I recently bought this gem from Josh the P.A. man. I ran it plugged in through a 60watt incandescent globe and after five minutes the amplifier started amplifying. After cleaning and greasing/ oiling the Garrard RC70A record changer, I listened to a stack of Jazz 78's, sounding great, however the two little belts for 33 and 45 rpm are long gone, apparently the same as the RC80, so on order from the states... The radio however is NVG atm, so all shut down for now until my new caps arrive from EVATCO, when I'll re-cord and re-cap, check resistors etc.
Until then, does anybody have a schematic?
Cheers, Jamie.

Kev Chant is usually the best place to start, followed by Radiomuseum:

Thank you GTC! That's it! I looked on Radio Museum, but not KC! Stuart Irwin did the Radio Museum page!

Stuart's done a ton of those pages. He's a champ.
