Good, solid belt drive turntable made in Japan by Akai. New belt just fitted.
This has a big chunky motor, a decent J-shaped arm and a reasonably weighty chipboard plinth, much better than the usual flimsy moulded plastic chassis found on other budget turntables.
OK it's no Linn but it does sound pretty good, with a decent Audio Technica cart and stylus fitted.
Very good wow/flutter/rumble spec and auto return function.
Fitted with RCA phono plug leads and ground wire, and a detachable kettle-style power cord.
It's got a few battle scars, notably the lid which has been painted black on top in an effort to hide some obvious blemishes.
But for a starter TT which will sound considerably better than most others in it's price range (I'm thinking of you, Ion, steepletone etc), there's a lot to like. £45 Call 07400111443 Other hifi gear available
