My son just gave me a Funk Firm turntable that I can't really identify. It looks like a vector but only has a single pulley (on the motor). I believe I have accurately identified the tonearm as a Rega RB250S with Michell Tecnoweight. It includes the two different size "hung" weights. It has also been modified with Litz wiring by the original owner (friend of my sons). This is my first belt drive since my Thorens TD-160 that I bought new in the 70's and sold in the 80's. Since the mid 80's I've been using a ReVox B795 direct drive linear tracker and a JVC QL-F4 (also direct drive) when I want the ability of interchangeable headshells.
First question. This Funk Firm platter has very low torque. It's running of a 9vdc wallwart. Is this normal? I will say the clarity and soundfield are awesome.
Second question. The springy feet are somewhat wiggly. Is this normal.
Third question. Based on attached photo, what exactly is it?
Fourth question. Any end of side lift options other than Q-up?
I'm sure I'll have more questions down the road.
