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!



Whaoouu!

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...
