Not many people nowadays would know how to fix your favourite amp but he certainly can.
- Paul Barry (Journalist), 09/11/2011
Your latest help and attention to detail is no exception and even though it may be a bit of a cliché may I say "well done". And thanks.

Robin's service has been and still is simply outstanding. He is an honest and straight to the point kind of person.

I would encourage anyone considering to repair their hifi equipment to go to Dr Hifi.
- James Capewell (Interior Designer), 01/05/2013
Audio engineers in servicing of quality hifi equipment, domestic and professional. Dr. Hi Fi has specialised in service and repairs to hi fi equipment since 1976. Robin Gandevia MInstSCE (Eng.) MTETIA) has vast experience and knowledge that is unique in the industry and his reputation is undoubted.
I have serviced quality hi fi equipment (professional and domestic) for c. 45 years. Often what I have repaired in the last 10 years is what I started to repair in the late 1970's This is because it is quality equipment built to last. Modern equipment is rarely built to be even serviced.
Having reached retirement age, I have significantly reduced my workload. One reason was the fact that some of the older equipment, wonderfully built as it was, is becoming difficult to viably repair as in some cases it can have a multitude of faults. In these cases I end up working for many hours with little reward.
Due to my limited availability, priority is given to old clients. A great regret is that I cannot recommend anyone for people to go to; I am of a dying breed. 20+ years ago my mentor died and another with whom I held great respect pulled the plug over after the GFC.
I will only work on equipment that I think is worth repairing where everyone will get a satisfactory result. May I detail equipment I do not work on...
- Audio Visual Receivers (AVR)
- Speakers, including Sub woofers (powered or not)
- Equipment that is less than 10 years old (except turntables)
My main work premises are at a friend’s, someone I have been teaching for a number of years. In March 2020 I took a new office in North Sydney where equipment can be dropped off and collected but I stress this is by appointment only after emailing me to see if I can assist you.
With best wishes,
