  1. Rather than adding more compliance under the turntable which may help a bit or could actually make it worse. I would try wedging something between the wall and the back of the cabinet that he turntable is sitting on. This bracing will reduce movement of the cabinet ... using the wall for stability without you needing to drill any holes in it.
  2. Series 1 SME 3012 (stainless arm tube) are very collectible and worth much more than the more commonly found series ii (alloy arm tube) 3012. The later 3012R had stainless arm tube and again is much more desirable than a series ii.
  3. I was mainly referring to sound quality ..... they happen to look beautiful as well.
  4. Had a listen to these at SPR08Y's place today. Beautiful speakers .... wish I had the coin.
  5. Be careful with 12" tonearms ..... most won't fit on that turntable. The VPI 12" arms are different as the pivot is on an outrigger of sorts so while the arm length is 12" the mounting distance is less.
  6. Even if it is a 115v motor it is still quite possible that (seeing that turntable was found in Australia) the pulley may already have been changed for the correct 50Hz one. Best way would be to replace the motor and using the existing pulley check the speed. In any case you'd only need to change the one pulley on the motor (not the other two) and a machine shop could easily make a new one from delrin or similar material.
  7. You can decrease the effective mass of the FR64s to an extent by using a lighter headshell. The stock FR 3S shell weighs something like 21grams and contributes to the high effective mass of the FR64s.
  8. Further information: Classic 1970s Marantz 140 power amplifier in good working condition. I bought this about 18 years ago with one channel was dead. I had it repaired (I think output devices were changed on one channel as well as all the fuse lamps for the vu meters) and used it briefly in second system but it has sat in a cupboard unused since then. I recently checked and it works fine and still sounds great .... surprisingly rich and grunty actually. VU meters work fine and illumination all ok. Cosmetically quite good ... the top panel has a couple of minor dings and
  9. Further information: Nice musical sounding tube tuner. I bought this from Duc (r.i.p.) many years ago and it had at that time been serviced by Resurrection Radio. I’ve since bought a couple of McIntosh tuners so this hasn’t been in regular use for some years. Still pulls in the stations and while not as sensitive or quiet as my McIntosh MR71 sounds lovely nonetheless. Would benefit from a decent aerial but still pulls in most stations well with just a 300ohm ribbon. Some of the concert recordings on ABC classic fm are great and the live broadcasts (few and far bet
