I am looking for the best tech who knows old school amps very well(especially Orion and US Amps...but also Alpine,PG,etc.)
Any good references appreciated.

I've had good luck with Ontario Audio Video. Rick is the guy to ask for. 905-791-2020

He just finished my 2 Luxman M-05 amps and they work perfectly.

The Gentleman who designed most of Soundstream's good stuff has posted on the DIYMobileAudio forums about doing repairs and restoration; his name is Wade Stewart and his username is Ace956. I believe he also did repairs of non-SS gear.

Steve Mantz of Zed Audio designed most of the US Amps you mention, as well as many other classics. He advertises amp restoration on his website:

Soundsmith also does vintage repairs. I've had a few cartridges rebuilt by Peter and have never been dissapointed.

Hi guys
Yea Rick is out of Car Audio altogether.I am talking the 1990-1998 series of car amps as they will be at the age of bad caps,etc.I will bench test as soon as I get my power supply but looking for a pro.
Yes Steve Mantz does alot but California!! I figured we would have a guru somewhere in Canada.
Wade Stewart(Ace 956)...Interesting.THANKS.
I dont know Soundsmith....cartridge sounds phono to me?
Its that time of year so I need someone I can trust.

PM me. My good friend was the technician for unlimited sight and sound and repaired more then his fair share of HCCA Orion amps and PG high current amps as well. I'll see if he's in the mood to perhaps tackle some for old times sake.
