Service & Repair

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

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

What We Do

Liquid Audio’s mission is delivering industry best-practice care and service for Japanese, American and European hi-fi stereo equipment sold from 1970 onwards, in five areas:

  • Service
  • Repair
  • Overhaul & Restoration
  • Upgrades
  • Consultation

How We’re Different

The littlest things make all the difference with service & repair work. Many repairers take shortcuts, use cheap parts, tools and do sloppy work. At Liquid Audio, everything matters, from the types of tools, test & measurement equipment, torquing fasteners correctly to cleaning circuit boards and using the correct type of solder.

Specialist Vinyl & Turntable Services

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

Liquid Audio has a long history 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.

Consultation

Sometimes an expert, in-home visit is the best way to get to the bottom of sonic issues. My hi-fi ‘ears’ are fine-tuned from 40 years spent 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 your system’s performance.
