It has arrived, and it's still in 1 piece. Wingnuts had been tightened, feet had been locked, platter very carefully packed. The coating on the platter rim is perfect. So, wingnuts loosened, feet loosened, table levelled, set up arm, pressed the power button, pressed the start button and it lives! The speed is very stable, phew, sounds pretty average, hmm. Only had a quick listen last night so need to change the headshell and cart (came with a Shure 75ED type 2), the stylus looks in good condition under the scope but it may well be some cheap after market crap.
Couple of questions.
The bias weight, seems quite loose on the rod, is this normal? It stays in place but if I touch it it slides a mm or so quite easily back up the rod before coming back to rest in the original position, it's as if the inside of the weight moves within itself?
The bias rod, is it supposed to just flop down when you loosen the knob?
What's the weight on the inside of the arm at the arm rest for, to balance the arm and was this set at the factory? There doesn't appear to be any adjustment on it so I should just leave it alone?
The user manual talks about an 'arm height adjustment lever', guess this was just a fancy allen key which has probably long since been lost on many of these TT's?
Hopefully I'll get a couple of hours tonight to play around, think I'll just stick my Oyaide headshell with Shure V15 III Jico SAS on it and see how it sounds.
Im in the process of buying a Project 10 RPM turntable ,does anyone know if it is possible to replace the Carbon tone arm, if so what would be a straight swap with no alteration needed,this is just for future reference as will try the project arm out first
.Havent read any reviews on the arm so does anyone know of any or have had experience with this arm ,good or bad.
Hi - I know this is an old topic but I have a similar issue with a Pro-ject Perspex6 that I purchased as an ex-demo.
Bit of a story - purchased it in mid 2016 - started to assemble - realised the 'sorbothene pad' was missing - chased up the supplier who I vaguely remember eventually tracked one down & posted it to me. Soon after, we started renovations, daughters, wedding, overseas visitors, holidays, work.....life got in the way so the TT has sat unloved for months.
Now.....trying to set it up again......can I find the 'sorbothene pad' that (I think) was sent to me??? - NO!!
I can't even remember what it looks like.
Reading the above, I wonder if I am also be missing the "....metal cup [that] sits in the hole..."!
Can someone who has a Perspex 6 PLEASE PLEASE sent me a photo of what the motor should look like with the cup & pad in place - as there seems to be no info on-line about this anyway - surprisingly. Maybe lift up the motor slightly to show the mounting detail.
Attached are some pics of what I have for reference.
THANKS ANYONE WHO CAN PROVIDE INFO.
