Audio Repair Companies for New & Old Equipment
« on: 3 Feb 2011, 11:40 pm »
Fellow Tube-O-Philes,

This thread is for links to reputable repair companies.  Please add to the list if you have a favorite repair technician.  And, no, it does not matter if they repair tube or solid-state gear.

Here is my "short" list:
http://www.analogique.com/
http://www.austinstereo.com/service.html
http://www.circlestereo.com/
http://www.smcaudio.com/  McCormack gear a specialty, obviously.
http://www.vintageamprepair.net/  Specializing in Threshold and Forte
http://www.stereomanuals.com/  A resource for service manuals.
http://www.sound-smith.com/
http://www.stereorepair.net/index.htm
http://www.vintageaudio.com/
http://www.highendaudiorepair.com/
http://www.musictechnology.com/
http://www.sertechelectronics.com/

That should get things started.

Does anyone know who on these lists would be a good option for repair of "vintage" high end Levinson/Proceed CD transports?

You may need to do some "legwork" in that you might consider emailing two or three after reading their "about us" type webpage.  You might find someone by Googling "Levinson/Proceed CD transport repair".

I had a Melos preamp repaired by Ben Jacoby of High-End Audio Repair in NY. with excellent results.  I did a fair bit of searching to find him.

Hope this helps,
Jake

Edit:  rpf beat me to the punch and with a better answer!

Ditto for Alex. He can do tuner alignment, even rebuild Quad ESLs. I saw a R2R deck go in as pudding and come out like new, total ground up restoration. He does mail order repairs.

    He will ask you questions so as to determine what is the best way of going about what you are trying to accomplish.

I don't know if Scott works on CD transports. Doesn't have the equipment to do tuner alignments. I do know he is great with amps, speakers and general repairs though.

Oops...my bad, I assumed you knew he did that type of specifically.

Here are two links from the list above that have Levinson on their list plus fix transports:
http://www.stereorepair.net/index.htm
http://www.austinstereo.com/service.html

I'm certain there are more and maybe one close to you.

And thank you to those who added to the list!

Tubes = happiness for my self-designed Open Baffle speakers. But I need help... does anyone know of a really ethical tube amp repair shop in the Ventura or Santa Barbara area of California... I might even seriously consider Los Angeles (about 1.7 miles away). But I don't want to ship my Heathkit... too many things happen when it is in the hands of shippers.

I deeply appreciate any information that could help me to get my 1950's re-circuited Heathkit playing without occasional performance anomalies. Those EL 84's and my OB's make love happen together.

Thanks for any suggestions.

With Warmest Regards ~ Richard

  I will second that. Top notch in every respect. He tunes pianos as well. Sounds like a great combo to me.

I found a good one in Harrisburg, PA:

http://harrisburgradiolab.com/

They did a really nice job on my Harman Kardon F50x tuner and are going over my Sherwood S3000-V now. 
Fast turnaround, reasonable price, 90 Day Warranty, they've won my business.
