DP35F vs 47F dilemma.

Post by godriah » 23 Nov 2018 18:22

I've posted this elsewhere so apologies if you're reading this again! I've got the option to purchase a 47F over the weekend for approx £285. Seller isn't sure which cart is fitted. However both table and cart are in superb condition and the table is serviced. My question is, how much of an upgrade would it be over my current 35F? The cart isn't of much importance to me as I plan on using my AT120e. One RCA cable on my 35F has packed in so that is going to need replacing. Should I just repair my 35F and spend the money on records and/or a new cart. Or should I upgrade to the 47F?

Cheers...

What do you mean serviced? Have the electronics been totally recapped? Has the main bearing been inspected for wear and, if none, has the bearing been cleaned and re-lubed?

Servicing the turntable means little unless the above has been done. Without those steps, servicing is not much more than cleaning it up and making it look good. That is OK if all you are going to do is look at it. Otherwise make sure you ask the above questions.
