My original advice was for a regular turntable. You're obviously unfamiliar, otherwise you'd know how easy it is to ground these. When it was revealed to be a console, I said it wasn't worth any repair. But if it's what the girlfriend wants, then logic is irrelevant.


No mistake. Voltage pushes current. Look up Ohm's law.

 

And, Bravo! You know how to connect a turntable to an amplifier! But you couldn't figure out that hbkshin isn't referring to separate components but a combined unit. I'm not gonna address hbkshin's issue anymore I think that I've gone over that enough and I hope he figures it out without too much trouble.

I was just beginning to see the sunshine after the last 5 of these bickering sessions. About that time again I guess... :cloud:

Look for a stereo repair shop. They're scarce these days but they still exist. I just had my old Kenwood receiver serviced by my local repair guys.

Honestly, I'd scrap everything electronic in there and use it as a stereo cabinet for some more modern stuff (mid-late 70's stuff is great). Still vintage, will still use that awesome cabinet but will sound way better.

This guy went all out but it can be done a lot quicker and easier.

If those are 10.5D. click where it says "GMMcL" and then click "Send Private message."
As for the CEO, all non-profit means is that they can't post a profit. They make a lot of money just like everyone else. And an institution that large needs talented leadership. Just try to recruit someone capable of being CEO of an organization as complex as any for profit corporation for something less than that.

Heard from a friend that the Scottsdale area is where it's at for thrifting. Curious to know if it's really as good as they were saying.
