OK, here are some photos of this turntable which I picked up for a song on Ebay. First the deck as the user sees it. It's a nice looking deck.
Then the tonearm. Note the "inside force canceller (anti-skate device) to the right, and the "lateral balancer" to the left.
Next, the drive mechanism, ala Thorens TD-124 and Garrard 301. That's a belt driven idler! Motor to the right, idler pulley to the left along with the idler wheel. The orientation is with the front of the TT to the left in this photo. Pulley has two positions, 33 1/3 and 45 RPM settings, adjusted with a switch on the deck. Second photo shows the drive mechanism with the motor to the top.
Finally, under the platter, there's instructions on the simple switch from 60Hz to 50Hz. Simply change the position of the belt on the motor and pulley. It's a simple design that makes the deck functional for most power supplies.
The only drawback that I see so far is the fairly light platter. On the KP-5021, the platter and drive mechanism are better. But both decks are hard to find. In any case, so far this TT is the quietest I've owned by a MILE!!! Still looking to find a cartridge that works with the tonearm. The Grado Prestige Black I fit first as a test wouldn't balance, even with the counterweight screwed forward as far as it would go.
An old Shure M80E with it's mounting shell allows it to balance but I don't yet have a good needle for it.
I'm excited to find a cartridge that'll work and get it running. Will report back. Also, have a simplistic manual Ill try to upload soon.
