COMPETITION - BELIEVED TO BE THE ONLY HI-FI REPAIRER
IN THE COUNTRY OF ITS KIND
certainly London's greatest!
September 2012, Mike Solomons clocked up 45 years professionally repairing
hi-fi and audio equipment. Originally under the name Radio and
Hi Fi Service, this business became London Sound in 1969, the name was registered
in that year and has gone from strength to strength ever since! As
a warning to those too feeble to think up a unique name for their businesses,
the title London Sound is also our Trade Mark and copyright is claimed.
other notable dates:-
19th 2014, London Sound was 45 years old. Also, on January
23rd 2015, we celebrated 25 years at our present freehold high street shop
your equipment sounds wrong - come to London Sound - if we can, we'll mend it!
If not we'll advise. We do not sell new equipment, and very rarely sell
secondhand, so if we advise you to buy new, there's no profit motive!
Sound was established and registered in December 1969 by Mike Solomons, although
the business was founded in 1967.

do we do here at London Sound?
mend, service, repair, overhaul audio and hi-fi equipment. We
do not offer "quick fixes", neither are we a dealer or retailer trying
to sell you something new. We just put things right, make them work, and
if possible, we make them work like new. This can range from vintage wireless
receivers from the 1930's, right up to some of the finest of modern hi-fi equipment.
We do not normally work on equipment less than twenty five years old as if it
is good equipment, but failed that quickly, you can reasonably expect the manufacturers
to carry out a free or very inexpensive repair. But if they refuse, please ask
happily repair amplifiers, receivers, cassette decks, loudspeakers, record decks,
tape recorders, (reel to reel), tuners, tuner-amplifiers, and some other hi-fi,
stereo, and even mono items.
repairs are guaranteed for 12 months, in writing, (except for repairs carried
out free of charge). Full details of the service are found on the repairs
page, but in brief, all of our estimates are free, and we can often give a
guide price by email, (firstname.lastname@example.org), or go to basic
details page for more information). Please note, as explained in more
detail on the repairs page, the guarantee covers the
equipment, not just the repairs carried out - almost the same as buying new!
us for advice - a few pence spent on the 'phone may save you hundreds spent on
a repair so can certainly be worthwhile - details below:

advice, please email email@example.com, or ring Mike Solomons on 020 8868 9222.

operate the Keith Monks vinyl record cleaning service using the cleaning machine
shown to the right.
you look closely at the photograph, it will become obvious that this is an old
machine - we have offered this service, using this machine, since 1975! It has
required servicing from time to time, but basically is, in our view, easily the
best record cleaning machine available anywhere, at any price! And at this age,
what a wonderful testament to the quality of manufacture, especially, if you consider
that when London Sound purchased it in 1975 - it was second hand!
