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 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 11 hrs.

Partial disassembly of 'Arm Lift Mechanism' , cleaned and re-lubed

Fresh, New and Correct 'Arm Mechanism' belt installed.

End of Play lift and return set with oscilloscope at test point 4 and adj internal VR9.

Arm transport shuttle control cleaned and re-lubed

Lateral arm motion rails and guide rollers cleaned and re-lubed

Arm lift motor re-lubed

Tone-arm Lead-In adjusted until perfect for mid point lead in

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

Rubber mat still supple and flexible with no hardening.

Disassembled and re-built feet / pods

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 elliptically cut Diamond, magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm for it on the ORIGINAL PIONEER PL-L1000 headshell. (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.

Cartridge / head shell overhang adjusted using shop calibration scale.

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-L1000, Linear Tracking, Direct-Drive, Fully-Automatic turntable. Following the above restoration, it looks fabulous, now functions correctly and performs well.

From the Vinyl Engine website page on this table,
"The Pioneer PL-L1000 comes fitted with a linear tracking tone-arm which traces the sound grooves on the record linearly in the same way that the master cutting machine cuts the grooves in the first place.  This means that the linear system is superior to conventional offset tone-arms in many ways:

(1) There is no tracking error thus preventing the generation of harmonic distortion.
(2) In principle, there is no generation of inside force and so the crosstalk and intermodulation distortion are improved and the positioning of the sound image is stabilized.
(3) The tone-arm pipe is linear for optimum lateral balance.
(4) It is possible to shorten the effective length of the tone-arm and so this feature makes for a low equivalent mass and high rigidity.
This combination also reduces resonance in the parts and compound resonance.   Sub-functions of the PL-L1000 include auto lead-in, auto-return, auto cut, quick repeat, quick play, quick stop, stylus pressure direct readout, arm height adjustment, cueing device and free stop hinges."


This table is a 'blast' to use. As the owner of Oak Tree Enterprises, I personally auditioned and did the final testing on this table. I had a few further 'fine tune / tweaks' done by the technician and probably played more than 30 albums on this.

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

Platter replaced as the original had a 'few hundredths' of an inch of 'run-out, then tested for 'true flat' and no 'run-out'. Most folks probably wouldn't have noticed, but I did after playing for a while. So back to the shop for another original platter it went.

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

We also installed and adjusted a new, Audio Technica elliptically cut Diamond, magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm for it on the ORIGINAL PIONEER / PHASE LINEAR headshell.

 Classic, well built, Philips 212, quiet running / belt drive, Quarter-Automatic
* stereo turntable! 'Two piece' platter to reduce resonance for quieter performance. Suspended "sub-chassis" Plinth for damping outside vibrations. Damped straight tone arm. From the original paperwork
, "The motor speed is continuously controlled and kept constant by solid state circuits in combination with a tacho-generator which is directly coupled to the motor shaft.
The platter and the pick-up arm are mounted on a sub-chassis, which is damped, spring suspended from the rigidly mounted main chassis, absorbing mechanical shocks and external vibrations."

Looks fabulous, works and sounds great!
Very Solid performer.

These are great tables to use. Technics Fully Automatic - Linear tracking, SL-J2, stereo turntable. These are great turntables for overall quality and convenience and a "Jacket size" footprint, meaning it's barely larger than an LP jacket! Essentially "Close and Play". Technics' Linear tables by nature are great if you have cats or children as they must be closed to operate and when the cover is lifted the fragile parts (ie the tone arm and cartridge goes up with the lid. Very dust free, due to lid / cover design and almost impossible to damage your records with!

 - Super quiet, Direct Drive
 - Programmable cut selection
 - Repeat play function

Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit  cleaning inside and out, lubricating mechanism, adjusting tone arm and testing performance. Speed checked and verified for accuracy with both internal strobe and the shop calibrated strobe disc. Super quality Gimbal tone-arm bearing. Tracks grooves well. Original dust cover just had fresh buff, and looks decent, with only minor scuffing (see photos above). Original hinges and hinge tabs in fine and functioning condition and holds dust cover in the 'up' position fairly well. No cracks, chips, or hairlines. All four original 'shock absorber' feet intact. Original rubber platter mat, lays perfectly flat with no blistering, bubbles or warps. We also inspected and re-installed existing Pickering DLE, elliptically cut diamond stylus, on the, P-mount head shell.  (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.

