Vintage Idler Drive Turntable

A rare find indeed, this vintage idler drive deck is in very nice condition, tested and in full & flawless working order. Mechanism operates as it should, 33 & 45 speeds accurate and stable and the arm lowering device operates smooth and slow.

This is fitted with a good quality Ortofon M10 MM cartridge. The stylus is broken but we’re leaving the body fitted to the headshell in case the new owner wishes to fit a new stylus (available via eBay at around £30). Alternatively, remove the Ortofon body and fit a cartridge of your choice.
