MITSUBISHI MC 8000

After purchasing a damaged mc 8000 I decided to separate the turntable from the rest unit .
The most difficult was to make a new plinth. I tried to copy the lt5's…
The electronic part of the unit was also totally damaged .All the photodiodes were burnt out
and the light bulbs also. A new transformer was added in replacement of a huge old one. Adjustment of
the tonearm was the last stage .This is a custom version of Mitsubishi MC8000
