Warm Audio WA-73EQ Repair UK anyone?

Postby Flat Paper Puppet » Sat Feb 27, 2021 8:56 pm

Hi folks!

I’m in the UK and unfortunately a second hand WA73EQ I bought (in great condition btw) has developed a problem after about a year of use

Obviously I’m not covered by anything with this

I’d there anyone I should be contacting that could have a look at it in the Uk at a good price?

There’s what I always thought was the sound of a leaky cap, but I’ve since learned that may not be tje sound I think it is. Anyway, the LED meter comes on without any signal after powered up for a time and there are popping abd squeezing noises as well as “surfy” hiss. All in the background but obviously no good.

Any suggestions most welcome!

Thanks guys

Yes, but Warm Audio is based in the USA - long way to send it for repair...

True, but they might have advice on where to get it repaired in the UK.
