Preamp and/or speaker repairer recommendations needed

Hello everyone!

A couple of issues have developed with my Audio Synthesis Passion 8M preamp/phono stage. I was able to contact David Heaton for a while after the company ceased trading, but he’s no longer answering any emails. Can anyone recommend somebody to take a look at it for me?

I also have a pair of Spendor SP7/1 speakers that have bass units producing no bass. There is evidence online to suggest that this is a fairly common issue with old Spendors and I wondered if new surrounds might rectify the issue. I’ve been trying to contact Wembley Loudspeakers to no avail. Anyone know of anybody else I could try?


Whereabouts are you?

N. London

I know a great guy but he’s in Tipton, W.mids.

Would that be for the preamp or bass drive units? Or both?

Is that Alan FB?

Yes was trying to think where he was. He did the transformers on those Marantz mono blocks

They are still showing as being open

Also maybe Paul at Loudspeaker Services | Reference Fidelity Components for the speakers?

Yeah, but he isn’t responding to emails or phone calls. I spoke to him a few months back and he said he was in the process of moving premises and to call back in a month or two. I’ve tried countless times.

Thanks, I know others claim to have had really good experiences with him, but my one and only dealing with him left a lasting impression and it wasn’t a good one.

Might try him.

Maybe ring Lockwood audio about the speakers. I know they do tannoys,but might be able to advise where to go
