  6. Happy to buy it...PM sent. Thanks...😁
  7. Isn't that tonearm bent?? Should be dead straight...yes.
  8. The Grace F-8 is a superb cartridge and will sound great on any turntable...certainly far superior to the standard Technics cartridge which comes with the Technics SL-23. The Technics is a good cartridge mind you...but not in the same league as the F-8. So your JH is playing now...and your SL-23 is singing. It's a wonderful year for hi fi....
  9. Hi Martin, I read your comments on the speed issue you experienced with your Luxman A522. Funny thing...I recently acquired an A522 which is running at around 24.6 RPM instead of 33.3 RPM...sound familiar? So looks like I am having the same problem which you did...may I ask were you bought your new motor, sub-platter etc? I will be needing one for mine. Cheers...Vanch :-) 0419666313 Plenty 3090
  10. Hey good work there....and YES of course it worked.... Was it the 1mm black rubber cord you used? The bigger the cord size the faster the speed as I showed in my earlier speed tests. For quick & easy speed checks, I downloaded "Turntabulator" through iTunes for $2.99 and use this on my iphone....you sit your phone on the spinning platter and in a few seconds it shows you the speed. And finally, if your new custom made cord belt has some excess glue at the join, I found I can clip off the unwanted glue with nail clippers...they have a nice curve to them which helps too...just try not to clip your belt in half Ha ha!!! Well done clunt...happy music PS: I recently used this 1mm clear silicone cord on my JH turntable and it's excellent too....easily glues together with super glue! Ebay Item No. 271953236807 Only $1.11 with Free post and 6 metres length (sorry I forgot to mention this sooner)
  11. Hello clunt, I was thinking you mentioned the new belt your bought is 1.3mm thick. I think your turntable needs a 1.0mm thick belt to run at the correct speed. If you get the 1.0mm rubber belt from the Ebay seller I mentioned you should be able to get the speed just about spot on....I hope... Remember to use just a small dab of super glue at each end...not too much, then tape the glued ends down on a chopping board or the like to hold them in position...make sure they are evenly aligned before the glue sets>>>>>ACTUALLY BETTER TO TAPE THE ENDS DOWN FIRST! Good luck with that...Vanch
