Success! Technics SL1200 Repair…

After our recent move, the left channel went out on the Technics SL1200 turntable, after some quick troubleshooting, I determined that it was the RCA cable – hardly ever seen that happen before since the cables were well insulated and tied down to the PC board, what could cause it to break?! Anyway, it did, so I had to take the darn table apart to get to the wires below the deck, after replacing it with a pair of vintage Nakamichi RCA cables, the deck was all good to go, whew… This saved me the trouble of replacing the tonearm wire which I initially thought was broken, that would have been expensive and a PITA to do.
