Made a first trip to the PS outlet last week, and contrary to what alot experienced, I wasn't impressed by their service.

 

Went in to take a look at nuforce icon mobile (that is on their website) and ibasso t4 for use with iphone.

 

While browsing through the display racks, a chap came up to ask if he could help (nice service I was thinking), and told him of my intentions.

 

To my surprise, he gave me a blur look when he heard the icon mobile, saying that they dun have and even doubted the existence of the product. When I further mentioned that it was on their website, he gave me this incredulous look and say that I must be mistaken.

 

Nevermind fine, since I had previously tried the nuforce at Audioiconic, I'll just try the ibasso T4 and make a comparison from memory. After a quick setup, he left me to my own devices, which I thought was cool, some freedom to test songs.

 

When i pressed play on the phone, big mistake, should have checked the volume control beforehand. It was on at max. After some struggling and asking how to lower the volume, he non-chalantly came over and adjusted the dial. Felt that having served customers daily, he would at least be experienced to have lowered the volume to an minimal/acceptable level first, and let customers adjust to their comfortable listening leve. But oh well, maybe honest mistake?

 

During the auditioning, the T4 appears to be very susceptible to RFI, getting static chatter frequently. When queried, all he offered was "all portable amps are like that one". Duh. No alternative, no recommendation, no nothing. Just brushed off.

 

When over and asked if I liked it, I told him I preferred the nuforce. At least there was no RFI. He still gave me that incredulous look of "got such product meh".

 

And that's that. No otherwise attempt for alternatives, no nothing. Took another browse at the racks and left. Maybe my expectations were too high after reading all the good comments on Stereo, but this experienced really left much to be desired to me.

not for that visit, but probably will still go down. There are only so few shops that specialises in portable audio locally.

@ etnt

 

I know there's a few new staffs there who are quite inexperience. Do give them some time to pick up. Anything problem just go straight to the boss. :grin:

 

At least you're being served while recently I was brushed off by the other shop like a little kid who can't afford. Don't even apologize and ignore their mistakes. :bash:

I always believe that relationship with shops are hit-and-miss scenarios. Either you can strike a rapport or can't, irregardless of how well a shop is rated, online or by word of mouth. Perhaps it's juz fate for the first encounter to turn out as such.

 

Will be heading down again when the need arises, and hopefully it'll more of a hit rather than miss again.
