To begin with, I'd just like to know how to remove the turntable from the wooden case. The audio cables seem to be shot, and I keep getting a feedback hum so I'd like to make sure the ground is well connected. But I can't get into the darn thing. I'll keep trying, but I don't want to break anything.
