Philips GA 212
Sprung chassis belt drive turntable with electronic speed control
The Philips GA212 record player features electronic speed control employing a tacho-generator, photo-electronic off switch, floating suspension of turntable and pick up arm and electronic touch controls for start, speed selection and stop.
The important advantages which result from the electronic speed control are high stability of turntable speed, negligible wow and flutter and accurate speed adjustment.
The slow running high-torque motor, the high quality platter bearing and the precision drive belt ensure exceptionally low rumble transmission.

Excellent value for money. I have a GA212 since 1973. One motor and one belt changed since then. Now playing with an Empire MC-20EII cartridge, at 2gr weight. Lovely sound through new RCA type cable and Yamaha CR-820 receiver. Homemade speakers!
