So, is anyone doing repairs on legacy kit? (such as DSP33's)? I'd like to have some work done, but I've no idea who to talk to?

Does HQ even do legacy repairs anymore, and if so, would it be at a reasonable price?

Does anyone else do repair work in the UK?

May be worth saying what is not working and what you have tried.

Eg. reflash firmware, checked comms cables, used reset plug and reconfigured.

Hi,

You could try John at JS Audio Repairs, I'm told he has many years of experience on repairing high end HiFi.

Regards,
Carl

There was a whole thread in systems about it a few months ago so a bunch of things have been checked (re-terminated and checked comms cable, yes of reset plug etc), but basically, I have 2 DSP33's which will not become master, and one which has a bit of a crackle.

I have 3 DSP33's so I do have a working system but I'm considering selling my M gear to fund a new lounge system hence wanting to get it fixed to get full value for the 33's.

You'll may find that the cost of the repair won't add the same amount to the value once fixed.

I just wanted to add that I contacted JS Audio who said that they do repair Meridian, but he was going on holiday and wanted me to get back to him in October. I'll let you guys know what transpires.
