Digital Hardware  "Cedar Audio" duo declickle & dehiss noise reduction and BRX de-buzzer rack mount units for processing are used. 



Repairs  to damaged records & audio cassettes, 8 - track cartridges etc, can be salvaged prior to transfer.


Open reel tapes  that are severely damaged and have suffered from deterioration over the years, can be baked, spliced, edited and restored. Every effort is made to remedy the imperfections of original material.
