Thanks Ian. It doesn't feel quick. I can't wait to have the painting finished and the deck back in operation.

Had a look at them. They seem to provide no vertical isolation. As such, a stiff platform suspended by three elastic bands would probably be more effective at isolation.

My improvised squash ball feet provide good absorption and isolation in three axes, not just two. They also exhibit something close to critical damping, whereas the Rollerblocks look underdamped and inclined to horizontal resonance.

Look, I hear you, but bear this in mind: any part sold will very likely go to a loving home and meet lots of other interesting equipment. None of this kit, perhaps with the exception of the transformers, is particularly rare, so there's no harm in any of it starting a new life in a new system which may continue to give daily pleasure for another fifty years. It's better that the kit is restored, maintained and used regularly by enthusiasts rather than sitting there gathering dust in original but fossilised state. When I found it, the gear was together, but moribund and in some danger. It's best chance of survival is if each part goes where it is most valued.

Lovely!

That's the 1963 model. Same year as this deck.

...or better still, one of these:



And when I listen to the Beach Boys I dream of heading for the coast in one of these:

No shortage of British pale blue and white from that era:

It will sell well in Germany but I think you should hold on the blue fin thing.

I've been listening to the pale blue 301 for several days now, and it absolutely rocks. Punchy driving bass is the key. I didn't think I would enjoy the deck this much. I've got a new Shure M97Xe on the SME 3009, which I've thoroughly cleaned and serviced. The SME looks almost brand new now, and there's no play, with all movements very smooth. In the balanced position it responds to the slightest puff of breath in all directions. In the morning I just can't wait to get back to the man cave and twist those great clunky levers to start a day of non-stop vinyl bliss.

The other Jorgen Schous are up on a well-known auction site in case anyone is interested. I expect they'll go for less than the last pair.
