Purveyors of Electronic, Musical and Vintage goods from then, now and in between. 
Since 1982.



With the exception of the new merchandise offered on the site, most of this stuff is old. A lot older than many of us. Their warranties ran out a long time ago, some before we were born. We will always try to do our best at representing an item to the best of our abilities. We will go out of our way to avoid any conflicts. They're just no fun. 
Unless otherwise implied we cannot however, offer any warranties unless other wise implied by this symbol,
CheckMarkSmall_web.jpg (792 bytes)  or pre-arranged. 

PS. MOST of our  refurbished merchandise DOES include the above warranty 'Check Mark' and will be indicated so :-)

CheckMarkSmall_web.jpg (792 bytes)  This symbol signifies that this item has a 90 day limited warranty either from us or the original manufacture and will  perform as stated in the listing text. Some NEW items may have a different manufacture warranty period.

Crosley products for example have a 1 year manufactures warranty. While we do ship most products World-Wide / Internationally, the stated warranties for all products are applicable for North American sales only, due to AC power differences and shipping logistics. There are some exceptions to the 90 day warranty, indicated by "
** ". These units may carry a 30 day limited warranty.

If you have an issue with any item, contact us immediately, and absolutely prior to shipping it.

If item fails to perform as stated it may be able to be returned for repair or credit / replacement towards another item at Oak Tree's option. Items must have prior authorization before returning. Warranty will not cover cosmetic damage, breakage, transit damage, mis-use, abuse or actions out of the control of the user, seller or manufacturer such as flood, fire, lightning or other mishap.

Items submitted for return will be shipped at buyers expense and shall be packaged for safe arrival, carrying full value insurance. Repairs will be handled ASAP, but due to various influences can take 90 days or longer to rectify, especially if parts or schematics must be obtained or due to backorder situations. Retain all original packing in case return is necessary (also handy for future shipments / moving).
Repair and return shipping time does not count against the original 90 day warranty period of our in-house warranty. It will be extended to it's full 90 days adding in any "down time". If the unit cannot be repaired, then another unit can be substituted if available. If no comparable unit is a suitable substitute (as determined by purchaser AND Oak Tree Enterprises), then a company credit or refund can be requested.

Items not displaying this symbol CheckMarkSmall_web.jpg (792 bytes) have the guarantee to be "as represented" at time of sale. Different manufacturers handle
their warranty policies differently and we must abide by their policies. 

Either of the above warranties are to cover and be applicable only to the actual unit purchased and does not cover any accessories used with or connected to defective unit in any way. This is to include damage caused by or related to unit in question ie: eaten tapes & films, scratched records / CD's / DVD's, damaged speakers, blown tubes or any other damage or destruction of property or life. The obligations / responsibilities of our warranties are limited only to the direct remedies mentioned above and do not extend to any items consequentially purchased based on current or future uses of items purchased from us.

This includes physical damages to additional items, or costs incurred in said purchases.

* Used CD / DVD players carry a 30 day limited warranty due to unknown condition of the laser and / or laser alignment.

* Tubes carry a 10 day warranty, barring physical damage which is not covered.

* Internal lamps, bulbs and indicators not covered by any warranty.

* Mechanical Tape Counters on 8-Tracks and Reel to Reels (especially some "8-Track decks") are having a common issue with one of the plastic / nylon gears gears cracking. It's the main drive gear that's around a steel shaft. At this point most of them are 35-45 years old and the gear often shrinks on it's steel axel. As the plastic / nylon gear shrinks, stress builds. The stress of the plastic gear get's relieved by cracking between two of the teeth. Once this happens, the newly increased distance between those two teeth (only a fraction of a mm) prevent it from meshing with the adjacent gear and the counter will now lock up and not move when the gear rotates to the point of the teeth with a crack in between. Short of trying to find a "still working" counter from another unit, there isn't a practical 'fix' for this that we're aware of. As it seems to happen already to about 50% of the units, a counter that is currently "working" is likely only working because the gear has not cracked 'YET'. It most likely will. Could be 30 minutes or 30 years, but they ALL WILL crack, and thus not covered by any warranty.

* 'Existing Cartridges' on 'Used / Second-hand' / Vintage Turntables have a 10 day warranty. Physical damage to stylus or cantilever of cartridge or lead wires is not warranted.

