I have a Sansui 1000 that was completely restored about 18 months ago and sounded glorious. It did have a slight hum to it, however, that a friend of mine felt was louder than it should be and convinced me to have it looked at. The hum was subtle, but there and I just chalked it up to a tube amp humming a bit... I took it to a local tech to look at and when I got it back, one of the channels started cutting in and out. Now one channel is strong and the other is just really weak, barely any sound coming out of it. I'm not sure what happened but I do know I love this thing and want it repaired. That's is what brings me to my issue, I'm having a difficult time finding anyone in Austin, TX who has the unique skill set to work on this. I'm getting the "Sorry but I don't work on those receivers" from some local techs. I travel for work and can bring this to a competent tech in the greater Dallas, Houston, or San Antonio area also. Anyone run across this issue before? Anyone have a guess as to what may be going on? Anyone know of a tech in Texas who could repair this for me? Thank you for the help, it is greatly appreciated!
