NAD 5120

Nice Budget Turntable

A unique belt drive deck in nice condition, full working order and fitted with a good quality Ortofon MM cartridge and brand new stylus.

If you wish to use more than one phono pickup cartridge in the NAD 5120 turntable, you can purchase extra plug-in tonearms. On each arm you can set balance, VTF and DVA (dynamic vibration absorber) frequency and damping. Then you may quickly swap cartridges by unplugging one arm and plugging in another, with no readjustment needed (except perhaps for anti-skating and cueing height).

On the 5120 the counterweight is not mounted rigidly to the tonearm but rather suspended on a spring, forming a compliant assembly that is free to vibrate. When correctly tuned its vibration matches and cancels the fundamental arm/cartridge resonance.
