A Look Inside a BAL-AMi I200M Jukebox
Here's some of the
bits hidden from view inside an I200M.
First, the record carousel.
This is a rear view which shows where all the records are stored when not
being played. Each has its own slot. You'd expect the records to fall out
when they reach the upside down stage as the carousel turns, but there's
a rubber belt stretched around the lower half of the carousel which holds
'em all in! Clever eh?
Then there's the amp.
This is the thing that sits between the stylus/cartridge on the record
and the loudspeakers. This is a Beam-Echo amp as fitted to British machines.
Haven't a clue how these things work, but they sound great.
This next shot shows
some capacitors which I'm reliably informed are some sort of crossover
switches which split the upper and lower frequency sounds to the relevant
loudspeakers. These sit between the amp and the loudspeakers.
Lastly, we have the
two loudspeakers. Nuff said.
