Default High end hifi tuner alignment service wanted

Does anyone know of any highly capable, trustworthy, well recommended (pause for breath) technicians who are able to work on and align high end, fiendishly complicated FM HiFi tuners such as the Tandberg 3011a, Pioneer TX-9800, Onkyo 9090II etc etc? Obviously being midlands based that would be a preference, but we do have a postal and courier service in this country

Such people probably feature on the 'tuner information center' website, if you seek to find a specialist, but it all seems rather US-centric, or should that be US-centeric?

On the other hand, I wouldn't say that 'supertuners' are any harder to restore than, say, doing a Quad properly. Anyone competent who can be trusted to go the whole way through it ought to be fine, but any fair hourly rate will be the killer.

I have had a few very nice responses and offers from members to undertake this work. Can I reiterate, these tuners are not straightforward FM tuners by any stretch of imagination. The tuners mentioned have complex, interactive tuning circuitry and features that provide for cutting edge performance. I myself have FM tuning alignment equipment, but for the reasons mentioned I would not attempt to work on these tuners whereas I would on more straightforward ones. Not just that but they are also complex and difficult to work on mechanically. For these reasons I'm on the lookout for someone who tackles such cutting edge tuners on a regular basis and demonstrably has the experience and ability to do so. When they're done, I want to be totally sure that they're performing at the limits of their specification, not just tuning in 'good', as they do now. Cheers.
