Giving old audio gear new life™

Vintage HiFi means different things to people. Anything from the late-50’s to early-90’s is vintage. No matter the decade, chances are there is a tube or solid state component that speaks to you on some level. The nostalgia of analog takes us back to simpler times. Analog can sound fantastic and with the sheer volume of music that is available — used and new — exploring music can become a fun and rewarding adventure. Music can take us on a journey, and vintage audio gear is how we travel along that journey. So it’s important to properly care for our gear and get good advice for keeping your vintage audio in good working order.

The mission of Vintage HiFi Nut is giving old audio gear new life … by offering services and products to help you realize your system’s full potential and elevate the look of your listening space. Feel free to look at testimonials to see how we are doing.

Our 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 that include speakers and electronics. 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, including audio advice for buying, selling and repairing.

We are an authorized dealer for Cardas Audio, and have been using their DIY parts for years. Our inventory is focused on DIY work for turntables, but you can buy any Cardas product from us. Find what you want in the Product Guide or Parts Catalog, and just let us know if it’s not in our Shop, and we’ll order it to ship direct to you. We’ll also beat any legitimate advertised price from any authorized Cardas dealer by 10%. We want to earn your business, and will prove it with personalized service. We are also now an authorized parts dealer for Rega in the US. Our focus is on turntables, tonearms, phono cartridges, phono stages and related accessories. You can order any Rega product from us and we’ll have it shipped direct to you, just like any other online audio shop.

“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.
