"Let's Keep Those Turntables Spinning Smoothly and at Proper Speed"

The phono idler is a major factor in the proper function and operation of the turntable in your record changer. After a period of time the rubber either becomes "hardened and glazed" or a "dimple" appears on the outer edge of the idler which prevents proper RPM of your turntable and the proper change cycle (which is the rejection, dropping, of the records) from the spindle.

Go to the Tech Tips page to see how to check your idler.
