ü 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)


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

ü '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).

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

ü '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).

ü 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.

ü 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.

ü '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.

ü Fresh, New and Correct belt installed.

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

ü Rubber mat still supple and flexible with no hardening.

ü Original feet in fine condition.

ü Cartridge / head shell ‘overhang’ adjusted using shop calibration scale.

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

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

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

ü 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.

ü Unit test cycled through 30 LP’s flawlessly

ü 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 ~16 hours of technician time!

ü Tone-arm height adjusted

ü Tone-arm 'lift height' adjusted.

ü Fresh 500,000 silicone damping in the cuing mechanism and cuing speed adjusted.

ü  Tone-arm ‘Auto’ functions restored, adjusted and tested.

ü Tone-arm lead ‘In / Out’ adjusted.

ü Entire table was cleaned inside and out.

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

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

 
ü We also re-installed, the existing ADC LM100-MK-III, 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.

ü Unit test cycled through 10 LP’s flawlessly.

ü Original dustcover had a fresh buff, and looks great.

ü Original dustcover hinges were made of plastic and suffered what pretty much ALL vintage Sony dust cover hinges suffer from, 'Spring Blowout'. Our tech found a set of 'ALL METAL' hinges to replace them with, for years of trouble-free service. Only one 'very' minor issue as of a result. The dust cover sometimes has to be 're-set' on the hinge slide to fully seat down against the plinth (see above photos).

 Classic, well built, Philips 212, quiet running / belt drive, Semi-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 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!

ü 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.

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.

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!

Professional features for DJ use in nightclubs, touring & mobile applications:

- Direct drive high-torque motor
- Quartz Locked Speed Control System or 'Manual' Strobe Speed controls
*- Adjustable Braking Rate (0.2 – 6.0 seconds)
*- Adjustable Starting Rate (0.2 – 6.0 seconds)
*- Dual Platter / Motor 'Start' / 'Stop' controls
- Fully-Manual operation
- Selectable 33/45/78 RPM speeds
(you will need to acquire a stylus / cartridge designed for playing '78 RPM' records to utilize that feature to it's fullest)
- Professional weight cast aluminum platter with slip mat (no PLASTIC platters here, unlike many of the NEW tables out there!)
- Classic 'S' style tone-arm
- High quality 4-point Gimbol bearing
- ½-inch mount universal head shell
- Strobe monitored, adjustable platter speed
- Fluid damped tone arm cuing
- Adjustable tone-arm counter weight
- Adjustable 'Anti-Skating' control
*- Adjustable Tone-Arm bearing height

- Internal Built-in Phono Pre-Amp of decent quality so if you MUST use this with some sort of 'home-theater-surround-sound -5.1, 7.2, or 8.BR549 receiver' that the manufacturer forgot to include the phono pre-amp on. 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 output—connects 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!

CHANGER / STACKER,
78 AND 16 RPM,
& CERAMIC CARTRIDGE TABLES LISTED BELOW. 

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. Please email or phone with any questions.

 

SORRY, NO CHANGER / STACKERS RESTORED / REFURBISHED AT THIS TIME.
CHECK BACK AND / OR SEND AN EMAIL TO BE ADDED TO THE 'WISH LIST'

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

ü  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.

ü  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.

ü  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).

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

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

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

ü  'Auto' mechanism adjusted and tested.

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

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

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

ü  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.

ü  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.

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

ü  External / 'user' adjustable platter speed potentiometers cleaned for smooth speed transition and 'glitch-free' adjustment.

ü  Gimbal bearing, counter weight and anti-skating all adjusted and verified for accuracy. 'Auto' mechanism adjusted and tested.

ü  While the original dust cover just had fresh buff and looks acceptable.

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

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

ü  We also re-installed and adjusted the existing, Audio-Technica ATU4030LC, 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!
