Quartz PLL Servo-Controlled Direct-Drive turntable (1980)
The DP-60L has a head shell integrated into the arm tube, with its connector portion located at the base of the tube.
The tube is a replaceable S-shaped arm tube with standard 4P connector.
By replacing the low mass arm tube with the S-shaped tube, virtually all head shells or integrated cartridges can be utilised.

I just can't say enough about this table. it is truly an audio enthusiasts dream in all respects. I purchased mine 5 years ago in mint shape on ebay and haven't looked back. Everything about it is outstanding, from the dead silent motor to the interchangeable tonearm tubes. They just don't build them with this kind of quality and craftsmanship any more. At 27lbs it is solid. The speed of the platter is bang on and unwavering. I have other quality turntables but I always seem to come back to this one. Currently I have a Denon DL 103R mounted on the S arm and I am constantly amazed at how accurate and full the sound reproduction is with the DP-60L and DL103R combination, in my mind, a match made in heaven. If the opportunity arises to purchase one of these units, I couldn't recommend it more!
