  1. Hi folks, please recommend a guru in servicing Naks in Melbourne area Thanks Henry
  2. Hi Stereonetters, Today I purchased for NZD$1 (deemed as E-Waste) two Tascam 112R MK II Cassette Decks - I am looking for someone in NZ that can assess and repair at least one of them. One of decks powers up but when I play a tape it goes into Record Pause Mode. Neither Play, FF or RW is functioning. I contacted Fred at Retrotronics in Auckland but he does not repair he prefers to buy, restore and sell his own equipment which is understandable. I am based in Hamilton New Zealand and the repairer could use parts from one to the other or repair both... after paying out $1 I'm happy to throw some coin into this job could even give one of the decks to the repairer if they want to have one for themselves...as long as I get my one up and going. Parts available from https://tascamninja.com Let me know if you a guy or gal up for the job, cheers William.
  3. I know there are many stories about LCD3 drivers giving up. Mine was purchased in Europe in 2014, started having trouble with the left driver intermittently and it finally gave up couple of months ago. I reached out Audeze service, they indicated that its out of service (which I knew already) and that it would cost a whopping 598 USD + shipping to US and back. I prefer my HD800 and have not used LCDs that much, funny that HD800s are still going strong barring a cable tear and headband change and LCDs died on me. Has anyone had similar issue? Anyone got any idea if this can be repaired locally?
  4. Hi, Does anybody know somewhere that does repairs on super tweeters, the brand is Grant. Any assistance would be helpful. Thanks in advance. JJ
  5. Hi all, I'm new here as of yesterday. I pulled a Nagra IV SJ reel to reel tape player from a skip bin nearly two years ago. Does anyone know of anyone in Australia or the best place to get things checked out or to just get replacement parts for some of the perished follower wheels etc? I talked with the guys that owned it and as far as they knew it was in good order, they were just instructed to bin all gear that had not been used in recent times due to downsizing of the office. I also picked up an old B&K meter which is of interest to me (acoustic engineer) from the bin. I'd like to get it running and try it out.
  6. Dear fellow members, My Marantz AV7701 started to have a mind of its own and now is continuously restarting on/off. There is a YouTube clip of another with the same issue so it seems to be a common problem. Comments below on YouTube from another poster suggested it is the PSU. Here is the clip (it's not me btw :-) ): The question I would like to ask, it is worth spending to repair or just save and spend on top for a new unit? I mean at least I would assume the repair may be around the $400 mark .. Even if the repair is good, usually warranties from the repair mob is not very long. As we all know that a replacement Prepro will not be cheap. 4K passthrough is not that important (although it does supports it however 4K@30p) I am in Melbourne and I believe JLS electronics is pretty good. Has anyone been in this dilemma? What would you advise. Thanks for your time. Cheers
  7. Hi guys, I've got an old Sansui AU5900 thats in lovely condition except the relay has died on me i.e. no 'click' when you turn the amp on. Manually toggling the relay (with a hell of a lot of insulation) results in glorious glorious sound so I'm planning to unsolder and replace it. I'm not sure where to find a replacement though. The relay is marked as an Omron Type MY02 and also has -0-Y23 printed on it's plastic cover. Since google has been of very limited assistance, can anyone point me in the direction of a replacement? Cheers, Tim
  8. Hey everyone, thought I would share some pictures of my BAT VK500 before I send it away to the United States for repair I emailed Balanced Audio Technology a couple of months to see if they had any idea about what was causing the crackle/popping sound coming from the right channel of the VK500. I expected to get some generic email, but to my surprise the owner of the company Victor Khomenko responded directly to my email to see if he could provide some assistance. Since my initial email to Victor he has really been a great help and has replied promptly to all my inquiries. BAT's customer support really is a testament to how good of a company Balanced Audio Technology really is. They build good gear and offer great support. Here's a Stereophile interview with Victor from a few years back: https://www.stereophile.com/interviews/767/index.html I'm not a technician but I managed to remove both Channel's from the amplifier with little trouble. Anyways here are the pics and will hopefully have it shipped by the end of the week.
