Default Re: Help diagnosing issues with a BSR TD2 portable

I've never seen asbestos in a machine of this age - just check for any suspicious looking pads near hot areas.

Default Re: Help diagnosing issues with a BSR TD2 portable

I had a 'Elizabethan'. tape recorder. Same BSR TD2 deck. It had instability issues that were rectified by cleaning the contacts of the wafer switches and some electrolytics.
A different type of instability to here.

Glad you solved solved the instability issue.
You can get a Soviet Reflektor ECC83 (6H3N) for a third of the price of a Mullard.
Hopefully the same difference is true of a ECC81. If one is ever needed.
