List of Repair Specialists for HIFI

Post by travellersolo on Sat Dec 03, 2016 11:31 am

Hello every member of hifi4sale,

I am new to this hobby, and I have just started to buy vintage equipment. I know in the long run that any vintage gear will have parts that need to be replaced or even to repair. So why not we list some known repair specialists here to make it easier for newbies like me? Also, a listing of repair specialists out of KL area would be useful to other hifi kakis around the country. 

I'd suggest we list them in the following format (just a suggestion, something like this would make it more uniform and organized):

Name
State-City: (e.g. Sabah-Kudat)
Expertise: (e.g. Amp/Speakers/Turn Tables/......)
Contact:
Your experience with him:

Hopefully we can see a whole list that covers the whole country!

----List: ----------------------------
(If you find any wrong/outdated info below, or if you want to add any actual experience with any of the repair specialists listed here, both positive or negative ones, please let me know, I'll try to include your input here. Thanks :-) )

Name:       Alex Rozario
State-CitySelangor-Balakong
Expertise:  Amplifier, Turntable
Contact:    016-2068974
Your experience with him: Repaired my very old Marantz 1060, took about a month due to some hard to find parts, the overall result is very good. My amp is functioning like new now.

Name:       Edmund Jude
State-CitySelangor-Shah Alam
Expertise:  Amplifier
Contact:    012-217 4777 
(Avenue Crest Road Silver Jubilee 22/1, Section 22, 40150 Shah Alam)


Name:       Mr Oh
State-CityKL - Tmn OUG
Expertise:  Hi Fi Equipment
Contact:    012-206 0888
Your experience with him: Very good workmanship. Just have to be prepared to wait for long period (more than six month is possible), he has too many items on hand.

Great thread!  

There are a few in KL and my favorite is Mr. Oh of OUG, Kuala Lumpur. 

Known him for more than 10 years. Capable of restoring almost all known audio gears.

yeah, i read about Mr Oh here also, but since I have not sent any item to him (nor any other people) yet, I can't say anything.

How about other people's experience, and other repair specialists that are worth to be mentioned here?

I engaged Mr Jude a few times and very happy with his service and i will continue look for him
if i need help.

Just that for old equipment, he needs time to source for replacement parts if he
doesn't carry the parts, expect some waiting period before fixing.

It really depends on what the issue is, and whether the required parts are available to fix the item. I have had to wait for nearly 4 months for one of my item, and finally I had to source the part myself before handing it over to the repair specialist to fix the item.

Does not hurt to give him/ her a prod every couple of weeks if he/ she is busy to see what the status is.

Hi travelersolo, even if you didn't name the person, I think we all can guess. 

Sometimes guys waited for a year. Smile.  Just try giving him a call or send a message again. He is usually diligent. Good luck!
