Garrard 125SB


For many years the Garrard reputation for quality products has been particularly associated with popular single record playing units. This category of unit, dominated by Garrard's own famous SP25 series, is now upgraded with the introduction of Model 125SB.

From the list of principal features, the discerning user will note that the belt drive mechanism and new swan neck style pickup arm are usually found on much more expensive units.

Details such as the rotating record spindle (which prevents wear at the record centre) and the miniaturised slide-in cartridge carrier (much reducing the mass of the pickup arm) are typical of engineering developments which maintain Garrard as leaders in this field.

As a pleasing bonus to high fidelity sound, care has been taken in the styling of Model 125SB to render it a delight to view.

Model 125SB may be supplied as a deck or as a module or incorporated with other equipment, such as in a music centre.
