For sale is a vintage, ultra rare SDC-10 Reference Turntable manufactured by Win Laboratories, and designed by Dr. Sao Win. From the research I have been able to do, this turntable is a rare, high-end home audio collectors item, I believe it to be from the mid 1990s. The turntable comes with the chassis, plinth, platter, shock mounts, feet, SDA-10 Servo Dynamic Tonearm, wooden tonearm box, motor, control unit, adjustment tools, cartridge hardware, and lid.
The unit is missing a belt and cartridge, however the motor functions properly at both speeds (33 and 45) and the platter rotates freely and evenly when in place. Please see the following videos here and here for reference. There is some light oxidization on the metal accent pieces (I believe this can be removed with a proper cleaning agent), as well as some scuff marks on the platter. The lucite has slight smudges and could stand to be cleaned with some lucite cleaner. The unit was stored for many years and some of the original soft foam it was stored in deteriorated, which left these smudges. Overall, the turntable is in excellent condition both operationally and cosmetically. I cannot fully test it, as I do not have a belt, cartridge, or DIN-to-rca adapter cable to test it with, but does appear to function properly mechanically. You are welcome to bring a compatible cartridge and belt if you have one, to come and test it out with!
I will be happy to shop this if a buyer wants to pay for the cost, due to its weight and delicacy. I have the original wooden shipping crate, however much of the original foam padding inside has deteriorated so it will need to be re-enforced. Please feel free to contact me with any and all questions, as well as for additional photographs of any part, if desired. I would love to see this amazing, custom made turntable be fully up and running in the hands of a deserving, passionate collector! I am asking $3,000 or best offer, I am very flexible with the price! Thank you for looking!
