At FYLP, the RCA 45 rpm player has become one of our most often requested repairs and sellers. Each repair is handled with the same great care and put through our strict quality assurance program before it leaves our facility by going through a 22 point inspection. Just a few of the things we watch out for is warbled or shrilly audio and proper tone. Our goal is 100% satisfaction 100% of the time.
