thought it would be a cool idea for a thread devoted to those old turntables we all must have kicking around... like my Technics SL-Q202 i found in someone's garbage at the side of the road and the like.
my recent score is a 1978 Dual 621...
it's actually setup for playing Quadrophonic records, if you can imagine... not that i have a receiver capable of such a thing. the stylus and catridge that are on it are pretty much toast anyway.
i had to take it all apart to try and get the auto features working properly, and MAN, those German Engineers were not f***ing around when they designed this bad boy... check it out:
turned out i needed to make myself a new "steuerpimpel", basically a little nub that runs the auto start feature (which is pretty damn cool when it is set to 45 rpm)... any Dual owners out there probably know what i am talking about, damn things are infamous.
anyhow, i have a question for any vintage TT nerds out there:
what would be the best catridge/stylus combo for this table?
i know it has a rather light tonearm, so i can't just put any old thing on there, or i would put my spare M97xE on there... any recommendations? this sh!t kinda baffles me.
