Default Wanted Citronic Hawaii Garrard cartridge slides.

Hi all.

I'm in the process of restoring some old Citronic Hawaii turntables and looking for 2 cartridges slides, with or without carts.

What carts styli would you recommend?

Back in the day I used Ortofon OM Pro carts in mine, Stanton 500s would also be appropriate, or maybe Shure V35s.

Hi. Which model decks do you have ?
The early Hawaii had Garrard SP25 MKIV's then the later ones SP25 MKV's and then MKVI's.
So Garrard C2 carriers for the MKIV and C5 carriers for the MKV and VI.

Originally they would have used Shure M75/6 carts but most got upgraded to Stanton 500 AL's as they are much more robust.

David.

Hey, I forgot the disco drivers. But yes that's the C5 carrier.
Is it a Hawaii MKIII then with the 330 mixer ?

David.

No the Hawaii series was not powered.
That must have been one of the last MKII's as the Disco Driver came out around 1979 IIRC.
So your's has the 506-2 mixer ?

Incase you aren't aware of it, this is a great source of info on CitroniC consoles and some of the guys have a facebook group aswell :-https://forum.speakerplans.com/citronic-consoles-mixers-and-amps_topic33734.html

Argh ok , only one Phono output which seems strange and how heavy it is suspected an amp in there , I'm not reached up on these these things just a vinyl addict and do who loves the 70's style in teak.
So I need a stereo Phono lead that splits into two jacks to an amp ?

I'll just try that again as that link doesn't seem to work. (or didn't display correctly in Edit mode ?)
https://forum.speakerplans.com/citro...opic33734.html

It's a stereo 6.3 or 1/4 inch jack for the line output. There is one on the mixer labelled Slave out and one hidden on the right hand side near the front.
The reason they are heavy is because the base is made of steel and the mixer is clad in steel too. In my opinion they are one of the best looking Citronic's with that low level style. I have a MK 1 here.
