Vinyl Restoration & Duplication

Here at Star Audio Studio, we specialize in the Duplication and Restoration of Vinyl records to CD or DVD.
Why bother you ask?

For a start it just sounds great, we digitally transfer the audio using state of the art equipment at DVD quality and we even remove most of the annoying cracks and pops associated with old vinyl records, and secondly a lot of music, especially older music and different genres, just isn’t available to buy on CD or DVD, and owning turntables is a bit of a pain these days, but there is a solution … just bring them to us and we will transfer them to CD or DVD so you can listen to your favourite music again in pristine audio quality at home, in the car or wherever you want to take your favourite music.

Backline Hire

Through our strong industry ties, we are able to offer our clients a huge range of backline, so if your looking for that special snare sound or that massive guitar rig to make your next song a hit, and money doesn’t give you the luxury of owning a DW Custom drum kit, easy, just hire one for the session, and get that sound your after.
