Hi,
I know of them and there's a manual in the library, but I've never seen one yet alone heard one :?

If it's in good condition and working order, 100 Euro for a Micro seems like a good deal. Can you get to hear it before you buy?

Regards,
JaS

No, I'm not familiar with this one either. I think it's a lower/mid range model. However, anything made by Micro Seiki for 100 Euro sounds like a good deal if it is in good condition. Does it come with an arm and, if so, do you know which arm? Micro arms are generally very good.

According to the specs avail in the Lib here the Solid 1 is a decent
entry-level TT from the midseventies. The specs given are very similar
for such models from various brands of that time. I doubt its noticeble
better build than its competitors from Hitachi,Sony,Technics etc. pp..
For 100 bucks you will probably find something better,like a Dual 510
or Thorens TD-115. Which have not the "big name" but deliver big quality
for the cost with older "soft hanged" MM-carts like Ortofon M20FL Super.

Hi,

Davidsss, the turntable is with arm but I dont know that arm is. This Micro Seiki is in perfect condition and I thought in Sumiko Pearl cartridge.

Looks in very good condition. No idea which arm that would be but going by the manual here it is the standard arm for that TT. Can't find it on the My Micro site either. I have seen a couple of other Micro Seiki sites but recently lost my bookmarks!

Hi

Like davidsss wrote, it is a good, 'solid' turntable. It looks in good condition too and the arm will probably be Micro's own. And you have the convenience of a removable headshell.

If you haven't got it yet, I think you should go for it.

It's a very good table with a decent arm. It does, however, need some isolation or decoupling from the surface on which it will rest. My suggestion is to use Vibrapods or sorbothane pucks under the corners.

Thanks at all,
I have already bought the turntable, now I ask your suggestion for cartridge.
