Electronic Service and Repair

Posted on October 11, 2009 by Leave a comment

The fact of the matter is this, you don’t need to buy brand new electronics. It’s a myth.
Older electronics often function better than new versions when taken care of and serviced properly. The state of the world economies has a direct effect on the quality and engineering practices of companies that produce home electronics. In the recent past we’ve seen a decline in the quality of materials and engineering of new electronics. Not that these new electronics are necessarily bad, but companies are trying to sell more units while saving on cost. This is understandable, but the consumer loses.

So don’t buy new… fix your old electronic equipment and you will save money and have a great piece of history in your collection. No matter if it’s a TV, VCR, DVD player… we fix and service anything that can be plugged in that doesn’t store food (this is unless someone put a grilled cheese sandwich inside the BetaMax HiFi you have set up for special occasions).

We will service and restore any vintage receiver, pre-amp, or turntable. McIntosh, Bang & Olufson, Pioneer, Sony, Kenwood, Marantz, Technics, Yamaha, JVC, Onkyo, Realistic, Sherwood, Thorenz, Frazier, Akai, Carver, Pilot… the list just goes on and on. All of these companies and others made some of the best systems around and still sound better than anything out there if you can take care of it and have it serviced properly.  Some of the best pre-amps and receivers were made in the 1970’s. This was a golden era for electronics. Highly durable materials, immaculate engineering and in the “age of analog”… power was king.  Tube amps are a true gem and should always be restored. The sound produced is richer, fuller, warmer, cleaner, brighter and all around more beautiful and fulfilling than anything that you will find in the current “mp3 driven” market. If you find yourself with one of these units, or are even unsure of what you have or if it’s worth servicing, feel free to call Consumer Electronics Service and pick our brains. We can even have you send it to our offices, fix it like new, and then send it back to you.

So you’ve got a great system. However, it will never sound truly great unless you have the right turntable that is serviced properly. Perfect needles, unwarn belts and clean records will always yield the most fulfilling audio experience. Let CES refurbish or repair your turntable so that the warmth of analog recordings comes through crisp and clear. The misconception is that “records don’t sound good.” Nothing could be further from the truth. The quality of the record itself has a lot to do with it… yes. What happens when the records are good and the turntable isn’t in tip-top form? Loss of sound quality. So don’t skimp on purchasing a good turntable or getting a good turntable repaired and serviced. Vinyl records capture all the sound of a recording session with no compression what-so-ever. So hear everything you are supposed to hear and get that turntable up to snuff.
