Where to get some old stereo equipment repaired in San Francisco?
November 20, 2010 8:51 AM   Subscribe

Looking for a place in San Francisco to repair a bookshelf stereo system and a turntable.

Neither of these items are high-end-- one's a decade old Sony bookshelf stereo and the other's an old Technics semi-automatic turntable-- but the repairs seem simple. One of the channels on the stereo is gone, and I'm thinking there's a short in it. And the belt on the turntable seems messed up and perhaps just in need of replacing.

Google and Yelp didn't turn up much-- mostly high-end stuff. I could replace both of these items, of course, but I'd feel better about not throwing the old ones out if they can be fixed. Does anybody know of a shop in San Francisco that still does this sort of thing?

And apologies if this has been asked before-- couldn't figure out a unique search term to get to what I'm looking for.

I think Gene is exactly who I was looking for. Thanks Rhizome!

The Sound Well (which also still does some repairs, apparently), has a list of recommended repair shops on their web site. Gene is on their list, so I guess that's another recommendation for him...
