        JC must work on the same principle my Manley Chinook does, the unit is off but my light is still on. When the Manley is on, the Manley Label lights up. Drove me nut for a while thinking the phono stage was broke. They call it sleep-mode.

      It was a broadcast turntable. Its native phono electronics and line driver sit in the enclosure above on the right. The other 2 boards are the control electronics. The units own audio electronics are bypassed The unit that is switched on is a mono phono stage that a friend built for me.It runs to a separate mains outlet and is permanently on. South African convention is toggle down is on.

      A pat on the back for anyone who can identify the donor enclosure for the phono stage.

          At various times, I've owned:

          - Thorens TD 160
          - Thorens TD165
          - Rega P3
          - Linn LP12 Valhalla (currently own, dead PS)
          - Audio Note TT One, TT Two
          - Voyd the Voyd (currently own - dead PS)
          - Dunlop Clark Systemdek IIX (currently own)

          Currently in my crosshairs: a Garrard 301 or Thorens TD 124, restored, upgraded, planted in a gorgeous figured wood 2 arm plinth.

            These three are hooked up now. In back collecting dust is a Dual 1019 and Garrard SL Lab 95b. Soon to join the family is a Thorens TD145. Past turntables include Dual 1219, 1229, 1225, Thorens TD160, AR-XA and others I can't think of.

                I purchased this Micro Seiki DD-40 direct drive turntable with the Micro Seiki m505a tone arm in 1980. I mounted a Signet TK9ea moving magnet cartridge on the tonearm and it remained set up like that for many years of listening enjoyment. I eventually mounted an Ortofon 2M Black moving magnet cartridge on it for about a year, and now have an Ortofon Cadenza Blue moving coil cartridge mounted on the tonearm. The m505a tonearm allows VTA, tracking force, and anti-skate to be adjusted on the fly. The turntable is now 38 years old, still in service in my living room system, and continues to perform flawlessly.
