    Thumbs up Economically viable amplifier repairs?

    Hi there

    My other hobby has been HiFi for quite some time and I've ended up with a number of amps that have 'seen better days' including 3 valve based amps. They are really just taking up space now, I have a perfect setup (to my ears) and I'm looking for somewhere economical in (ideally) the West London region to tackle the repairs so I can move them on

    I do have a local ish hifi shop that does repairs but my local doesn't want to deal any more and I have a feeling this would be an expensive option given some of the amps are in the multiple hundred pound bracket.

    Any ideas for how to get this stuff fixed on a tight current budget?

    Thanks muchly

    Re: Economically viable amplifier repairs?

    Depends on the make and model... Ive worked on a few valve amps, but if its not my thing then there is Lee in Peterborough, or Sally Ann and Richard Snow in Brighton, or Colin in Kettering.

    I can link you up with these, but let me know what the kit is first

    Cheers, David
