I've got quite interesting cassette deck from my friend for repair. It seems not hard from the glance, but... Rotten and broken belts, noise and hum in the right channel,...
We are quite busy here at Revintages. We’ve got another turntable for a little maintenance. The new toy is Japanese semiautomatic turntable from ’80s – AKAI AP-B20. Although it is very simple and basic – this is a great, fully functional device for novice vinyl collector.
- Belt replaced
- Mechanics cleaned and lubed
- Contacts cleaned with Deoxit
- Tonearm, stylus pressure adjusted, anti-skating fine-tuned
We are not going to put it on sale for now, we have a big AKAI rack with full set of components, but missing turntable. This will be a perfect match.
Currently we make photo-sets with nice colored vinyls. Later on these sets will be available for purchase.
We’ve also prepared a short video with a overview and even some sound test, see below.
