    Nice to see another one of these getting played. I use one as the source in my secondary system (living room) and I like it quite a bit.

    I picked this Marantz 6100 up for $25 from Facebook Marketplace. It was missing the feet so I found a pair of cheapies and put them on and ordered a pair of solid aluminum from China on eBay for $18. I just got them yesterday so this weekend I will put them on. It has a Stanton cartridge and works perfectly. I dont play much vinyl but this was such a steal that I had to have it.

    Beautiful outcome. I just picked up an old pf800 which is black. Works great, just need a dust cover with hinges.

    Found this in the attic today. Seems to be in good condition, think I bought it second hand some 20 years ago.
    I have not used it and I have given away all my vinyl records long long time ago
    Its a Dual CS 505-4
    Wonder if it still works ... :)

    Hey, what cartridge are you using for your 6100?

    I have a Shure M104E on it. I'm not sure how ended up with that cart on there. I only use it occasionally, since it's on top of my desk.

    First post here. A few days ago I got my hands on an ELAC Miracord 660

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately it doesn't look quite as nice as in that picture now, as I managed to rub off some of the fake wood design when I was trying to get some dirt off it. I've got some different coloured self-adhesive wood veneer coming in the mail though so I'm going to make the best of something bad and spruce it up a little bit in a different colour. (I ordered 3, a lighter wood to match the table it's sitting on - a darker wood similar to its current colour but a bit nicer looking, and a cherry red wood which is the one I'm leaning towards picking at the moment).

    Aside from a couple of minor issues (like a broken anti-skate mechanism - although I hear that the anti-skate on these tables was bad and not worth using to begin with, so I probably won't fix that) the turntable is working perfectly. I initially had some trouble with needing to hit the auto buttons twice for them to work - but levelling the table fixed that.

    Loving it so far. I thought the smaller platter size might bug me, but there's actually something really nice about how it looks spinning a 12" on a slightly smaller platter.

    It's actually the reason I signed up here - since almost all of my searches for information about the Miracord series led me back here to Audiokarma! ;)

    Another Technics fixed and back in service.
    Fault: No cueing , no auto functions.
    Culprit, 65cent flip flop IC460 - TC4013BP

    Fitted with a Pickering XV15. At first I hated the sound of this cart but after taking my time RE-aligning going through each adjustment, I love it. I hate to say this but I think it sounds better than my AT440.

    My uncle called me up Friday and said "we are cleaning out our spare bedroom and know you like old audio stuff, why dont you come down and take it off of my hands?" This is the TT he gave me. He purchased it new in 1981 for $140. He still had the receipt and owners manual. I ordered a new belt for it this morning.
