Kenwood L-07D Turntable 6

Information on this turntable can be found simply everywhere including http://www.l-07d.com/ and there is an active forum at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/KenwoodL-07D/

There is the odd scratch from normal use and along the very front edge, you could touch these up with a fine paintbrush and some grey paint.  But I like it as it is, original, used and ready to rock and roll!

 

 

Kenwood L-07D tonearm review 2

 

 

 

http://www.l-07d.com/tonearm.htm

The tonearm base is a massive 3 kg structure that contains a Vernier-type geared mechanism to adjust Vertical Tracking Angle (VTA.)  A four jaw Collet chuck, similar to the type used on drills, rigidly secures the tonearm to the tonearm base.  The chuck is opened to adjust VTA and locked once VTA is adjusted.

 

 

Kenwood L-07D tonearm review

 

 

VTA can be adjusted “on-the-fly”, while listening to the record.  A calibrated rod and arrow mechanism is used as a reference to record VTA setting.  This is a useful feature when using multiple cartridge/headshell combinations.  The E.I.A. standard headshell collar allows use of any removable headshell with the L-07D tonearm.  The tonearm itself uses resonance-canceling composite design.

The tonearm tube is made from aluminum covered with layers of carbon and boron.  Tonearm bearings are oversize hardened roller bearings with no play.  The headshell is made from seven layers of carbon and boron.  Litz wiring is used in the tonearm and headshell.  The tonearm cable is massive and has a screw on collar that secures the DIN connector to the tonearm.  RCA male ends are heavily gold plated.

The anti-skate mechanism uses a weight and string mechanism with no springs to wear out.  Tonearm cueing is hydraulically damped.  The tonearm itself is not damped.  Tonearm effective mass is rather high at 17g. and will therefore be better suited to medium (between 10-µ/mN and 20-µ/mN) and low (less than 10-µ/mN) compliance cartridges…..see more
