Welcome to Telegraph-Hill Audio.
I do restorations & repairs of Audio Equipment since I was 7 years old. My wish was to start apprenticeship in a Radio-Shop. But as always it came different and I started a career with IBM Computer equipment. I did stay in the computer business for many years to come.  But in 2013 as I'm here in Totnes / UK  I'm going back the time line and restoring and repairing all sorts of audio reproduction equipment. From Dansette Record players, Radiograms, Music boxes, Classic British Hifi Equipment, 60s valve Guitar Amps, Speakers, Studio Reel to Reel machines, Effects, Mixing desks  to more modern Hifi repairs.  Unfortunately (for my kitty) I do a little bit more than reqired to make just the job done. It's not a job for me, it is  fun and my meditation.

As you can see from my home page I have wide spread knowledge and Interests and a new challenge are more than welcome. Therefor my workshop bursts at the seams (as we would say in German).   But  repairing or restauring stuff is my personal meditation. I will make sure your equipment will survive and you can pass it over to the next Generation.

I am still busy in 2023 and every new repair comes from word of mouth.

Here are now some Pictures of equipment I did repair or restored and the story behind.

Sometimes it is fun to play with LED's Timeless Design and very rare.Build in 2020There is absolutely no doubt they will survive for the next 50 years. I love Nxxie. This one went to a collector in California. You may see the reason this cannoit be repaired with any contact spray anymore. I put a new Power amp inside as the all of the original Germanium Transistors died from Tin Whisker. First Digital Mixing Console from Yamaha and used once a week for my Radio Show.With Bluetooth ,of course. Went to a good friend of mine. Seems still to work strong. SME 3000 series, a classic tonearm and still high in demant. Bluetooth Conversion Project to 10 old Hacker radios.  Last of the Revox Tube Recorders. Does sound a touch warmer than Revox.  Jim use it with pride. one odf 10 Hacker conversions to bluetooth and lightThey spin and spin with belt drive. THe old idler wheel system will fail with high humidityContacts are alowed to be greased with a special product. Anti Scating adjustment with special test recordNew scale and a nightmare to repair if you do not have the experience.  Went back to it's proud owner and given to the next Generation. This one shows, that gainclone boards can soundAt least they are able to make Music again. The bluetooth versions of my Hackers don't need high amplificationThis jukebox had a long and hard life. But prices are going up steep.So nice in White.After I had my first one I stopped for searching anything better. And for my Radio shows I can make it autostart in 2 Seconds And IMHO one of the best looking Players ever.You cannot get any warmer sound. Analytics listen to something else. There is a good supporting Community outside. Mid 70th Yamaha Amps are build like a tank. But if the switches are going scatchy you have to spend quite some time for cleaning.Easy to repair without SMDThe brush is made out of Horse Hair. 16x16 potentiometers in total. Happy adjustment. Retro Hifi in Suzans lounge. ~German TAB Studio Tube Pre-Amplifier and Leak StereoTube Stereo Radios are high in demand.

As additional HeatingPlease polish the cuttlery .. and the record playerThe Hydraulic fluid is also used to silence loud differentials in old cars Yamaha CA-810The DJ Deck of the 70th. But Laurie is happy now :-)Frank is the new owner.I do clean all kind of knobs with my ultrasonic bath.~A nice looking machine with self made brushed aluminium Frame around the wood. This one needs 10-15 min to get warm and to full speed. And again, they do harden with the time. Nobody will store it in a loft anymore. THe Aluminium underneath the plexy is coroding and destroys the golden print.Not service friendly. No wonder most of them landed on the tip. I love the knobs. Nothing is more retro.The Motor stops working, the mechanic is full of hardened greese and a new stylus or retipping costs a fortune. Contact greese on the inner Ring. The carbon however usually cleans itself just by turning the knob a couple of times. Very time consuming. A shame you cannot see it from the outside.First Test after repair and It sounds beautifulInside a Mission Cyrus II. Boring to look at and to listen to.~Is looking forward to get a new life, ~I bought it with the intention to do the wiring right this time.Roland Space Echo heads.
