Hello Everyone, I would like to start off by saying that I love listening to my old records on my old record players. I spend hours with them on. Yesterday it was Frankie on my Saba console. Today I feel like the 50's and 60's on any one of my 45-EY players. Who knows what I'll relax and listen to tomorrow. I'm not a repair guy, but all that I have, excluding the Saba, I refurbished the amps, changers and cabinets. With a lot of trial and error, and if I say so myself, I think all of them look and work pretty great. I learned how by visiting this site alot. I like listening much more than working on them. Because of my limited electronic knowledge and lack of time (three little kiddies), I'm stuck. I'm hoping to find someone who rebuilds simple RCA rp amps. I have two that need repair: The first one is for an RCA 6-HF-5. I replaced all of the caps but it has an annoying, semi loud, hum. The music can still be heard, but the hum is a bit too loud when listening at a normal level. The other is for an RCA 3-HES-5. I replaced the caps and all, but when reinstalling the tubes I found that the tube sockets are cracked and need to be replaced. I don't have the time to work on these anymore. Both rp's and the cabinets are done, they are just waiting for their amps to be reinstalled, so, if you, or you know someone who could/would help me, please let me know. I would like to send them out ASAP. Thank You, Dave.
You are in luck, there is a great repair tech (not me) in Philadelphia. The cracked sockets are a tough repair so be prepared to spend for that one. I am sure you can figure out who to PM or maybe he will PM you.
