Can you quote on repairs without inspecting my equipment?

Not with repairs, there are too many unknowns until I’ve properly examined and tested your equipment. Servicing is somewhat different.

For example, if the platter of your turntable doesn’t spin, do you know which of the many possible causes is the reason with your deck? Careful examination and testing allow me to accurately assess what’s wrong and provide you with an informed repair cost estimate, rather than a guess.
