Audio Advice

Consulting Service to help you enjoy your HiFi

Do I buy or sell? . . . Is it worth fixing up my old gear?  I get asked to help people make decisions about their vintage hifi gear. So I offer a consulting service for people who are not comfortable navigating this process.

I have been involved in HiFi since the 70’s. I don’t claim to be an expert, but in over 40 years, I have learned enough to know what is good and what is a waste of your time and money. My goal is always to help you put together a vintage audio system that helps you enjoy the most important thing — music. A big part of making this happen involves decisions about buying, selling and repair of vintage audio.

I’m happy to give you a little free advice. But if you need more of my time and want to take advantage of my consulting service, my base rate starts at $25 for up to an hour of my time. If I am not able to help you, you don’t pay anything.

If you have questions about this service, please use the contact form to let me know how I can help you.

Buying Service

This service gives you the benefit of my experience as a buyer and seller online and locally, and how shipping costs can impact your decision. If you are not comfortable with navigating this process, I am happy to help you put together a hifi system you can get excited about, or simply offer you recommendation for items you are currently considering to purchase. I handle all the emails and phone calls for you, until it’s time for the transaction. My advice will be in context to your goals and budget.

Repair Service

This service has two areas to consider: does repair make sense; and if so, who can I trust to fix correctly? In many cases, shipping shouldn’t become an obstacle for choosing a shop that is far away. But if you have something big, like a vintage console, your only option is to find a shop within driving distance. I handle all the emails and phone calls for you, until it’s time to connect you with the right shop. My advice will be based in context to your goals and budget.
