DP 62L

I recently bought a mint DP 62L and have been very impressed with the sound so far.The ease of use is especially nice and I love the way it looks. I only received the straight arm and Have installed a Signet 111E MC cartridge.
I wish I knew the arms effective mass, but guessed it for compliance.
I will hopefully find an S arm to try.
Great turntable.

Well Loved

I bought this turntable in the mid/late Eighties and loved the sound from every album played. Haven't used it in years now but I still have it in storage!
