Hi All,
A friend reports the following problems with her Rega Planar 2:
-Once the turntable is turned on, it plays perfectly for about 20-40 minutes max
-After that time, the turntable will intermittently loose speed for about 2-3 seconds, and then it will come back up to speed
-This pattern continues and becomes more frequent (although completely random) the longer the turntable is on. But it always seems to come up to speed in the intervening periods.
-At it's worst, the intervals between the slowdowns come about every 30 seconds.

It's a Rega Planar 2, around 15-20 years old

I havn't seen it and it sounds like the motor is knackered but has anyone else experienced it? If it is the motor where's the best place to get spares?
