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 serviced.
I have now reached retirement age and I have greatly reduced my workload. Part of this decision is brought about by the fact that some older equipment is becoming difficult to viably repair. In some cases an item can have a multitude of faults. In these cases I end up working for many hours with little reward.
This decision has been exceedingly difficult as I am sure most would appreciate. My 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 10 years ago.
Due to my limited time, priority will be given to those I have done work for previously.
I sincerely regret the inconvenience to those that I will not be able to assist.
As I said, this has been a very difficult decision. I appreciate your understanding.