  9. Well, I learnt an important lesson a couple of nights ago. Don’t use halogen desk lamps to light your metal Supex cartridge trying to take photos of the stylus ...idjiot At some point I noticed my Supex 901 Super was getting quite hot. I took a couple more shots and then re-mounted the cartridge to TT thinking I’ll just listen to one more Lp before bed. Alas, I’d lost the left channel. I desperately checked all connections and even swapped headshells but no luck. Devastated. Nothing worse than ruining something you love with stupidity! So.... I’m guessing the heat has fused or severed/popped the left coil? Can anyone help to let me know if I’m on the right track, and can it possibly be repaired??? There was a tiny volume of music coming from the left speaker but only just. I love that cartridge and they’re not easy to come by at decent cost so I’m hoping I can get her up and running again.
  10. My apologies if this isn't the right place for this question. Yesterday I turned on my Xindak monoblock and it shat itself. Smoke, all of that good stuff. Was wondering if anyone could recommend someone good to take it to for repair? Cheers!
  11. Item: NAD T973 (Broken) Location: Emerald VIC Price: Free (Donation to SNA is much preferred) Item Condition: Broken Reason for selling: No use to me, funding towards SNA Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: No pictures Hi I have an old NAD T973 7 channel power amplifier sitting in it's box that I have no meaning for. 5 years back the amp created a fault in one of the 7 channels and would go into protection mode. Since it was an insurance job 1 unsuccessful repair has been made after which they decided to pay out. The amp has been sitting in it's box since then and was forgotten about until our last move. I decided to turn it on and perhaps have the faulty channel removed and turned into a 6 channel amp, but as soon as I did this, silver sparks and a foul smell occurred from the area where the capacitors are located. Boxed it up again and moved it into the garage. For anyone who is interested this unit is free to be picked up, but the more generous person willing to donate to SNA will be the preferred choice. Shipping will have to be arranged by you, but can become a bit costly due to the size and weight of the box. I am pretty flexible with my time, so I don't foresee any drama's there. Box dimensions are 72cmx72cmx40cm and roughly 35kg. (Unit itself is 31kg)
  12. Hey Guys I'm looking for some help finding someone to repair my Technics SP10 turntable. We seem to have limited options in Perth. I have tried a few people, i seem to either get - Yes thats an open cheque book please - Yes i can do it, then excuses, price hikes and no action, Or yes I can but i don't want to (my interpretation, no thats too hard for me but I don't want to say that). Either way I have had no luck. I would post over east if I thought I could get it repaired. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  13. Hello Any comments on the best place to get speaker drivers re-cone / repaired ? I am in VIC. I have older Duntech Princess. I found a place online that has been very helpful in emails, although i just noticed they seem to have some bad reviews online, this has me a little concerned. Any comments or advice would be much appreciated. Regards Rob
  14. Hi All, I've just pulled a few bits and pieces out of storage for a play, one of which was an old Sansui AU3900 which is still in lovely cosmetic condition. I plugged her in last night and it powers up (I can hear the usual relay clicks etc) but all I can get out of it are pops and cracks. The cracks are very loud and don't seem to be influenced at all by the volume control. I popped the lid for a quick inspection but everything looks OK visually as well as minimal dust etc. I can only spot one main fuse at the rear which is obviously intact as she powers on. I'm thinking it's probably dead and beyond my skill level to repair but I'm reluctant to give up so easily. Any ideas? Cheers, Tim
  15. I have rotel rb-981 power amplifier..However it powers up and protection light goes off.
  16. Hi, my Pioneer LX608 plasma no longer seems to be able to get to standby mode, let alone turn on the screen. Could this be a capacitor problem? Any good recommendations for repair in Melbourne east? The tv is out of warranty, and since Pioneer closed shop I've no idea where to look. Cheers.

