Optimal Enchantment in Santa Monica and Upscale Audio in Upland., and...Magnolia in Santa Monica.
Upscale Audio usually has an ad in Stereophile and has a pretty wide selection of good stuff. They are a bit east of LA off of the I-10.
Optimal Enchantment is a place I have done business with for over 20 years and they have Vandersteen, Quad, Audio Research, Rotel, Ayre, etc. Highly recommended. On Santa Monica Blvd. east of 5th St. above the Radio Shack store.

Ambrosia Audio & Video in Bel Air I think went bust.
Hsu Research, one of the leading Internet direct subwoofer manufacturers, has their main office and show room in Orange County. If you need a sub, be sure to go their for a demo before buying any sub at another hifi store. Their subs are equal or better to traditional speaker company subs selling at twice the MSRP.
