Correct me if I’m wrong but my impression from reading the forum was that
Bob Carver's Audio Service would repair/restore your equipment to factory specs (factory parts or equivalent) with a possibility of getting Bob to sign your equipment.
Hi-Tech Audio, Ltd would repair/restore your equipment to factory specs (factory parts or equivalent) or for an extra fee upgrade your equipment with better parts and upgraded capacitors.
Does Bob Carver's Audio Service offer the types of equipment upgrades that Hi-Tech Audio, Ltd will? I would really like to know as I want to get some equipment repaired when funding becomes available and while Bob’s signature on my equipment would be cool I think I would prefer and equipment upgrade.
