Price reduced for quick sale! When I first looked at this turntable i wasn't very impressed. It wasn't until I got it home and disassembled it i realized it was much higher quality that I first thought. I decided it was worth the fully modding treatment. It has a rather massive 4 pole synchronous motor ( no puny 9 volt toy motor) which belt drives the full turntable. The turntable thrust bearing is about 2 inches long with a ball bearing resting on the bottom. Also the deck is heavy stamped metal not plastic. The thing I really hated about it was the cheap and flimsy plastic lower base assembly. So I decided to scrap it and make a solid multi ply wooden base. The plastic upper base was kept and the voids were filled with damping material. Then the 2 sections were screwed together and are very solid. I installed and new drive belt and an ADC K8(blue) cartridge with new stylus. I wanted to add the very effective dampening material I usually use but there was not enough clearance so instead I installed closed foam gasket material to the inner edges of inner and outer sections of the platter. I cleaned and relubricated the motor bearings and the turntable bearing. I also installed a double shielded audio cable set just under 3 ft long. Longer cables can be installed if desired at an additional cost. I installed a bubble level and with the aid of the 4 leveling feet on the bottom, the unit can be put in perfect level.
The unit sounds great and has a natural clean sound with that ADC cartridge. The dust cover is dark tinted but does have some marks and abrasions. Comes with 45 rpm adapter and attached power and audio cables.
