Frustrated with the waiting time.
I booked my car in for the aerial to be looked at as it was not picking up AM. It was booked for 3pm but was not looked at until 5pm. I had to wait, I did some shopping of an hour and upon returning to the shop the car was not looked at. I had to wait another hour in the shop and no chair was offered during this time.
I went away feeling quite frustrated and in the end they could not fix the problem.
Damaged my door speaker cover while installing dash cam
I booked my Mercedes clc 200 kompressor to have dash cam , reversing camera and in dash media player , and when I went to pick up my car I straight away noticed to broken speaker cover on driver side door . Long story short the owner of the business replaced my broken part and I was a happy customer
Great shop very happy purchasing from them.
Very easy to navigate their store, had the product in stock.
They are a great shop for my audio needs and I am most happy with my new stezza.

Good Service and quality products
Bought a Pioneer head unit. they are the only people who had the item for reasonable price. Buying a sub-woofer today. I was checking head-unit prices for more than two weeks. These guys are awesome. recommend to anyone.
Some good, more not good though
Oct 2018 I bought pair of component speakers, pair of 3 way speakers and an amp. The amp was ex demo. In December 2018 I went back for double din dab head unit and Ford Focus facia. I never installed in the focus having turned the car over in June 2019 to a Kuga. I finally got around to installing speakers and amp but had the amp wiring performed by Sound Master Granville (closer to me) in Nov 2019. Amp was dead. So went into Strathfield car radio and they accepted that amp I bought 13 months earlier had only just had its first install and that...they would recognise warranty if needed. (that was great). Anyway they wanted to ascertain it was a dead unit, so had to bring car back another time. (More tolls and petrol). Confirmed it was an internal short and would credit me the cost. Put towards new amp which they connected up. Previous evening I tagged every wire. Glad I did. On pickup Danny noted the previous wiring had power and signal cords running together (I admit that isnt good practice), it didnt sound right and recommended they rewire the lot. . I got home and I checked speaker terminal block. All wrong. (BLAUPUNKT was L-,L+,R-,R+. Replacement Pioneer was L+,L-,R-,R+. So wires 1 2. 3 4 L to R were done 1243. Shouldve been 2134. I swapped and sounded fine. So Im assuming original wiring was correct. (If I hadnt had tagged the wires I wouldve been caught between two providers saying theyd done right). I called Strathfield next day and was informed they check phasing and dont rely on what was previously wired. That wasnt my experience. So in summary they recognised warranty for item 13 months old (yeah), but had put a dead item out of the box back into a box for clearance sale (boo), and tried getting me to get them to do a re wire (boo). Maybe if I went with them for a complete purchase and install they might have been more attentive. Anyway not sure now if I (or one of my children) ever have a bigger install Id ever go back.

Amazing customer service ! Very friendly, quick and know exactly what they’re doing. Made me feel very comfortable and confident with their work.
Great service ever!!!!
3 weeks ago based on a recommendation from a friend, I visited SCR in Concord because the AUX in my car was not working. I made an appointment and on arrival one of your staff members Danny came to greet me and immediately checked my stereo system. Following the service, I asked if he could please send me a report for AAMI to which he did immediately. I just wanted to say that I was very happy with the service, the professionalism of the staff and I would highly recommend this company to anyone that needed a good professional service. Additi...onally it was an absolute bonus to find that as my service took less than 15 minutes I didn't have to pay a cent. Very happy! Please note that the address on your website states you are situated at 57 Parramatta Rd, Concord, however you are situated at 59 Parramatta Rd, Concord

Great pricing, excellent service
I checked the websites of a number of online stores and Strathfield Car Radios were the most competitive for the multi-media unit I wanted for my Isuzu D-Max. The purchase process was fast and simple and the unit was delivered to my business address within 2 days.
10/10 and helpful
The technician was very polite, very helpful, very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions that had to be asked. the technician's knowledge of the product is exceptional.

6 out of 10. Fantastic sound.
I made my purchase over the phone, but everything, including the price of all the individual components was e-mailed to me. The only problems i have had with it are the Subwoofer packing it in after less than 3 months and the crossovers being a pain to install inside a 2013 Ford Fiesta front doors. The Sub has been gone now for nearly 6 weeks for repair under warranty, but i am informed it will be back very soon. Apart from the long wait, Phil could not have been a better installer and person to get on with. He lives a fair distance away from...me and when i told him that my left front door wouldn't open from the inside, he knew exactly what he had done and offered to come back and fix it, but a friend if mine helped me with removing the door panel and we reconnected the mechanism. I have read some negative reports on here about Strathfield, but most of them are in the southern states and i am in Brisbane, but to be fair, apart from the long wait to get my Sub back, i can't complain too much. Phil even fixed the vibrations in my front doors from the Crossovers when he came back to take the Sub away for repairs. Maybe i got a good installer who knows what he is doing. If nothing else goes wrong, 4 stars. I'll post more after i get my Sub back.
Great service, very friendly.

Questions & Answers
I am about to exchange an existing Gps system in my Captive 7 Series 2 for an Alpine ILX-650E System.
Question 1 Do you sell this system?
2 Do you install?
3 If so can you give an approximate costing to both questions?
Thanks Ron Canfield
These guys are great fair and honest they will give you the best advice price and service and their work is perfect. I can’t say enough about how happy I was with my service from them
I am about to get an Audio upgrade from Strathfield in Brisbne on Monday. From what i've read on here about them, they don't rate too highly. Can anyone inform me of any problems or good features with the Brisbane business before i spend 1,600 bucks?
Can't speak for Brisbane as I'm not from there.
The guys here (SCR Sydney) are pretty good, but every car has it's issues especially new ones as car manufacturers don't consider after market installations as part of their build process.
My advice is to make sure you take pictures before and after of your car, and ensure that you have something in writing that clearly defines who will cover damages if any are caused. This way you can clearly demonstrate a problem (before and after) and have agreement at the outset on who is responsible.
Don't just get a hand shake and verbal commitment.
Also ensure that if you are having any leads from the batter run, that they use proper heat proof covering or run it behind the firewall covering in the engine bay, otherwise they wires melt and short out.
Look at Dynamat on the doors as well, not just the speaker area. Makes a big difference to acoustics, and keeps road noise out.. Even when no playing tunes.
Thanks Noah. Have had the job done and everything is ok. I hovered over the bloke and It took him 7 hours to do it, but he did use all the correct gauge shielded wiring, especially to the Sub. New speakers went back in where the original one's were, with a slight modification and had to drill a hole to mount each crossover because the panels wouldn't go back on. Had to pull the back seat out to run the Sub wiring through to the hatch, but a good professional job. You're right about after market. The only place he could fit the Speaker Amp was under the left front seat, which makes it awkward to get at it to set the levels but that's really no problem. Strange there should be so many bad reports, unless this bloke knew exactly what he was doing. Thanks for you're answer mate.
