Hi All

I am about to take ownership of a couple of 11-25s and am looking for information on the various turntables that they used in them. Apparently they have different ones installed in each set.

I found a vague service document that stated they could be
a. Garrard Type SP (or 8P due to the bad scan)
b. Garrard Type S or 8
c. Collaro Type AC504 with fixed Pick-up Head
d. Collaro Type AC504 with Plug-in Pick-up Head
e. B.S>R Motor and Goldring Magnetic Pick-Up
f. Collaro Type RP49 Magnet Pickup
g. Collaro Type RP49 Crystal pick-up

So with the wide range does someone out there have any service information on them?

Also the Difference in the circuit for the Mag v's Crystal Pickup? I have the Pages from AORSM but they don't shed much info on the differences.

Hmm...

The saga continues. I got the 2 sets today. The first one, Smashed to an inch of its life has a Garrard (Single Speed) and the other one has been badly modified and contains a Philips 4 speed with a very ordinary dual stylus tone head.

So I am after a new turntable that matches this radio, It would be good to get it to play LP's if possible.

Dan,
I hope yr Kriesler 11-25 restorations are proceeding well. I have taken delivery of my 11-25, fortunately in pretty good condition. After some research I have determined mine is version L or N.

The problem area is the turntable. It’s a Philips HX301A or similar that Kriesler put in with their own badge on it. It’s in poor condition and the tone arm is completely missing. Given the wide variety of turntables Kriesler used in the 11-25 I am not too troubled about installing another brand of the same vintage, eg. Garrard.

If you or any other forum members should have something suitable, including thr Philips model and willing to part with it, I would be very interested.

Hello Dan.
If you discard the 78rpm Garrad turntable with pickup arm I would like to buy it.
Regards Jim.

Hi Jim.

Not sure what to do with it at the moment. If I had something very similar that played 33.1/3 then id part with it But it has to be something as close in look to the original that I can get.
