Hey Guys 

 

I'm looking for some help finding someone to repair my Technics SP10 turntable.

 

We seem to have limited options in Perth. I have tried a few people, i seem to either get - Yes thats an open cheque book please - Yes i can do it, then excuses, price hikes and no action, Or yes I can but i don't want to (my interpretation, no thats too hard for me but I don't want to say that).

 

Either way I have had no luck. 

 

I would post over east if I thought I could get it repaired.

 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

I guess that it could be getting onto 40 years old, it most probably could do with replacing the capacitors inside the turntable and power supply.

 

Did anyone look at it and give you an idea what might be wrong with it?

 

I hear Jason Boyd is a great person to get a turntable repaired with. http://turntable-doctor.com/Turntable_Doctor.html

I had Jason service my SP10. I had speed issues. He did a brilliant job. Very happy. Its hasn't missed a beat since. Highly recomend him.

Russ ...Liquid Audio in Carine Perth might be your only hope, though he charges at professional rates (not cheap)? Also, I have had no experience with his work so not necessarily recommending him, the website and words therein look good.

 

Cheers,

 

Steve.

Russ, 

 

i gather from this thread you tried Jason at turntable table? Do you have any better luck with liquid or anybody else. 

 

There is a guy in Koondoola or Balga - also doing repairs , name escapes me at the moment, but I think the business is rfwaves or similar, I think he also makes and sells solid states and valves on Perth gumtree.

Thumbs up here for Jason (Turntable Doctor) and Mike at Liquid Audio.

You need to keep in mind that some work usually needs to be carried out before all issues are diagnosed successfully. These guys are trained professionals, its not a hobby for them, it's their livelihood.

 

You have a good table, it deserves a good tech.

What does it need? PSUs were the biggest problem here so I'd get that checked first, and they are very simple.The motor controllers are not though.

      Item: Project 1Xpression Carbon Turntable w/ Ortofon Bronze and Ortofon Silver Cart
      Location: Melbourne City
      Price: SOLD
      Item Condition: Used but excellent working order (small chip on right of plinth (see photo)
      Reason for selling: Upgraded
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal
      Extra Info:
      I have had this turntable for about 18 months and upgraded the cart to an Ortofon Bronze about six months ago. I would estimate about 100 hours on the cart and the kit works perfectly. Apart from a slight nick on the side of the mahogony plinth, the unit is in great working condition. I have moved onto a significant upgrade so this turntable is no longer required but I'm sure it will give the next owner many years of enjoyment.

      All the bits and pieces are included including standard RCA cable, power supply and I have popped into the box, some isolation feet (that makes a massive difference) and the standard Ortofon Silver cartridge, manual, dustcover etc. This has been carefully packaged in the original box so can easily be trnasported across town or across country.
       
      This turntable and cart retail for +/- $1700 so I think this is a pretty fair price and therefore non-negotiable.
       
      Thanks for looking

      Hi,
       
      I might get a black stylus, wonder if anyone has used the black stylus on a bronze cartridge before, I know they are compatible but wants to hear some experience

      I have a Linn LP12 which has developed significant hum, probably due to a cable fracture. It's a mid 1990s model with the Valhalla power supply and was serviced with the new bearings etc about 10 years ago   But now needs a proper service likely with recabling of the tonearm (Rega RB300 arm). I cannot find anyone in Brisbane who has expertise in this particular area does anyone have any recommendations?

      Hello, SNA friends,
       
      I am total novice in turntable and never had one. I mainly listen from network player or CDP but after reading many positive aspects of Vinyl on this forum, keen to try one and need a bit of advice to choose right one if possible.
      First of all, I noticed that there are two different types of turntables such as belt driven and direct-drive and each has its own Pros & Cons that I found as below;
      Belt Drive
      A belt drive turntable spins the platter using an elastic belt that’s attached to the motor. The platter sits on a bearing (a bearing is a device that is used to enable rotational or linear movement) and is isolated from the motor.
      Pros
      The elastic belt absorbs shock and prevents vibrations that are generated by the motor from reaching the platter. Isolating the motor from the platter also results in less noise transmission to the tonearm. It is generally believed that belt drive turntables produce better sound quality due to less noise interference from the motor. Cons
      Belt Drive turntables have much lower torque and can have less accurate playback speed. The belt can eventually (a few years) wear down and need to be replaced.  
      Direct Drive
      In a direct drive turntable, the platter is attached to and spins directly via the motor. Direct drive turntables offer more constant and accurate speeds, and generally feature faster start up times and stronger torque.
      Pros
      Direct Drive turntables have higher torque and offer highly consistent speeds. Higher torque means the platter is less vulnerable to outside forces, such as the stylus or your hand. A higher torque also means that the platter accelerates to a constant speed faster, which results in less sound distortion. Allows you to spin the platter backwards to create special sound effects, which are preferred by DJ’s. Cons
      The rotation of the motor generates unwanted vibrations that can affect sound quality. This issue can be addressed with the use of shock absorbers between the platter and the motor.  
      If I understood correctly, Direct Drive might be better for beginner since it has involved less maintenance and if that case, I am thinking to get "Audio Technica AT-LP120 USB" after reading many positive review online. 
      If Belt Drive option is better for long run, then may save more and get "Pro-Ject Debut Carbon"?  
       
      If I understood correctly, Pro-Ject Carbon does not come with preamp built in so need phono pre-amp separately which will add costs.
       
      Which one might be better for a novice between the two, and is TT + separate pre-amp noticeably better in terms of sound quality against the one that comes with built in Amp?
       
      Any other model suggestions would be welcome and appreciated.  
       
      Thank you very much in advance.
