A Career in Tube Audio?
I sold my business after 16 yrs. The distributors generally do not want the product repaired, warranty rates have not kept pace with the economy. They do not normally stock parts.
It's not easy to run an honest shop and make money unless you are commercial (read: not audio). When you have to fight your distributor, give up. Notice that many parts jobbers are gone too.
I am now a telecom tech (PBX). I do high end service at home as many customers have "hunted" me down. This is worth while.
