Radique Inc. is an Ottawa, Ontario-based business specializing in the sale and service of quality stereo and home theater components.
We have over 1000 used and vintage audio components in stock, and also offer a selection of brand new gear from a growing list of respected brands including Marantz, Denon, Definitive Technology, and Polk Audio.
In 2020, we launched our own line, Radique Audio, in order to bring a range of audiophile quality cables and connectors to our customers without the audiophile pricing. We have since added several inexpensive but great sounding electronic components to our growing stable of audio products, and are excited at the synergies being developed between our different lines.
Radique’s business philosophy is very simple: We endeavour to treat each of our customers the way we would like to be treated. We never rush or pressure a purchase, we treat everyone the same, regardless of their budget, and we try to provide honest advice, even when it's less likely to lead to a sale. As a result, we’ve been blessed with a range of amazing customers, and we are incredibly thankful for their repeat business, referrals, and in many cases, friendship.
We work by appointment for our in-person customers, offer regular deliveries within the Quebec City - Windsor corridor, and also ship our carefully packaged products across Canada, the U.S. and around the world.

SAMPLE CABINET REFINISHING
As a small company, Radique’s Team members all wear a number of hats. It is not unusual for 3 or 4 of us to be working together building cables, or unloading a truck full of stereo equipment. Here’s the team:
Mark - Founder - Purchasing, Sales, Accounting
Mark was born in England, and grew up on the south shore of Montreal and later, east of Ottawa. After more than two decades of managing computer and IT companies, he has re-discovered his passion for business, combining his lifelong obsession with audio with his love of making people happy, one stereo at a time.
La-Donna - Co-Founder and VP - Product Processing, Testing, Sales
La-Donna was born in Jamaica, and raised in Ottawa, the daughter of Debbie, a hard working single mom. As a Co-Founder, she has played a critical role in the creation and growth of the business, employing her exceptional communication skills, customer empathy and diligence, while keeping us grounded with her realism and dry humour.
Lovina - Bookkeeping and Cable Assembly
Lovina immigrated to Canada from China in 2016 bringing with her a background in English and Accounting and an appreciation of technology inspired by her father, Yi, an accomplished electronics technician. Lovina is an expert cable builder, and also assists with Radique’s bookkeeping.
Kay - Inventory Control, Sales, Team Support
Kaidan, or Kay for short, is the nerdy brawn at Radique. They are generally the person you want to talk to if you want something done quickly AND with quality. A big fan of art and roleplaying games, with an endless desire to learn, Kay works hard to play hard.
Sarah - Office Manager, Sales, Post-Sale Follow-up
Sarah was born and raised in Ottawa. Third oldest of nine children, she learned the importance of a strong work ethic and communication.
