Liquid Audio offers some of the finest turntable repairs and service, right here in Perth, Western Australia. Direct-drive, belt-drive and rim-drive decks are welcome. I treat every piece of equipment with the same skill and expertise.

A suite of premium test and measurement instruments plus many years’ experience mean I process turntable repairs and set-up your arm and cartridge better than any hi-fi store. I can also recommend, supply and fit the right cartridge for your arm and deck.

I’m not affiliated with any particular supplier. This means I offer the best options, not just stuff I have to sell! I will precisely adjust the delicate electronics in your turntable and lubricate moving parts with synthetic oils and greases.

Have a look at some of these amazing Liquid Audio testimonials. New business comes mostly by word of mouth and reflective of the quality of service Liquid Audio provides.

As a kid, I cherished my Tandy 200-in-1 electronics project lab, Dick Smith electronics kits, my Dad's hi-fi and my own first proper system. Later, I created Liquid Audio to help keep classic hi-fi gear alive and well. Our mission: to deliver TLC for classic Japanese, American and European hi-fi stereo equipment.

    Chasing turntable belt for old Philips 3 in one can you help.

    Chasing needle for a Garrard GT-25P.

      Thanks for the query. As per the previous comment, I am not a retailer and don’t operate a retail facility. I deal with my stockists to provide parts (belts, stylii, cartridges etc) for my clients who bring their equipment in for maintenance and repair. I can and do sometimes source cartridges for clients on a one-off basis, but not small value items. Regards, Mike.

    My pitch control on a Numark TT500 is completely out of whack. Whats the approx. cost for a repair, please?

    Regards, Steph

    1. Mike

      Hi Steph

      Hard to say without looking, could be several causes.


      1. Steph

        Thanks, but do you have a rough price range as I’m on a bit of a budget and just working out costings.
        Cheers, Steph

        1. Mike

          I really don’t like to speculate, I would need to inspect the deck as I said. Generally with this type of deck repairs are only warranted if they are very basic.

    I have a BSR 3-speed turntable in an AWA HiFi .It is a mid-70s unit. On starting, it throws the arm up in the air and plonks it down in the record (not at the beginning). Repairable?

    1. Mike

      Hi Cheryl

      Thanks for your enquiry. This is possibly repairable but unfortunately not the type of gear I work on unless I have a fair bit of free time and at the moment I am flat out. Often, repairs on gear like this are not worth it unless they are very simple. I hope you find someone who can sort this out for you

    Can you put on a belt fine tune a VZ 3500 sony verticle player im getting hold of?

    1. Mike

      Of course, except from memory the VZ vertical players were Sharp branded, not Sony.

  6. Andy

    Hey mate would you be able to replace the tone arm on a Stanton st-150

    1. Mike

      Hi Andy
      I could do it for sure, but I’d have to say that it wouldn’t be a viable repair in terms of what I’d have to charge to do it versus what the deck is worth. I would suggest trying to find another secondhand, or possibly putting the money towards a better deck.

  7. Terry Carroll

    Can you please tell me why a tonearm on a Philips af 911, returns half way through the last track on a LP ?

    1. Mike

      Hi and thanks for your query

      It sounds like your deck needs service and adjustment. The process is straightforward but I am set up for this type of work. It should definitely not be attempted without the correct tools, service data and experience.

      Happy to help, let me know if I can be of assistance. I should add that I am closed for new business while I have a bit of a break. I can accept new work again towards then end of January.

      Kind regards

    I need a stylus for my grandad record player can I come a pick one up from you.

    1. Mike

      Hi – sorry but I am not a retailer, i can supply parts as part of a service but I do not operate retail sales.

    Hi, I need my lenco, turn table repaired
    I’m presuming it’s just a belt or globe problem, but I would like it fixed.
    I live in rockingham and would like to bring it to you when your free.

  10. Paul

    Hi Mike,
    I recently bought a His Master’s Voice Gramophone off eBay. I’m not sure on the authenticity of the unit (not really that fussed if it’s genuine or not), but it seems to be slipping gears when I try to wind it up. As I wind it, you can feel the spring tension increasing but then it slips and releases all the spring tension. Once this happens, with the turn-table brake released, it doesn’t turn at all. I was wondering if you are able to have a look at it?
    Thanks in advance,

    1. Mike

      Hi Paul, this is not the sort of equipment I work on so I cannot assist with this one unfortunately. Regards, Mike.

    2. Mike

      Hi Paul, not sure if I repplied to you via email, but this is not the types of equipment I work on. Thanks for your equiry, regards, Mike.

    Hi Mike, I have a HMV Music Centre (model no. 45254) and I believe it needs a new belt. The records won’t spin on the platter and I’ve removed the platter to check it out- what looks to be the previous belt has melted and broken. Would you be able to help with this, and is it worth the investment?

    1. Mike

      Hi Isobel, I don’t work on these music center type systems unfortunately. A new belt sounds like it would fix it though, worth doing if so. Regards, Mike.

    Hello! I got a Bush MTT2/SAA turntable (on its own) but don’t have amp/preamp and things to make it work. I would like to know if you sell equipment and what’s recommended to be able to play vinyls on in.

    1. Mike

      Hi Gabi, thanks for making contact. The best thing is to give me a call for a chat, as there’s a bit to cover here. Bottom line is that I wouldn’t be playing vinyl on the Bush if you want it to last. I don’t sell equipment generally speaking but I am happy to make some recommendations based on your budget and can tell you where to go if you live in Perth. You can call me on 0439 690 four three six! Regards, Mike.

      1. Gabi

        Thank you for your prompt reply, Mike. I will give you a call as soon as I can (probably later in this afternoon or tomorrow morning).

    Hi, I have inherited a beogram 1200 and I it needs some TLC-maybe a new belt/stylus.
    Is this something you would be interested in looking at.
    Andrew Hill

    1. Mike

      Hi Andrew, I am happy to look at her for you but these old girls are complex and usually need a bunch of cleaning and lubrication to bring them back to life. I am not taking on larger jobs now until the new year, so you are welcome to contact me then, or give me a call on 0439 690 436 to discuss. Regards, Mike.

    My DJ set up is about 20 years old and in desperate need for a service. Ie turntables/mixer/amp. Do you service these?

    1. Liquid Mike

      Hi Brendan, I’m away at the moment but fill out the contact form with makes/models and I’ll respond when I return!
