 ______________________________________________________________

We are no longer servicing Home-Theater / AV receivers due to their lack of support from manufacturers. 


NOTE THAT BETWEEN 1:00 and 2:00 WE OFTEN TAKE LUNCH AND THUS MAY BE SHORT-STAFFED

Console Repairs are by appointment only. Please come to the store with make and model of your set and we'll put you on the appointment list.

Due to a lack of support, we are no longer servicing Counterpoint or Audio Research Products. 

Because disassembled sets take us longer to diagnose and repair, we assess a $25 surcharge on each disassembled set left for service. Note that its against the law for us to release a set, following service, that isn't "buttoned up"
IF YOU WANT TO CALL US FOR A STATUS UPDATE, PLEASE DO SO AFTER 4:00 PM. EARLIER IN THE DAY WE FOCUS ON FIXING THE GEAR.
PLEASE! - If you're on the console service waiting list, you'll get a call from us when your number is up. Refrain from calling us for a status update. We're spending a good 30-40 minutes a day fielding these status requests. 

On weekdays, though we close at 5:30 PM, our cutoff time
 for accepting a new repair 5:15 PM. On Saturdays, though we close
 at 1:30 PM, our cutoff time for accepting a new repair is 1:15 PM.

California Law mandates that we write up a formal work order
on each set left for repair. Prudent business practices require
a brief inspection of each set before the work order is written.

If it's raining or looks like rain:

Cover your equipment. The slightest amount of water is destructive to your machine. Those that argue with us will be turned away.

OUR ESTIMATE POLICY

We charge $15 - $25 for an examination of each set at the counter while you wait. If you leave the set for repair, this fee is included in the estimate.This fee is due and payable regardless of whether you agree with our findings.

If you can't wait, or if the failure needs a closer look, we take your set in on a diagnosis (usually $50 to $75). This fee will be included in your estimate. (We don't "piggyback" the while-you-wait fee with the diagnosis. Its one or the other.


Often, we can fix your set while you wait. Typically this runs $30 - $75 plus parts.

On ALL sets left for repair, we collect a Minimum Service Charge in advance (usually $50 to $75). This fee is non-refundable. All sets are formally invoiced. 

We do not allow "Drop and run"

Please see our revised pricing policy for more information about repair costs.
