Pioneer PL71 Feet Help

Unread post by Stemcor1990 » Sat Jan 20, 2018 1:10 pm

My PL71 has non standard feet.

I know it’s a long shot but does anybody has some feet they wish to sell or could advise the diameter, height and screw thread size of the original feet. There’s a guy in the US who has 2 feet available so I halfway there. I don’t mind a mix and match with the feet so long as they are all the same size. I can’t find the information on the web.

These look good, and glue them in place.

I have bought a set to use on my PL12AC.

From my memory they look the same but I am not certain. I remember springs though.

You are correct Doc. The PL71's standard feet are three piece and include springs within.

Many thanks for the very quick replies.

I’m tempted to buy the 2 PL71 feet and then try to get something of a similar size unless somebody has a better suggestion......

2 PL71 feet ordered from the US via eBay. I’ll try to post some photos when they arrive.

Doc, I don’t suppose you remember what you did with the original feet.......

Jayman, I’ll measure the feet when they arrive and if they are the same size as the plc-1700 then I’ll ask you what you want for them. The PL71 feet do have springs.

Jamie, they are identical to my Toshiba's feet. The rubber part tears very easily when screwing them into the plinth.
