Moreover, the purchase cannot be completed for products that are out of stock, unless for those products where is expressly indicated the number of waiting days prior to the shipping.
All products displayed on www.playstereo.com are for illustrative purposes only and available only whilst stocks last.

All drawings, photos, descriptive matter, technical specifications and advertising issued on this website and any photos or listings contained in PlayStereo catalogues or brochures are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the products described in them and they will not form part of the contract with you.
You can purchase our products through our online checkout process or by email, or by telephone. Please refer to the Telephone Sales section below for the numbers.
Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us through our website. Our order process allows you to check and amend your order before submitting it to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each stage of the process. After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted by us and we reserve the right at all times and at our sole discretion to refuse to accept any orders. We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the order has gone through processing. The contract between us will only be formed when we send you this email confirmation. If we are unable to supply you with a product, we will inform you by e-mail and we will not process your order and we immediately refund you the relative paid amount.
Prices quoted include VAT at 22% (Italian Tax) and are subject to change if the applicable rate of VAT changes before your order is accepted.
If your delivery address is outside of EU, we suggest you to register and login and insert your shipping informations - This way you will be able to see prices VAT free, the ones that effectively will be applied in case of order. Infact, products that are to be delivered outside of the European Union will have a VAT deduction applied within the checkout when a valid non-EU delivery address is entered, and your package will be sent DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid). Your order may then be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches its destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount. You will be responsible for paying any such local sales tax or import duties arising at the delivery destination, as these are not included in the price of the products. Import duty or tax costs will be invoiced directly to you from the courier or an import broker. We recommend you contact your local customs authority to determine a landed cost price prior to placing your order.
If your delivery address is a European Union country and you are purchasing as a private, you see prices ( any currency shown) taxes included and no additional tax/custom fee will apply.
If you are a firm or a business man with a VAT No. resident in any European Union country (Italy excepted), you may register as a firm, inserting your European VAT No. This way, the VAT free prices will be shown to you and you can purchase VAT free; a regular commercial invoice will be sent to you for intraCommunity purchases and for the “reverse-charge” VAT mechanism. Please see instructions.
NON-EU Customer: you are welcome -- please contact us for any customs matter before the purchase or prior to the shipping.
All prices for our products exclude postage and packaging, which will be charged at the rates advised to you during the checkout process before you confirm your order. To verify how much the shipping cost is, please add the product(s) to the basket and begin the checkout process; in the Shipping section of the Checkout, after selected the destination address, you will be shown the shipping fee for any available carrier/shipping method.
Despite our best efforts, it is possible that some of the products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the products you have ordered we will contact you to let you know. You then have the option of continuing with the purchase at the correct price or to cancel the order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we haven’t been able to contact you using the details you provided during the order process, then we will treat the order as cancelled and let you know in writing. Your payment shall not be deemed to have been received by us when we have received payment in cleared funds.
If you exercise a right to cancel your order but the products have already been dispatched, please follow the Returns Procedure set out below Returns and Exchanges.

You can buy an e-voucher from us by following the instructions on the website and once your payment has cleared, the e-voucher will be sent to the recipient’s email address that you set out in your order. The recipient will be responsible for its safekeeping and proper use. From time to time e-vouchers can get caught up in spam filters, and the recipient should make sure they check these filters.
We cannot be held responsible for any e-voucher which is emailed to an incorrect address that you supplied, or which is lost, stolen or deleted. We also cannot take responsibility for e-vouchers that cannot be delivered to the recipient’s email address because of spam filters, firewalls or other security measures operating on their system, capacity of their mailbox or any other factors outside our control.
The e-voucher will contain a voucher code and the recipient will be required to register an account at www.playstereo.com so that they can redeem the e-voucher as stored credit. They can view the balance when they log into their account, and when submitting an order they will be given the option to redeem the stored credit at checkout. The recipient can spend above the stored credit value using their debit/credit card or PayPal to pay the difference, or spend less, in which case the remaining stored credit will stay on their account for future use.
Orders paid for with stored credit that are subsequently returned or cancelled will be refunded as stored credit.
We reserve the right not to accept stored credit in payment or part payment for any products where we reasonably suspect that the original e-voucher or any amount on it may have been stolen, re-sold or otherwise misappropriated or if we suspect any fraudulent use or attempted use.
