With Shure Cartridge

Fitted with a good quality Shure M75E MM cartridge (fitted with a brand new stylus), this vintage belt-drive turntable is in full working order and nice physical condition (see close-up pictures). The motor is smooth and quiet, main bearing is fine, arm bearings and geometry are all spot-on and 33 & 45 speeds are accurate & stable. Ready to plug-and-play when connected to the MM phono input of your amplifier. There is one little blemish on the acrylic cover but no cracks or chips. This little blemish is reflected in the price.
