A few Kind Words from Previous Clients

“I struck gold when I made contact with Manchester Audio Restoration; I knew nothing about them when I tentatively rang the number on their website to enquire about digitising a damaged 50 year old cassette tape which was of sentimental value to me. They kept me informed at every stage and the result is simply fantastic. I can now share the digitised version with my daughters and grandchildren. What service, politeness and what dedication to their ‘business’ and customers. I shall have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and family. Thank you”

“Thank you very much for undertaking the process of transferring the old reel to reel tapes (that were approaching 60 years old)  to digital format. You were able to bring voices back to life of people no longer with us, together with memories. The communication has always been very friendly, timely and informative. The turnaround time was also very prompt and you kept me informed at every stage of the process. I felt the charge for this process was extremely good value and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of my friends should they need to use such a service. Many thanks”

 “My worn out 78 of my Mum & Nan singing in an old pub, which was scratched, chipped, battered and bruised.
