The Technics SE-A100 Amplifier Rises From the Dead!

The Technics SE-A100 Amplifier Rises From the Dead!

Finally, after days of painstaking work, this beautiful amplifier lives again.

This stunning, incredibly rare and dead Technics SE-A100 power amplifier visited several repairers before coming to Liquid Audio, but I’m glad I was last on this occasion. I reckon I’m just about happier than the owner at this point. If you knew how challenging this repair was and just how hard repairs like this are without replacement boards, original parts, factory service aids, a paper manual and having been made far worse by those ill-advised previous repair attempts, you’d know why I’m so happy. Hearing this thing for the first time in years really put a smile on my face!

There’s a reason why there aren’t many of these incredible amplifiers still running, but thankfully this one is. More to come…

As a kid, I cherished my Tandy 200-in-1 electronics project lab and Dick Smith Funway electronics kits. I had my own little hi-fi at 16. Later, I started Liquid Audio, a specialist hi-fi equipment repair business. Keeping classic hi-fi gear alive and well is what we do. Our mission: to deliver TLC for classic Japanese, American and European hi-fi stereo equipment. In my spare time, I cook, ride, listen to music and research interesting topics.
