  1. Further information: The deck works flawlessly but probably could do with a lube. The 730 was state of the art in its day and still looks amazing. All touch controls and functions work as should but the volume can fade out so will describe it as faulty. I have the original box for the receiver and all the original goodies for both units. Can deliver to Brisbane or Sunny Coast. Audition is possible. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Do you have a spring on the idler carrier arm? This mod seemed to tighten up the overall sound.
  3. Hi Colin. Yes the droppers are a good solution however during the rebuild I noticed they were starting to perish. At my workplace, a printing company, I spied a box of rubber suckers used on folding/finishing machinery. I fitted these face to face in pairs and seem to be perfect for the job. These are available from Birk and Blyme , clear blue Heidelberg bellows suckers. Half the fun for me with the Silex is the opportunity to experiment and tinker, hence my original post. The original soft grommets on the motor are also on the way out. Speargun tube? Any suggestions. Thanks
  4. Hi all. I decided to give my Silex a new plinth, mainly to give a bit of protection around the new arm and also to fill in my time. At the moment I just have temporary spacers made up from layers of cork and hardwood ply. The result is surprisingly ok but I know there’s plenty of room for experiment and improvement. There’s plenty of opinion on the web but I don’t see anything definitive for my situation. Should I be linking the layers for mass, isolating using Sorbothane, spikes or vibracones for feet, so many variables and many that are to expensive in this climate. Let me know what you think.
  5. Item: Quad 306 Price Range: $200 - $500 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Later rca model in good condition preferably unmolested. Let me know what you have. SE Qld but happy to pay postage. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  6. Hello all. I have had these two gems sitting around for a while and am just seeking some advice. The tape deck works fine and I may consider selling it however the 730 is a different story. All the lights, sliders, bells and whistles, tuner ect. work fine however there is an intermittent fault causing loss of sound. When it’s good it’s very good, but. My question though is how much money can you put into a 1978 amp before it’s to much and is this one even a worthy contender. I might add that both units are cosmetically mint. Thanks.
