I left my Garrard 301 on for a week!!!

Postby detubo » Fri Jul 02, 2010 5:53 pm

i haven't been listening to music for a week now. after work today i went up to play some vinyl when i noticed that everything was off except for my grease bearing garrard 301. damn! it was still spinning when i got there so i hurriedly turned it off. the deck was a bit warmer that usual but besides that nothing seemed wrong. so i turned on my preamp then my amp and waited about 10 minute (started folding my laundry muna). then the moment of truth. i turned on my 301. the rotation seemed stable enough. i put on steely dan's gaucho lp. drop the needle. BAMMM!!!! beautiful music filled the room! speed was dead steady. not bad build quality for a 50 year old table. it must be true that during those times they built thing with the assumption that it has to last forever. quality like this is a rare occurrence in this day and age indeed. three cheers for the rolls royce phantom 4 of turntables! :clap: :clap: :clap:

i am not surprised that your garrard will keep running safely even if left on for a week, these ttables were built like tanks. lets hope the bearing is ok
