Although I have no first hand experience with Music Technology, they are pretty well known and come highly recommended from Conrad Johnson users. Bill is an ex-CJ employee and pretty much the man for upgrades and repairs on the east coast.

So, Steve, who is Mike?  The former CJ employee that is the go to guy on the east coast?  I have a friend with an Otari who needs his deck serviced... he is in Atlanta, but maybe would ship his 5050...

Hey Phil,
I was actually talking about Bill Thalman (sp?). He is pretty well know for working on Conrad Johnson amps/preamps.
I'm sure if your buddy beats the bushes a reel to reel tech will scurry out in Atlanta.
I used to live there and there were some pretty big recording studios down there. Not that far from there, Nashville will certainly have several.
Maybe Romo could help you there.

Vark Audio in cabin john, md (10min away from dc) does great work too.  the guy to talk to is Evan.  he's now servicing my sony apr5003 2trk and next is my studer a80 2trk.  he knows his stuff.  hes restored a couple of my ampex 350/351 channels too.  he also works a lot on nagras.

I can't recomend this company. They charge too much for simple repairs. $75 deposit for each item. $120 a hours? Really? Cost me $800 for 4 turntables. Quality of work is nothing to rave about!

Since this forum is about tape recorders I'm not that sharing your experience in having turntables serviced is particularly relevant. Your post is a little sparse on details.
