Customer Kudos "zZounds is great! After looking for Pro DJ speakers I came across zZounds on the internet and they financed me with the no credit check money down 4 month payment plan, which really helped me out a lot. They are the greatest to buy audio equipment online. They have low prices that are compatible with other online sites and didn’t charge me interest. I highly recommend them. I will be doing all my online audio purchases with them from here on out." - Customer on November 30, 2018