* Speakers are not warranted against burned voice coils, or blown crossover capacitors. This will almost always be due to 'clipping an amplifier' due to 'pushing and under-powered amplifier too hard', faulty amplifiers producing too much 'DC offset', or overpowering with too much current.

* Outputs of amplifiers / receivers / radios are not warranted against blown transistors due to shorted terminals / speaker wires or speakers or due to connecting to speakers or loads below their design minimums or beyond their design maximums (example; loading an amplifier / receiver with 'too many' speakers, going below the minimum overall load impedance, pushing an amplifier much beyond approx '1:00 O'Clock' on the volume control (beyond 55%), playing for exceedingly loud / high volumes for extended periods of time (going beyond a unit's 'duty cycle'), playing too loudly for too long even with the correct / minimum speaker impedance not being exceeded.
We and most techs are able to tell if a unit was 'raced' beyond it's design parameters (think; trying to pull a 45' Cabin Cruiser boat,...with a Chevy S-10,...up a mountain pass,...while 'trying' to maintain 60mph,...in a head wind. To do that correctly / safely, you; should have bought a bigger truck, need to go slower, purchase a 'smaller boat' or some combination of the above. Another example would be trying to 'street race' with your new, 'stock' Toyota Corolla. It 'might' do it for a little while, and it 'might' even do it a few times, but that's WAY beyond it's intended design parameters, and sooner or later (probably sooner) something is going to 'break'. Those are generally 'common sense' issues that would not be covered by any type of warranty.

* Damage caused to speakers, headphones, ears, hearing, 'neighborhood complaints, etc, or any other 'extraneous entity' as a result of utilizing a unit purchased from Oak Tree Enterprises, LLC, is not covered in any way. Our warranty extends only to the actual unit purchased.

* Damage caused to tapes, records, or any other 'media' as a result of utilizing a unit such as a 'Tape Deck', CD Player, VCR, Film Projector, Turntable etc with said media is not covered in any way. Our warranty relief extends only to the actual unit purchased.

Once an item has been shipped it becomes the buyers property and responsibility. 

The bottom line is that if you have an issue we’re here to ‘Make things right’. It is VERY rare that we have a ‘real warranty’ issue (something that requires help and assistance beyond what can’t be correctly resolved over the phone, but in the ‘probably less than a dozen instances’ over the past 2 and a half decades that there’s been a real ‘warranty issue’ (couldn’t be resolved over the phone) we’ve got the unit back, resolved and turned around as straight away as practical.

Canceling an Order prior to shipment: A transaction can be stopped if called in before the close of business on the same day the order was placed with no penalties / restocking fees and IF item has NOT already shipped (some drop ship products are processed and shipped quickly). We will promptly refund / re-route your funds back to you. Beyond the close of the original order days business and / or before the item is packed or shipped, there is a 10% cancellation / restock charge.

Your funds will be refunded, via a company check,
or credit card refund in the case of credit card purchases, the full amount, less the 10%. This will of course follow the time allowed for clearance of the original funds if check or similar instrument (ie: not a credit card purchase) was used.  Once an item has been packed and / or shipped there is a 20%-30% restocking fee (depending on distributor or 'drop shipper that the product originates from).

(Aluminum Christmas Trees, Color Wheels and Seasonal Items subject to a 30% re-sto
ck fee). Trees and Color Wheels cannot be returned for refunds or credit after Dec 1st.  Prior to that, tree and color wheel returns subject to 30% restock fee.

Shipping is not refundable.  After Dec 1st, trees and color wheels may only be returned for defective warranty replacements and replacement parts, on the rare occasion a part should go bad.
No Packing & Shipping charges are refundable and 'return' shipping is the responsibility of the purchaser.

Shipping Damage: Any item sustaining damage in shipping and requiring relief for the entire or partial purchase price is subject to the discretion of the shipping company used via the transit insurance purchased, and abiding by each shipping companies rules and regulations. If relief is through Oak Tree Enterprises, LLC., and not directly from the shipper to the end purchaser / user it is after such relief from the shipper has been issued to us (Oak Tree Enterprises, LLC.). (PS: I'm probably 'jinxing' our record by stating this, but in 24 years, and probably 20,000 shipped units, we've had 3-4 units damaged, and in each case the damage was minor. We've only had 3 'lost' packages, and one had the wrong 'suite number' in NY, one was shipped to the purchasers 'old address', and one was shipped to an address in a city in India that had a line in it that read, "small shed, to left of building that's behind train station". We've had a couple dozen that have take up to 2 years to be delivered or to finally make their way back to us (almost all were to addresses to Mexico, South or Central America, South Asia, South Africa or India).

