UK or Europe servicing for sme 3009 Series 2

Post by Phorize » 20 Jun 2019 06:03

Hello.

I have an early series 2 3009 (sn 3889) that needs new rca plugs and possibly other work given its age.

Unfortunately sme only service the improved versions now. Does anyone know of a decent servicing company in the U.K. or Europe that could get this back to spec?

Well I don't see why it should take a SME "specialist" to do a good job at it. Someone equipped and skill full enough should be most likely capable to do what needs to be done. The classic ridden of the corroded RCA's and a re-wiring if ever (even recabling) only requires fine and clean soldering.

Then if the knife edge bearing "saddle" needs a little sharpening that is indeed another job. And if the horizontal bearing is "rusty" all the same. Hopefully not. Just find any general phono servicing company that look reliable enough to do you a good job there, you should be absolutely safe.

Audio Origami would be the first place I'd enquire about getting it serviced.
