Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

RE: Just bought this one...

That is a Canadian RCA model. the Canadian RCA's used Garrard or Collaro
changers instead of the RCA made changers in the US models. Yours
has a Collaro.

For reliability and safety the amplifier capacitors should be replaced
and the resistors checked.

Your channel dropping out could be a number of things but in my experience when it goes out after playing awhile it indicates
a bad or dirty tube socket connection. Wiggle the tubes slightly when
it goes out and see if that restores sound. If it does, you can
clean the socket and tube pins with deoxit and possibly will need
to re-tension the offending socket or replace it.

A bad capacitor or resistor can also cause the loss of sound.