  18. Hi everyone, Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask, I'm new here, and hope someone can help. I've got an older Denon AVC-A1 which has pregnant capacitors on the power supply. They are marked ELNA For Audio 15000uF 73V, however I can't find any reference to this spec capacitor anywhere. I'm just going to replace them with a bigger capacitor, or one with a higher voltage rating, whichever is cheapest, but my question is, do I really need an "audio" spec capacitor for this stage, I would have assumed if anything, ripple current would have been priority? Also, there are a HECK of a lot of caps around rated for 63V, am I ever going to see voltage that high in that section of my amp, or can I get away with lower rated caps? TIA EDIT: I shouldn't have trusted what I saw, according to service manuals they should be 71V rated and marked DENON.... these are likely fakes. Oh well no better time to replace them. Probably don't care so much about the previous questions considering they are readily available now.... Cheers
  19. Hi, For some reason I started looking into older and vintage amplifiers because I am starting to like the look of it. Either I have become of vintage age, or it is the age where vintage is cool. I do hope it is the latter. If they age just like me, than I might expect a few quirks and a bit of maintenance to buff up the aged interior. What things should I take into account, when buying an older amp, or other equipment? An internet search came up with a couple of things. - Bias/DC adjustment. Can this be done with any amp? - Checking and replacing capacitors. The lifespan of these things seem to vary from 10 - 30 years. Would you replace all of them? - Resolder dry joints. This seems to differ with how hot the unit runs and if it frequently has been turned on and off. Would you resolder every individual dry joint or just in some particular areas? There are probably even more things that I haven't found out yet and looking at these, is it really worth the trouble? Would a similar priced modern amp being able to catch up with an older or vintage high end unit? I wouldn't mind trying some stuff, but how much cash would I need to keep at hand, to make this an enjoying experience?
  20. Hi All, I have a Chord Chorus Reference RCA interconnect which has a faulty heat-shrink. The connector ends of the cable are covered by a heat-shrink of which one end has come off. As a result the connector is a bit wobbly and is rotating. My question is, Can I re-heat the heat-shrink and try to put the connector back inside ? will the heat-shrink shrink more and make the fix entirely impossible ? I've circled the problematic area in red. Cheers
  21. Hi All, I want to know the best person to send an ARCAM CD 92T with Ring DAC to be Serviced / Recapped. Can someone recommend a reliable person with a good track record ? Cheers..
  22. My JVC X3 produces a great image but for the last few years the remote control has not worked. It didn't really matter as I could reach the controls on the unit. However I recently had some lamp problems and I stumbled across a thread on the AVS forum that described how to fix the IR (and maybe the lamp) on the X3. See the link below. Apparently a capacitor was installed the wrong way around in the original build. So I followed the instructions and sure enough when I reversed the cap the IR started working again. The procedure is very simple. So many thanks to the AVS forum and all that posted. If you have an X3 the fix is real. http://www.avsforum.com/forum/24-digital-hi-end-projectors-3-000-usd-msrp/1296327-official-jvc-rs40-x3-owners-thread-336.html
  23. Hi All, Long time lurker, recluse poster !!! I have a 60" Samsung LED TV (UA60ES8000) . When we moved homes I noticed two light spots appear on the screen. I can't recall them being there prior to our move however we had the TV in another room and it wasn't watched as much as it is now so the cause of the problem is unknown. The light spots only appear on light colour images... e.g., they are visible when a white image is displayed yet not when a black image is displayed. They are not perfect circles which makes me this the issue isn't pixel related. Things I've done to fix it to date include 1. Suspecting it is pressure related I removed the back of the TV to see if any screws from boards were placing pressure on the rear of the LED screen, no such luck 2. I've followed a few guides on here which suggest turning the TV off and applying a firm wiping motion from the centre of the screen to the outer edge, this hasn't helped either. I've attached photo's below, does anyone have ideas about what could be causing it most importantly how to fix it ? I've called 1 Samsung repairer and they seem all to happy to replace the screen rather than try fix it, cost is about $1400 for a new panel ! My questions.... Can I fix myself ? can someone else fix ? does it require a new Panel ? Driving me nuts when watching sport (which I do a lot !!) as it the green of the grass is terrible. Thanks in advance. Dylan
  24. Hi Guys, Recently my Rythmik E15HP stopped working and i'm looking for some help, professional or otherwise, to get it back up and running (my technical skills are very limited..!) I've been in touch with the guys at Rythmik and with their help i've managed to test the driver - which seems to be working. They've suggested it's most likely a bad power amp module - which they said they can send. Apparently it will require some soldering though which is beyond me. I don't have a huge budget for the repair at the moment - in fact i'm not sure how much it will cost - so if anyone recommend someone or even just what I should expect to pay i'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance!
  25. Hi all, My Audiolab 8000A mk2 is behaving very oddly. The input selctor switch was a bit iffy. Either channel would cut in and out. Now the right has cut out altogether. But what was a new one on me was, that when I pressed the tone defeat switch I got a weird feedback/phased/wailing sound! At which point I turned it off fearing damage to my speakers. Anyway, can anyone recommend an amp repair tech in, or near, the Sunshine Coast, SE Qld? Thanks
