I have very limited experience with TT but this one seems to be rather good. With a basic cartridge it sounds very nice. I purchase this unit new in 1976, first year of manufacturing. Great design and operation. Good looking and came with hinged
clear lid. Automatic return and precision operation. Can't wait to put a better stylus on it.
