1950`s braun record player

I have recently acquired a Braun PC3 sv in mint condition, I know this is not high end equipment but would be interested to know if its worth using or just leave it to gather dust.

I read somewhere that it would be a bad idea to use one to play modern records on, it would damage the vinyl as it will be intended for use with mono vinyl recordings? I have never used vinyl so I know very little about the format, is this true?

Its my wife who has the records, mostly 60s and 70s stuff.

Any advice would be very welcome, cheers.

PC3 Sv

Hi, I remember hearing that comments 40 years ago from my brother when I was using a toy LP reader box. I do not know about the Braun Turntable but I would assume that using a good saphir would not affect the Lps.

I just bought one as well and was wondering if you could help me understand how I could plug it to an amplifier. What settings do you use? 

Thanks for letting me know.

Regards;

Rudolf

Hi Rudolf, I have not yet

Hi Rudolf,

I have not yet used the player, currently I have a roksan k2 power amp which does not have a phono preamp, I assume it will need one? The specifications are not readily available for a record player this old...

 

I fear that it will be too much effort to get it working nicely so I will probably sell it on.

Thanks for your reply.

Stuart
