    Dont know about NYS but I do know that I haven't found any in Austin. I now fix everything myself, it works out better this way.

    I've heard one or two good things about In-House Repair in East Setauket. If you can hold tight a little, I'm readying up a Pioneer SX-838 to go there in the next week or so so I may soon have a first-person opinion.

    colortrakker, I am interested to hear how things go for you at In-House Repair. I have some old SAE equipment that I would like to have worked on and I'd rather not ship it. Good luck.

    I realize Nashville isn't super close, but AK member Nakdoc is the real deal.
     
  11. Thanks, If you have a number I'll add him to the list.

    Thanks - it's only a two hour drive, well worth it. I've driven farther to purchase antique clocks :D Do you know if Nakdoc is still active on the board? I found a reference to him while searching under some old posts, looking for info on my 680zx, and sent him a PM to ask about service.

    In-House Repair in East Setauket

    I have used In-House Service over the years to work on my vintage harmon/kardon gear.

    I have been pleased with Wayne's work and recommend him as a repair/restoration service for vintage h/k gear. :thmbsp:

    Here is a link to their website: http://www.stereorepair.net/
