Post more , become a sticky 😄..
Hehe, I am not sure a sticky would be necessary
Of course not everything I do is 'high-end'. I get lots of stuff in that people want me to 'maak 'n plan'... They are happy to just see the bear dance and don't care if the bear sucks at the fandango.
This one came in this week all the way from Upington. The fellow and his lovely wife were here on holiday and took the opportunity to bring their turntable, amplifier and speakers in for a full service.
All the amplifier needed was a good clean both on the inside and the outside. For the speakers we opened them up and fixed one dry joint on the crossover and changed the brittle cables with some new cabling. We also fitted new Din speaker connectors.
The turntable was a bit of a challenge... Everything was great except for the tonearm... The back stub had broken off and the v-blocks were toast...
Since the man was in a bit of a rush, getting v-blocks from the internet was not an option. Plan b. Fit a tonearm from a scrap ADC turntable I had... As you can see from the picture the ADC tonearm is exactly the same as the Linn Basik LVV except it didn't have a nice boss and collar. I managed to modify a collar from a scrap Lenco B52 tonearm to fit the ADC tonearm. The ADC arm also had a broken arm-rest and a broken lifter. Not a problem. Just use the original Lenco L75 lifer and rest... Job done, sorted!
