Thanks Ifor. Any more pictures of your SL-7?
Pretty ... and pretty proud of it
I'll be away for a few days but will post more when I'm back.

Other rooms: more Airport Expresses and Homeplugs with Denon AV system and Denon Mini system.
Technics claimed that you could play the SL10 on it's side and I found that to be true. Not as a matter of normality, but just a successful experiment [with a piece of vinyl I didn't treasure]. I guess your 7 will do the same drummer??

No good unfortunately.
I need it to work upside down.
The instructions do have a bit about wall and ceiling mounting. Wall I can understand, but not ceiling. Do you have a copy of the instructions? If not they and the service manual are available on Vinyl Engine.
Sorry Ifor, I was joking.
Bad one admittedly but my excuse is that I'm a foreigner.
It will be sited as level as poss.
Apparently Technics used to make chocks for them so that they would sit at a 45 degree angle.
Not very exciting; it's just a standard SL-7. "Inspired" Manticore Mantra included.
Ohhh, she is so ... tiny!
Lovely hifi ifor and thanks for the pics.
Mine should arrive within the next couple of days but I got training so probably won't be able to pick her up.
Still pondering over what colour for the new dress. - Matt black, Black gloss with tiny silver bits in it, a lovely plint ... I just dont know.
That is if I like the sound of course.
What about pink like Lady Penelope's FAB 1.
Mine sounds really rather good through the Slee, but disappointing, relatively (unsurprising) through the Kandy.
I dont think I'd have the stomach for a pink turntable
Not expecting miracles from the Technics as long as it has the usual DD strengths.
If it doesn't, I'll service and sell it, perhaps along the 115 to fund a 150/60 (or 125). Problem is I like the 115 a lot but am running out of space for TT's ...
I just thought that if Rega can do pink, why not Technics? Have you looked at Bob's p-mount website?
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
I was watching that one too.
Look forward to seeing pics D
It was on my watch list but I forgot Came back from work and gone it was (at a very, very good price. Surprised). Would have made the perfect donor machine or, if lucky, an indecently cheap SL-7 if repairable.
I did look at Bobs website. Some luvely stuff there. Liked the SL-7 on the acrylic base. Doesn't do much but looks cool.
I put a maximum bid in of £20. Silly, I should have gone higher. Has yours arrived yet?
