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.

I know this is an old thread but for possible future needs,....check out Analog Restorations. They are located about 15 miles from you. They actually remove the RCA cables and replace them with gold RCA jacks on the rear panel. It's a lot cleaner looking and allows you to use your own interconnects. you're not forced into $100 cables that "make a huge difference".


Aside from there website, you can also check them out on Facebook at Analog Restorations.