Antler Lighting Products: Due to the custom made aspects of the antler products, once an order has been placed and materials ordered for construction, no refunds of any part of their cost may be refunded. This includes initial deposits. If there is an issue or required change or future damage, we can work with the artists to rectify those issues to practical degrees and for nominal charges.

RETURNS / CREDIT MEMOS / REFUNDS: No returns without prior authorization. Returns will  be accepted (excluding the above caveats) if buyer contacts us WITHIN 14 DAYS OF RECEIPT of merchandise to inform us of the problem, and that buyer will be returning item(s) for exchange / credit / repair / refund. Refunds subject to a 20%-30% (depending on distributor or 'drop shipper that the product originates from) restocking fee in addition to the packing / shipping charges both ways. 'Unique' / salvage parts / spares are not returnable / refundable (unless we blatantly mis-represented a part as 'guaranteed functioning' or 'warranted' in some way. Then our liability extends up and only to the value charged by us for the initial purchase of the part. We are not liable, nor financially responsible for any additional labor / outside service / additional parts / additionally required purchases (perceived or real) or further commitments based on the use / intended use / of said part.

Packing & Shipping charges are not refundable. Refunds are only available if the item cannot be repaired / replaced / exchanged and at the discretion of Oak Tree Enterprises, LLC.
There is no fee if merchandise is exchanged for another item of the same or higher value, nor if a unit cannot be repaired or replaced with same or similar unit. Also, any 'import duties', taxes, delivery fees, COD fees, 'underage' fees etc are not in any way the responsibility of Oak Tree Enterprises, LLC. , and are in no way recoverable through Oak Tree Enterprises, LLC. via refunds / credits / exchanges etc.

Buyer is responsible for all 'insured' shipping charges, both back to us and return (or distributor in the case of Crosley, DecoBreeze and Yuletide), and proper packing to insure the items safe return to Oak Tree Enterprises, LLC.  or otherwise designated manufacturer.

In the case of an item being returned for exchange when defective the return charges will be credited back by Oak Tree Enterprises, LLC. not to exceed original ground  shipping and insurance charges less the portion that was packing (packing charges not refundable, as those materials should be kept by the purchaser and re-used)Expedited shipping (ie; Overnight, 2-Day, 3-Day, etc. charges that would be over and above normal ground charges are not refundable for any reason, except when the carrier guarantees it by a given date / time and it doesn't arrive by that date / time. Packing & Insurance charge portion of the expedited shipping charge are not refundable, nor a part of the carrier guarantee).  Untimely deliver, due to shipper shortcomings are not a reason for a full refund / return / disputed charges / package refusal, only and potentially for the carrier charges. Carrier charges do not include  the packing / handling charges charged by Oak Tree Enterprises, LLC. These are a part of the product cost.

Packing / crating charges not refundable as you should already have the packing
materials from original receipt of the merchandise.

     Photos shown on site may be of previous, representative unit. We will generally photo and emphasize any substantial deviation in condition, better or worse, as well as mention deviations in the listing text. Due to the amount of time it requires to produce photos of the level of quality we demand, there is valid reason for archiving our photos and to re-use them. Our photos will show an above average unit. If the unit has substantial scratches, scuffs, dings, missing / broken parts, or if there is a commonly assumed issue that one of our units does not display, those issues will be shot and posted in a separate photo collage. Issue photos will also be shot and posted if the unit is exceptionally above average in condition and / or includes extra or original accessories such as original box and packing or remotes, etc.

                 Not every piece of gear will conveniently fit into one category. Where necessary and / or practical an item may be "rounded" up or down to best suit it. Adjectives used in the descriptions of items such as good, excellent, killer, clean, well, perfect, spotless, original, best, OK, dirty, scratched, pitted, dented, small, big, cracked, stained or any other adjectives used to try and accurately describe an item are based on many years of experience. It is educated personal opinion. If you do not feel an item was represented accurately please contact us immediately (within 48 hours of receipt) and we will try to rectify the problem satisfactorily for both of us.
