Just a very quick update to say WOW and thank you. A couple of days ago my website accrued its 200,000th page view!
It seems like only yesterday that I wrote about the Liquid Audio website hitting 100K views. I never really imagined that my site would generate so much interest, but I’m thrilled that it has.… Read more
I recently serviced a lovely Denon DP-30L direct-drive turntable and decided to spread the word a little about this great deck.
Denon’s DP-30L is an excellent turntable with great features like a quality motor, solid chassis and excellent speed-control circuitry. The DP-30L weighs in at just under 10kg, much more than today’s lightweight decks. This deck also has commendably low wow and flutter.… Read more
Just a short post here while I am in the middle of repairing / restoring an absolutely massive Marantz PM-8 integrated amplifier.
These main filter capacitors sit in the power supply and do all the ‘heavy lifting’ required to make the power supply smooth and quiet. All four 15,000uF capacitors have literally spewed their contents all over the insides of this beautiful amplifier.… Read more
I can hardly believe it but March has brought yet another milestone. This is the first time that my website has received 10 000 views in one month 🙂
Big thanks to everyone for stopping by and spending time reading my restoration, service, repair and review articles. This 10 000 views milestone is indicative of how popular my website has become, no doubt partly down to the great people come and spend time here.… Read more

Positive feedback like this from my customers makes me incredibly proud of the work I do.… Read more
A customer recently brought in his gorgeous matching Luxman M-4000A power amplifier and C-5000A preamplifier. Both pieces needed a thorough overhaul and the M-4000A needed repairs also.
The legendary Tim De Paravicini designed the original M-4000. The improved and even rarer Luxman M-4000A probably also came from De Paravicini’s hand, but nobody seems to know for sure.… Read more
It’s time I wrote a piece on the legendary Kenwood KD-500 / KD-550 direct-drive turntables. These classic direct-drive decks hail from an era when things were built to last.
Indeed, if decks like the KD-500 / KD-550 with this level of bespoke engineering were to be built now, they would cost many thousands of dollars. The Technics SL-1200 is a classic example – it’s been reissued and costs literally thousands!… Read more