Most of our turntables are 'component turntables', meaning that you connect them to YOUR EXISTING stereo systems' 'Phono Input' or (another input, utilizing an external 'Phono Pre-Amp').

What...you DON'T have an existing component stereo system? Not to fear. All you need is a pair of powered speakers (think the small speakers that came with your computer), and an inexpensive Phono Pre-amp.
You probably already have a pair of 'computer speakers' you can use (or grab a pair on your next trip to a local thrift store), and we have inexpensive phono pre-amps for less than $40, including all the cables you need, that will work.

We've tested this set-up and it works great!  Give us a call for further info, or to order a turntable and the balance of what you would need.

Professional DJ / Club table. Quality tool for the 'long haul'! The Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB DJ turntable. Similar in design to some of the vintage turntable models, such as the Kenwood KD-550 'concrete base', the Sony PS-T1, and the Technics SL-1500, SL-1600MK2 or SL-D2 turntable models. This professional stereo turntable features a super high-torque, direct-drive motor for quick start-ups yet is perfectly quiet. Classic 'S' shaped tone arm with 'universal' head-shell that allows mounting of most any 'quality', 1/2' cartridge, either MM (moving magnet) or MC (moving coil). Tone-arm mounted in high quality 4-point, Gimbol bearing.

The AT-LP1240-USB plays back 33-1/3, 45 and 78 RPM records (78 is selected by pressing both 'speed' select buttons simultaneously). Its built-in phono preamp enables the turntable to be connected to a wide variety of music and home entertainment systems, powered speakers, and to A/V receivers that do not include a dedicated phono input (de-featable for 'old schooool' and 'REAL' receivers and integrated amplifiers that 'DO' have a built-in phono pre-amp. The turntable includes PC- and Mac-compatible Audacity software that converts the audio on a record to MP3, WAV or other format digital audio files.

NEW UPDATE--- We're now including the Audio-Technica AT-95E, MM, Elliptically cut diamond cartridge with tables purchased from us at Oak Tree Vintage.

Table has great mass at almost 30 lbs!

If you have a 'REAL receiver', ie, an old-school, vintage, 2-channel receiver or integrated amp or pre-amp with a phono pre built-in, then you can flip a switch and bypass the 'built-in' phono preamp.
- USB outputconnects directly to your computer for plug-&-play use
- Forward or reverse play (this is a DJ feature, and if you value your vinyl or cartridge, DON'T USE 'Reverse'! If you have a crappy cartridge and are playing 'Frisbees', then 'go for it' if you're so inclined!

Tables with ceramic cartridges can be connected to any AUX, Tape input, CD input, Computer Sound Card input or any input on any receiver / integrated amplifier regardless of whether it has a phono pre-amp or not. 
Tables with ceramic cartridges and non-adjustable tone arms, are generally not recommended for critical listening situations, recordings and / or if your record collection is in above average condition and you want to keep it that way. If any of the previous criteria apply, you should consider one of the higher quality turntables listed above  utilizing magnetic cartridges and fully adjustable, more critically designed tone arms.

 Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit cleaning inside and out. Entire automatic mechanism was disassembled, de-greased, cleaned and re-lubed, including; the 'Actuating Slide and Pawl', and both plates, reconditioned all rubber parts including the 'intermediate' idler wheel, motor disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, 'cushion ring', 'thrust washer' disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, 'trip pawl' cleaned for 'smooth end of album cycle, then he re-set "lead-in & lead-out" tone arm adjustment and test played. Idler position centered for more positive speed positioning w/ selector. New stylus installed on 'magnetic' cartridge. Dust cover buffed for improved appearance. Table cosmetics addressed and repaired as necessary. Tracking and Bias force also re-set to 2g. Restoration entailed approx 8+ hrs w/ followed with about 20+ hours of testing w/ many albums (mostly because we enjoyed having a 'quality' changer on one of the test stations to listen to).
 
