This is the budget turntable! It has the bass, the detail, the dynamics and it plays so sweet... The secret must be in the bearing as if you spin it without the belt on it just goes on and on until it eventually stops. It's also fairly easy to set up even with the famous plinth sag.
Only a bit of luck is needed to get one in overall good condition, particularly the power supply.
