Wonderful visit and 5-star customer service at Audio Doctor in Jersey City, NJ!

For those interested in auditioning the new Paradigm Persona series, as well as other high-end brands, with the benefit of highly personalized attention and 5-star customer service, I would like to recommend a visit to Audio Doctor in Jersey City, New Jersey- they have some of the largest showroom space in the NY/NJ area, and such great customer service, period!

Audio Doctor is currently the only dealer in the NY/NJ area allowed to demo in-store/sell the Paradigm Persona speaker series, so I trekked there yesterday to audition the Paradigm Persona 3F and flagship 9H stereo speakers, which both proved stupefying and extremely impressive for their price points in as far as clarity, detail, and sound stage are concerned.

The owner, Dave, is such a wonderful guy. He gave me a personalized tour of his well-built home theater room (100+ inch projector set up with KEF speaker system, excellent room treatments, very comfortable seating, etc.), and also a tour of other five-figure speaker brands on display.

Crucially, for the Paradigm demos, Dave allowed me to bring my own interconnects and speaker cables, and also to use identical separates to what I have at my place so I could ascertain for sure what the Paradigms would sound like in my home setting. I was also pleased to see many low-budget speaker/separates set ups for those on a tight budget- all on display.

Last but not least, Dave and his wife prepared a wonderful dinner for me while I was speaker-auditioning- the tastiest Mexican Tacos I have ever had! I spent a total of 4 hours at the store, and Dave even gave me a lift back to the PATH train station (I live in NYC)... so without a doubt, I would rate the customer service at this place as the best I have ever seen in my years of visiting audio stores on both coasts.

So for the NY/NJ area audiophile crowd, Audio Doctor merits an in-person visit and comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
My last point is that the experience of shopping for high end luxury goods needs to be just that, an experience.

Women and signifigent others needs to be brought into the stores and educated that high end audio can be a fun hobby for them as well.

Far too many stores especially in the New York metro area are all about closing the sale rather than finding out just what product or series of products is right for the client, for this reason Audio Doctor displays many different lines so we can find just the right product for that client.

I personally loved being given a glass of wine when I was in a famous New York high end clothing store and experience was fantastic.

Our store offers  extended hours from early morning appointments to late night ones. I remember working for a big NY store and I had to escort out a potental client for a $40k system because the store mananger was in a rock band and had to leave for a band practice. The customer never came back.

 When you are in this kind of business you need to treat your customers like friends and family members because that was what worked in old time retail sales it was about creating a relationship that transcended just the sales process.

For those that have been enlightened by this chat, so far...

I highly recommend a book...

"The Celestine Prophecy" (for heavy reading only).

It is possible to promote your store without trashing others. You posit that many dealers, especially in the NY Metro area, are all about closing the sale rather than finding out what is best for the client. You have made this self promoting assertion in other posts. To whom are you referring?
 For example, just in the past decade I have purchased items at Stereo Exchange, Innovative Audio, Audio Connection, High Water Sound, Lyric Hifi and many others, some of which did not survive the market crash. With rare exceptions, I have encountered knowledgeable owners and salespeople who care about the needs of the client. I have received many courtesies from all of the above including visits to my home, loaners of expensive gear to try in my system, insights into why a particular component might work well in my system and open ears to my suggestions of brands they may wish to carry. In addition, I have maintained personal friendships with the owners of all of the above.  
On the other hand, I did not receive the same courtesies from Dave Lalin. The few times I have encountered him, he seems to have been more interested in making a sale of what he claimed to be the best product for me--without actually determining what my needs were. 
So--promote your dealership as you are wish, but leave the integrity of other NY Metro dealers out of your comparisons. Many, including those mentioned above, have integrity in spades.  All of them have been in business longer than Audio Doctor for a reason.
My vote for Robert Spence at affirm audio in Plano Texas. Great guy and great customer service!
