SHIPPED TO ILLINOIS

Our technician has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through and 'Certified' this unit cleaning inside and out, COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLING, cleaning and re-lubricating internal mechanism (including BOTH internal Rotating Plates, the lower of which had fresh 500,000 Silicone gel installed), tone arm bearing disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, adjusting tone arm height, lead OUT and adjusting multiple internal springs related to 'auto return' mechanism and testing performance.
Total Technician Time
to restore this table back to original condition
~24 HOURS!!!
(we have owned MANY of this series (ie; PL-40, PL41, PL-50, PL-51, PL-60, PL-61, PL-55, PL-55DX etc) and we know what is inside, what is wrong inside, and what HAS TO BE DONE in order to have one of these that will run properly for any length of time, and be dependable. We've never had one that ran well, nor for very long without this work being done, especially to the 'rotator plates', arm bearing and thrust bearing)


 

Gimbal bearing, counter weight and anti-skating all adjusted and verified for accuracy.

'Auto-return' mechanism EXTENSIVELY restored, adjusted and tested as mentioned above (this is a MUST DO on this series of Pioneer tables and takes MANY HOURS to correctly and thoroughly accomplish).

'Speed Selector' mechanism completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed.

'Arm Lift / Cuing' mechanism cleaned of old damping gel (most always leaks out on early Pioneer PL's) and fresh 500,000 silicone gel inserted (this is a MUST DO on this series of Pioneer tables).

Original motor was replaced with one from another PL-50 we had, after we noticed about 1.5-2 dB of noise we felt shouldn't have been there, even after cleaning and re-lubing. The replacement motor was silent following cleaning and re-lubing.

Original tone-arm was replaced with one from another PL-50 we had, after we noticed a bit too much 'play' we felt shouldn't have been there.

'Crumbly' original thrust bearing was replaced with a new 'nylon' bearing (this is a must do on this series). Platter spindle bearing cleaned of old lube and re-lubed.

Fresh, New and Correct belt installed.

Tested / analyzed and passed for motor noise and 60Hz hum.

Rubber mat still supple and flexible with no hardening.

Original feet in fine condition.

Cartridge / head shell overhang adjusted using shop calibration scale.

Original dustcover had a 3-Stage buff, and looks INCREDIBLE. Hinges adjusted to hold it upright as well.

Original Real Walnut Wood veneer base cleaned and rubbed with Howards 'Restore-a-Finish' followed by Howards 'Feed-n-Wax'.

Platter speed checked and verified for 99.1+% accuracy with our factory test strobe disc following installation of correct belt.

We also re-installed and adjusted the existing, Sansui, elliptically cut Diamond, magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm for it. (If you prefer an up-grade you may also choose from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost.)
You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.


Unit tested with our myriad of test records, one of which included; Shures' 'Cartridge Obstacle Course' record

Unit test cycled through 30 LPs flawlessly

Great performing, sounding and INCREDIBLE looking Pioneer PL-50, Belt Drive, Semi-Automatic turntable. Following the above restoration, it looks fabulous, now functions correctly and performs well.

These are very sought after Pioneer turntables due to their size / stature / mass, the platter mass and their belt drive system.
Again, our turntable tech has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through this table (total tech time ~24 hours), and following restoration was tested for speed accuracy, rumble, wow & flutter, noise isolation, tone-arm return function and lubed internal mechanism. Original dust cover is in fabulous shape after a 3-Stage plastic buff / hand polish. Table looks good and works great! Comes with a great performing, Sansui, Elliptically cut, diamond stylus cartridge. Ready to play!!! (not for use at room temps below about mid 60's, due to lubes) (If you prefer an up-grade you may also choose from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost.)

We have just had the table completely gone through by our turntable technician, cleaning inside and out, lubricating drive motor and mechanism, adjusting tone arm height, lead OUT and 'auto return' mechanism and testing performance. Fresh, new belt installed for trouble-free service. Speed tested / checked to +/- 1% accuracy with our factory test strobe disc. Gimbal bearing, counter weight and anti-skating all adjusted and verified for accuracy. Stop mechanism adjusted and tested. All functions work great! Original dust cover while included has not been buffed and is in 'as-found' condition currently, but is certainly 'functional'. Dust cover hinges are strong and hold cover in it's 'upright' position fine. Original rubber mat, still supple and flexible with no hardening.
We also installed and adjusted a brand new Audio-Technica, AT-92E, Elliptical cut Diamond, magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm for it.  (If you prefer an up-grade you may also choose from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost.) You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits. Again, this table looks and works great!.....


HEY, WHY ALL THE 'X'd' OUT / OMITTED SPECS AND TEXT?


