Hi all, just picked up one of these for way more than it was worth (£97!). It was listed as fully working, but the auto-return mechanism was actually faulty, the usual gunky sponge issue. That was easy enough to fix.
However, after mounting a cartridge I'm seeing what I can only describe as a weird headshell angle, or cartridge angle. It appears as if the cartridge is leaning to one side slightly. I've checked the service manual for any azimuth adjust but it doesn't mention it. I also can't see any obvious way to achieve it.
The cantilever appears to be perfectly level in the groove and the sound is not leaning or distorted so perhaps this is by design, or simply a fault but not harmful.
Any ideas appreciated!
