Turntables need periodic, expert maintenance to maximise their performance. Unfortunately, turntable set-up, tuning and the subtleties involved in extracting maximum performance tend to be poorly understood. We guarantee to improve the performance of your turntable because we not only understand the engineering, we own some serious high-end machines, cartridges and have fine-tuned hundreds of different turntables. No need to rely on hearsay, we service all major brands and recommend, supply and fit styluses, cartridges and accessories.
Expert service of hi-fi equipment extends life, enhances performance and minimises downtime. We provide this expert service for amplifiers, CD players, tuners, preamplifiers, turntables and more. Utilising premium parts, tools and test & measurement equipment, we’ll clean, adjust and calibrate your hi-fi gear to perfection and have it running like new.
Your malfunctioning hi-fi gear is in safe hands with us. We carefully diagnose and repair all faults to the component level, rather than just replacing boards like many other repairers. With hundreds of models and thousands of faults successfully repaired, we’re sure to be able to assist you with your hi-fi equipment.
With classic and vintage hi-fi equipment hitting 30+ years of age, restoration and overhaul are critically important and will dramatically improve the performance and appearance of your gear. Readers from around the world enjoy our restorations almost as much as our customers. Our services are tailored to suit your budget, equipment and requirements.
If you are considering or have just purchased some hi-fi equipment, consider an inspection. Inspections can potentially save thousands in service and repair costs on valuable items. Equipment damaged in transit needs a professional inspection to initiate a claim. Maybe you’d like your cartridge examined to determine its condition and life left? Whatever the situation, Liquid Audio can help.
Our upgrades are based on science, best practice and evaluation through listening and measurement. Premium new and NOS vintage parts help extract maximum performance from your equipment, taking its performance to the next level.
Sometimes you just need some good advice and an in-home visit to improve the sound of your system. My ears are fine-tuned from over 40 years of listening to hi-fi equipment, playing and experiencing live music. I know how things should sound and offer guidance about cables, equipment, power conditioning, room treatments and more.
