Breath New Life into your LA-2A or ADL1000

Did you know that the heart of your ADL1000 and the LA-2A has a timed life?  After 2000 hours of getting bombarded with program material the electroluminescent element, the heart of these compressors, loose half their original brilliance.  The causes gain reduction capability to fall off dramatically with use.  Vacuum tubes will deliver more hours but they tend to get noisy over time.  A vacuum tube can actually get so noisy it becomes a crude condenser microphone (becomes microphonic).  Old coupling and bypass capacitors add unwanted distortion and the power supply can add 60hz hum to the noise floor.          

If your LA-2A or ADL1000 doesn't perform like it used to why not refurbish it?   Vacuum tube equipment holds its value, and is well worth the investment. You can get our mod applied to your unit at the same time as the refurb and save shipping.

Our refurbishment includes new low noise tubes, meter light, new electrolytic caps, and a new electroluminescent element.  Other non electrolytic capacitor types (coupling and bypass) are replaced as indicated by testing and age.  For the LA-2A this refurbishment offer includes replacement of the electroluminescent element, not the entire T4.  If you want the T4 changed out or a complete electrolytic recap of the unit contact us before purchasing this post for an add-on quote. 

We test our finished work for S/N ratio, harmonic distortion content, gain reduction, and band pass.  Most of the time the above described refurbishment addresses all of the problems.  This refurbishment service will correct most minor problems at no extra charge but it does not include repairs of components that are normally maintenance free such as physical damage to the case, damaged, open, or shorted transformers, sockets, or meter.  This service offering brings a unit that passes audio but is out of specification back into specification and is confined to replacement of consumable parts which degrade over time.  If other repairs are required as evidenced by our tests or inspection you will be contacted with an evaluation and estimate.

You can also change the gain reduction equalization and amount for the ADL1000 at the same time by purchasing our modification service offering.  Please check our ADL 1000 Mod service store listing for details.  If you elect to do the refurbishment and the modification per our other posting together you can save on shipping. There are no recommended modifications for an LA-2A.

To initiate the service please pay the fee of this posting and obtain an RA number and shipping address from us.  Please insure your shipment as any damage in transit is the responsibility of the shipper, not us.  Your unit will be returned insured.
