    Best repairman in the USA and Canada. Quick turn around!

  2. Tim Driscoll Says:

    By far the BEST repair guy around. Saved me a ton of money on my QSC amp. Very fair prices. Very fast turnaround and simply a GREAt person to do bussiness with.

    During my years as an engineer at Pachyderm Studio, I would refer to Jim as “The King of Troubleshooting”. He worked so fast that I needed a pot of coffee in me just to keep up! (and no, Jim did not ask me to write this – ha!)

  4. Zac Bates Says:

    Extremely pleased. Very reasonable rates, super fast service, and educational. Fixed my Mackie HRS120 subwoofer amp. The previous 3 comments are smack on.

    Jim is a true pro. Fast turn around and fair pricing. I restore vintage audio and having him repair in such a timely manor gets my gear up for sale quickly.

  7. Michael Madich Says:

    Very pleased with the work Jim did on vintage amps for me. Highly recommend Jim.

    I’ve had the benefit of working with Jim in the field. Just soaking up a 1/10th of Jim’s consummate professionalism has made me a better engineer. Recently, I took some high end audio equipment to him for repair. He deduced the issue almost immediately and fixed the issue even faster! If you care about your equipment like I do, you could not find better hands to put them in! Jim is the real deal!

    Hello from Nebraska !
    We have a 1976 Pro 04 that I like to use on occasion . I would like to have a spare input strip for this desk . It is loaded with both Pro 04s and 04a , and either one would be fine. Do you have any leads ?

    thanks !

    I had inherited a Pioneer sx-780 and a Dual 521 turntable from my grandparents. They appeared to be in mint condition, however they had electrical issues from sitting unused for 20+ years. I called all over the metro and was unable to find any shop who knew how to repair both units, was reasonably priced, or wasn’t going to make me wait for half a year before they made the repairs. Jim tackled the task in less than a week and for half the price of the reviews i read on google of other shops. I was thrilled with the whole process and so glad i was lucky enough to find Jim.

    I needed some work done on some 80s gear and Jim was the right tech for the Job. His experience goes well beyond the gear that I can bring him and the fact that he is local to me is icing on the cake. I will be bringing more equipment to him in the future!

    Hi, I have a Samsung AV Surround Receiver AV-R720. It turns on but the setup function does come on when using either remote or front panel,. I’m not able to set up my surround sound speakers I just installed. Any suggestions? Estimate for repair? Is it worth it? Thanks!

  16. Carson Baker Says:

    Great knowledge, professional and excellent service.

  17. Phil Jutras Says:

    Just called Jim for a random problem with a H3000 Mixer and the support was so quick and friendly. We managed to identify the problem and I hope it’s not the last time I’ll call him.

    Thanks a lot!

    I have a Califone 1155C record player. The sound was great and the player kept the right speed. Last time I was playing it had an electrical smell, the power slowed/dimmed and then it stopped. I replaced the fuse and the instance I turned it on the fuse blew. Something has burnt out. My question to this group is it worth trying to repair this player.

    My guess is the power supply transformer or could need to Replace The Voltage Regulator Also small electrolytic capacitors on the motorboard

    wonder can you provide any in sight on repairing this player
