Got it at ebay. Turntable spinning like 78 RPM or better. Then it went to the proper speed 33 1/3 but lock light blinks occasionally and song wavers as it blinks. Is it the IC?

Aging electrolytic caps are more often implicated in speed stability issues. My Sony exhibited same problem, speed drops resulting in a warbling effect. Replacing caps (not all, just the electrolytics) and cleaning the speed pots corrected the problem. My Denon has also been recapped, but by the previous owner. Recapping and cleaning seems a de rigueur thing when acquiring older DD's.

Thank you. That sound like a good start. Caps it is.
