    The PL version was the 8000 Series II, it had a gray deck and a brushed aluminum headshell.

    Starting to worry- I started the night with the Soft Cell album. The cycle passed (tonearm traveled to the record edge and lowered the point) but for some reason the arm wouldn't track. Grabbing the finger lift would not make the linear motor work, the jog wheel wouldn't move the arm. Start/Stop worked fine- arm to edge and drop, lift arm and return home- both worked correctly. I cycled the power, still didn't work. I played the Dual 1229Q for two records, then tried the Pioneer again, and it worked perfectly. Maybe a bug crawled into the tracking sensor? This sucker can't be fixed without an oscilloscope, guess it's time to get one and hope that I can get the now obsolete ICs to refurbish it.

    Mark, my good friend and old roommate Dale, has one. He was in the Navy. IIRC, bought at the PX in the UK when new, maybe you guys can chat about things. I know he's had issues with it, the sensor and the switch. They Do Not Like to be moved. He is an EE and now works the overnight shift for the USPS. I'll see if I can PM you his email and you guys see how that works. His is not working last time I talked to him.

    Side 2: Turn up the volume (especially at track 2), culminates with the infamous "Sex Dwarf"

    Okay, I reset Firefox on my 32 bit machine in here and that seems to have helped some. It was crashing more than the stock market for a while.

    It's SoCal stoner rock. You have to be in the mood for it. Not quite as good as the Nebula records I discovered a few years back, but not bad either. The Alex Lifeson featured track peels paint

    1989's The Creatures ~ Boomerang, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boomer...eatures_album)

    Every song is different in style and sound, the recording is one of the best SQ wise, especially on the slabs , hard to pick a fav...so I just jam the shit outta the whole disc ...my new pain meds are very enhancing of this uber cool classic.
