Systemdek IIX

With Linn Tonearm

This excellent turntable is in very nice physical condition (see close-up pictures) and full & perfect working order.

The main bearing is spot-on and freshly lubricated, the motor is smooth and silent, the drive belt is fine and 33 / 45 speeds are accurate & stable. The Linn Basik LV X tonearm operates as it should, with perfect bearings and geometry.

Arm-lowering device operates smooth & slow and the anti-skate control is fine. The Nagaoka MM cartridge is fitted with a brand new replacement stylus.

3-point sprung chassis, AC synchronous motor, 10mm glass platter with heavy steel plate sub-chassis.

The last three pictures are from the 1986 ‘Hi-Fi Choice’, where this excellent turntable received its prestigious ‘Best Buy’ status.

“The Systemdek IIX surpasses any similarly priced rival and indeed, several more expensive models” (What HiFi).

“Fine results were obtained on audition. Stereo images were well focused, while good depth and midrange detail were evident. The bass was notable for its clean, even quality, showing good attack and tunefulness.” (Hi-Fi Choice 1984).
