You can contact www.thevoiceofmusic.com for advice and help. I have had good dealings with him and heard nothing bad, ever.

My caption for the 4:35 MM Record Cover with the turntable and party scene would be: Who's the nerd now?

Here is a picture of the Turntable. It's a Rp1220. Supposedly a Rotel, but I have heard it may be a Sharp or Akai clone. Any more information would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Check the library here for more info.

Yeah it isn't listed under Rotel in the library. I can't find the model anywhere in definitive proof anywhere.

Don't know what it is, but the counterweight is on backwards.

Hi all, we have recently moved into a new house and the owners left a lot of furniture etc. We have come across this Garrard 301 51400/1 and are unsure of its worth or anything. It is in a large wooden box with a folding lid, but we don't know if it came like this or if the box was custom built for it. Can anyone please shed any light on this?
I see boxes for the Garrard pressure stylus guage and spindle in the console. Are they in the box. That is one thing with consoles, folks tended to keep the bits and bobs in them.

Found this on Mercari selling site.4562945630

Made in China. Anyone ever hear of Deck? I'm sure it is a fine piece of equipment. I should buy it. :^o

Hi everyone,
Please help me to identify this turntable. It might be made by Jason (Britain???) . I did Google research but not much information except that Jason was a motor maker and made some radio in 195x-196x.
It seems a quite good turntable with strong stable motor and heavy platter.
Thanks

I have just bought at auction a Technics 1200 SL, sans stylus cartridge. However I did not realise until I got it home that it is built for the Japanese market and operates on 110 volts. The instruction manual that came with it (which I suspect is not the original) is English/Japanese and shows a voltage control switch under the platter. But my TT does not have such a switch and does not conform to the photo in the manual.
Interestingly, there is a label added on the back stating that this TT was restored by ‘suomi’ in 2011. I see that Suomi was posting on this forum in 2015/16 but not recently. Is he/she still active? If so I invite contact.

As a newbie to the world of Technics, my questions are:
1. Can I run this TT on Australian power supply (AC, 240 volts, 50 hertz) if I connect a separate step down transformer ($30-$50)
2. Where do I find what the model number of this TT is recorded?
3. What is a suitable general purpose stylus to get for this TT?

Hello. I have acquired this turntable and cannot find anything about it online. Does anyone know anything about it? Where might I find parts for it?

Lyrec AG40 from Denmark, right on!

I bought my SME 3009 Type II Improved Tonearm from a vinyl aficionado in Denmark. He specializes in restoration of classic tonearms. Rather than mess up the restoration myself, I bought one of his that looked especially good to my eyes.

AJayVee I would caution that if your Technics SL-1200 was built for Japanese mains; those are 100 Volt mains, not 110. They are at least 10 Volts higher than US voltage mains. You might have to go to Wolfram Alpha and download Ohms Law and Watts Law. Wolfram Alpha has online calculators that will compute the value of the resistor that needs to go in-between your step-down transformer and your turntable. Since the SL-1200 series is the best turntable Technics makes, you need to protect that investment. I had to do the same thing with my Japanese current Denon DP-3000. It was also made for 100 volt current. Two simple calculations from Wolfram Alpha and I had the answer. I needed a 100 Ohm 5 Watt rated resistor in series with the voltage mainline. Be careful! If you aren't an Electronics Tech, get someone to install the resistor for you. A 5 Watt resistor can get hot. Especially if it is installed incorrectly!
