I have a 35 year old NAD 7140 stereo receiver which I used

Customer Question

I have a 35 year old NAD 7140 stereo receiver which I used with similar vintage Snell Acoustics speakers. Sound stopped a couple months ago. I tried the speakers with another receiver and they worked so I assume it's the receiver. Lights go on when I power it up but no audio. Is there somewhere I can take the NAD receiver, which I love, to be tested, short of driving to Boston? Or can I ship it somewhere? L

Hello , my name is Jack

Perhaps i can help you with this

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

Those NADs were beautiful units but yes this model it is getting old and you will need to find an lder tech. (like me) to work on this .

What i would suggest first would be to contact NAD USA at this number 1-***-***-**** and see if there are service centers near you .

You probably will have to ship it out though .

For local repair shops that may take a look at it , let me have your zip code ?
