Wanted: RP-205 Record Changer
« on: May 04, 2017, 11:17:21 PM »
I am looking for a decent RP-205 changer like the one in the photo.  This one has a problem with the motorboard that I tried to repair with JB Weld unsuccesfully.  Thanks!

I believe that is a slightly earlier RP-198 record changer.

You are right.  It is a 198.  The 205s have a 45rpm spindle well and a different tone arm.  The 198 is a three speed changer, and the 205s are four speeds. Underneath, they are identical, however.
