Sanyo Plus Q50 Turntable information


I am the new owner of a Sanyo Plus Q50 Turntable (not a TP 1000). It seems to be a well built unit. I've been searching for information on this unit but have come up empty. I can't even find specifications.

Does anyone have an owners manual and/or service manual or just the basic specifications for this?



siemens 777 similar to Q50?

Hi tinojax,

I accidentally stumbled upon a picture of the Sanyo Q50 and was stunned by the resemblance to the Siemens RW 777 I have. Always thought Siemens did not actually produce these turntables themselves but now I see they only changed the printing.

Could you check whether the service manual for the Siemens RW 777 I uploaded just a month ago could also be useful for the Q50?

Milkwood, Yes my Sanyo Plus


Yes my Sanyo Plus Q50 seems to be exactly the same as your Siemens RW 777. So the service manual you posted should work for the siemens RW 777 Sanyo Plus Q50 as well. I was able to adjust my stylus set down using this manual.

Thanks for the heads up!
