If it is still working after all these years, it probably needs no servicing. If it does, I would expect to pay $200 or so.

Which Focal speakers do you have; what model?

What type of source components are you using (CD player, streaming, etc.) and what make and model are they?

Is your amplifier the C356BEE?
