Hey, I just want to give a little props and credit where due. I have had a couple of positive experiences with them recently and I want everyone in the area to know about it. Brian the owner of Liquid trends is a very cool guy, very helpful and generous. He earned my repeat business. First point, he is as knowledgable as any expert on this sight, I will let others vouch for that, as I am sure there are many who will. Secondly, he is honest, which is the most inportant in my book. Thirdly, I was quite happy with his prices. And lastly, he stands behind his work. Seriously, when I find business like this, I will continue to use them and tell as many people about them as possible. If you need stereo help/work and are willing to drive to Modesto, you will not be disappointed.
Here is an example: I had Brian upgrade my system this winter, the results sounded great and I was satisfied with the price( I got Arc audio gear with warrenty: nice) I took my boat out for the first time this past weekend (the weather in cali has been terrible, I am a warm water fan, hense the late first trip) and the stereo would not turn on. It sucked, but it was just me and the wife, so not a big deal. I took my boat back to Brian the other day, he quickly determined my problem (which was not of his doing) and fixed it, free of charge. I had something wrong with the power lead on my deck, he installed a 'by-pass switch" and it works like a charm. Here is the honesty part, he could have told me my deck was shot, I would not have known, I would have bought one on the spot.
And the kicker, of the day was, I was on my way to the lake to change out my bunk rails on my trailer, as we were talking about how I was going to do this, He offered my a tool that would have sped up the job. I had to decline, because I had no idea if I would be back in the area in an acceptable time to return it.
I hope other customers will chime in here as well. I think we are all the same, we want to feel good about the money we spend and whom we spend it.
