 14 day trial period, your payment for the product will be refunded following safe return.

All we ask is that the equipment is returned in the same condition in which it left the factory.

All prices are as stated on the price list are ex works, i.e. exclusive of the costs of delivery.

All costs associated with shipping are a responsibility of a buyer.

We also offer various financing options such as payment in instalments and pre-payment. Please contact us for further details.

We accept all major ways of payments by Check, Bank Transfer, Credit Cards or Paypal.


Upgrade and Trade in Policy


Upgrade path is build in products of SW1X. Everything great sounding can still be upgraded with something even better. We therefore have created a SW1X Performance Level System, which can be experienced from entry level and move up if one tries a higher specified version or higher performance level product.

One can elevate the experience if one already owns a SW1X product and wishes to upgrade either components & materials, a product version or to step up  to a higher performance level. This can be done with following terms and conditions:

All original first-owner products can be traded in. If one purchased a product through a dealer, the same terms and condition apply. If in doubt please contact us and send the serial number in question.

The price for the upgrade is either a) the price of an upgrade option plus cost of labour or b) the difference between the original price of a product as was stated on the price list at the time of a purchase minus discount and the price of a new product. The only other cost is for traded in old products is shipping and custom duties, if applicable.


Pre-owned Product Purchase Policy


Should a rare opportunity arise to purchase a SW1X product from a second hand market, feel free to make use SW1X Audio Design as a middleman. Please ask the seller to send the product to us instead directly to yourself for a check.

We shall  look inside (test, measure and may even update) and re-package it  before sending it over to you. All this will be done to insure that a product arrives in perfect working order. The additional cost of this service is only the cost of shipping from SW1X factory to you.

If a product is being serviced, there is an opportunity to carry out some updates or upgrades in materials & components,  such as upgrade of capacitors or re-working some power supplies or adding additional input or output  and  perhaps having a fresher looking front, back or top panels.