Original Platter warp & bubble / warp free. All functions work great! Only cosmetic issue is that the original dust cover has a few 'closed cracks' around the logo, and some 'melt' marks from old, 'reactive' RCA cables laying on it. The issues are actually not too distracting (see above photos). Dust cover hinges up and stays upright fine.  
As this turntable has a 'magnetic cartridge' (unlike most 'stacker / changers' which have 'crystal / ceramic / piezo' pickups) you can readily connect this table to any receiver or Integrated amplifier input. For a basic system, or wanting to get introduced or re-introduced to stacking vinyl records, this is a great table.
Stylus in fine shape.
Starts as it should, and end's as it should with no 'end groove hang up'!
Following always necessary restoration, unit was test played thru 20+ cycles and tested with up to 6X LP's stacked with no issues!!! (normally we can only get about 3 on a stack with no issues). Works beautifully!

Beautiful condition BSR  / McDonald 'Professional Series', 2360W, fully automatic changer phonograph. Plays 33 & 45 RPM records. Selects 7", 10" or 12" record size.

- Pitch Control (VERY few stacker / changers have this)

- Stacker / Changer capable on 33's. Sorry, but we do not have a '45' stacker spindle for this one.

- Record Repeat Function
- Record Size selector- allows 'Auto' or 'Stacking' of any size record at any speed!
- Adjustable Tracking force

You probably already have a pair of 'computer speakers' you can use (or grab a pair on your next trip to a local thrift store), and we have inexpensive phono pre-amps for less than $40, including all the cables you need, that will work.

We've tested this set-up and it works great!  Give us a call for further info, or to order a turntable and the balance of what you would need.


 

 

 

 

 

 


Note: The "Changer / Stacker" functions work best when used with pre 1980's albums due to the 
larger center hole diameter of older records. They also can sometimes work with up to 4 or 5 albums, 
but function best with 3 or less stacked at a time.
Also, for optimum performance, special a special stylus is required for 78 RPM records. While you will get sound from a 33 / 45 RPM stylus, it is best not to use the same stylus for both 78's and then for 33 1/3's / 45's.

Concerned about how your turntable will be packed for safe transit.
You should be!!!
The vast majority of turntables shipped from individual sellers, especially the one's from on-line auctions, are damaged in transit due to inadequate / inappropriate packing.
It is VERY difficult to do successfully and most folks do not have the experience or materials to do it anything close to adequately.

 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.

 Tone-arm 'lift height' adjusted.

  Tone-arm Cueing mechanism tested.

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

Original dustcover had a fresh buff, and looks pretty good minor issues. Hinges intact as well as 'strut'.

We also had the platter 'machined' to re-fresh the 'brushed' look on the edge / side-rim and to remove surface corrosion.

Original rubber mat, still supple and flexible with no hardening.

Our turntable tech also re-installed and adjusted the existing 'Sansui SC-32' elliptical stylus, magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm for it, adjusting 'overhang'.  (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!!

Original dustcover has some 'spray paint' spatters on the inside. We buffed the outside, but on a table under $500, we didn't address it any further. It could be improved by the purchaser, or for a additional amount, we could improve it. Functionally it's perfect, as are the original hinges (see photos above). Hinges hold it upright as well
  
Decent, 'utilitarian' quality Fisher Studio-Standard Series, MT-125, Semi-Automatic, Direct-Drive turntable. Low-Mass, straight tone-arm with ORIGINAL Fisher, 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. Only a couple minor issues with it. One is that the 'tone-arm' lock (used when moving the table) is not intact, so when moving, tone-arm will need to be secured with a wire tie. The other is cosmetic in that there is 'something' spattered on the inside of the dust cover. Due to the price point of the table, we did not choose to invest the time to rectify that. Decently well-built table delivers high quality performance.

