New Turntable Project

So the Pioneer went off to its new owner in Pretoria this morning (cheers, Arthur!) and I have started my next project: this beautiful, vintage, belt-drive, made-in-Japan Yamaha turntable. It needs a LOT of work (I have just taken it apart and thoroughly cleaned and oiled it so far) but it is big, beautiful and does sound stunning, even before her full make-over! Next up: new belt, new stylus, new power cord, new RCA leads, fix arm-lift, make a new motor cover plate, polish the lid and then set the tracking force, azimuth and anti-skate. Parts: R750, Labour: 24 hours, Result: priceless! #vinyl #turntable#diy

That's all Folks!
