Giving old audio gear new life™

“Vintage” has different meanings depending on your point of view. Our point of view comes from the heyday of HiFi in the mid-70’s into early-80’s that set the stage for development of new high quality gear as well as a healthy market for qualilty high end vintage gear. Over 40 years later, many audio enthusiasts are still enjoying HiFi systems with the gear they grew up dreaming about. The market has changed and grown to offer endless options for audio playback. No matter your budget, there is a way for everyone to have a fun system that is enjoyable to listen to.

Music matters, and it is our passion. It is the reason this business exists. We are not a electronics store or repair shop, although we do offer turntable servicing and references to quality audio techs. Our primary service is designing and building custom wood-based products, mainly AR XA turntables. We started carrying Cardas Audio parts to use in our customer builds, and more recently Rega Research because we only use Rega tonearms. As customer demand grows, we will offer a limited product selection to help audio enthusiasts elevate their home audio system. We offer personalized service that allow us to understand your goals and help you make good choices. The “NUT” in our name, stands for New, Used & Trades. Contact us for our trade-in policy.

Our services

Our personalized services focus on designing custom built AR XA turntables with Rega tonearms. The AR XA platform responds well to modern updates and will compete sonically with modern turntables that cost more.

We also offer repair and restoration for most turntables from well known brands like Pioneer to high performance turntables from less well know companies like Bergmann Audio. We work on other home audio equipment including speakers. As time allows, we custom design and build custom wood-based products that include audio racks, speaker stands, side panels, amplifier stands and record storage. We also do our best to provide resources to repair shops and other helpful resources.

We will accept trades on electronics, speakers, and turntables that are functional, and have a good chance for resell in a short period of time. We aren’t setup to store gear that could take months to sell. We are mostly interested in AR XA turntables. Contact us for details.

Audio Advice

“Thank You So Much for spending the time with me to find a repair shop in my area that was willing to repair my vintage compact stereo and turntable.  I thought I would have to ship the equipment out of state but you helped me find someone local.  We all thank you for your passion and dedication !! Very happy customer.
