Yamaha YP-B4


The YP-B4 is Yamaha's proud answer to the challenge of turntable design: to rotate the record smoothly and steadily at the rated speed, to hold the stylus tip at the correct angle and with the right tracking force, and to do it in easy to use, aesthetically independent of external influences.

This sophisticated turntable unit is convincing evidence of Yamaha's excellence in audio engineering and musical craftsmanship.
