Hey guys, been a while so thought I’d offer an update of sorts. So, about 2 months ago I had the chance( and took it) to buy a functioning and pristine condition Pioneer PL-570 for pretty much a song and dance! I have re capped it, opened up the dreaded gear box to clean out the old grease, re greased, than put her on the scope to bring her back to spec...... what a magical piece of equipment, showing off just how advanced technology was some 40 years ago!!! At the moment I am awaiting a Goldring 2400 to mount later this week!! I had purchased a Kenwood KD 990 ( also for a fairly good price), but in the long run was not as enamoured with it as I was with the 570, the good news is I made enough from the sale of the 990 to outright pay for the new Goldring, pretty happy about that!!! Pics to follow once I have the Goldring mounted!!
