  1. I have a pair of Celestion Ditton 66 studio monitors, the cabinets/enclosures need to be replaced. I can have them made from almost any material. The new cabinets will be made to the exact internal dimensions as the originals. All suggestions welcome, as I have never done this before. Thanks Paul

  4. I've had that said to me too many times
  5. I have a set of RTR 800d speakers (photos attached) Does anyone have any information about these? They are open backed for the top 3 drivers, and closed with a foreward firing port for the bass driver. Sorry about the pics. Regards, Paul

    Anyone know where to buy one of these?

    Buy some "Rapid Fix" adhesive. I have used it successfully on many bits like this. Only a couple of plastics that it doesn't like.
  7. Where in Victoria are you? If I can organize someone to pick it, I would like to buy it.

    Turntable motor

    Try giving the motor two drops of sewing machine oil. It worked on mine.
  9. I have set of Celestion Ditton 66 studio monitors. Around 1976, sound great.

    AR turntable worn bush

    Thanks vwo60, I will try finding a decent machinist. I have temporarily used some synthetic 80w-90 gear oil in the well. Seems to have tightened things up nicely without straining the motor or slowing down the platter. (Yep, that's a lot of play)
  11. I have a lot of amplifiers in need of repair in Cygnet Tasmania. Does anyone know of a reputable technician to use? Most of the amplifiers are from the 1970s and 1980s (Luxman, Kenwood, Creek, Sansui etc.)
  12. I have an Ar turntable that has a lot of play in the spindle bush. I do not know what is normal for these units, but it seems very excessive. Is there a replacement bush or a "fix" to sort this out? There is a replacement sub chassis at Hifigem in the US, but it is $275.00 US . Cheers Paul

    Beware of Snake Oil & Blind Belief!

    I will test some old triangle ones as well. Try some of my more sacrificial gear the right way and reversed, to hear if there is any difference.

    I have acquired two TASCAM 42B-DB reel to reel units. They will need a bit of work in due course. Any opinions on this model would be appreciated. This is my first foray into the reel world. Cheers Paul
