Examples of dB-r repair work


But First...

A word about our repair techniques:

Some of you may know what this means, some of you may not, and may not care either. When dB-r replaces any parts in your amplifier, we completely remove the bad part from the circuit board, legs and all. Some HACK SHOPS will simply cut the legs off of the bad transistors and solder new transistors onto the leftover legs sticking out of the circuit board. This is VERY GHETTO. And on top of it looking really bad, it doesn't make a good electrical connection either. Solder has a high resistance compared to component leg directly on circuit board trace. Also, lots of times I have seen globs of solder arcing from leg to leg on transistors. And the solder connections breaking due to vibration. There is a reason there is a hole in the circuit board for the legs of the part to go through. It makes a strong, stable, and highly conductive connection for that part. So soldering a new part onto the legs of an old part is just plain stupid. But I have seen it MANY times, particularly on amps that have been worked on by a certain popular repair shop in Houston.

These HACK SHOPS do this because it's quick and dirty. It works, and they send you out the door. And they charge you the same or more than dB-r will charge you. So if you want your amp repaired properly, take a look inside after the repair, if you can point out the parts that have been replaced, then something is wrong. It should all look factory original, everything should match.

You can ship your amp via UPS/USPS/FedEx to dB-r to be repaired. You pay all shipping charges + repair charges, but at least you will know your amp is done right. We will do our best to meet your repair needs.
