Hmmmm.....I thought that when I clicked on the file and it opened a new tab that it was somehow directly linked to vinylengine and that because I was logged into them that I could see it. I'll have to try to send the file to redstone when I fire up the laptop again.

Redstone, it is the operators manual but has some maintenance information in there too. I'll send it to you tomorrow hopefully.

Petr,

I was able to register using my computer at work. I created an account and was able to download the manual.

Thanks so much for your help with this. It is appreciated.

My cleaning supplies came in and I jumped in to start cleaning albums . . .

Dang. My Dvorak 9th actually has a dent in it. looks like someone (probably me) dropped a pen or some other instrument on it.

but tonight I got to listen to Appalachian Spring.

thank you guys for all your help.

Also, I upgraded the cart to a conical, so far I am very pleased with it.

Hey guys,

I decided to post this here since I started my journey in this thread. There is referenced another thread on Vinyl but I havent found it.

Anyway, My MCS 6502 is not well. The bending of sound is back. Basically, after it runs for 8-10 minutes it starts phasing fast or slow just enough to bend the sound flat or sharp. To be honest I do not know if this is a transformer, electricity supply issue or if it is a motor / brush issue. There just isnt much information in the way of the MCS line.

I find myself just shopping for new TT's but I am attracted to the older ones.

I understand that my MCS was likely not engineered for 40+ years of service. It also appears it may be near the end Smile I am fine with that.

If I buy a used TT, will it be just as prone to this disposable element? I was looking at TT parts retailers and mot of it was about the cartridge (are people really building their own carts?) stylus, and belts.

I want to keep this under $500 so that is very limiting, especially with the classics. I am having fun. Just having to pump the brakes a little till I get this TT worked out. Right now I keep getting drawn to the AR XA or the Technics 1200 series.

Good to replace it ~ the MCS is not very good to begin with.

I would suggest getting a TT with a straight dynamically balanced Turn Table like Dual if you can find one.
S shaped statically balanced turntables are not as good of trackers.
True the Technics tables are very well built mechanically but the arm is inferior for fidelity, IMO.
Also match it with a good cartridge generally one that is higher compliant aka flexible for best results.
At least that is what we did when I was in the high end audio business (before computers) back-in-the-day. Eek

With the little bit of knowledge I have in this, look for a Dual if you want classic. There are people that can refurb it and have it running like new for the price range you are looking for. An older 10** or 12**, idler wheel drive is smooth as silk and the motor is quiet. Manuals are available and parts too, while some are harder than others to find. Lots of people have posted issues and fixes for most models that you can do yourself.

Thanks Petr, I just ordered a Dual 604 from a guy. It had pretty good reviews on vinyl engine, and it was a pretty good deal. Pretty excited.

Cool! Be sure he knows how to pack it for shipping. Was it refurbished, cleaned, or as is? If the price was right but needs to be worked on, there is a guy on vinylengine that can steer you in the right direction or other websites that are recommended on there too. However, if it's good to go, spin it right round!!
