I warned a few months ago that Vlad was getting out of vintage audio repair. Now he's really gone and done it! He wouldn't accept my sick Sansui. I was expecting this to happen, but still wasn't ready to accept it.
I took the Sansui somewhere close to me, manned by an old school european guy who runs his own shop. His price was quite reasonable, and the amp sounds great so far. I will try him out at least once more before giving the Seventies Stereo seal of approval, which does for audio repair people what Oprah's recommendation does for authors!
