Sunday, March 18th, 2012

We now offer a service for repairing all models of Mark Levinson™  multimedia power amplifiers found in Lexus cars

They may also be fitted to other models with delux audio pack with  SatNav and Bluetooth™  kit

Common problems are ;

  • NO SOUND – JUST LOW THUMPING NOISE FROM SPEAKERS
  • NO TELEPHONE OR SATNAV FUNCTION
  • LOSS OF ONE OR MORE CHANNELS
  • BLOWS FUSE IN FUSEBOX
  • HIGH PITCH WHITE NOISE FROM SPEAKERS
  • SHUTS OFF INTERMITTENTLY

If you are reading this post then you probably already know how expensive and difficult to source these units are .. main dealer price usually starts at around £1200 plus Vat – we have so far successfully repaired many units with most main dealers using us as an alternative to replacing the unit – the cost is much more reasonable at £285 … this includes return carriage.

RE: Mark Levinson amp – Exceptional Service

Hi Chris

Many thanks for repairing my car stereo. It is now working fine after more than 2 months of trying all over the UK to have it repaired. Best regards   – Geoff

Two technicians here in Ireland refused to work on my Mark Levinson amp. They said that the water damage on the three layers of circuit board could not be fixed. So I took a gamble and sent the amp from Ireland to Chris in Scotland. He not only fixed it but charged me fifty pound less than I expected. A new amp costs 1300 euro. If you have an amp that can’t be fixed then talk to Chris in Sound and Vision because he’s the only one in Europe and the US who could help me. It’s a relief to deal with Professionals. Thanks Chris!
