    Default Has anyone heard from Richard at Vantage Audio lately?

    Hi,

    I have been trying to get hold of Richard for a month (he is repairing something for me) without success.

    Has anyone heard from him lately? I'm a bit concerned to see if he is OK.

    Cheers,

    Aidan

    Had a message from his son not long back that Richard has had some family health issues to deal with and they shut the office at short notice but expect to open up again after 04/06/12. Gist of message is that he should be back on track in June and will get the backlog sorted and is really sorry for this.

    Hi Theo & nice to see another Trio L-07D user. How's your one going? Don't think there is much out there to beat them for performance. Had a few mods and upgrades done over the years. Sorry for thread drift.

    TBH Richard is a top bloke but he is a bit like me, he takes on too much! He visited me a while ago with his son and his knowledge of TT's is astonishing. Especially the Techy. I gave him my platter to bond a copper layer on and it came back looking like new, astounding was the word I would use. Took a while to get it done but I always say anything worthwhile is worth waiting for.

    Just to resurrect this thread, I cannot get hold of Richard at all again.

    I managed to get through to him on the phone just after the Jubilee, and told that my Accuphase would be fixed ASAP.

    Since then over two months have passed without contact and despite trying almost daily for the last several weeks, I have been unable to reach him.

    It has now been more than a year that my preamp has been at Vantage. I would like to chalk this down to experience and get it back now in whatever state it is in - if anyone could supply me with alternative contact details for Ricahrd by PM, or pass on this message if you are in contact with him, I would much appreciate it.

    Cheers.

    Aidan, Chris@Panteg has had dealings with Vantage and I gather he is quite friendly with Richard (he's on this forum) why not pm him for info?

    For what its worth, I sent off two emails to Richard but never got replies, that was some time ago.
