Just landed a pristine condition SL-7. Quite chuffed about that.
Now just have to do a little magic with it.
Happy, sunny weekend everyone x
Pretty ... and pretty proud of it
Does the magic mean getting the linear mech to work or is all fine and dandy ?.
No, all working.
A service and re-spray to black. I just dont like silver ...
PS. Perhaps plint it?
Yip black looks better I agree. Plinth / wood surround , yeah why not D all good fun mate. Are you going to keep it or move it along ?.
Black coupled with American Walnut / European Walnut looks the mutts. I love that combo.
I am not sure yet.
I think they are fairly hard to come by in good condition so I may keep it.
That plus it adds another spectrum to my others (Quartz regulated DD as opposed to Servo in the Sony).
Still like a Thorens TD150/160 and/or perhaps a TD125 to replace my mint 115 but I am happy with that one other than finding a good quality cart suitable.
I haven't bought the Micro Acoustic 2002e yet. Its between that one and an AT440 at the moment.
I love 'em all.

Can't keep a secret from you girls.
Yep, that's the one.
I thought it was reasonably priced but perhaps I paid to much ...
Never mind. Glad to hear yours sounds good and I will post pics once she's had her new coat etc.
That sounds lush.
Must look into it. - It will either be something on that line or a suspension platform, perhaps magnetic suspension feet.
I would assume that most things I do will perhaps add to the value one way or another.
I will probably source a new arm belt and replace it as a matter of cause as well as the usual dis-assemble, cleaning, lubing and de-oxing plus whatever else needs doing.
Ooooh it is D. Cant be blowed with pics ,yeah yeah I know, But I knocked up some plinths for my mono blocks from black worktop offcuts and edged them with walnut , like a saddo to marry in with my rack that I had made.
Lookie at this for an example..
Funk Firm Little Super Deck.
Not the greatest of foaties but you get the drift.
I must admit that looks very nice.
Would have to re-evaluate the matt black and probably dress her in sparkly gloss instead. Choices ... choices. A girls perogative
Indeed ,I'm having an eye shadow quandry at the min. Actually tis going to be black. Listening to Lisa Gerrards Silver Tree atm , has to be black,lol.
Skill , patience and loads of glue.
Sorry, I don't quite understand the question but I usually take everything apart as much as is necessary, depending on the condition of the innards.
For example, the Sony had a lot of (to much) old grease on the arm return/auto cogs so all was cleaned and re-greased where appropriate, same with the servo controlled drawer.
My Garrard was completely taken apart and serviced.
Same with the Thorens and the suspension was changed.
I replace belts and any other parts that need to and all electrical contacts are cleaned.
If any components need replacing I do that if it is within my and my equipments capabilities though this has only been necessary with amplifiers and speakers.
The above is the same with the SL7 but I know more when I get it.
Basically I'm just a little anal
It was more the bit about a wooden plinth I was referring to rather than servicing it.
