This comes with gold RCA signal output plugs – ready to use when connected to your amplifier’s phono inputs. There is no acrylic cover with this.


Please note: we will not ship this deck. It is both heavy and delicate. In our experience, no matter how well packed it will almost certainly be destroyed during transit. Therefore this is for personal collection only - from CR3 5UF.

Payment accepted bank transfer, personal cheque or cash on collection/delivery
