Is the kit suitable for my turntable
Is it worth replacing the motor drive or purchasing a new turntable?
The answer to this question depends on the value and performance of your deck. Many many modern decks are no better than older designs and a modern budget deck will not outperform a reputable elderly mid-market deck. Having said this there are a very small handfull of turntables (our own included) which will far surpass older designs. These generaly start at the £1300 price point.
Can I not just replace the motor or power supply alone?
At first this may seem the most cost effective and simple way to get your deck working again. However there are a number of unseen pitfalls with this approach and these are expalined on the link – Replacing a noisy / faulty turntable motor or power supply
Should I get the Motor or Power Supply repaired by the manufacturer?
If you have a midmarket deck or above, it’s highly likely that a repair to your drive system will cost more than our motor kit. Not only this but the opportunity to vastly improve the performance of your deck will be lost. This is explained fully if you visit the link Replacing a noisy / faulty turntable motor or power supply
