My turntable (Technics SL-1600 mk1) has hardwired cables that are shot... I need to get new ones installed, or perhaps have jacks installed instead so I can use any of the extra interconnects I have lying around.

I'd love to have it set up properly as well, I have no idea how to do that. (The manual is long gone.)

Any recommendations for a reliable, reasonably-priced shop in the Philadelphia / South Jersey area? I don't play a ton of vinyl, so I don't want to spend an arm and a leg (and I don't want someone intent trying to sell me $100 cables, either).

Also, check "yellow pages" for stereo service/repair shops locally and give 'em a call.
Try the Geek Squad (at Best Buy)?

You may be able to get manual here:

No. I'd either attempt to fix it myself or buy a new turntable.
