"I knew of Hi-Tech over the years but had not done any business with you. I was attracted by your Pre-Owned PM1D product and talked with Louis at some shows I attended. When I got the green light to go ahead with a sound upgrade project here at Sunset Christian Center, I contacted Louis and... Hi-Tech provided prompt response to questions that arose during final design. Hi-Tech handled all outsourcing needed for elements of the installation and then executed the installation in a timely fashion. The training was perfect and our first Sunday using the new system came off without any major problems. Since the completion of the project, Hi-Tech has been very helpful with any follow up requests and I always consider Hi-Tech for any future projects that they could service."

HTA Certified Pre-Owned Console Systems

Program Benefits

Hi-Tech Audio takes pride in delivering our HTA Certified Pre-Owned console systems to you with as close to the same factory-new condition that we received them in. As part of that commitment we conduct an extensive test program to identify, isolate and fix any problems or potential problems with any of our used consoles. For example, as a stocking/serving Yamaha PM1D dealer we own specialized testing equipment and are trained to perform most of the same tests that are run by Yamaha at their Yamaha USA service facility in Buena Park, CA.

As evidence of our quality-commitment to our HTA CPO customers Hi-Tech Audio will provide a six month warranty from date of invoice identical to that offered by the respective console manufacturer unless otherwise agreed upon. In addition we will due our best to help our customers arrange replacement equipment for their needs if necessary. Our extensive rental inventory of mixing consoles allows us to help you in ways that other vendors cannot.

Certification Specifications

Not every used console can be a HTA Certified Pre-Owned console. First, Hi-Tech Audio has to have owned the console from when it was first delivered from the manufacturer. If we haven't owned it since it was new out-of-the-box then the console cannot be a HTA Certified Pre-Owned console. This makes it very clear that we have a complete history of the console's maintenance and upkeep. Second, it has to pass an extensive quality examination designed and performed by manufacturer-trained electricians and engineers. If the used console has any problems after this examination then the problems will be fixed. It they can not be fixed then the console cannot be a HTA Certified Pre-Owned console.

CPO Examination includes:

  • Cosmetic Appearance
  • Hardware Integrity
  • Audio Functions
  • Audio Quality
  • User Interface
  • Computer Diagnostics
  • Software Version
