Not your father''s Lenco, This L 75 has been completely upgraded and modded for maximum performance. It comes with or without a Morch DP 8 Ansiotropic arm. If you just want the turntable ill remove the arm and the table alone is $1200 and the arm is $3100 (new retail is $5000 on the arm alone). I choose to offer this turntable with the option of no arm rather than put a cheap one on it just to move it. It is a fine machine and deserves the best you can afford. No cartridge included. Shipping will be actual from 22902. Local pick up welcome and encouraged
This Lenco L75 project was a labor of love. I have always wanted to hear one of these tables and finally got the chance due to a trade. I went all out on this table thinking that I would keep it as my reference, and it does deserve that position... but due to medical bills I will make one for myself later.
What makes this table so special is all that was done to it. The guys over at LencoHeaven are L75/78 nuts and since I posted the build over there, I was able to get some advice on a table I was not familiar with. Here is the link to that post, there even is a video at the end so you can see it working.
Here is a list of the upgrades: the motor was disassembled and lubricated, a new ceramic bearing was installed, the motor was damped, the bottom of the deck was damped, the top of the deck was damped, the deck was grounded with a new cable. The plinth is birch plywood with a layer of MDF in the middle, it has 3/8" bocote wood surrounding the plinth and on the armboard, the bottom is solid oak. The deck was stripped and painted, it was then polished. The platter has special damping & a heavy vintage platter mat; the "Mat SE 22" which I rated very highly in my "Platter Mat Shoutout" over on the Vinyl Engine. The cable is one that came on one of my SP-10's, it is the Spectral/MIT MI 500 which are VERY musical and a perfect match for this arm. (comes with OL box & stock weight as it is only about 6mo old)
What was the result of all of this hard work? It is one of the best sounding turntables I have encountered anywhere at any price! I hate to part with it, but have so many tables in the queue
