Hey folks

 

I've recently been playing around with some old stuff and I've got a NAD3020i amp. 

 

However, I tested it out recently and the left channel isn't working. Given I struggle to work a microwave and I like my fingers unfried, I am not going to attempt to look at it myself.

 

Can anyone

 

a) tell me whether it's worth pursuing, or should I just can it?

b) indicate whether it's a big job 

c) suggest where I look for a repairer? (inner north Melbourne)

 

thanks in advance

 

Al

a) yes, those were great little amps and still go for decent $$$ 
b) most likely not

Thanks mate. From what little I know, it's a great amp and I'd be really keen to get it kicking again

I can’t speak for Melbourne, but Dr Hifi in Sydney is great. I’m sure you could post to him if needed?

 

However as with all repairs- labour is the expensive part, so be ready to spend at least $100 for the quote... possibly just to be told it’s irreparable.

 

That said if it’s an easy fix you’ll have a lovely working amp and the world will be a little better off for the fact that you fixed it rather than binning it :).

Hopefully its just the output stage blown.

Don't know anybody except Tony at Tivoli HiFi who could do the job easily.

Something like this is worth $200>$300 and it was an upgrade from the previous E series.

If it's been sitting idle for a while, chances are the mechanical  items (pots, switches, connectors) will have developed stale contacts.

If it makes it easier for you, you can drop it off at the Hi Fi Exchange, Clifton Hill, and I can pick it up from there.
