    Arkless Electronics Trade: Amp design and repairs.

    I had a PM a few days ago asking if I still do repairs:eek: Very much so! Here's a synopsis of services offered:

    First of all I'm a specialist in analogue equipment so I don't touch CD players, DAC's, streamers etc. I do build and repair linear PSU's for these.

    I specialise in phono stages, head amps, pre amps, power amps, headphone amps and power supplies, ancient and modern, solid state and valved.

    I do repairs, rebuilds, re-capping, modifications and kit debugging to all brands.

    Some examples:

    Rebuilding of vintage valve amplifiers such as Leak, Quad, Radford, McIntosh, Beam Echo, RCA etc to better than new standard.

    Repairs and rebuilds to more modern valve amps such as Beard, VTL, Audio Innovations, Tube Technology, Jadis, Audio Research etc.

    Repairs, rebuilds, re-capping of vintage Japanese amps and classic solid state gear of other origins such as Sugden, Leak, A&R Cambridge, Quad, Krell, Mark Levinson, Exposure etc.

    Repairs to most modern brands.

    Modifications and improvements such as fitting better op amps and capacitors to phono stages and pre amps, changing input loading on phono stages without user adjustable loading, designing, building and fitting of voltage regulators, installing commercial voltage regulators etc.

    Building of linear power supplies for any application.

    "Weird and wonderful" and "wish list" stuff....

    Want a regulated supply adding to your valve amp?

    Want the phase splitter stage of your Leak Stereo 20 (or whatever) replaced with the Radford topology?

    Want the output stage of your valve pre amp rebuilt to be an improved hybrid stage?

    Want a Quad 303 converted to complementary output stage?

    Want an integrated amp converted into a power amp or pre out/power in sockets adding?

    Want an unusual cable making up?

    Anything you can think of... just ask!

    And there is the Arkless 640P phono stage of course which remains available and excellent VFM.

    I can add Jez's Turbo phono stage is really rather good for the money asked.

    Hi Jez - chanced on a Leak 2000 receiver last week. All seems to function okay. What do you know about these units? Worth a bit of TLC?? Thanks

    Just seen this....

    The tuner section is very good indeed but the amp is awful. Thin, harsh, grey sounding....
    They are very high tech for the time.
    Usually hardly work when powered up after years of storage and due to muck in switches etc. Lots of pressing the buttons and turning the controls gradually brings in more sources, the other channel etc...

    Hi. I've got a mid 80s Onix OA21 that needs a bit of TLC. One channel or both cut out on power up or input switching. After up to 5 minutes, it works fine.

    Any ideas what might be wrong and how much it might cost to repair?

    I’ve had a few questions for Jez I the past and he’s always been prompt and polite with his replies, he can be busy though-the price of success I suppose!
    Happy to bump this up;)
