    What type grease for tape deck?

    Thanks guy's. I reckon I've had this deck maybe a year. It looks mint. In fact every piece of hi fi gear I buy it's cosmetics first. I don't care how perfect it works. If the faceplate is a mess , it's not going in my systems. I also have a crap ton of different lubes I use in gunsmithing. Some...

    What type grease for tape deck?

    Thanks Blaze. Yes I have manuals for everything I own. I AM anal about manuals. ( Except the pile of Soundcraftsman gear)They are tough to locate. Like you say, no mention of proper lubes. I do have a fairly expensive little bottle of oil I bought from Germany called Liquid Bearings. I bought it...

    What type grease for tape deck?

    I'm going to try & freshen up a CT-f700 cassette deck in a week or so. I'd like to get my ducks in a row before diving in. I got a nice belt kit from joeradio? It came with fairly comprehensive instructions. I'm expecting to find some dried up grease in spots & would like to know what's best...

    Oh stop it! I'm 64 & scour Craigs list daily for more projects to drag home! Until they start shoveling on the dirt or pouring the ashes in the urn, I'm not giving in! and they still hot tank engines at some shops. The big money outfits have fancy machines that work like a giant sized...

    The Back to the Future Project ...

    I can't play this time around. But I would like to get into cassettes soon. Can you give me an idea what level of gear is needed for suitable recordings for this project? All I have now is a CT-F700 in need of repair. I'm about to dive in to it next week. If working properly would that be...

    Issues with last night's listening session

    No loose interconnects & they are new & decent quality.$35.00 for a 3 foot 'patch cord' is good enough for me right now. I'm not sure at what price point a patch cord becomes an interconnect? Heh...Heh (JK) The Onkyo Integra pre has a rotary input selector. As long as the tuner is powered off...

    Issues with last night's listening session

    I put on a fresh Dire Straights Lp & it seems most of the vocals & lead guitar is coming from the right speaker. I switch to another fresh Lp, David Gilmour & same thing. Left speaker is playing but weak. Still sounds good so I carry on. It's getting late, I'm tired. I won't be listening to the...

    Audio Precision ATS-1 Audio Analyzer Works/Great Condition $1600

    You are going to get my money one way or another. The AP is WAY above my level. I have a habit of buying things I think are cool, regardless if I'm capable of utilizing. Like the four electric guitars hanging on the wall & the Marshall amp. Can't play a lick. But if I wake up one day with new...

    what are you listening to?

    I still have a scar the shape of a spoon around my mouth. I slipped while 'spooning' some black tar opium in 1973. Heh..Heh. I've used many excuses over the years!

    what are you listening to?

    Good Set. I generally avoid live performance albums, but this set is nicely done. I doubt Mr. Gilmour would have it any other way.

    GroovyKool 45 adapter!

    Not long ago my wife had Cher on TV, lamenting life as a Rock Star.( Huh?) To borrow Perry's term. Lot's of those types in there.

    GroovyKool 45 adapter!

    I was never interested because it at least 'seem's' like the majority of inductee's have little to no connection to Rock & Roll music. Which is a subjective term to me anyhow. Anyone who performed on a stage in the sixties or seventies now claim to be former rock stars it seems.

    Question on the AP-ATS1 analyzer.

    Cool. I was wondering if there was a minimum voltage input I guess.

    Question on the AP-ATS1 analyzer.

    Can it be used to check turntables/ cartridges for distortion?
