Service & Repair

Is your amplifier crackling, turntable humming or CD player mistracking? Don’t worry, Liquid Audio can help.

Liquid Audio is a Perth-based specialist electronics repairer, devoted to delivering precision, professional, affordable service & repair for hi-fi electronics & turntables and keeping classic hi-fi gear alive and well.

What We Do

Liquid Audio’s mission is to deliver industry best-practice care for Japanese, American and European hi-fi stereo equipment sold from 1970 onwards. We offer:

How We’re Different

The littlest things make all the difference with precision electronics. Many repairers take shortcuts, use cheap parts and do sloppy work. At Liquid Audio, everything matters, from tools and test equipment to torquing fasteners and cleaning circuit boards correctly.

Liquid Audio takes on challenging jobs that others won’t because they are technically difficult or require a lot of work. Not all service & repair jobs are easy and we’re not afraid of the harder ones.

Specialist Vinyl & Turntable Services

Turntables need periodic, expert maintenance to maximise their performance and operational life. Unfortunately, few technicians understand the technical considerations and many do more harm than good.

Liquid Audio has decades of experience with vinyl. We have the test records, equipment, parts and experience to properly set-up and service your turntable and optimise your vinyl playback system. We work with major brands and recommend, supply and install belts, styli, cartridges, parts and accessories.

Inspection

If you are about to purchase hi-fi equipment, an inspection can save you from making an expensive mistake or taking on hidden service and repair costs. Equipment purchased online may sustain shipping damage and need an inspection to effect a claim. Maybe you’d like your stylus examined to determine its condition. In these and other cases, Liquid Audio can help.

Upgrades

Liquid Audio upgrades are based on science and real-world tests on a range of equipment. Extensive stocks of premium new and NOS audio parts helps us extract maximum performance from your equipment.

Consultation

Sometimes an in-home visit is the only way to get to the bottom of sonic issues. My ears are fine-tuned from 40 years listening to hi-fi equipment, playing music and musical instruments. I offer suggestions about cables, equipment, positioning, room treatments, equipment supports and more, saving you time, money and boosting performance.
