The Source (purchased July 1984) is in the garage for a couple of reasons.
a. The VdH One cartridge on it is denuded of the stylus.
b. The tonearm lead is has been modifed to feed a balanced-in phono-stage; I now use naim gear.
c. I found a used LP12 with Syrinx PU3 and a DV17 for $500. Of course I had to replace the plinth, subchassis, bearing, inner platter, motor, arm and armboard, so it was not really such a great deal. The PU3 is still in very good condition, but I am now using the Aro.
d. The cosmetics are blemished. The lid was too low-slung to allow use with the Zeta, so I cut out an unsightly hole in the top using the only tool I had at hand-a soldering iron, and then had to place an inverted cereal bowl on top of that to deter dust from entering.
The Source was initially supplied with light weight 3-in-1 oil that went off every few months. I ended up using Mobil One oil about 15 years ago which never seemed to need changing.
I really must rewire the Sources armlead and try it out with a cheapo cartridge. I too had a custom-built DC power supply to replace the teeny-weeny one that the original one came with.
