BEFORE YOU SCROLL DOWN THIS PAGE TO OUR MANUALS LIST BELOW.

This site is partially supported by ad revenue. If you follow any of those links and end up acquiring a manual, it will not be from us. Here is why we may deserve your business...

We love our Vintage Audio and other built-to-last electronics equipment in an age of disposable products for a throw-away society. We might sell the kids before our classic silver Pioneer or Vintage Marantz, Kenwood and Sansui gear. If you also value High Quality Manuals that enhance the ownership satisfaction of your vintage audio treasures, you found the right place. (continued below...)

Quality is not a buzzword.

Korg Service Manuals User Manuals Printed Reproductions



(... continued) It matters to us that you can actually read the service manuals and schematics because poor quality technical documentation literature and repair manuals are almost worse than none. We are meticulous and give genuine best efforts to produce clean, well-constructed manuals for you. A side-by-side comparison of our reproduction manuals with those from many other vendors will usually reveal an overall better appearance, construction, and print quality. Sometimes strikingly so. Our Customer Comments page is a fraction of what we receive from real customers and electronics technicians.

The vast majority of our printed reproduction manuals are Very Good to Excellent on our Guaranteed Quality Ratings scale. But every single item is not and we refuse to give a false impression that they are. We want you to see a detailed description and individually-assigned quality rating before you purchase. This time-consuming extra service is almost never provided by our competitors. Customer complaints are nearly zero, perhaps one per 500-1000 sales. We believe that virtually none of our competitors could truthfully make a similar claim.

We are a USA based family business operating old-school style. That means real people trying to serve you as if we were a walk-in store in your local neighborhood. We always combine shipping on multiple-item orders and do not rip you off on shipping charges. If interested, check out About Our Manuals and other site sections with the menu links at the top of all pages. If you would like for us to be here in the future, you can help by telling your friends and by sharing links to our site in your discussion groups, forums, blogs and web sites.


Pay Attention to this area
You are in the printed REPRODUCTION MANUALS CATALOG section of our site. We have been slowly updating these manuals lists over the years. As time allows we will replace the spare Factory ORIGINAL Manuals Catalog section with the same page format as these here in the reproduction manuals section. We also have more than 400 Gigabytes of various manuals, schematics, brochures, etc in (mostly) PDF format. They number perhaps 400,000 files. Truth is that we may never get them listed on our site. But they are available. Click here for further PDF manuals informatiion.