Fisher MT-125 Turntable Features:


- Direct-Drive platter system for ultra stable operation, 'quick' startup, and easier record cleaning
- Semi-Automatic operation

And with the Audio-Technica, elliptically cut, diamond stylus cartridge installed, it's 'Ready to Go'!

'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

 Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit cleaning inside and out.
Previous, internal 'hack' repair job was 'reversed' and corrected with original parts. Entire automatic mechanism was disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, including; the 'Actuating Slide and Pawl', and both plates, reconditioned all rubber parts including the 'intermediate' idler wheel, motor disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, 'cushion ring', 'thrust washer' disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, 'trip pawl' cleaned for 'smooth end of album cycle, then he re-set "lead-in & lead-out" tone arm adjustment and test played. Restoration entailed approx 8+ hrs w/ followed with about 8 hours of testing.
 
Original Platter warp & bubble / warp free. All functions work great! Only issue is that the original dust cover, while functional and included has a lot of 'crazing' and isn't going to 'win any beauty contests'.  
You can readily connect this table to any receiver or Integrated amplifier input. For a basic system, or wanting to get introduced or re-introduced to stacking vinyl records, this is a great table.

   Features include:

   
 - 3-Speed Turntable, 33, 45 & 78 RPM (correct 78 playback would require a more appropriate 78RPM cartridge / stylus)
 - Stacker / Changer capable (including ability to 'stack' 45's and 78's)
 - Ceramic Cartridge equipped
 - Fully-Automatic operation
- Record Repeat Function
 - Record Size selector- allows 'Auto' or 'Stacking' of any size record at any speed!

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

We installed a fresh / new, Audio-Technica AT-92, Elliptical diamond stylus, magnetic cartridge and optimized the tone arm for it. (This table does have a 1/2", "universal" mount head shell, so any standard, 1/2" mount cartridge will fit 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.

Original included, but we did not address it's cosmetics. Could be much improved, but that would add considerably to the tables cost. It is perfectly functional. Hinges hold it upright as well

  Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit cleaning inside and out, cleaning and re-lubricating mechanism, adjusting tone arm height, lead OUT and 'auto return' mechanism and testing performance.

  Entire tone-arm guide tube removed, all the old, coagulated silicon lube on the tone-arm mechanism removed and new silicon applied. The 'worm' drive gears also cleaned of old lube and re-lubed. All of these operations are a must on these linear tables.

  We also removed the motor spindle, cleaned the bearing / bushing and re-lubed. (A plus with this JVC linear table over some others is that it is not prone to the internal plastic assemblies shrinking and cracking like MANY of the other linear tables. Trust us, we've been into most of them internally).

 A new arm drive belt installed to replace the old hardened / in-flexible unit.

  Internal speed pots, adjusted for centering and speed checked and verified for accuracy with our factory test strobe disc against built-in strobe monitor.

  Internal platter speed potentiometers cleaned and adjusted. Speed checked and verified for accuracy with factory test strobe disc.

  'Auto' mechanism adjusted and tested.

  Platter / motor suspension mechanisms rebuilt on all for corners of internal chassis.

  Dust cover hinges are perfect and still hold cover in it's 'upright' position.

  Original rubber mat, still supple and flexible with no hardening. Original feet in fine condition.

  We also re-installed and adjusted the existing, Audio-Technica ATU402LC, 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.

All functions work great! Again, this table looks and works great!

This is the similar to a turntable I have connected to my Home Theater / Surround Sound system and have had for years. Great for when I want to just "spin" some vinyl and am not "critically listening". Again, this table has been completely gone through.
Only cosmetic issue is some minor 'bubbling' of the 'matte laminate' top covering that was not able to be 'addressed' during refurb (won't show up in photos).
Following the above described work, it's ready to go! Great table for all around use. Measures 13.5" wide x 14.25" deep x 4.5" tall (closed) and weighs 12.5 lbs unpacked. Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty.
