Turntables & Record Players – Servicing & Repairs

Even if you take great care of your record player, many setups may still require a service or need replacement parts at some point. Parts like the stylus and the belt naturally wear out, and the old oils and lubricants can degrade over time.

So if you’re dusting down your record collection and you discover your turntable needs a service or is in need of a repair, then get in touch and speak with an engineer… our workshop is based in Kidlington, just north of Oxford. Phone us at the workshop on 01865 375834, and speak with an engineer.

TECHNICS SL-1200 / 1210

Built like tanks, the Technics 1200/1210 series turntable has been a firm DJ favourite since it first appeared in the early 70s. And with the re-introduction of this classic, it’s a great time to ensure your original equipment is in top shape.

We stock a number of original TECHNICS replacement parts, and so use genuine parts whenever possible (a number of which are available from our online shop should you wish to replace them yourself) Fortunately Panasonic produced replacement parts for many years, although these are now becoming scarce. For parts which are no-longer available, we look for the best alternatives available.
