Garrard SP 25
Four Speed Idler Drive Motor Unit with Optional Wooden Base
The Garrard SP25 is a four speed single record playing unit incorporating an improved tubular pickup arm with a resiliently mounted counterbalance weight and a calibrated dial to set stylus force easily.

The pickup returns to it's rest automatically after playing a record and unit switches off.

This was another of my first reasonable quality turntables. It was a medium-fi work-horse and, like the AT6, responded very well. It's a collectors item now.

in its day was used rather a lot by manufacturers as a turntable to use with there stereo equipment. was a bit of a joke realy only worthy of playing 7 singles at a party when no one cares what it sounds like.
