When I got this TT it was in a sorry state mechanicaly. I have disabled the auto-mechanism which is easy to do. The drive spindle lightly filed/emmeryed and polished. New belt ( same as PL12D) Strips of ~18 mm wide artists card paffred onto the inner platter drive rim to tone down the speed. The deraillier straightened out. New headshell fitted with Shure M75EJM @ 1.5g and antiskate set ok. The tonearm is fabulous. This is a fantastic deck now and I love it. Has an high end feel too. Clean sound and behaves the same as the PL12D
**** I'd give it MB
