I'll take it.

ps. It's an ortofon rs 212, and it's worth at least a few hundred dollars.

so, I'll take it providing you still want to give it away.

well it does not have a lifter mechanism or anything, and there is a threaded hole in the back with nothing in it.

you probably have to do some tinkering.

Screw it im gonna send it to you anyways someone on a different forum sent me a free Pulsar 1 board to replace a broken one so im paying it forward.

all i request is that you are going to use it and not put it on ebay.

D to the g is absolutely correct that this arm is an Ortofon RS-212, guess you did not look hard enough - then again without knowing how could you find out?

Anyway here is a link that will put any doubt to rest:
http://www.vinylengine.com/library/ortofon/rs-212.shtml

You will find a link to the manual on the above page. Direct links to it will not work.

I'd offer to D to the G before anyone else and in consideration of the favor he did for you by telling you. It was a pretty nice thing to do, although I suspect he would have been outed soon enough.

I've replied.

This is pretty amazing, and no it will not be going on ebay. It will be settling down on my hobbled together SP 10 (panasonic mk I version). Pics will be posted!

Well i hope you are good at tinkering, i have no idea if the internal wiring is still good, and it has no headshell, and maybe a part missing from the back (optional?) it seems the lifter was optional as well because this one has a plug where the lifter would be.

I seem to remeber that around the time when this was made, ortofon had cartridge that plugged directly in the headhell connector, so its probably a standard one.

cant wait to see it get a new life!
