ERA Eramatic 5


This is the top of the ERA line: It is for those who want convenience and yet demand state of the art sound reproduction.

As in the Eramatic 3, the automatic cycle is controlled by means of a second motor, completely independent of the drive motor, together with a camshaft and a photoelectric cell sensing mechanism.

The Eramatic 5's unique K-5 tone arm, with its virtually frictionless pivot on the same axis as the record, completely eliminates warp wow.

This engineering masterpiece includes an oiled walnut base and dust cover.
