Regrettably, requests for advice and technical assistance (as opposed to new business enquiries) unaccompanied by donations are filtered to preserve my sanity. My sincere thanks to all who donate!
NOTE: We don't work on A/V, cinema, PA, home studio, portable, car audio, mini/midi/3-in-1/quadraphonic equipment, radiograms, stereograms, soundbars or musical instruments.
NOTE: The variable nature of equipment faults, condition, and our desire for accuracy mean we must assess your equipment before offering a diagnosis or estimate.
