I recently had an excellent experience with Jov, who is a CAM member along with being a technical contributor to the Tuner Information Center website. I came across Jov while perusing an ad that he had placed on CAM for a modded Kenwood tuner. I didn't buy the Kenwood, but after contact and learning of his passion and expertise, I did send to him a clean 1980 Akai AT-K03 that I like. Jov is heavily invested in the proper equipment to measure and analyze, and to perform professional alignments etc. He replaced about 3 dozen components, and also performed a number of mods to enhance the Akai's sound quality. During the process, he sent via e-mail, electronic graphs of the Akai's performance, illustrating before and after mods for stereo frequency, separation, and THD plus noise. His communication throughout the process was exemplary.

I received the Akai back earlier this week, expert packaged. The result? Outstanding! Everything I liked about the Akai's sound has been enhanced and improved upon. It is more open sounding, more transparent with nice levels of detail, and quieter. It also sounds bigger in it's stage, and is just a more relaxed, natural sounding listen. The tuner sounds excellent.

For those tuner affectionados wondering where to have their tuners professionally serviced, and/or for those who would like to have their tuners modded for improved performance, look to Jov in B.C. You will receive tremendous value for the work performed, and it will be done right.

PM me, and will send along his contact information.

Good to hear of positive experiences. What does he charge for an hourly rate? Will he work on all tuners?

I have had good experiences here in Ontario with Ontario Audio Video Service in Brampton and Parts Connexion in Burlington.
