Hands On Help On Setting Up

You would possibly be surprised to hear that there are a lot of people who have real difficulty in connecting up their gear in the best way. Whilst it may appear phenomenally complicated at the outset, it is actually not too bad. It is also extremely easy to get a set up that works but at the same time to overlook the best way to set up your gear so that you get the most efficient result or just get it to do what you want to do without reconnecting millions of wires.

I have helped set up lots of gear and am forever dabbling in mine to try to get the best configuration so that I don't ever have to repatch a wire, I have learned a great deal about this in my time and some hands on help is often extremely useful. It is very easy to miss obvious points, which lead you to have a complicated signal path with a weird gain structure.

Troubleshooting on site is also much easier than remote. Being able to plug and unplug to isolate a hum can produce a quick resolution of a problem. Whatever, if you want, I'll come along to your place, as long as it's not too far away from my Cambridge base (too far means you will have to pay for a lot of travelling time etc) and try to help you.

Cannot guarantee a solution - it may be a broken piece of kit or wiring fault that cannot be fixed immediately, but I should be able to suggest how to approach it.
