akai mg416 repair/sale.

I see a couple of AKAI threads on here and i also have a 4000ds mk2 coming my way, which i'm dreading......

Where do you guys get your parts / technical assistance from?

I spoke to Dave at VST and as helpful as he was, there's not really a lot he can tell me without inspecting my 614.

A local repair store said they'd look at it, but i'm half expecting a £20 inspection fee for someone to say "we can't get the parts"
