Calrec DF1625 & DL1656 servicing

Anyone knows where I can go to to get our Calrec compressors (4 of each, all 8 in one rack) serviced? They're still okay, but we'd like to give them a yearly ckeckup, like we do with all the other gear.
Due to the weight and size of the rack it would be great to find someone not too far from here (Brussels).

Thanks All,

I presume the UK is too far from Brussels?
I am planning to check out some DL1656 next week.
I think most of the caps are tantalum which do not need changing, so you could just replace the electrolytics and be done with it. Unless you have changed the VCA chips or components in an inout stage readjustment is not really necessary.

ok just looked at a unit.
There are 8 electrolytics, 2 big reservoirs and 6 little ones.
Change then all for new items but do not change the capacitance value of the 6 small ones particularly.
The reimpots are factory fixed and do not need adjustment unless components in their vicinity are changed. There are 2 distortion trims and some common mode trims for the input (resistive and capacitive). Others are to adjust the metering.
