would you ever have imagined that this one will fail you?

Well, after 32 years in operation, even the world's best direct drive, the Technics SP-02 may have a weak spot...

This is the bad boy:

The near impossible to get MN6042 Pitch Control IC

Got some capacitators for completely re-capping the drive amplifier

Jvo Studer at work. He's the best expert on cutting lathes and the like on the whole damn planet!

Power To The People!

If someone can tell me what the 22 RPM are for, I'll order him / her a beer next time we meet....

The built quality of this unit is truly amazing, if not awe-inspiring...

If someone can spot Michael Jackson in this picture, he / she will get TWO beers next time!


Still having time for bullshit like this

The Neumann VMS70 looks a bit pitiful without the drive unit...

Jvo in action...

Praying that the other unit lasts until Jvo's next visit...

We just tested the 2nd unit this time and Jvo bridged that fault-prone chip for safety reasons... So no pitch adjust for the next few weeks, folks....

Also seeking: DN860, AN660, AN640G, SVIMSM561 - all ICs made by Technics / Matsushita - not standard industry parts....

Desperately Seeking...

Sub-bass is a term used to describe audible sounds below 90Hz and extending downward to include the lowest frequency humans can hear, typically 20Hz. Sound systems often feature one or more subwoofer loudspeakers that are dedicated solely to amplifying sounds in the sub-bass range.
20Hz is considered the normal low frequency limit of human hearing. When pure sine waves are reproduced under ideal conditions and at very high volume, a human listener will be able to identify tones as low as 12Hz.
Sub-bass energy is popular in dance music and dub reggae, where the low frequencies involve energy from the kick drum, the bass guitar and electronic synthesizers. Other genres such as dubstep or drum and bass often feature the whole bass-line reproduced in sub-bass frequencies.
