Welcome to Pacific Stereo!

Rebuild Your Stereo Products

Sometimes, you want more than a repair.  You want your vintage gear to both work and look as good as possible, and to be as original as possible.  Pacific Stereo can make that a reality.  Over the years, I have developed multiple techniques to restore gear to as close to original condition as it can be.  This can involve everything from polishing metal, to re-veneering wood surfaces, to repair and camouflage of defects.  While there is no magic (a scratch in a metal part is forever), units can be made to look very, very good.  All units present their own unique challenges.  No two units, even identical models, will require the same service.

This Concept receiver got a full repair and recap, FM and AM alignment and a complete rebuild.  Even the stickers for the capacitors and other components were reproduced and replaced!  The full details (and there are many) of this restore can be seen HERE.

Are you are a tube person?  While I am no longer working on tube units, you might like this Fisher.

This beauty received a complete rebuild, replacement of all high-voltage parts, modifications, power supply repair, capacitor restuffing (gotta keep that original look!), and a full FM and amplifier alignment.  A complete description of this work can be found HERE.

After much thought and consideration, I am no longer offering repair or restoration on Fisher or other tube products, as I have chosen to concentrate on solid-state gear.  However, this was really a fun and interesting restore, so I’ve left it up if you’d like to see it.

I take every set, evaluate it and determine what needs to be done.  When you entrust me with your precious vintage unit you can be assured that it will be treated like it was my very own.  A Pacific Stereo rebuild goes far beyond an ordinary repair.  It’s the ultimate in the hi-fi and music experience.
