FULL SERVICE REPAIR
We know your treasured vintage audio or video equipment means a lot to you, and you probably already know how difficult it is to find someone who truly knows how to repair it. Because “repair” doesn’t mean just fixing a problem. Vintage gear never has just one, simple problem. Never.
Age, design issues, component defects and characteristics all factor into the reliability and quality of any repair. It’s not enough to know electronic theory and be able to read a schematic. A true and long-lasting repair requires knowing the unit, inside and out. How it works, what tends to go wrong with it, what will probably go wrong with it later, how to deal with repairs that require parts which are no longer available, all involve institutional and accumulated knowledge that is not widely available.
Sometimes, a repair requires the ability to correctly substitute, or in some cases, invent and fabricate a part.
Another factor is the music or video itself. It’s not enough for a unit to meet its published specifications. The question is, does it make music? Because many times, a unit can be “up to spec” and yet still sound awful. And that’s something no one wants, so I never simply “fix” a unit and move it along. Every repair includes a full audition and evaluation, and if it doesn’t make music, it’s not fixed.
Send your treasured audio or video unit to the experts who care about you, your unit and the music it’s supposed to make. You’ll be glad you did!
