Default Dynatron GR8.

just aquired this player with a few faults,firstly very distorted,as well as that all controls noisy and lastly intermittant volume ,well on inspection distortion wes due to one of the deck securing clips had fallen of and was sitting on the smoothing cap ,how it didnt go bang is a mystery to me ,intermittant volume was down to dirty valve pins ,i then cleaned the volume/bass/treble controls and it sounds great with no hum at all ,only thing wrong is it appears to have the wrong cart fitted ,its a x5m ,sounds amazing even so,by the way a payed a fiver for it, success i recon

The BSR X5M will be an ideal match to the amplifier.
