Looking for a tech for my technics SP10

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys 

 

I'm looking for some help finding someone to repair my Technics SP10 turntable.

 

We seem to have limited options in Perth. I have tried a few people, i seem to either get - Yes thats an open cheque book please - Yes i can do it, then excuses, price hikes and no action, Or yes I can but i don't want to (my interpretation, no thats too hard for me but I don't want to say that).

 

Either way I have had no luck. 

 

I would post over east if I thought I could get it repaired.

 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

I guess that it could be getting onto 40 years old, it most probably could do with replacing the capacitors inside the turntable and power supply.

 

Did anyone look at it and give you an idea what might be wrong with it?

 

I hear Jason Boyd is a great person to get a turntable repaired with. http://turntable-doctor.com/Turntable_Doctor.html

I had Jason service my SP10. I had speed issues. He did a brilliant job. Very happy. Its hasn't missed a beat since. Highly recomend him.

Russ ...Liquid Audio in Carine Perth might be your only hope, though he charges at professional rates (not cheap)? Also, I have had no experience with his work so not necessarily recommending him, the website and words therein look good.

 

Cheers,

 

Steve.

Russ, 

 

i gather from this thread you tried Jason at turntable table? Do you have any better luck with liquid or anybody else. 

 

There is a guy in Koondoola or Balga - also doing repairs , name escapes me at the moment, but I think the business is rfwaves or similar, I think he also makes and sells solid states and valves on Perth gumtree.

Thumbs up here for Jason (Turntable Doctor) and Mike at Liquid Audio.

You need to keep in mind that some work usually needs to be carried out before all issues are diagnosed successfully. These guys are trained professionals, its not a hobby for them, it's their livelihood.

 

You have a good table, it deserves a good tech.

What does it need? PSUs were the biggest problem here so I'd get that checked first, and they are very simple.The motor controllers are not though.

Thanks folks, think i have been round the regular people. Not sure if i tried Golden Age so I'll give em a call.

Thinking of selling as is. In fact I put one up on ebay already, but I think I want too much for it. I'll check with Mark as well. I know he has some but not sure if he has ever got them repaired.

Definitely try Duc @lovetube. He is in Melbourne but couriers go everywhere. When he sent mine back, it took me about 10 mins just to unpack it! Also ask him to respray it for you, mine looks the biz. Will get around to posting some images once I have his Univector arm and cartridge on it. Here's a teaser...

      Item: Tonar Pure Cork Turntable Platter Mat - As New
      Location: Sydney, CBD or Upper North Shore
      Price: $25.00, plus postage at buyer’s cost if shipping required.
      Item Condition: Excellent, as new
      Reason for selling: Surplus
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      I purchased this Tonar pure cork platter mat brand new from Castle Hill Sydney HiFi (for use with my Gyrodec).  But I've found that it just doesn't quite work that well with the Gyrodec that seems to just work best with no platter mat added. 
       
      The Tonar cork mat comes with original packaging sleeve. 
       
      I can post to anywhere in Australia using Express Post with tracking. Buyer to pay shipping costs.

      Hi guys,
       
      I've got an old Sansui AU5900 thats in lovely condition except the relay has died on me i.e. no 'click' when you turn the amp on. Manually toggling the relay (with a hell of a lot of insulation) results in glorious glorious sound so I'm planning to unsolder and replace it. I'm not sure where to find a replacement though. The relay is marked as an Omron Type MY02 and also has -0-Y23 printed on it's plastic cover. Since google has been of very limited assistance, can anyone point me in the direction of a replacement?
       
      Cheers,
      Tim
