Amplifier repairs:

Due to the specificity and time-consuming repairs of amplifiers, we do not perform introductory ones

diagnostics of the device as with repairs of turntables, but in agreement with the customer we start immediately

troubleshooting within a pre-agreed maximum budget. Service complexity

is different depending on the type and condition of the device, but the final price of the repair usually does not reach the maximum

agreed budget.

 

Option No. 1 with a maximum repair budget of up to CZK 10,000 includes:

    - complete inspection and measurement of the device
    - replacement of damaged or otherwise unsatisfactory components
    - cleaning contacts and switches, blowing dust
    - usually fast implementation

 

Option No. 2 with a maximum repair budget of up to CZK 20,000 includes:

    - complete inspection and measurement of the device
    - replacement of damaged or otherwise unsatisfactory components with branded quality components of American, European or Japanese production
    - complete cleaning of the device
    - this variant is suitable for higher class amplifiers with emphasis on sound quality.
