Looks very good, great tonearm, manual operation, etc but not a great TT.
Bought one for $20 in the original box with all extras including Sure M91ED at a thrift store.
So-So specs: rumble etc. See the manual.
Now here is the not so good part. When changing records the power is removed from the motor and the speed circuit is switched off. On restart the speed drifts. This occurs even when it has been adjusted on the proceeding record with little or no drift.
There are two micro switches one in the speed control circuit and the other in the power circuit.
I suspect the micro switch in the speed circuit has some internal resistance that changes slightly each time contact is made changing the total speed circuit resistance therefore the speed.
It's going on the repair table soon and I will update this review on the out come.
