    Made a trade with another AK'er for a Technics SP-25 and lucked out and found a inexpensive plinth for it on eBay. I've mounted a couple of 10" arms, an SA-750E and an old Grace G-340.

I still have some cartridge tweaking/fine tuning to do, but sounding pretty good so far!

    I've replaced my Dual 1249 with a Dual 1229. My current stable is the 1229 and a B&O Beogram 1602 with MMC 20E cartridge.

    Just added last Saturday. Dual 1219. The AT VM540ML is a perfect match for the 1219's tone arm.
    This is the best turntable I've ever owned. Period.

    Newbie here...but as I said in my intro post, not new to audio!
    Right now I'm using a Forsell table with Simiko Celebration cartridge. The motor started making a lot of noise, so I bought a VPI TNT 5 with flywheel and SDS speed control. I am using the motor and speed control on the Forsell now. Love that Simiko!
    I am looking at building my last table using the VPI plinth, air bladder suspension, and the "tri-pulley"...I like the idea of removing the side load from the platter bushing! Arm and platter/bear type TBD.
    Also have a classic Micro Seiki "full choice" with the 2" brass vacuum platter sitting In my room...but that's not mine, just storing it for a friend.

    I have 4 Dual TT's that don't work. The manual 502 has the double speed motor issue and none of the auto functions work on the other 3.

    I feel your pain. The 1219 in my pic above, using the start/stop lever is asking for trouble. Plays fine in manual mode, auto return functions perfectly. I'm having issues with the contacts in the headshell, too. At least that's relatively easy to fix.
    Have a 1218 that doesn't work. And, a 1229Q that, uh, doesn't work either. I have that one packed up, ready to send to notransistors when he's ready for it. I haven't tried to get the 1218 working yet, so it has an excuse.
    Meanwhile, a 1019 that works flawlessly, ditto on a 1209 I'm giving away to a friend next week.
    And the glorious 1219.

    So... advice please... I have some vintage classic pieces and was wondering what they might be worth and where would be the best place to post them. All of the items are basically BRAND NEW and have never been used, mounted or connected. So while they are old (New Old Stock?), they are virtually brand new:

    Grace 747 Gyro Master Tonearm with original box and all parts. It has been taken out of the box to be just sit atop a turntable for the sake of taking pictures.
    AudioQuest Leopard ToneArm cable- brand new.
    Ortofon MC2000 (NOT the MKII). This is the original classic audiophile moving coil in its original presentation box with all accessories, graphs, tools, etc. Never mounted.
    Ortofon T-2000 matching step up transformer for the MC2000.

    All were purchased by myself new. Any thoughts on what I might list them for and where?
