  1. You’re a gentleman & a scholar Andy. I had assumed the sheath & heat shrink would need to be removed and replaced, so that is fine. And no dramas if you’d have to replace the ground wire for a longer one. I am in absolutely no rush at all, so please don’t put yourself out to get it done. Absolute PINA I tell you, although I’m not sure I want the ground hanging out the top of my deck haha Maybe I should look at one of your famous phono stages I see everyone talking about on here to make it worth your while…
  2. Hey @andyr, Thanks so much for the reply, and offer to help! Let me run through your questions below: 1. The cable is 1.5m long. Probably a tab overkill, but didn't want to be short. 2. The cable goes up a tube at the base of the tonearm which pushes the arm angle up/down. The right-angle plug on the current cable hits the base of that tube, thus restricting the ability to raise the arm up any further than a touch above horizontal. 3. I was surprised as well. I have added some pictures for you: 1. Cannot tell if they join once going back into the black sheath. What is exposed is separate. 2. Unsure without pulling off the sheath 3. The earth wire is completely separate My assumption from the quick research I have done is the ground should be soldiered to the middle pin and the two RCAs occupy each of the two pins either side? Thanks again!
  3. Hoping to tap into the expertise on here to help a very much skills-lite member with re-terminating a tonearm cable. When I say re-terminating, it is hardly re-terminating, its more like soldier a ground wire in the correct position. Which, I sure is a very very very very basic thing to do, but not something I would have the knowhow to attempt. Story goes; I bought a new western electric tonearm cable off Bill to use with my Jelco 850S/Garrott Brothers Optim FGS combo (the GB cart likes to be toe up, so needed a straight DIN connector rather than the right-angle I currently have) on my Thorens TD125. Bill made and sent it to me with a separate ground wire, however I need to ground the arm, so need the ground connected to the middle pin on the 5-pin DIN connector. Tried to sell the cable to someone who could use it in the current state, but not getting any takers. So instead of putting it in a drawer, thought I would see if someone on here was able to soldier it up and re-jacket it once completed? Someone in Melbourne would be great so I can drop off and pick up/wait the 30 seconds it probably takes to get it done. Obviously I am happy to pay for the materials and time, plus pop a donation in the SNA bucket.
