  • Upon bringing in any repairs there will be an initial inspection charge of $60.00 (incl GST) per unit payable up front. From there an estimated cost will be given to repair it. This also covers time spent looking at and diagnosing the faulty unit. The $60.00 is also deducted from the repair total at the end.  Eftpos or Cash is fine.

Please note – If any equipment is brought in with its top cover off, or has been interfered in some way will not be taken in as a repair.

Among 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/Sansui/Kenwood are some of my favorites (since I collect these brands) but will service any other brand such as –  Kenwood, Yamaha, Luxman, Sony, Marantz, Accuphase, Rotel, Hitachi, Quad, Leak, Rogers, Arcam, Cambridge, Musical Fidelity plus more…. and as I have a passion for classic 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/2000’s and onwards.

The massive influx of poorly constructed, mass produced amplifiers in recent years, has seen huge volumes of electronic components end up in the land fills. Nothing says more about the quality of the construction than “It’s cheaper to throw away and replace than spend the time to repair”.

As a result of this, finding good quality repair services for cherished vintage amplifiers has been difficult.  Until now – This is where I step in to keep that good quality older equipment from ending up being thrown away.

I have a fully setup and well equipped workshop with all the tools and test equipment to properly diagnose and repair or overhaul your unit.

My interest in this field since has been a life long interest since I was young so you can be rest assured that your repair is in the right hands. Click on the ‘Supported Brands ‘ to see the many models I can service for you. If you have something that’s not on the list then feel free to contact me.

For any other general questions about something that needs fixing all my details can be found by clicking on the ‘Contact’ Tab.
