Very nice Ed.  I'm guessing those are the Sansui's on CL earlier?  Very nice looking set.

Yessir... Funny thing is I dismissed them when I first saw them. Then I checked what they are selling for. Those beauties will be paying for my wife's and my tickets to the Firefly music fest.
I am confident that an SL-1200 is capable of outperforming turntables of much higher expense with minor modification.

The amp is great. A little contact cleaner and no scratchiness... Tuner on the other hand has some demons. Ahem.... Anders?  ;D

This weeks moving sale find.  The motor needs a cap, but the idlers are in good shape and the mechanical functions work.  A tone arm upgrade is in order.  Anyone have any suggestions that won't break the bank?

The 'table is a Rec-O-Kut Rondine JR model L 34.  Idler driven, the motor looks like it could run a washing machine.  It uses separate idlers for 33 & 45 rpm, via a very simple, fool proof lever to change speeds. From what I have learned it compares to the Thorens TD 124 and Girrard 301, just never became as well known.  There are a number of mods discussed on AK and other sites, if I can find time to tinker with it.  While it cleaned up nicely, For now it needs a motor cap to get it running

This past weekend I found a minty Apple Time Capsule (500 gig), which I'll hopefully be using as a wireless music server. $50
I also found a really great condition iPod Nano 5th gen 16 gig, with brand new Apple head phones and charger. $10

FYI, the Regent Square community yard sale is this Saturday. Info here http://www.regentsquare-rsca.org/NewYSFAQ.htm

I would never sell a time capsule unless I knew for sure all the data was erased and overwritten with something else... Nevertheless 50 bucks for an Apple time capsule is decent pricing.
