:grin: DSJR thanks for your advice. Played some records tonight and realised that when the arm is luffed from anywhere other than the end of the disc, it rides up vertically so I’m really not bothered.

I did play some records from the start to the end of the side which is how I noticed the “problem” - gives an idea of how much I like the 71

Pioneer knew everything they needed to know about building good turntables by the early 70's. Everything that came after that was either downhill (PL12D and PL112) at the behest of their slurping distributors wanting to cash in. Or guilding the lily to try and get the last nnnnththh at great expense, or just changes sideways for marketing purposes.
Anyone got any experience of the PL-61?

There’s a PL1400 for sale on eBay. It’s in Japan so 110 volts. Perhaps is a Japan only product but lols similar to a PL71.

100V version for Japanese home market. 2 other differences, clear lid and rubber mat .

Possible to swop out tranny for Pl71 or PL55 one? Gonna be costly though with carriage and import duty. Glad I got my PL71 years ago
