Also, what's she called? 
 
Hey Argo
That is not my TT, just a pic off the internet. My table is called a Music Hall mmf-7.1 and she is lovely, finished in a high-gloss piano black LOL
 
Here she is...

The absence of these adjustments likely means that your TT used p-mount cartridges, which have to be of a certain type/weight (otherwise you'd never get the tracking force right). You can't adjust p-mount cartridge in any way; it's literally plug-and-play (I know, I know .. adapters).  

In a way, a fully "factory adjusted" TT may be a blessing, if you want to spend your time enjoying the music rather than tinkering with overhang, azimuth and such. I had a TT like yours, and it was just fine for the purpose.  You'll probably be OK. Audiophiles will tell you otherwise.

I though about buying new too. I saw some cool TT's from Rega and Pro-ject the other day on a local store, although I don't know much about technical details. I wouldn't sell my current TT though: too much sentimental value Smile

When ready you can sell your current TT and buy a pretty good one for about US$500 new or find a higher up Technics model used for about the same....Vintage TT like Dual, Thorens and even some Technics command some high prices online. My only problem with used TT is unless you can inspect it before purchasing, you have no idea of working condition...and shipping them is a PITA!!
 
I will always buy new for a TT....Christmas is around the corner Clap Big smile

No worries...we will get it. If your original pic is a 1.37MB size yea that is too big for almost any website. I would not even use 1MB pic, that is why I resize them to 800x600.
 
Once you do that process I detailed make sure and hit SAVE button on MS Office Picture Manager...That should do it for you.
Then you can upload to photobucket or any photo storage site...I used the PA storage/Member Control panel option but it has issues with IE browser.

I use photobucket to hold all my pictures, it creates a sharelink for websites. I save my pictures as .jpg to 800x600 using MS Office Picture Manager, then upload them to photobucket.
 
Would love to see those albums!!

I read in some forums that it's not adjustable, like this one with the same TT:
http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/archive/index.php/t-192411.html

It's strange, I can only find records and TT's for sale on local stores, and this is an essencial thing. Thanks for the link.

Check your anti-skate setting, if you have one, on your TT...you might be riding hard on one groove wall if you are hearing a lot of echo. The standard setting would be the same number as your tracking weight, but play with the AS setting.

I don't see anything about anti-skate in the service manual, and the TT says that the tracking force and anti-skate are adjusted from the factory, so I think I can't change anything about that.
I should get some outer sleeves to protect the LP, though. What sleeves do you use? Almost all my LP's had sleeves when I bought them, so I never bought sleeves.

^I know how you feel Jose. I try to research the disc as best I can by reading threads like this and blogs and then I wittle down a list of 'must have' discs. But it seems that I must have all of them! LOL
