  1. Further information: For sale is a rare vintage Sansui SM-12M valve receiver. Has had some recaps, new mains lead and new magic eye valve. Facia is very good with some pitting to the gold metal surround. Some marks on the case. This unit sounds very good. The phono stage is the original and I don't think it is compatible with modern phono requirements. I used a phono preamp via the aux to play LPs. The original circuit diagram is attached to the inside of the case. Would prefer pick up and cash on pick up but can post/courier at buyer's cost and risk. Photos: PLEASE READ

  3. Terrific! Many thanks. It's been a while since I had an idler. Will keep my eyes open.
  4. Thanks for the heads up. Exactly what should I look for in relation to the solenoid when the platter is off?
  5. Thanks to everyone who provided input to this topic. I was hoping to get this at auction but was seriously outbid. In case anyone is wondering, and perhaps to give an idea of the value of the TT and arm combination, it sold for $2,100 plus 16.5% buyer's premium. The provenance of the TT was very sound. It was originally part of the collection of a prominent SA radio announcer and then part of the collection of a SA film production company owner. So probably well looked after. The only caveat to price/value is the buyer wasn't able to check whether the unit powered up prior to purchase, so a li
  6. Again, thanks everyone for the information. I'll let you know how I get on.
  7. I see, makes sense about playing from inside out. Thanks for the info. Let's see what's in the 16 inch disc collection!!
  8. Thanks everyone for the information. I noticed the stylus on the cartridge is at a slight angle. There appears to be a screw which might allow it to be realigned. Do you think that might work? The cantilever seems okay. I'm hoping to acquire the turntable shortly. It has some 16 inch radio station discs which also look interesting. The turntable restoration would be my next big project. Any ideas on a suitable plinth? I saw on the web that some of these transcription broadcast turntables can play from outside to in, and from inside to out. How is that possible???
  9. Hi everyone. I'm looking at what appears to be a Commonwealth Electronics turntable. It is four speed and the platter diameter is 15 inches. Not 12 inches or 16 inches but 15 inches. I've researched the web and can't find any info on a Commonwealth tt like this. It has a tonearm with it which has an Ortofon SPU-A headshell and cartridge. The headshell has a green Ortofon label which I think means the cartridge is for 78 rpm. There is a number on the cartridge which is 8696. Can anyone identify the model of the turntable and/or the tonearm? The tonearm doesn't have a makers mark. Unlike most si

  12. Any idea how to fix the broken cue mount? And where would I get some silicon fluid for the bearing well?
  13. Hi everyone. I've just acquired a JH Audiolab turntable with a JH Formula 4 tonearm. I've downloaded the user manual for the tonearm from VynilEngine. My tonearm is missing the tracking force calibration pin; is this a big deal? Also the black plastic platform which holds the lift and lower and cuing device is broken so the cueing device isn't firmly held by the platform (see pictures). Does anyone know of a fix for this problem? My turntable is in great shape and the tonearm is fitted with an Ortofon VMS 20E mk2 which I haven't tested yet. I have read the thread on the Formula 4 on this site.
