Now thats a beast!. That looks like an eminently 'restorable' turntable.
Actually, it looks like it's in pretty good shape.
How does it bounce on those 3 springs?What sort of condition is the belt and idler wheel in?
I reckon with a custom made and lower profile plinth it would be a very nice looking turntable.
Don't remember much about those old Ortofon arms/cartridges sound wise,but when i did work in radio stations in the late 70's and 80's they were in lots of Station production studios.All i can remember is that they took a beating from lots of careless jocks with no complaints.
Mabye make a plinth that will cater for an additional
more modern arm/ cartridge combo mounted at the back or other side of the table.
There is one for sale on Ebay at the moment.http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Turntable-ORPHEU ... 240%3A1318
