      Thanks. I’ll contact them. You had suggested in the forums that the brakes may need to be inspected or changed and the caps should be replaced. I’m hoping that the headstock does not need to be changed since they are expensive and may not even be available

      Hi Kent,
      You are admirably the best guy when it comes to vintage Technics components. I live in DC area and want to get a Technics RS 1500U R2R serviced by a competent tech. I purchased it used from a guy in Japan who only knew how to power it up. I would prefer to have it checked before I start to enjoy it. Any suggestions in my area or neighboring states?
      Thanks.

      Billy 75, Get a ReVox. B 77 if possible, or a A 77 if rebuilt properly. Caps all need replacement.

      I'd like to discuss the pros & cons of a couple of R2R decks I'm considering, i.e Tandberg or Revox

      Hi Kent, What are the compatible and then Best styli for the Stanton 600 body?

      Are there any Shibata type replacements for it?

      I wanted to apologize for my post I was trying to be cute in a fun way by after sending it I thought it sounded condescending. You brought up many points that I've only vaguely considered. . You have inspired me to look into what our local jazz station (88.3 KSDS San Diego City Collage) is doing today with TTs, MCs, MMs and DACs. I know they got a grant recently to digitize their vast LP collection.

      Thanks Kent! The 67 is better looking too.

      I think the HH Scott would be a sidegrade. Both are terrific tuners. Keep your MR 67,

      Hello Kent, I am sorry to bother you but I have been reading your posts regarding tube tuners for some time and value your comments.

      I have a lovely McIntosh MR67 that Terry Dewick has worked his magic on. It is (in my opinion) a spectacular sounding tuner. I live in a suburban (Philadelphia) area and the majority of the stations I listen to are L.O.S. no more that 7-13 miles away.

      I have just been offered a really nice refurbished Scott 310E and I am curious if you feel that the Scott would be any kind of improvement sonically. I am not a collector but I would love to have them both. Realistically however I would most likely keep only one.

      Thanks!

      Hi Kent,
      I have been looking for information about Griffin Bokei speakers, and you chimed in about some gb labeled electronics. I recently got a pair of speakers that were brought from Japan in the early sixties, about 2cuft with 12in woofers marked 4D-1A. The woofers have leather surrounds and the tweeters are bronze painted cast horns. The cabs have teak gridwork grills, just gorgeous. Sadly, I am on bad dialup(Vt=4th world), so pictures will require a trip to the library. I would appreciate any help .
      Thanks for your time, David

      I just read your bio. Just so happens I built the new room to be wheelchair accessible. I have a friend down in Georgia who is a EE in a wheelchair (he rebuilt my TEAC 4070). Level access from driveway with a 2" drop into room, 36" wide door.

      Hey Kent! Glad to hear there may be a few more folks around here. I would love to have you come over and check out my listening room & system. The TVAS has never really gotten off the ground but I still hold out hope.

      Hi, I am tying to decide on what trigger to pull on my Stanton 681eee cart and it seems the best way to go is with a re tip from expert stylus in uk! I really like your post and responses that is why I am contacting you. John aka Cylontymany
