I made up my mind about the tonearm and it shouldn´t be the best way to "linear".
As there originates no scating-force because the cartridge is parallel to the groove, but there still is friction between stylus and groove which does pull more or less the cartridge forward.
On a "normal" linear arm the pull would be opposed to the tonearms mounting and by that not having any effect - but on this arm the pull is at an 90°angle to the mounting and by that "bending" the whole arm.
The bending off course should be very small, but should be biggest when the arm is complete expanded (at the end of the record).
In the end the guide rails, or whatever holds the arm, have to be very high precision to keep the arm from moving forward or backward (also keeping it from vibrating) - but at the same time must enable the arm to easily move from right to left.

So not the best construction principle for a linear from a technical point of view.

Looks like a Garrard Model 6-300 chassis. Similar models are the Garrard 42C and the 42M, but they have a slightly different badge above the function lever...

If anybody is interested:

The model from Jake & Elwood seems to be a "Sears Silvertone" portable record player with a BSR chassis...

In the movie Argo, the night before the big escape from Tehran, When The Levee Breaks is pounding at their party. A great use of Zep's apocalyptic blues stomper.

Last night I watched 'American Hustle' on TV. Great movie. The closing scene features this turntable. I think it's a Scott PS-68.

Hi all,
recently I have seen the Richard Linklater’s movie “everybody wants some”. Based in an US college, year 1980, following the boys in the baseball team, 3 days before the lessons begin.
Lot of fun, lot of music.

The first images are with Jake the freshman going to college. A sort of déjà vu instantly hit me; from 32 to 35 yo I moved 5 times. There was always a trip with me and my stereo and records in the car

Q: Are we not men?

pioneer pl 112 I guess

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TCXauVxXzEw/ ... 11s187.jpg

The set up is completed (I had that earphone too, Pioneer). Also the cassette player seems a Pioneer. I dunno the receiver, I am sure someone will tell. The seniors raid the room. Bye bye to one shirt…

…and to a triple album

Willoughby’s den: “Fearless” as musical background to the man’s philosophy and illegal actions.
Please help me here: TT Pioneer (Pl 31?), Receiver and tape Marantz, but I don’t know which models

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-mJRygx3WQIQ/ ... 0m17s4.jpg

The Team visit a Punky frat: there you find a Technics playing Stiff Little Fingers. Do not know the model and neither the cartridge …

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-_-KGIO2Eio4/ ... m16s82.jpg

Jake is invited by a girl to her room: I am sure of Joni on the wall and Patti between the records, maybe the TT (Pioneer), but no idea of the receiver

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-hP4a6a_MasE/ ... m36s87.jpg

Please help to fill the blanks!
Bye K

Nice find! =D>

The cartridge is definitely from audio-technica. The cartridge body could be an AT130E, AT135E, AT140E, AT140LC or AT140ML with a stylus from a P-mount model - I guess it is the ATN132EP.

Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire has a scene where the main girl puts a Nick Cave record.

Columbo episode

Post by zeppeliner » 16 Jun 2018 21:58

In the Columbo episode "The Bye-Bye Sky High I.Q. Murder Case" from 1977 an ADC Accutrac 4000 has an important part of the plot and is shown and used several times.

This fun episode is recommended. Columbo is very impressed with the record player and finally finds out that it has been used in a special way during the murder.
