you do not have to yell
But I am hard of hearing or so my wife thinks.
Even someone with perfect hearing would have heard nothing from that post.
Sounds a bit messy and horrible.
Jensen JTA-230 and Sansui SR-222, though I'm planning to sell or give out the first one.
All Technics: SL-j2 (original owner since 1984), SL-D2, SL-1300, and SL-1200MkII (KAB mods)
Everything still works on all of them...
IMO Technics made workhorse turntables that can still be had for decent money. Paid a little over $100 for the SL-D2 a year or so ago.
No systemdec x2
Never noticed this thread before for some reason,
Anyway I have a Marantz 6200 with a Shure M95ED and a Rega RP3 with a Ortofon 2M Bronze.
Last week I picked up a Thorens TD-160 Super from Vinyl Nirvana. Plinth in Santos Mahogany and Jelco SA-750D with a 2M Bronze.
beautifull TTs Mike and C6.
Still one of my favorite posts even after starting it over 15 years ago. Hard to believe it now has over 6500 responses, and almost 3.500.000 views... That's insane !!!
Lets keep the tables coming, loving seeing all turntable porn
Me to grump. U got it.
Thanks for AK btw.
Never get to talk to the big gun.
I'm a new member. I bought myself a Technics SL-D2 as a project to fix up and bring back to life again. It's been a little beaten up, but I wanted something to work on and bring back to life. It's on the workbench at the moment. Just testing that everything is good mechanically first.
My plans are to deaden out the plinth get a nice new head cartridge and stylus and upgrade to a new corked platter mat. Once I've gotten through that its mostly cosmetic. I may well measure up and make a new plinth for it to sit in. I'll just see how far I get once I get it up to cosmetic and working order.
Welcome to the AK turntable forum.
Best of luck with your restoration project.
Thanks... I may need few instructables on the way, so I'll post back where nescessary in working out what to do with this thing.
I bought one of those new back In the day. It was a big step up from the old BSR with ADC cartrige I had before it.
How many posts will the system allow in one thread? Just curious.
I got a D2 myself. 1st thing to do is get the svc mnl for setup and everything.
then u can do whats needed.
Only complaint of it is tonearm is fixed and not replaceable.
other than that its a good running sounding TT. I like mine.
There have been people/members who have replaced the standard tonearm for something else. Seems to me one person installed a Jelco tonearm.
That's interesting, from what I read it seemed like it was too difficult or either not nescessary. The problem doesn't seem to be with the tone arm, but the weight of it which you can fix with the appropriate head shell and cartridge. I've been wrapping my head around how to make a plinth out of a solid piece of Tasmanian Oak. Seems like I'll need to get my hands on a forstner bit with the tools I have at home to make it work.
