"How does the Ship survive 
In a 'big box' world?"

Established 1976

Wooden Ship Stereo has witnessed many big chains arrive with a big noise, and quietly disappear into retail history while the Ship remains afloat.  
The better question is "How can the 'big box' keep pace with The Ship?"

The Ship's Edge

               Ray Avalos established Wooden Ship Stereo with his brother in 1976.  Ray is a problem solver.  
               He asks the right questions and listens.  He then integrates your electronics into a better and easier
               to operate home theater or stereo audio system.   Ray has a track record that a 'big box' can't match.  

Ray's Associates 
          Ray is also part of an association of foothill professionals that can handle almost any consumer electronics issue.
          This group of professional independent businessmen knows what the 'big boxes' don't even know they don't know.  
          Yet they still offer their services at competitive prices.
