How much to repair my Stereo, Receiver or Amplifier?

Obviously that depends a lot on what kind of problem your amplifier, stereo or receiver has, if you've jumped the main fuse with foil and now you've seen a small fireworks show coming from the back of the unit, or how many windows you had to open to let all the smoke out...

Seriously though, if you'd like to know an approximate cost to repair your receiver or amplifier, or even if your receiver, stereo or amplifier is even worth fixing, just send us an email along with the brand & model number, and the problems you're experiencing. Now, we need as many details as possible as to the problems your experiencing. Please elaborate as much as you can. The more information we have, the better we are at estimating the cost of repair.

Of course, you can always just ship your unit into us for repair service and once it arrives, we'll put it on the bench in short order, find the problems and then email or call you back with what we've found and a cost of repair. No work is performed and no charges become due without your express consent. Just click the 'Request Service' link to the left.



But I can buy a cheap receiver for $150!

Well my friend, while that may be true, do remember that you get what you pay for. Many of the older units just have a sound that you wont easily replace with a unit made in China, Taiwan or Malaysia!

Of course, it's always a good idea to do a quick check on ebay for your model/ brand. Check the sold/ completed auctions - this is what your unit is worth. If its selling for $200 or less - it's not something you want to send in for repair - unless it has sentimental value, or is an heirloom piece.



Do you do restore vintage audio equipment?

Sorry, not at this time. Now, if you're looking for repairs on vintage equipment - that we can handle! Any make, model or brand. I've been doing this now for well over 36 years. It's a rare thing indeed when something comes through the door that I haven't seen before!


Is my receiver, stereo or amplifier is worth fixing?

The first indication as to whether or not to invest any money in your unit - is it's age. The older the unit, the more likely it is that you DO want to spend money on it. The second indication is it's weight. If it requires both hands to pickup, and you risk a hernia lifting it... Its definitely something you may want to invest in. If your receiver has a dial string tuner, you wont easily replace it's sound with what is available today for less than a grand! If you can pick the unit up with your pinky finger, well, forget it - go buy something new - unless it's a keepsake, has sentimental value or is an heirloom piece.

The silver faced units are almost a given that they are worth investing in. Some older black faced units are also worth your time and money to get them repaired or restored. Just depends on the brand model. You can do a quick search on ebay and see what they are going for - be sure to check the sold or completed listings. With few exceptions, if it's selling 'good used' for around $200 or less - well, it may be time to go shopping for a new receiver or amplifier, as it's gonna cost at least that to get repaired - especially when you figure in the cost of shipping. Most units ship for $40 or less, unless the package weighs over 40lbs and the box is larger than 25" x 25" x 25".

While the older Receivers and Amplifiers may not be THX certified, the sound they put out is much warmer. Comparing these Vintage Receivers and Amplifiers to today's Hi-Tech toys is like comparing apples to oranges - they are in completely different leagues. If you want a home theater experience - go buy the home theater stuff. If you want to listen to some vinyl or you want to rock, or just want that warm sound again, then these Vintage Receivers and Amplifiers are for you. Of course, you CAN have both... One room for theater, the other for listening to vinyl, tapes or CD's.


Why should I choose AVRepair?
  ^ Top


When you've been doing something your entire life - since 1982 - you get good at it. Being an electronics bench technician is all I've ever known - I eat, sleep and breathe this stuff! I've been at it professionally since 1982 - but I fixed my first TV when I was 12 years old! (Moma's boy genius) So, I've definitely been around the block.

Satisfied Clients:
We've had our hands in things that went into space! We've done repair work for countless Government Agencies and their contractors. We've also performed service for just about every College and Campus in the United States, and many foreign Countries as well. We have compiled a 'Not So Long List' that you can check out, but suffice it to say that we've 'been there and done that' for tens of thousands of Professionals, Colleges, Campuses, Law Enforcement and Government Agencies in this country and around the World. We definitely know our business... How else could we have gotten so many REAL Testimonials?

Our Return Rate:
The normal return rate for the electronics service industry is 15-20% and that is not a joke. We're very proud of our return rate as it is less than one percent! We do it by paying attention to details, and taking the time to do it right. While we're not perfect, and we do occasionally make mistakes, we don't have a quota that we have to meet, nor do we get paid by the piece. That means we can take our time to do it right, the first time. Fix it and Fix it right - It's what we do.


How much do you charge for Estimates?
  ^ Top

The estimate fee is $30.00, and is waived if your unit is repaired. No need to pay this up front - we can settle up later.
Send me an email with your make/ model and the problems you're experiencing and I should be able to give you a 'ballpark' price. Understand that it won't be set in stone - but with 36 years in the business, you'd think I'd have a good guess as to what it will take to repair your unit!

Beware of "free" estimates - these guys just shoot you a price and hope you'll go for it. They never take the time to actually troubleshoot. That's something they'll do later - and then call you back and ask for more money!


How much do you charge for Return Shipping?
  ^ Top

That depends a lot on how heavy your unit is, and how far the package needs to travel, and if it requires double boxing (common). You can expect, at a minimum that you'll paying $40 on the return trip.
