As some of you are aware, I have an old Sony Midi system complete with turn tables.
In recent years, the only thing I’ve used the main boxy bit for, is to provide 12V to drive the turntable. I’d like to feed it from something a bit more compact. But as usual, have zero budget.
I’ve taken the bottom of the turntable and discovered It has a 9 point Something volt motor (it also has an auto Arm liftty and Putty away mechanism).
I checked the power out from the big box, and it’s a little over 12 V. I had a dig in my PSU box and the nearest I’ve got claims to be 13.1 V.
Does the team think that’s near enough? Or do I need to get I? ?d down? If so, could I get away with adding a diode (and resistor (valu e?)?) in series?
If not, could I add a 12V regulator? Or would I need more than 13V to feed the regulator?
