Product Compatibility and Defective Products

Audio46 will not be held liable for incompatibility of DACs and amps with Android, IOS, or Windows operating systems. Here at Audio46, we simply cannot test every DAC and every amp with every operating system. It is the customer’s responsibility to contact the manufacturer regarding compatibility with their devices.

If you believe that you have received a defective product, please contact our support team. We will respond quickly with assistance or provide you with a return authorization (RA) number. If we determine the unit failed under warranty within 30 days of purchase, we will cover shipping costs within the U.S. to replace the unit for you.

All returns must include an RMA number.  Please send us an email or call us detailing the reason for the return, and we will issue an RMA number.  Returns missing RMA numbers may be delayed or refused.

International Returns

Products shipped internationally are still eligible for returns. Please note that any customs fees and taxes that were associated with your package may be non-refundable in the event of a return.  International duties are only refundable at the discretion of the country receiving the package. Audio 46 has no control of these costs and therefore has no ability to refund them.

Refusal to Pay Customs

In the event that a customer wishes to not pay the customs fees associated with their package, it will be returned to Audio46 by their country. Any shipping costs will be on the burden of the customer. If the customer received free shipping, the shipping cost for both trips will be deducted from their refunded amount.

Please note: Some countries will require that customs be paid for even if the package never leaves customs. Refusal to pay customs fees in these countries, will result in the fees and any shipping costs to be deducted from your refunded amount. In the event that your fees exceed the purchase price, Audio46 reserves the right to bill you for the difference.


In-store Purchases

All in-store purchases made will be able to be returned via the postal service, however the consumer must pay ALL freight costs. The same applies for exchanges. If you wish to return/exchange an item this way, you must receive written or verbal confirmation before sending the item back to us.
