    Depends what needs to be repaired... HiTech Audio does their electronics... Don't know about the subs... Maybe Sunfire?

    If you need someone I can vouch for HiTech Audio that was mentioned.They rebuilt my 400x5 from bottom up last year and its fantastic workmanship.F1 turned me on to them and they are a pleasure to work with.

    When I had a C19 Roland did some work to it and did a great job. He also did some upgrading to my current amp Sunfire Sig II. I will say it was a big difference between in the mid and high end when he was done. He does great work!

    I have one of the Carver CD players. Is Hitech the place to send it? The problem with it last time I tried to use it was it would not open the tray. It's a button issue bc the tray will open just not with the button.

    I thought that was a known issue for the carver cd players. You sure its not the belt that opens up the tray? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FngAg3mk2Ug

    Here is a utube video how to help a cd player tray.

    BTW do you have one of the tube carver cd players?

    I will be hand carrying my Sunfire Cinema Grand to Hitech on my trip to visit family in Portland this September.
    Rear channels took a crap and the lamp gave up the ghost.
    Until then, we were a rocking with it.
    Thanks for the tip about Hitech.
    I have emailed and set up a meet.
