Direct Drive Heavyweight - SME Ready

In excellent condition and full & perfect working order, this high spec vintage turntable was the flagship motor-unit of its era.

This is very heavy and you would be excused for assuming it has a marble or granite plinth. Although it’s very heavy, it’s actually made from dense stone composite.

The motor is smooth and quiet, main bearing is fine and freshly lubricated, 33 & 45 speeds are accurate & stable, strobe bulb is good and both 33 & 45 pitch controls operate as they should.

So, here is a high quality, high spec vintage turntable, ready for use with any 9 inch tonearm with a standard SME type bed-plate fitting.
