Hey guys, I just bought a used (but in very good condition) Gemini XL-BD10 for $5 last weekend and I was wondering if anyone has any specifics I may want to know about it and the unit's age? It has no date labeled.

I'm a relative vinyl virgin (actually have a bunch of LPs, yet no turntable until now) but I figured I might as well have an entry level toy to play with and see where it leads. It seems identical to their recently re-introduced XL-120 MK2. I have a new cartridge, headshell, phono preamp, and slipmats coming in the mail. I cleaned the unit, calibrated the RPM speeds, found a good vibration-dampened spot to put it, and snugged all the screws. Any more "starter" tips would be greatly appreciated.

Also I wanted to thank you guys for the thread below. It was informative :-)

My Gemini has the same M-22 cartridge.

I got my Gemini XL-BD10 in 1990 and I'm still using it. The strobe RPM calibration failed within a few weeks, but I find that counting the Revs and measuring time with a watch works fine.
