Merry Christmas,

I did not need any upgrades and/or repairs to my equipment for more than 11 years. I lost contacts with most of the people I used to know in GTA (or they retired).
One that I used to work before are still in business - Parts Connections - I trust them very much but they are a bit expensive.

Can you please recommend me someone that I can trust? Preferably around Port Credit...

Thank you

Welcome back after a decade long hiatus! A bit of a drive but if you can go during the day off-traffic, he's only about 45 minutes from Port Credit, and just a km or so off the highway (Red Hill xpwy). Dan Santoni, he's full time now. Honest, reliable, quick, reasonable. Definitely worth the bit of a drive.

Che Cavolo,

Thank you very much! Actually I was thinking at him. Do not know the man yet... But as you said - I think it is worth the drive.

Happy Holidays!

Dan does all my work also.

He just recapped my Sunfire 300x2 just before Christmas and it sounds amazing!

Absolutely recommend him!

Yup, I send him gear from BC to work on. Worth the shipping to and fro. You might want to consider the Gotham cables that Dan sells. I can hear a coherence that I never did before with other cables. But I digress.

In Port Credit I have used Alpha Electronics
Keith is the repair tech.
I have never had any problems there.
The shop is on Lakeshore near Hurontario.

+1 for Dan!

But if you really don't want to drive that far, I have had a tube amp. serviced/checked up by Noah at amprepairs.ca a couple of years ago and he is pretty reasonable.
