    No worries Looks like id have to send mine back to ortofon to get a new engine etc for about 800 if I wanted to get it working again. Pricey but would be a new cart in the old body basically.

    Picked up a Kb to tide me over whilst the Cadenza Bronze was getting a sapphire cantilever and Paratrace with Wyndham... It returns tomorrow and I was going to move the Kb on but I will investigate other options from what I've read here... Food for thought and all that...

    mine has arrived at holistic audio,the report is this,

    The tip does need to be replaced, the suspension is in working order (no direct need for replacement), there are quite a few metal-particles that are magnetically 'sucked' into the front poleplate opening and they all need to be manually removed as they can interfere with the bobine (coil assembly).
    The alignment of the generator is slightly off so that needs to be re-aligned.

    and the best bit is i thought it sounded good in that condition,im in for a treat when it comes back!

    I've been using noisy/rumbling decks for a while (Garrard's/Lenco's) the Sony TTS8000 (and SP10) are a different league altogether. Even though I've gone to extraordinary lengths with the plinth build (Beech multiplex + Bentonite resin) I reckon you put put TTS in a cardboard box and still get less motor noise than the average Garrard !

    You pretty much summarise my thoughts when I heard your own Garrard - welcome in to the light.
