I've kept it in good nick and the only thing that's wrong with it is the belt has decomposed. Can any of you recommend a place to buy one. Its a kd 1033 by the way. I'm in Dublin
I take it you are using an amp with a proper 'phono' input, Peter? The AT95 is quite thin and bright, particularly after the warm and soft Ortofon. Try increasing the tracking weight to the maximum permitted as that might improve things slightly, and it may setlle in a bit after a few sides (and preferably in a warm room).Peter Macconnell said:I also have a KD1033 dating from around 1974. I had not played it for many years and in reaction to this thread I have re activated it. The stylus/cartridge/head set-up was AKG head and Ortofon F15E MkII. The cartridge is at least 30 years old and has been unused for 25 of those. On the advice of earlier posters on this thread I changed it for an Audio Technica AT95E. . My problem is that the sound doesn't seem any better and if anything it is less clear and has a good deal less 'umph'. Is that how it should be. I would describe the sound as bright but weedy. Any advice welcome.
