Amongst my many talents is servicing and restoring classic and vintage audio as there now is a call for this equipment needing to be serviced.¬† Pioneer and Sansui are two of my favorites (since I collect both of these brands) but will service any other Make or Model from this “Golden Era” such as Kenwood, Yamaha, Luxman, Sony, Marantz, Accuphase, Rotel, Hitachi, Quad, Leak, Rogers, Arcam, Cambridge, Musical Fidelity plus more…. and as I have a love for this classic timeless retro audio equipment, I enjoy ‘Bringing Old HiFi Back To Life’. Your equipment can be anything from the 1960’s/1970’s/1980’s/1990’s period – Transistor or Valve/Tube – its not a problem for the Audio Doctor.

I also do the Onkyo/Integra HDMI board replacement extended warranty service through Avalon Audio so if you have a unit that is displaying the symptoms of No Sound/Network & USB Issues or HDMI switching/handshake problems then get in touch with Avalon Audio and they will guide you through the Warranty Claim process.
