Get your classic British NAIM NAP 135 or 250 Power Amplifier fully Restored & Repaired. This service includes ALL repairs and a complete Restoration of your prized NAIM power amplifier. Our ambition is to make your amplifier run trouble-free for another 40+ years.
What's the difference between a Repair and a Restoration? This results in an audio imbalance, where the repaired audio channel will now sound different.
By sending your unit to us, you can rest assured that both channels are properly upgraded using matched components (for both audio channels). Our service includes a replacement of ALL varied and aged components at no extra cost (no hidden charges). What you get back is an "Ethically-Restored" unit. List of work done in this Repair & Restoration service.
Perform all required repairs on the unit to get it working again. New power switch light bulb (LED) installed. Replace both Power Capacitors , using long life High Quality Capacitors, increasing total Power capacitance from 30,000uf to 44,000uf for an amazing improvement in Audio definition.

If the current set of Rubber feet are worn out, we will replace them with a new set of superior Thermoplastic feet at no extra charge. What is excluded in this service? We do NOT deviate from the original Amplifier circuits (no experimentation, unless requested) and replace components with a verified and tested Component configuration especially catered to make your Amplifier sound GREAT. All replaced Components are of a Higher Audio Quality (there have been huge improvements in Audio Component quality since the 1980's). The Surgery we perform is of extremely high quality, using the best repair equipment in the world (Metcal, HP, FLUKE, TEKTRONICS, HAKKO equipment). This offer is for Amplifier owners in the USA (contiguous states), CANADA and Europe only. Restoration time is typically between 4 - 6 weeks.
While repair shops hide their repairs, we display our restorations openly for all to view. Since we perform these restorations as a Hobby, we can afford the extra time required to make sure that everything works perfectly. Here are some samples for your enjoyment.
