Need Service documentation to fix that old turntable, or amplifier, or tuner/receiver? In the old days, we used to buy things that were made with quality. Most were designed to be be repaired when something goes wrong with them. Sometimes, it really is fun and satisfying to repair an old classic that is solidly built and that has plenty of life left to it. The alternative is to send them to the landfill in favor of newer, cheaper, lighter, disposable electronics.... you know the kind: use until they break, then toss/replace sort. But those cheap cheesy plastic buttons really are no substitute when you compare them to the feel of solid real metal faceplates, solid carved knobs and switch covers and tuning knobs that float silky smooth. They used to make electronics like jewelry. Some really were pieces of art. Today, with few exceptions, they all look the same or very similar. Hard to tell the difference from one brand to the next if there were no labels on them, isn't it?
How AnalogAlley can help: We sell service manuals, technical bulletins, technical manuals, some owner's manuals, datasheets, etc. These products are essential to provide you the informational tools necessary to disassemble that receiver with hidden fasteners, rebelt that cassette deck, adjust or repair that convergence issue plaguing your big screen projection TV, or to realign that out of wack tuner/receiver. Or maybe a resistor melted and you can't make out the color code? Don't forget those zener diodes that seem to break but have no markings identifying itself? How will you replace those without a comprehensive parts list?
Our manuals are not FREE. We are a small business and as such, there is a significant cost to operate the business and make our archives/library available to you and others like you. The cost of our manuals is a small price to pay to be able to restore that beloved electronics of yours. When considering a purchase and our pricing, please keep this in mind. In truth, the revenues from our sales barely cover the cost to operate the business. Our labor is largely donated at this time to continue to make this library/archives available. We don't carry every manual, but we do have one of the largest libraries around. Also, while you might be able to find some "free" manuals on the web, the quality of those can be hit/miss. Often times, the free manuals are put together so sloppily and with such poor resolution to be practically useless for repair purposes. Diagrams are often windowed (mozaic'd). Some websites make it appear that you will receive a free downloadable product when in fact, all they do is make you navigate around their site and maybe click on one of their advertisements. Some will download spyware or viruses to your computer. When you tire of those products and want a manual where readability is uncompromised, come back and try us. Our scanned manuals are the very best quality on the web. We scan all of our manuals in-house from ORIGINAL manuals (not photocopies). We sell PDF's, Original Manuals, Reproduction printed manuals... we even rent some manuals.
