SOLD - Technics SP-10 MK 2 turntable, SH-10 EP power supply and MP1 18 BBC tonearm - eBAY auction
Please be aware that I have four more Technics SP-10 Ex BBC turntables, seven power supplies, but only two others with a BBC tonearm. If you are interested in any of these please contact me using the details on this website.
This is an ex-BBC Technics SP-10 MK 2 turntable with its original BBC MP1 18 tonearm, large SH-10 EP power supply and separate panel with on/off controls, arm lift and speed controls. All were bought from the BBC and re-installed in a hospital radio station some years ago, before that shut and it was all removed and put in proper dry storage.
I have connected everything up and the turntable starts instantly, and runs smoothly at all speeds according to the inbuilt strobe (which is correctly illuminated.
I have not tested the tonearm in any way. There is a cartridge in place, but no stylus.
Points to be aware of include the black cover panel over where the original SP-10 on-off switch and speed controls should be on the plinth. I believe these were always removed on BBC decks, but have not inspected this one to find out. Also please be aware that these BBC decks are designed specifically to run with the larger power supply and will not run with the more common smaller power supply unit without significant rewiring.
Condition of the plinth is really pretty good, with only a very small amount of aluminium corrosion under the surface lacquer in one or two small places. This is a big problem on many SP-10s.
The photographs show the actual item being sold and there are more on my website. I use a studio to show the items in as much detail as possible.
