Thank you! I've enjoyed looking at that thread, there's a great variety of music being consumed here, and as @maverick said it's the music that counts. But, @CnoEvil, I'm happy to argue about cab

Oops! I guess I should have posted here before diving in feet first and creating a thread that laid bare my no0bness for all to see. I registered on the AVS forums at the same time as this one bu

That’s a very healthy budget and I’m sure you will be inundated with ideas. 

All of which will be over £10k if I know this lot

Hi,

I have been lurker here for a while and a member of a couple of other audio forums. I would like to introduce myself.

 

I have had a passion for tape recording, especially cassette decks, since I was a kid in the 1970s. This led to me working as a maintenance engineer in a top London recording studio for a while in the 1980s. Although I didn't appreciate it at the time, this was a time when some of the best analogue recordings were being made.
Like most folk, I got duped into thinking CDs were the best thing since sliced bread, for 30 years, until I bought a dead Revox B710 in 2012 and nursed it back to health. I quickly discovered that a well produced and analogue mastered pre-recorded cassette is a noticeably superior medium to CD.

I gave a couple of presentations at the Loughborough Recorded Music Society, on cassettes, using the Revox but I decided to buy a Sony WM-D6 Professional Walkman for this purpose as the Revox is heavy and not easy to move.

After a few weeks the speed control on the D6 failed and it started running fast. I found that this is quite a common problem on the D6 and set about finding out how to repair the potted CP602 motor control module. I have posted my repair method on two of the specialist tape forums and other members have used my method to repair their D6s.

I started repairing walkmans, especially the Sony Professional Walkmans, as a hobby, however, with the recent resurgence of interest in cassettes and Walkmans, the demand for servicing and repair work on the original 1980s machines has increased to the point that I am now working on them full time.


I am now of the age where the equipment which was new and cutting edge when I was working in the studio is now considered vintage.
It's great to see that there are plenty of others with a similar passion for vintage audio gear.

 

I attended the Kegworth show last year and was impressed with the standard and, thus, inspired to want to exhibit this year.

Hi Deb64 - trying many ways to get in contact with you regarding Sony D6C servicing / repair :) Are you able to contact me via email please? Many thanks - Graeme (graemecrompton@hotmail.com)

Hello,

Im Alec, not new here, but strayed for a while into other forums, specifically ROON, but felt the urge to look to the WAM, where other Turntable fanciers may lurk.

I stream to inform myself what to buy, though I do get side tracked by the ease, my main love is vinyl.

I have added a picture of my current setup, as I know most of us are driven visually.

Happy spinning.
