Welcome to my redesigned website

NOTE:  After many years of rebuilding vintage tube gear I have stopped taking on any new repair and restoration jobs to focus entirely on production of custom tube line stages, phono stages and my KT88 power amp.  I may do some more vintage work in the future, but for now I am only building custom pieces.  The good news is that Jim McShane has found a new tech to take on the restoration of the citation tube equipment.  Email Jim and he can provide contact info for you. I am Don Sachs, and for over seven years I have been Jim McShane’ s authorized tech/installer.  During this time I have restored close to 80 Citation II amplifiers, about 50 Citation I preamps, 6 Citation V amplifiers, 3 Citation IV preamps, several Citation IIIx tuners, and numerous Award Series integrated amps and receivers.  I have also restored numerous tube integrated amps, power amps, preamps, and receivers by Fisher, Scott, Sherwood, McIntosh, Eico, Lafayette, Sansui, Heathkit, Knight, Bogen, and others.  Too many to count.  All restorations of Citation gear are done exclusively with Jim's parts and kits. You may read about all the McShane upgrades to the Citation gear on his website. On this site you can read about some of the services I offer and the associated costs.  These are guidelines.  Every piece is different and the price can vary a bit depending on the level of restoration or additional options or customer preferences.  The services page contains links to the gear I specialize in.  I now produce new custom tube line stages, phono stages, and power ampsQuite frankly, in all my years of restoring vintage gear, these are among the best I have ever heard!  Check out the for sale page for any gear that I might have available for purchase.  The gallery has some photos of pieces I have worked on in the past few years.
