Perpetuum Ebner PE33 Studio

Post by Paulo Abreu » 12 Aug 2019 11:33

I "Inherited" this turntable, it isn't powered for decades but AFAIK it was functional last time it was used.
It also has what seems to be an integrated amplifier, also from PE, chromed in the front. I'm back into vinyl but looking forward (have a Technics SL-1210GR on the way). It doesn't have the wood cabinet. I really don't know what to do with it, try to bring it to life? sell as it is? keep it in a box? I also got a bunch of vinyl records, a few (+200!) are old 78 rpm from the 50´s and early 60's I guess. Maybe I should keep it for those records...

PE 33 is a well regarded Idler of its era. I believe that they are quite popular. If you like fettling this is a good turntable.

I had to google "fettling" ... you mean cleaning, restoring? sorry, English is not my 17th language... :?
I'll give it a closer look then, some cleaning and try to power up, meanwhile made some searches and it seems there are still replacement parts available. Thanks!

Sorry yes. I am not sure of the best universal word to describe it. It needs love and care and attention to get running at its best. Which a lot of men like doing :)

Thanks again! Yes, I like to do it too. For basic stuff I think I can manage it, but when it comes to component testing and replacements I know my limitations. But I have a local friend that is an expert by any level (electronics is a hobby for him) - recently he restored a radio of mine, in last resource I can always ask for his help.

Just as curiosity, he has a youtube channel where he publish all the restoration videos:

This is my radio restoration videos, a Phillips BX750 with FM from 1955:

In that case you should have a lot of fun with this, esp with a new 1210 as something to keep you running whilst you are working on this. Keep us up to date with progress as it happens please.

Yep, I'll do it. I will pick the BE33+AMP in a couple of days and post pictures on this thread. Thanks for the insights! Regards

Here are the pictures. It looks in very good shape for me, I wouldn’t guess the +55 years this thing has!

The amplifier looks neat too

Just turning by hand, the platter turns soooooooo smooth, it seems it will never stop. There is a cable with a DIN 5pin plug, but the amp doesn't have that, there must have been an adapter from DIN to phono RCA jacks, have to find it somewhere...

Edit: Now I know the origin of the name "Perpetuum ..." :D

Older brother to my PE-34 Hifi.

It looks like a battleship, but runs soooo smooth. The built-in pre-amp is useful these days too.

Hi, the PE-33 has a built in phono pre-amp also?

That looks like a pcb with a pre-amp built on it to me
