Its sounds like you have had a ..bum deal there.. the help you are asking is a hard one to give...:yikes.... if you are series in staying with vintage Quad gear what I would do is find a Audio Tech and have him assess what is wrong & how much it would cost to correct, even if you up grade to the 949 unless it has been restored you might find that it may need to be restored latter on down the road & this is where how much are you willing to spend to stay with vintage Quad.
If you have a collection of Quad LP`s you have to way up the cost to have the pleasure to play them.
The cartridge JVC 4md 20x you are referring to is for CD-4 Quad this is a more tricky Quad format to get right and that is a hole story that you can get her on QQ.
O by the way great to have you joint QQ......
