I've found it!...

As a part of my mass cull, emptied out a chest which my daughter uses as a table. After emptying the chest I've found my old Garrard (B20) turntable. It has a Ortofon cartridge F15E MKII. Not yet tested it but I'll give it the once over tonight....:bounce:

RE: I've found it!...

The Ortofon FF15E was my first cartridge..I think it's still kicking about the house in my box of bits (do all old audiophiles have a box of long defunct TT bits and cables?).

Yes, most of us do. Mr. Duncan used to have his hi-fi drawer stuffed full of bits 'n' bobs.

The Ortofon FF15E was a good cart in its day, but my favourite around that price bracket was Goldring G800. The only problem with the Goldring was it had a very low MVs, I seem to remember.

RE: I've found it!...

For me the answer is also Yes.
I have also found that the size of the box increases in direct proportion to age! :grin:

A Penguin looking into a Gramophone, now there's a thought...... a whole new twist to His Master's Voice! :O

Any'sway, back to my Garrard. I've plugged it in and the platter doesn't spin. It maybe the fuse in the plug, but don't own a 3 amp fuse so it'll have to wait another few hours.

  Good question , I hadn't thought it through that far . I guess for a three amp fuse a finger nail would be sufficient  whereas a toenail , being slightly thicker , would be more suitable for a 5 amp fuse .

    You're on your own when it comes to 13 amp fuses !
