About WingfieldAudio.com

Our Story

WingfieldAudio.com is owned and operated by Stephanie Wingfield, a cellist in the Boston, MA area who loves to play classical music and jazz.

Stephanie's love of little recording gadgets started long ago, during a cello lesson with a wonderful teacher who answered "listen to yourself" when asked about the best way to improve.

Soon after that lesson, Stephanie bought the best cassette deck she could find and started listening to herself. The experience was enlightening to say the least. Her teacher was right!

That clunky old cassette deck was heavy and tricky to set up. It was thrilling whenever a recording actually turned out well...

Times have changed. Portable digital audio recorders are a lot smaller, lighter, and easier to use. They sound better too. A lot better. And we are hear to help you sort it all out!

Praise for Wingfield Audio

"Wingfield audio gives you everything you need to choose a portable recorder: Well-organized and clear comparisons between models, and, most importantly, real-life recordings. I ordered a Marantz PMD 620 from Wingfield Audio some months ago, and it's fantastic. Thanks, Wingfield." Dan, CO
"Thank you, Stephanie, for your advice on a recorder and the fast delivery!! My son is delighted with the Sony [PCM-D50]...says his sound is accurate and the playback is invaluable for daily use. The comparison chart and cello recordings on your website were also invaluable for evaluating the recorders... you're the gold standard in portable recorder knowledge!" Giney G., CO
"After deciding which recorder to get, I spent some time trying to decide from which site to purchase. Some with higher prices and some with lower. I just couldn't find a good reason to choose one over the other, but then I went back through some of the more helpful sites from my search for information on these recorders and found that you actually sell them. This, along with my feeling that too many sellers don't really know much about the items they sell, allowed me easily to choose from whom I should buy. Thank you for providing original data on these items rather than just copying the same old manufacturer's marketing text and specs like the other sellers." Michael K., CA
"Dear Stephanie, I want to thank you for this really fast service and the good information you provide. I will certainly think of Wingfield Audio first when I need more audio equipment." Juerg F., Switzerland
"Hi Stephanie, I'm blown away with the sound quality of the Zoom H2. It is easy to use and I've been recording my guitar, the sounds of nightfall in Kentucky, family conversations and church sermons. Thank you so much for the 'sound' advice." Steve F., KY
"Great personal service is something that you simply cannot value in dollars and cents and I do believe the overall value of the items you are sending along with the help you provided me in my decision process makes us both winners." Michael F., NJ
"A pleasure to be able to shop at a portal run in an intelligent and thoughtful way, which so closely supports my objective and outlook." David S., MA
"Thanks to your sound samples I could choose a recorder without any doubt." William R., United Kingdom
"Many thanks for a great service and courtesy. We will have no problem with this little beauty. It came just in time... my daugther is a violinist and has a concert this weekend." Jean-Michel I., RI
"Even a novice like me was able to easily figure out how to use [the Marantz PMD620], and its portability is miraculous. I recently played a piano concerto with a chamber orchestra, and was able to successfully record the rehearsals and then immediately plug in to my car's CD player and hear myself while driving home--a great learning tool. I've been able to use it with my students as well. Thank you for doing this job so well!"
Nan S., CO

"Hello Stephanie, I just returned from my trip where I needed the Zoom recorder and wanted to let you know that it worked wonderfully. Thank you so much for sending it out right away and thank you for your care and extremely helpful advice before I purchased it. Dealing with you has truly been a rare and exceptional experience and I just wanted to say 'thanks.'" John F., CA
