Victor TT 801

Hi all.
Anyone own it?
Has it ever been necessary to carry out a recap or suffered a failure and carry out the calibration or repair without a service manual available in the world?

@dover I am not interested to amp repair in Japan to do a turntable repair or maintenance ..... by my ability I know how to do it myself.
I am surprised that after having written to Amp Repair numerous times a request for find a photocopy of the service manual for a fee if luckily he had it available, he never replied even an "I’m sorry".
I was obviously wrong in believing that all Japanese people had the gift of education towards others; at that point for me he can quietly go to hell.

I very recently imported a second SP10 MkII from Japan, the shipping charged post COVID was approx' + £200 without any added taxes.

I believe these air freight rates are still rising, as Sea Cargo is severely delayed and fuel is heading to the stratosphere.

It is best to have a shipping cost worked out in advance, due the these substantial cost increases rapidly developing.


@pindac  Japan /home shipping costs have increased significantly in recent months; now everything has become anti-economic.
