Pioneer PL71 for sale - interest check.

Unread post by Alfi » Mon Apr 09, 2018 9:28 pm

I'll be putting my PL71 up for sale because I have far too much stuff here. I imported it from the US a few years ago converted it to 240 V and the plinth was rather tired so I stained and Danish oiled it to rejuvenate it. New microswitches were fitted, PS caps renewed and all pots cleaned with Servisol contact cleaner, once warmed up she keeps good speed accuracy. If anyone is interested I can email them pictures but I have no photo hosting capability just now for posting forum pictures.

Bad point: the control panel "chrome" is worn in places.

Good points...
The lid is perfectly in tact but could benefit from a polish to remove light scratches.
Arm and standard Pioneer head shell are pristine.
Platter is pristine as is the rubber mat with centre ally ring and pioneer overhang gauge/45RPM adaptor.

Looking for £325 plus shipping but ideally would prefer collection.

Hi Alfi,

yes, I'm interested if you would ship it to Germany via UPS. I don't think I need photos as the description is very detailed and I don't care about cosmetic matters as long as it runs fine.

Hello Hannes.

Thanks for you interest in the PL71, I shall look into it, cost etc but I'm concerned about it getting damaged.

Hello Alfi,

thank you for doing that. If it's well packed and the lid, platter and the weights are separated, the arm fixed with a piece of cord, shipping, especially with UPS, should be no problem. The Pioneer I offer in another thread was shipped to me, too, and arrived without any damages. If you'd decide to do so I'd be very glad. Would a payment via paypal gift be fine for you?

Cheers,

Hannes

You could add some for the proper packing on the price, too.

Yes an thank you Hannes, PP gift will be fine when I'm ready, but first I have to find two boxes so that one will fit inside the other.

That's nice to hear, thank you! Take your time, it's not that I have to live without music in the meantime.
