Approved Audio Service, Inc. was one of the few authorized independent
service facilities for California Audio Lab products.
We maintain an inventory of many of the original parts
and manuals for most of the product line, including the CL-10,
CL-5, CL-15, Delta, Aria, Tercet, Alpha, Icon, DX, CL-2500, CL-20, and others. We also service the incomparable CL2500MCA 5 channel power amplifier and the SSP processor.
CAL produced some of the best sounding CD players, DVD players, transports, and D/A converters ever.
We have a few 24/96 upgrade kits available for the Alpha. Please contact us for price and availability. These kits are available only for installation by us, they are not for sale outright. We are no longer offering the power boss upgrades for the Icon series.
From A CAL CL-2500 DVD player owner from New Zealand
"The CAL is back in residence and been running since 9am. FLAWLESSLY!!! BEAUTIFULLY!!! ENVELOPINGLY!!! AWESOMELY!!! thanks to the geeks at 'approveaudio service' USA .. the good zounds are rolling
From a happy owner of an upgraded Alpha:
"Unit received, installed, and played. Satisfaction level high. Unusual combination of improvements. Soundstaging better. Grouped voices more coherent i.e. lyrics more distinct. Also overall tonality much more cordial/warmer. Feel free to quote me as a pleasantly impressed first time customer."
More messages from happy CAL owners:
I received my CAL Icon last Friday and it was like Christmas morning. I
hadn't realized what I had been missing. I had bought a XXXX cd player at my local
Best Buy and I guess I got used to it's sound. Then I hooked up the Icon and
WOW! I can say that backwards, WOW! I could tell from the first note that the
Icon reproduced! Thanks for fixing this musical marvel for me."
"Just a brief note to let you know how pleased I am with your repair of my CL10...works like it always did and I am indeed relieved and happy."
