Call Van L Speakerworks and ask the owner if he knows anyone. Also, Call WFMT office and ask for the Technical manager -see if he knows anyone. Finally, call Saturday audio exchange (on Saturday).
There used to be a good shop (Fullerton and Halsted-ish, had a big retriever that would smile at you) but think it closed.
Good luck (I mean it. If you live in Chicago, good luck!).
P.S. Try a Guitar Center/Pro shop also...
Many in the tape community uses Soren Wittrup, he used to be in the Chicago area but has relocated a little further out, he should still be within driving distance. I've used Soren myself for my Studer and would use him again the next time I needed work done. He is extremely knowledgeable and very efficient, he works a little differently than other techs I've dealt with.