......It would be almost unheard of to find a Pioneer PL-514 turntable that did not have the natural rubber feet deteriorated and this one is no example, so that is why we are including a set of fresh, 2", 50 Duro, Sorbothane hemispheres to isolate it from it's environment (it is generally accepted that Sorbothane simulates vibration isolation properties similar to water).

We have just had the table completely gone through by our turntable technician, cleaning inside and out, cleaning and re-lubricating internal mechanism, adjusting tone arm height, lead OUT and 'auto return' mechanism and testing performance. Internal speed pots, adjusted for centering and speed checked and verified for accuracy with our factory test strobe disc against built-in strobe monitor. External / 'user' adjustable platter speed potentiometers cleaned for smooth speed transition and 'glitch-free' adjustment. Gimbal bearing, counter weight and anti-skating all adjusted and verified for accuracy. Stop mechanism adjusted and tested. All functions work great! Unfortunately, the dust cover was missing when the turntable arrived, so none is included. Original rubber mat, still supple and flexible with no hardening.
We also installed and adjusted a brand new Audio-Technica, AT-92E, Elliptical cut Diamond, magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm for it.  (If you prefer an up-grade you may also choose from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost.)

The Pioneer PL-518 is one of the most famous and 'sought after' of the "classic" Pioneer Turntables. We get about 1 good example of this model once every 3 years, or so.
It would be almost unheard of to find a Pioneer PL-518 turntable that did not have the natural rubber feet deteriorated and this one is no example, so that is why we are including a set of fresh, 2", 50 Duro, Sorbothane hemispheres to isolate it from it's environment (it is generally accepted that Sorbothane simulates vibration isolation properties similar to water).....

This was one of Pioneer's top of the line tables for this period. We have had ONLY 2 of these in the last 18+ years!

Our technician has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through and 'Certified' this unit which involves disassembly (not an easy task on this table), cleaning inside and out, COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLING, cleaning and re-lubricating internal mechanisms and the balance of efforts listed below. Total technician time to restore 7 hrs.

Entire table disassembled (see above 'bench photos')

Platter speed checked and verified for 100% accuracy with our factory test strobe disc following above restoration.

Platter tested for 'true flat' and no 'run-out' (we had one with 'run-out', that required a new platter).

Original dustcover had a 3-Stage buff, and looks INCREDIBLE. Hinges adjusted to hold it upright as well.

We also installed and adjusted a new, Audio Technica AT-95 'GREEN', elliptically cut Diamond, magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm for it. (If you prefer an up-grade you may also choose from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost.)
You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.

This was Pioneer's 'Flag Ship' turntable for this period. We have had 2 of these (one was the Phase Linear version), for over 6 years, waiting for the 'right technician' to challenge them. FINALLY, our current senior technician was up to the task, and restored this one beautifully and CORRECTLY!

Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit cleaning inside and out, cleaning out gelled lubes (a MUST DO on all pre-owned / vintage turntables) and re-lubricating mechanism investing ~8 hours of technician time!

Tone-arm height adjusted

 Tone-arm 'lift height' adjusted.

 Tone-arm Auto functions restored, adjusted and tested.

Tone-arm lead In / Out adjusted.

 'Anti-Skate' mechanism, cleaned and re-lubed w/ silicone lube.

 Gimbal bearing, counter weight and anti-skating all adjusted and verified for accuracy.

 
Entire table was cleaned inside and out.

 'Quartz Locked' Speed checked and verified for accuracy with our shop strobe disc.

Tested / analyzed and passed for motor noise and 60Hz hum after additional 'up-grade' of ground cable

 
We also installed a Shure "Hi-Track" Cartridge, with a NEW Shure M95ED, Elliptically cut Diamond stylus, magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm for it (aligned with Stevens Protractor). (If you prefer an up-grade you may also choose from our selection of new Audio Technica cartridges that we can also set up and ship with it for the additional cartridge cost.) You can readily connect this table to any receiver, Integrated amplifier with a standard magnetic phono input, or a Pre-amp. To connect to computer for burning CD's just order one of our inexpensive Phono Pre-Amps and cable kits.

Unit test cycled through 20+ LPs flawlessly.

Original dustcover had a fresh buff, and looks great, with only a couple of 'platter scuffs' on the left side, front edge and top (was probably transported / moved at one time without removing the platter...oops. see photos above).

Original dustcover hinges work great and 'hold' dust cover upright fine.
  
Great quality Pioneer PL-S70, Fully-Automatic, Direct-Drive, Quartz Locked turntable. Low-Mass, straight tone-arm with ORIGINAL Pioneer, angled, 1/2" standard mount head-shell for low record / stylus wear and accurate tracking. Plays 33 or 45 RPM vinyl. High quality Gimbal bearing allows for critical adjustment of cartridge tracking / anti-skating. Tone-arm lock intact and functioning properly. This was the "Top of the Line" for the Pioneer "PL-S" series at the time. Well-built table delivers high quality performance.
