For more information, please leave a brief message stating the nature of your inquiry, along with a telephone number where you can be contacted at the earliest convenience.

Please note, replies cannot be given to messages which do not include a contact number, as initial discussion is through dialogue before embarking upon new commissions. This saves time and proves more efficient in establishing the level of service sought as well as striking-up a more personal working relationship beforehand.

As a rule, most apparatus purchased will come with a guarantee from the manufacturer. Anything beyond this period of cover will be subject for examination by an approved agent in the service sector of the given product, be it television or audio. Whilst specialist services are used, there comes a point where most modern technologies have surpassed their usable life expectancies and as such, are best replaced.

For high fidelity equipment however, there is a different approach toward the more highly engineered sphere of quality components where servicing becomes a more realistic and viable proposition altogether; amplifier components replaced, turntable servicing and drive-belt replacements, cartridge fitting and alignment, stylus replacement, tone-arm balancing and so on.

If there is an issue with a much cherished piece of early hi-fi equipment that was rather good in it’s day, it may just require a service to return it to it’s former glory; often achieving a better sound performance than the new pretenders of hi-fi found on the high-street today.

All enquiries for hi fi repair will be handled with dedication and commitment from a specialist in the field.

Testimonials for Hi Fi Repair

“I have an American VAC PHI Beta integrated amplifier that required some attention. Carl accepted my cry for help and had the amp back to me within two weeks, all as good as the designer intended, and the invoice was very reasonable. If you are seeking an excellent audio engineer, then you should know that Carl offers a very personal and professional service. A conversation with him is both a pleasure and an education about any aspect of audio that is of interest. I have recommended him to my ‘audio-friends’ and have no hesitation in endorsing his reputation for excellence.”
