Forget the guy in the photo, how about that stunning Pioneer CT-F1250 cassette deck after repair and major service! “Mike, did you resurrect that CT-F1250, one of the greatest cassette decks of all time..?” Why do you think I look so happy?!

About Service & Repair

Amongst other things, Liquid Audio specialises in turntables, offering expert services and advice on turntables of all kinds. We also are heavily focused on amplifiers and CD players and are one of a select group of component-level repairers.

This approach requires one to find and then replace faulty transistors, diodes, capacitors and resistors. People are often told their equipment is beyond repair or that parts are no longer available. These are the most difficult repairs but this is the purest and most technically correct approach. This allows us to find and fix faults when original boards and parts are no longer available.

Rather than using cheap parts and doing sloppy work, we focus on meticulous attention to detail and best practice in everything from calibrated laboratory-grade test equipment to premium parts, synthetic lubricants and precision tools. Simply put, I fix equipment as though it were my own.

About Tools & Equipment

It’s not all about us – it helps to have the best tools and equipment. Really good tools, test and measurement equipment and service data are essential in this line of work. Cheap gear just doesn’t cut it.

We’ve just (Feb, 2022) purchased $2500 worth of state of the art soldering and desoldering equipment. Very nice!

Yes, that’s a heck of a lot of the finest classic test and measurement equipment available, acquired at great expense over many years. Hopefully, some of our points of difference are becoming clearer!

About Happy Customers

A business is nothing without happy customers and we are extremely fortunate to have an extraordinary customer base. Visit our Feedback and Facebook pages and you’ll get an idea of how our customers feel about the work we do.

We can’t make everyone happy, but we get very close and I promise that’s not easy. As I tell all my customers, your equipment will always come back you in better shape. Not everyone can make that claim.

Get in touch if you’d like us to work on your classic hi-fi equipment.
