I’ve bought this TT in working condition, but still it needed thorough cleaning, set-up automatic mechanism and wiring. I gave the old fart proper groom.
Original cables has been rotten, cheapo Neutrik connectors (which IMO useless) hard wired to tonearm. Cables has been hanging on PCB, therefore path has been ripped off.
New RCA connectors added + nice looking power cable. Now I can fiddle with phono cables.
Between tonearm and RCA connectors Klotz IY106 Professional Instrument Cable used.
Of course RCA plugs Neutrik used.
I took it all apart and put it together again.
Automatic TT is a great thing, plays and stops with press of button.
Temporary Audio Technica AT95 MM cartridge equipped with. This kind of TT deserves better food, so it get Ortofon 2M Black MM cartridge later.
It really sounds great, resonance frequency is about 9.5kHz.
First platter and tonearm taken off. Tonearm examined, cleaned, greased where needed and screws tightened
As you can see contact from PCB is coming off
Better pictures… people thinking, that old turntables are not good, but it ain’t true, as you can see.

All original – rubber mat is great for vibration dumping
