  1. 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.)
  2. 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
