As an apprentice I was always given the car radios and record players to repair as no one else wanted to do them. Being a Hi-Fi fan anyway I wasn’t bothered and enjoyed the work. Nowadays, as televisions become more and more disposable I find myself doing more Hi-Fi repairs as people, like myself, will treasure an old piece of audio equipment far more than their tv’s. It’s a nice feeling bringing an old amplifier or turntable back to life, in the last couple of years I have repaired all sorts from an old Arcam amp that needed the function selector stripped and cleaned to a vintage Pioneer that had gone down on one channel and needed new output transistors, it came in with it’s matching tuner which needed new lamps in the display. I seem to have had a glut of Sharp VZ-3000’s recently, they are vertical turntable combined with tape and tuner and seem to be appreciating in value due their quirkiness and their fast approaching vintage status.
As well as repairs I’ve refurbished a couple of Bang and Olufsen turntables and a beocentre, a combined turntable, tape deck and tuner. I occasionally have some of these items for sale which I will add to a ‘for sale’ page elsewhere on the website.
I have received Hi-Fi for repair from all over the country and even a couple from France and Spain, so if something needs to be posted to me drop me a quick email and we can discuss options.
