Repair tech needed in Philly, PA bucks county area for a Apt Holman pre amp
Hello all, I'm new here but have been accessing this site for some time and finely need your help. I was originally from the Chicago area and I guess I was pretty spoiled because I never seem to have trouble finding people to repair equipment like I do now. all my equipment is getting on in age just like me. Only the equipment can be made young again by a good tech! In one week of incredible use I think I finely have over stressed some of the individuals.
First off is my pioneer spec 4 amp started sounding a little off in one channel which i've verified after seeing one channel was considerably lower than the other even though the outputs were set at the same level. I started thinking dirty pots just need to be cleaned.then my Apt Holman pre amp went goofy as well.turning on the processor switch would kill the system completely speaker balancing was changing output levels to different levels than normal and there are other controls on the component that was not acting properly,so I'm now considering that I do have a problem in the amp, but my more serious ones are in the preamp.
Folks I have been warned on the Internet not to take my beloved preamp to some 19-year-old tech used to fixing TVs and I would agree with that. My problem is,I've searched the area far and wide and can't even find anybody that services audio equipment! that's crazy to me coming from an area that I could find just about anything or any kind of repairman within 50 to 75 miles to handle any kind of repair I could trouble someone with.
Now there was some guy named Vince in Boston MA that is supposed to be the almighty wizard of the Apt HolmAn preamp. And I think I heard of him some where on this site. Can anyone help me in someone local? Preamps are really no problem to ship but the power amp is a killer to ship weight wise and cost wise. Then I have a slow running Pioneer Rt 909 that most techs won't touch because of skill level and then I have a Pioneer
PL-L 800 turn table that I think needs a motor. Please help me people "I can't stand The silence" I'm not equipped to operate without music.
