Goldring GL72


Skill, care and precision are standard features of every part of the Goldring-Lenco range, irrespective of price.

So, a unit like the GL72P which is not in any sense an expensive turntable, is in every respect a good one.

An attractive teak base carries the precision made GL72 with its excellent features for ease of control and fine reproduction.

It incorporates continuously variable speeds from 30 to 86rpm

It has the lightweight L69 arm which is lowered gently on to the record by a viscously damped lowering device.

The bias compensation is simple yet effective, giving you scope to use most quality stereo cartridges.
