Earlier on I had sent in a tube pre amp to one of the local tech for repair. Though it was repaired but the tech was unable to resolve the hum and lack of high frequency issues. I ‘cold storage’ the amp for some time but recently I managed to dig out through xtremeplace Mr Chan’s contact. On this note, thank you XP for this wonderful forum on the wealth of information available for us.
I texted Mr Chan and arranged a date to meet up with him after the CB period. Within hours of meeting up, Mr Chan texted back on the repair cost (which was lower than what I paid for the earlier repair) asking whether I would like to proceed for the repair. Of cos I said OK, let’s do it.

It was completed in less than 5 days and now the preamp sounds good. No hum and all the highs are there. In todays’ use and discard age, it’s a blessing that Mr Chan with his decades of tube hifi repair experience is still out there helping local audiophiles with their problems. Best of all his charges are very reasonable.  ;)

A shout-out to Mr. Chan.
My vintage Audio Research Preamp no sound at left channel.
Delivered the preamp to him on Tuesday to fix and also request to service the preamp, and it was all done by Friday.
Invited also to listen to his DIY speakers and tube amp monoblocks, simple but very nice sounding.
Also learn from him on how to check tubes on the circuit, really enjoyful evening.
