  1. Hi all Thought it would be a good time to post a record of my Garrard 401 referbishment to still be viable in the 22nd Century From the beginning I had my mind set on certain aspects I wanted to be included, and I also wanted a sim pathetic refurb on the turntable itself as not to alter the original look and build wherever possible So the first thing on the list was a beautiful and audio worthy plank of wood to be used as a plinth This search took a while by visiting and investigating local timber merchants available stock In the end I found some Crows Ash, the timber merchant explained to me that it's a soapy wood that needs patience to work with it but will be rewarding in the end A quick point is that when sanding or drilling, this timber smells like tomato sauce Some information I found on Crows Ash Crow’s ash is predominately used for flooring and decking. It is also used for boat building and outdoor furniture. In times gone by it was used as flooring for dance halls due to its highly durable characteristics. While it is visually appealing, this species is not easy to work with, which limits the applications it can be used for. Crow’s ash is quite greasy which means it is hard to glue and nail --------------------- At the time I purchased the Crows Ash and just prior to commencing the project in 2011 I had some health issues that required hospitalisation and although I built a few sets of speakers while mending, the Garrard TT project was shelved and put on hold for some time The time came to get a start again on the build Although the plinth was CNC cut and also routed so the Garrad body casing would sit lower shortly after it was purchased it was patiently waiting for me to give it some attention

  3. Item: Garrard Turntable Fully Auto Model Synchro-Lab 65 B Location: Sydney 2127 Price: $120.00 Item Condition: Used (Vintage) Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal +3%, COD Only Extra Info:Bloody good machine for the age, it does what it's supposed to do very well and is most comfortable with older vinyl.....not sure what the cartridge is but I suspect it could be a Shure. The only reason I'm selling is because I have upgraded most of my Stereo gear and the package needed new TT. For obvious reasons this is a PICK UP only sale. Pictures:
  4. Just got a garrard 401 and looking for recommendations for tonearm. Considering EMT 929, SME 3012, Ortofon RMG 309, Audio Technica 1501 mk3?, Jelco. I am hoping for a musical setup rather than a 'vintage collectible'. I have a zyx r100 which I am thinking of reusing on the garrard. There isn't a lot on the EMT with the Garrard and I have heard conflicting opinion. Any thoughts? Thank you
  5. I have a HMV turntable which has a Garrard Record Changer (reverse unimech). It's a 6300 model 70. The available manuals (VinylEngine etc) do not describe how this record changer works. Put very simply it differs from the unimech in that the unimech has an overarm which stabilises the record stack. The reverse unimech, by virtue of its different operation does not need an overarm and has a side platform support, off which the records are pulled before being dropped. This all works OK for 33" LPs but I can't see how it is supposed to work for 10" and 7" records. Does anyone have one of these models and know how the record changer works for "10 and 7" discs?
  6. Item: Garrard 301 TT oil bearing, no plinth, in very good condition, some small ie 1mm chips missing in enamel, could be easily touched up, been serviced and ready to do duty. These are the classic collectable of all the Garrards, ready to drop into a plinth. I have a nice Rega RB900 arm for sale and would be a nice match. Location: Sydney Price: $1400 firm now $1100 Item Condition: Very good for its age Reason for selling: clearing my collection Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, prefer pick up and will give priority, but will post at buyers expense and responsibility Extra Info:serial number 80740 Pictures:
  7. Item: Garrard 301 TT with SME 3012 Tonearm, Vinylista Pear wood plinth and SPU G MC Location: Perth Price: 3700 AU Item Condition: very very good Reason for selling: Shindo 301 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This started as a project to find out, whether I could create a TT as good as my Shindo. I couldn't but this Garrard is almost as good, meaning very very good when compared with the same Shindo pick up (via Ortofon Adapter) for a fraction of the price. The Garrard is in near perfect condition and recently serviced by the Turntable Doctor. Everything works as it should. The plinth was made by "Vinylista" Martin Brenner in Germany (vinylista.de) of beautiful old and oiled pear wood and works like the Loricraft plinths with a Squash ball suspension. Just the craftsmanship is a lot better. It comes with an exchangeable armboard, should you wish to change the arm. The SME arm was converted to RCA and comes with the normal and the heavy SPU weight and a bronce knife bearing. The SPU is used but in very good condition, alternatively you can have a naked SPU N on a SME headshell or my Kondo IO. You could also have the TT with a new SPU GE. The Kondo or the new SPU will change the price! A Van Den Hul Phono cable, TT motor bearing oil and platter damping rings are included. The original Garrard Rubber mat looks like new. I also have a very good Sun Audio SAT 2000 SUT if you need or, should you take the TT with the Kondo IO an old Kondo AN S6c SUT if the offer is right and you twist my arm properly. Audition encouraged, postage please not. More pictures are available Cheers Christian Pictures:
  8. Calling all handymen. I have a mate who is in need of a plinth for a Garrard 301. Is there anyone out there who can be fee commissioned to build a nice solid (say 25kg plus) plinth either in a nice hardwood or mdf CLD style with veneer? The 301 template is readily available and the size would be for 2 arms, one being 12inch. When you consider importing these the total cost including shipping is prohibitive but there must be a local market for Garrards, Commonwealths and Lencos you would think? He is Sydney based but interstate would also be considered. thanks
  9. Having a vinyl collection laying dormant for many years and with the forced upgrade of a pre amp last year, I took the plunge and decided to get back into vinyl. I now have a Sound Reference turntable which to my ears plays very well, is easy to use and seems to do everything right. I have upgraded the cartridge to a Benz Micro Glider and I am blown away by the dynamics. A much more immediate and involving presentation than my CD player and I couldn't be happier. But I have this itch. The upgrade itch. I am considering buying another turntable. I will probably hang on to the SR turntable, but that could change depending on what I end up with. I will obviously keep the cartridge to use in the new turntable. I never knew there was such a passion for "old" turntables until I joined this forum. The workmanship in restoring and upgrading some of these beauties is incredible. And then I see the technical advances of the "newies" like the Kuzma, the Avid and the Pro-Ject RPM10 , I wonder will these "newies" outplay the oldies? Or are the oldies still doing the basics right and they also have the added attraction of being a piece of the past and still stand up and play with the best of them today. I do have a leaning towards bespoke products and could really see myself with a couple of turntables set up in the lounge room and just spinning away and thinking life is good....glass of red ....sorry about that, back on topic. So if I am looking towards an upgrade and considering what I am using now, what would be the next best step forward in my turntable evolution? As I am prepared to consider new and pre-loved, my budget is flexible and is between$1000 and $3000 for turntable and arm. I have trawled the classifieds here and there are some that catch my eye and some that I think are probably sold but still listed as FS. But again, I am looking for an upgrade so I am not really sure which ones would fall into that category. I really have a lot to learn about turntables in general and hope that I could get a range of opinions from the learned vinyl lovers and turntable "experts" in this forum. Maybe "upgrade" is the wrong angle and I should be looking towards a different flavour, a different sound, a different look. Thanks in advance for any advice. Cheers, Steve
