Ordering Returns and Warranty

Ordering

 

Place your order via either the online store, email or in person.

Stock

Stock levels depend on the brand and item type. For example standard ZMF headphones are kept in stock however customer configurations and Limited Editions are made to order and require a build time. See each individual products listing page for information on expected delivery timeframes, or email for any clarity.

Occasionally due to manufacturing, transport problems or other, delays, supply issues may occur. Whilst every effort will be made to ensure the estimated dates are met they do not form a fixed term of the contract of sale. We will endeavour to minimize any inconvenience should this happen and appreciate your patience.

Payment

Payment can be made by Credit Card, Bank Transfer or PayPal. Goods are not dispatched or may not be collected until funds are cleared.

Exchanges and Full Refunds

Exchanges and full refunds can be provided as per the statutory conditions of sale prescribed by the Trade Practices Act 1974 and corresponding State Fair Trading legislations in the case that the item is faulty, not fit for purpose or is different to the description or sample. See Warranty section below for more information. We want you to be happy with your purchase so do not hesitate to contact us if you are not 100% satisfied and we will help you to find a solution.

Conditions of Sale

All stock sold for domestic use only unless written specification is provided. Risk of these goods pass to the purchaser on possession. Title of items pass to the purchaser only upon receipt of full cleared payment.

Pricing Policy

Most audio products imported into Australia cost more than overseas. Indie Hi-Fi offers "Parity Pricing" for may of the products we sell. This means that you pay the same price for the item as the retail price in the country of origin plus GST and a small premium to cover transport and shipping. You receive full local warranty and support.

Refund and Cancellation Policy

We offer all the knowledge and service that we can to help you choose carefully, however, cancellations or returns of orders due to a change of mind will attract an administration fee equal to 25% of the order value. In the case of "Special Orders" this is 50% of the value of the order to cover restocking and administration expenses should you wish to receive a refund of the purchase price. "Special Orders" are those which we have imported specifically to fill your order. 

Indie Hi-Fi does not offer a "cooling off" period on orders, however, if your order has not yet been shipped and you wish to swap it for another item that we stock please contact us as soon as possible and we will do our best to arrange this for you if possible.

Warranty

In addition to the rights guaranteed by the relevant State and Federal laws, in particular the Trade Practices Act 1974 and corresponding State Fair Trading legislation, Indie Hi-Fi guarantees to the original purchaser to make good either by repair or replacement any defect caused by faulty parts or workmanship covered by the manufacturers guarantee or warranty (please refer to manufacturer's warranty card, booklet or tag).

This warranty is effective from the purchase date and upon presentation of original documentation i.e. receipts or tax invoice. This guarantee or warranty is provided if such defect is not the result of abuse, commercial use, or is the natural characteristic of the part used in manufacturing.

Guarantee or warranty is not transferrable. In most cases warranty claims will require inspection by our representative. Contact us to arrange this inspection. Transport, service and handling fees are the responsibility of the purchaser to and from our service point. 

Indie Hi-Fi advises customers to thoroughly read and understand both the care conditions provided by the manufacturer in your product packaging and the recommendations on our Product Care page.

Valve amplifiers are covered by a 2 year parts and labour warranty. The valves however have a shorter lifespan, and therefore a 3 month warranty. When valves fail it can sometimes cause some other components to fail such as a capacitor or resistor. These are not high value items and we do not charge for them, however we do charge for labour in effecting the repair out of warranty.
