"Was about to throw away what I did not know to be pretty valuable speakers. TSP was able to clean up the cabinets and replace the grill cloth and rotting foam edge on the woofers....Wow...what a difference."

I discovered The Speaker Port while crawling around the Craigslist electronics section one day, searching for a receiver to keep me going while I found someone to service my beloved Yamah CA-2020 integrated amp. I’ve gotten so exasperated with the city’s low-quality audio service shops that I’ve been living with equipment in dire need of service. Though it was a 47 miles from me, I never regretted making the trip. Since that first repair, The Speaker Port has helped me select and restore two sets of vintage speakers and several receivers and amplifiers. I now feel that I have a trusted resource and, dare I say, partner in any future audio/video undertakings. Their passion for the preservation and restoration of both vintage and modern equipment coupled with an exemplary attention to detail and thoughtful service has made me a huge fan. I intend to darken their door with every need — both big and small —for years to come!
For as long as I can remember, music and technology has been, well, an obsession of sort. I have always been fascinated with understanding how things worked and I absolutely loved working with my hands. This passion was the motivation for me getting my degree in Electrical Engineering from Michigan State University. I spent most of my profession career working as an Engineering Manager for Corporate IT environments. That helped me hone my skills in methodical problem solving, critical thinking, organizational and leadership. Through it all, the love of music and commitment to electronics that reproduce it has remained strong. I created The Speaker Port so that I can share this passion with others. Through my extensive experience, creativity and attention to detail, you can expect a serious commitment to helping your preserve and protect the investments you've made in sound. Lets talk...if it is important to you....then it is important to me!
