For sale: A beautiful vintage Russco idler drive Cue Master turntable. This would make an excellent gift for the Audiophile on your Christmas list!! Russco turntables were built for use in the broadcast industry and as such were frequently used by radio stations and recording studios. Consequently they are of extremely heavy duty construction, and are built like tanks! This turntable is in very nice cosmetic condition, and spins quietly on all 3 speeds. It is ready to accept any suitable tonearm you want to install. (no arm or cartridge included). This Cue Master sits on a heavy custom CLD, (Constrained Layer Damping) anti resonant plinth. The plinth is crafted from multiple layers of plywood. And MDF The plywood has been painted gloss black, but could be easily covered with more attractive wood or veneer by the new owner. Mechanically this turntable is a marvel of over engineering! The chassis is made of heavy, ribbed cast aluminum. The platter is cast aluminum and is precision lathe turned The platter alone weighs over 6 pounds! The platter has been fitted with new Dark Bllue felt, and looks impressive! The spindle bearing is huge, being a full 3/4” in diameter, and runs in two large oilite bearings The spindle and spindle bearings have been carefully inspected and are in excellent conditon. The large, heavy duty Bodine synchronous motor spins smoothly and quietly, and brings the heavy platter up to speed quickly. THe idler wheel is still pliable and runs true. This turntable runs on standard 120 volt 60 Hz house current. This is a rare, and highly sought after piece of American broadcast industry history! These old idler drive Russco turntables feature incredible engineering, amazing quality, deliver fantastic sound, and represent exceptional value! What you see in the photo is exactly what you get.
