Turntables and Accessories

We specialize in helping you get the most from your turntable. We can adjust your piece and give it a check up right at the front counter while you wait for free! Just ask for the turntable spec check. If your turntable needs a belt or a needle we will install it for you right then and there.

If your turn table needs more attention, we can do that too. We have been working on turntables for over 20 years and can repair them all. Older pieces with idler wheels to more modern tables with direct drive.

We stock needles and cartridges for many brands and we are adding to our inventory every day. We are an authorized Grado dealer and we also sell Audio Technica. We even have a limited supply of new old stock idler wheels. We carry a line of phono pre-amps, and record washer kits. Think of Stereo Lab when you think of your turntable needs.

We can repair your Victrola or Grammophone too! Edison cylinder players, crank record players, early AC tables and more. We work with partners to re-spring and re-condition old player motors. Let us help with your 20’s or 30’s era table.

We typically have a couple of turntables, receivers and amps available for sale. These pieces represent a fantastic value for vintage audio enthusiasts. All of our used vintage items have been pro serviced and carry a 30 day warranty.

We service and sell legacy brands such as Pioneer, Marantz, Voice of Music, Sansui, Technics, Bell, Akai, Teac, Sony, Carver, Kenwood and more.

We try to have our higher end gear at the Stereo Lab, but if you are looking for a less expensive or entry level piece, check out our booth at the fabulous Heritage Square Antique Mall on Brice Rd. in Columbus, Ohio.

We specialize in the repair and restoration of console stereos and have vast experience with antique tube radios. We typically keep some of the antique gear in inventory for sale.

Speakers

We are also Columbus Speaker, a brand that has been in central Ohio since 1954. We repair all types of speakers including:

  1. Antique field coil speakers
  2. Modern Hi Fi Speakers
  3. Large PA speakers
  4. Guitar amp speakers

We routinely re-foam and re-cone speakers. A re-cone results in a brand new rebuilt speaker with a new spider, new voice coil and new foam surrounds. A re-foam is simply a new surround. Depending on your needs, either option results in a like new speaker.

We are an authorized Electro Voice service center.

Please note, we cannot fix the digital amps that frequently are a part of modern PA speaker systems. Effective 8/15/19 we are no longer accepting large PA speakers for repair unless they have been removed from the cabinet.
