Nakamichi 700 - need advice

I just picked up Nakamichi 700 for a low price. It needs to be serviced. I can't remember the name of the place that I've read is the premier Nak refurb/repair shop. Thanks in advance!

Soundsmith does excellent work on Nakamichi decks. Willy Hermann is also often recommended, although I don't have personal experience with him.
I heard back from Willy Herman that he does not repair that vintage deck anymore. I have a call in to SoundSmith. Any other recommendations will be appreciated.
Have you had response yet from Soundsmith yet? Result?
I cancelled the purchase of the Nak. I contacted Willy Herman, as above, and ESLabs. Both told me the deck was too old to fix. SoundSmith never replied to my email.
