Where's the best place to get my DA-30mkii repaired in LA?
I have a monster DAT transfer project to do and my DA-30mkii is giving me the ole Error 1. It takes in the tape, chews on it for awhile and then gives the error. Something funky in the transport mechanism.
I was somewhat torn about getting it fixed since DATs aren't worth poop anymore, but the DATs are outtakes from old Peter Gabriel, Jeff Beck, Youssou N'dour, etc sessions, so its cool stuff and the guy I'm doing it for is obviously a heavy cat, so its good business.
Where should I take it? I've used Advanced Musical Electronics in the past, but wasn't super thrilled with their customer service. If they're the best place, I'll go there, but if someone has a better suggestion I'd love to hear it.
