Fair hard to find model.
Direct Drive - with sought after heavy "Fake Rock" base. Man made granite. Very heavy - 25 lbs aprox. And not a gimick - really does help these tables sound good, plus resistant to footfalls. My KD-2055 belt drive with same base also punches above its class for sound.
Also have a KD-2055 for sale, not advertised yet.V nice one - $400.
Just back from service at a very good vintage tech. He says it's in "very good shape". He replaced the RCA connectors with new high quality units.
Table sounds v good - running a vintage Shure V15 on it and that old cart never sounded better. No it doesnt match my Sota Sapphire with $800 Dynavector 10x5 - but its strong in the $500-700 price range of vintage tables.
Cosmetics - overall I'm rating at 7.5, as compared to several other unrestored examples. The base is physically great - no chips or scratches (which many of these have) - and the black lower part of base is really nice shape. But there is some discoloration of the granite. A bit of yellowing - which I haven't figured out how to clean off. Really only a few quite small spots - worst is around a small black rubber plug close to tonearm base. Couple v small spots close to controls. See last photo. Underside of platter too - which obviouisly isnt a problem, and actually gives you a chance to try your cleaning remedies before committing to a show surface. If you look close you will also see grey spots on top front corners. I'm guessing that this where the little felt pads used to be for the dustcover. Should have couple more felt dots applied is all.
Dust cover not great either - no big cracks or chips, but scratched up and/or hazed pretty badly. The metal bits and tonearm all v nice. Table deserves a new dust cover. Old one will clean up a bit, but probably only a bit.
Headshell looks a little wonky and i wasnt sure at first if it is factory - but it is. Google this table and same one appears. Very similar to vintage Marantz shells.
No cartridge at this price. Photos show an old Empire which I'll hang onto - needs stylus anyway. I have a cart or 3 if you need one, at extra cost.
Shipping? Id consider it - am good at packing, but turntables are the worst. Would need a few bucks for packing materials and my time. No refund, no returns if shipped.
Can deliver for free to Calgary or Red Deer, on my schedule. Edmonton maybe too, for gas money.
