• QuadraphonicQuad welcomes you and encourages your participation! Treat all members with respect. Please keep all discussions civil, even when you have a strong opinion on a particular topic.

    Do not request or offer for sale or trade copies or files of copyrighted material - no matter how rare or unavailable to the public they might be. We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort. Any posts of this sort will be deleted without notification.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad. Our message base is an incredibly rich resource of detailed information on virtually all topics pertaining to surround-sound. You will be surprised at what you can find with a little digging!

I recommend Howard Bardach at The Audio Specialist.

I have used him both for personal items, and we use him at work too.

Reliable, and excellent workmanship.

I would recommend him for any repair of vintage or new high end equipment.

He is on Ventura Blvd. in Studio City, Los Angeles, CA. I do not know if he takes stuff via post, as we have always taken our equipment to his shop.

His phone is 818-995-8648
