Local Tech for the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill Area?

Post by JMiP »

Are there any techs in North Carolina? I live in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill part of the state, but I'm not afraid to travel about two hours for someone good that won't require a second mortgage on my house.

Tube or solid state?

Solid state. I'm looking to get the recently purchased Harman Kardon A402 restored. It's not in terrible condition, really, but needs work done.

I have a friend there who is in the middle of moving but once he has completed that, he plans to open up shop. Let me point him to this thread.

I would appreciate that.

I would work on it myself, but as I don't have enough experience doing this type of work and I want this to be my forever amp, I want it done right. I have other amps that I can practice on and if I screw something up really badly, oh well, they didn't cost me much anyway.

If you need vintage top-shelf equipment repaired/restored, I can recommend Carmine Cupani, Chief Technical Officer of CT Electronics in Kernersville, NC; that's about an hour and 30 minute drive west from me in Chapel Hill. He's a no-nonsense electrical engineer with many decades of hands-on experience fixing the top shelf and esoteric stuff (including solid state). He's done great work on my Marantz and McIntosh tube gear. Only don't expect a quick turnaround or bargain rates; if you can afford him and his rates, he's one of best around IMO. Contact him at: sales@cteche.com (301) 351-3781.

Good luck and happy listening!
