Hello ! My name is Amine I'm knew in this forum and I'm happy to join you ! Actually i'm a guitar player for 15 years, and a vinyl lover. I used to listen to my records with a record player and I quickly realised that it was destroying my records so I stopped using it until I earn enough money to buy me a Vinyl audio setup. And this is when I found, in my grand parents, a Pioneer sx-950 Stereo Receiver (i'd love to talk about it in another topic) and a magnificent Pioneer PL-530 ! I'm a musician but I have a very poor technical knowledge about music devices electronics so here is some photos Like you've seen, the headshell is completely non functionnal. So the problem is that I need a Headshell/Cartridge/Stylus to test the turntable, and if the tyrntable works or can work with a few (cheap) repairs, I will buy one. I have friends who have Technics sl series and Reloop rp 2000, and 1000. I was asking if the headshell of those turntables can be compatible with the pioneer pl 530. I would love to understand better the electronics and how can I restore this turntable, but I think it's too much difficult for a begineer to open it without any informations ! So if someone has any experience to share for that turntable, feel free to help ! Thank you and sorry for my english !
