You need an SP2 and a stylus with a suitable width for the records you want to play; 12, 17, 25 or 75 micron.

Hi Martin, thanks for the information. Just ordered a SP2 - so Shakin Stevens will sing this year (hopefully!).

Best regards C

Hi

I am curious about the meaning of the L in Beogram 610 VFL. Do you know?

I know the V stands for Volt in danish and Voltage in english. And that it should mean that the record-player is powered by AC(alternating current) power.

The F stands for Forforstærker in danish and means a pre-amplifier in english. The meaning here is that it is built-in.

So the L. What can it mean?

Thank you

V is for Vekselstrøm (Alternating current).
F is for Forstærker (RIAA amplifier)

If memory still serves L tells, that the deck is ready for fitting of a longer tonearm. I seem to remember that the placement of the tonearm base differs.
